Words cannot express how sad but how joyful we are feeling. Janet was one special lady. To God be the glory for her life and the witness of that life. I will not forget.
Much love to Mervyn and the Horrell whanau.

Heartfelt best wishes for this difficult time to Mervyn; Simon, Bryce and families; and Anne. I am sad not to be able to be at the celebration of Janet's life today; she was and is very special to me. To me, Janet epitomises my favourite Mother Teresa poem:
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realise it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfil it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.

Rest in peace, Lovely Janet.
