JANET CHAPIN JOHNSON
March 7, 1957 - May 4, 2007
On Friday, May 4th, 2007, Janet lost her battle with lung cancer and slipped between the veils to walk peacefully in the "Summerlands".
Ever true to her strong Norse beliefs, she passed on Freya's Day just as she wished.
I find some comfort knowing that Janet did not fear her passing even though she was not quite ready to let go of life. Janet touched many of our lives in so many different ways. We will never forget the words of wisdom she bestowed on us through her card and palm reading talents, or the many conversations where she enlightened us by sharing her perceptions of the many books she read or her life experiences.
I ran across this quote at the bottom of a friends email just a little while ago, and as I read each line I thought of Janet.
"To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
So…Here's to you my friend……you were loved….and... you have succeeded.
May the peace of the Lady be forever in your heart...
Merry Meet, and Merry Part, and Merry Meet again...
