Joey and I were so sorry to hear of Ms Janie’s passing. May the family take comfort in knowing that she is now with Mr. Read Outland in their new heavenly home. God bless the beautiful family she has left behind and give them comfort in knowing they too will one day be reunited with Ms Janie
Peggy, Josephine, & Vivian,
I know this is a very difficult time for all of you. I regret that I am unable to go to the services. Hold on to your memories of the good times. She will always be with you in your heart. She helped make you who you are today. She will not be forgotten.

Pat and I would like to extend our Deepest Sympathy to this fine family. Pat and I both have fond memories of days spent in school and in Conway with several members of this family and while we cannot attend the visitation, we will have you in our thoughts and prayers.
What a dear lady she was! Mrs. Martin lived across the street from my mother, Madie Daughtrey, for many years. She was a wonderful neighbor and friend to her and my step-father, Porter Daughtrey. She was always bringing over delicious food to them. Her visits meant so much. Wingate and Janie were so dear to them. Knowing they were so close was also a comfort to me since I was in school at East Carolina or later living in Elizabeth City. She was loved by many and will be missed by all. May God comfort you and give you His Peace as you go through this difficult time.
