This is James again. First I want to thank you all for the overwhelming response of love and gratitude celebrating her life from a number of familiar names...and so many others I'm sorry to say I didn't know. I wish I could thank each one of you with the same amount of care and love that came through your messages.
OK, back to business [insert cat meme here].
Mom told us there were some elements of the Cat Lovers Hop which were still unfinished. Unfortunately, she didn't go into detail on what those were. I have already been in contact with one individual, but I don't know if there are any others.
If you haven't received your prize, please e-mail me through Mom's Mom's e-mail address and I will do my best to make sure you get your prize. Here is the Winners List for reference.
Thank you for your help.

It is with great regret and sadness that I (Janis's son, James) announce that Janis passed away today after a long battle with various illness and infirmities, most recently from flu complications (as is our guess) from November.
She commented often of the craft community's generosity and kindness and I would like to thank you for that, for befriending her, participating in her Cat Hops, and all the e-mails and correspondence. The last several years were a rough and rocky road and I am grateful for all your support in sharing that journey with her, easing her burden and lifting her spirits.
While we will mourn the loss of a very dear friend, we may rejoice that she has completed her race, faithful unto death, and has received the crown of life from the hand of her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (Revelation 2:10).
Thank you again,
