Praying for the family of this kind and beautiful girl. So sad to hear about your tremendous loss. We only knew Janasia for a little while, but learned we were family and we were so glad to know her. My children were her young Aunts and Uncles (Zack, Alex, Torianna & Sarena Berwald) We hope you feel God's grace and peace today and always.Kelly Berwald and Family
