  3. I loved Janet. We had many wonderful family times together when we were raising our boys. Even though we didn’t see one another in latter years, we were always able to take up right where we left off on the last visit. She will definitely be missed. Charlie and I send our love, sympathy, and prayers for all the family.

  4. She was such an awesome lady. The 3 of us Veeck kids spent a lot of time with your whole family as kids. I have memories of her and my mom tag teaming Cub Scout den meetings.
    She touched so many lives and will be missed.
