I fondly remember Janie as one who never met a stranger and always made you feel right at home. I was a good friend of Bobby’s (Slugo)and didn’t know of his passing. We moved to WV in 1985 and had lost touch with all my friends at George’s coffee shop. We used to play pool and go golfing together. Janie was such a special person, a loving personality.. I remember from the Venition and the club in Weirton and of course she was my friends mom. Michelle and family, I’m so sorry for your loss, both Bobby and your mom. Could someone please email me what happened to Bobby and where he’s interned so I may pay my respects? firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you and God bless, Terry Clark Wheeling, WV
