Janice was always so pleasant and kind. We always enjoyed seeing her, and she will truly be missed. Our whole office wishes your family great comfort and peace.
So sorry to hear of Janice's passing and that I didn't know in time to attend the funeral. She was one of my best friends in high school, and although I have only seen her a couple of times since we graduated, she will always be a part of me. As Jesus holds her in his loving arms, may her family and friends be comforted with the knowledge that she is safe and whole at this time.
