We were both so busy over Memorial Day weekend at different cemeteries and with our families that we did not have time to finish our research for the planned episode this week.

Janet is from the coast of Georgia and graduated from the University of Georgia as a pharmacist.

After retiring, she finally had time to do something she's always been fascinated with, cemeteries and history.
