Janet was married to my Dad, Gary Somsen, who also passed away years ago. My Dad and Janet knew how to throw laughter into every situation. I know he loved her very much and enjoyed being with her and her kids. I will be attending with my Sister, Erica, to represent my Dad. We are so sorry for your loss.
