I want you to know that I am very sorry about the death of Janice. Gary and my kids went to school together and they were in Youth groups together at church. She was a very kind and friendly person. You have my sincerest sympathy. May God grant you peace and comfort in this difficult time. I recently lost my husband and I know the loss you are feeling is very deep. I will pray for you and your family.

My sympathy to you and your family. I was so sorry Janice and I had to cancel our lunch this summer due to her fall. I did talk to her on the phone and was so glad we kept in touch. God Bless you!

I am so sorry to hear about Janice. I have such wonderful memories of her when I lived in Marissa. She was such a wonderful person and would do anything for you. Such good times we had at church in Evangelical Daughters. You will be missed by all.

I was so sorry to hear about the death of Janice. I always looked forward to seeing and talking to her when we came to Marissa for your sausage dinners. I asked about her when we were there last month and her friend told me about her fall. I am sure that she told Janice that I asked about her. She was such a friendly, wonderful person. Our prayers are with you and your family.
