Janice was the definition of "Lighting up the room". She had the ability to connect to everyone she met, make them laugh, and make them love her forever. Her clients became her friends, and were devoted to her for decades. She was a gift to anyone who knew her, and especially work with her. I will miss her every day.She was my "work" best friend.

How could you not love Janice? I met her in 1990 and was a client but also considered her a friend. I would always get a kick out of her whenever we were together or on the phone. She was a very kind, courageous and special women, so proud of her grandchildren and great-grands. I'm going to miss her so much but feel so fortunate to have had her in my life. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and closet friends. God bless.
