Janice was a special lady who loved her family very much. She was also fun and full of life. I was always surprised how well she did for her age, staying active, playing golf, cards and getting together with friends. She will be greatly missed. My deepest condolences to her family and loved ones.

May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you. John 5:28,29 says: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” My sincerest condolences to your family.
