My condolences to all her family and friends. I was so lucky to get to know her. There was always that twinkle in her eye and that smile on her face that said she was up to something. We had many laughs together and I will cherish those moments. She will be greatly missed. Rest in peace my friend, until we meet again.

Janice was one of the "Kids on the Block" when I grew up in the Lindale neighborhood. She and her brothers lived down on the corner of Hoffman and Reid. We all played together doing KID things. Janice was very athletic and was generally chosen among the first kids on any team, leaving us less athletic kids for last. She was a super friend and a great person. Those who knew Janice was better people for having her as a friend. Know peace!
