Sandra Witte (Taylor) (1962)

Janet was a dear friend during our high school days. We spent all our time together, mostly at her house because she lived in town and I lived five miles outside on the Boone/Montgomery County Line. Many a morning we spent around the stove trying to keep warm until we got our clothes on to attend Thorntown High School. We were very close up until the time we married and went our sperate ways. Through the years, I thought of her often. She was a very special person and touched the lives of all who came into her life. Before her death, our paths crossed again in South Carolina and we were able to reconnect again until she became very ill. I will always remember you and think of you often. Your dear friend, Sandy (Witte) Tayor.
