I will miss Janice, her smile and her silly sense of humor. I will miss her fun soap opera improv and how she always inquired about being your favorite. Her heart was full of gratitude for even the simplest of things and her smile of appreciation would brighten your world. Janice reminded us to live simply, love deeply and laugh often. She was an angel then and always.

When I think of Aunty Janice, I think of her sassy and joyfully irreverent sense of humor, her deep loving kindness and her flair for dramatic storytelling, which often engaged everyone around her in a re-enactment of a soap opera style romance. Every time I eat in a Chinese restaurant, grab an iced coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts, or pick up a bottle of shampoo, I will think of Janice. I will miss her deeply, but I will always carry her memory with me.

My favorite memories of Aunty Janice....

I remember how she was always asking if she could get a cup of coffee, but she was quick to remind me that I didn’t have to tell the staff.... or my mother. Her second try was always for decaf. Sometimes I have to admit I would cave and let her have some. It still makes me laugh..... our little “secret.“

The other part I love, is how she was always so focused on feelings. If you sat talking with her long enough, you’d always get a “Do you love me?” “Am I your favorite aunt?” Or “Is your mother mad at me? .... was it that coffee I drank?”

and she had this really beautiful tendency of not only asking us how we ourselves were doing, but also of encouraging checking in on one other. “Have you heard from (fill in name)? I’m worried about her you know”

And in her own little way, she would always end up drawing our hearts back to one another.... she valued family, she valued loving connections. She was like that... and that's the legacy she will leave behind. She simply left love in her wake.

Thank you Aunty Janice for all the beautiful memories, the hugs, the laughs and the tears. Thank you for always pairing it down to what matters most. You are loved, you will be missed, and I can’t wait to see you again.

Janice, my memories of you from childhood center mostly around puzzles. You loved to do puzzles with us, and my sisters and I relished the opportunity to have your undivided attention for a while. You had the uncanny ability to become one of us, to fully immerse yourself in our imaginary world of play. I will always treasure those memories. As an adult I enjoyed taking you out to lunch (always Chinese food), getting you an illicit iced coffee, and taking you shopping to buy clothes, and other sundries. You had a surprising sense of humor, once acting out the scene of a soap opera to my husband and me, in which we formed an unlikely love triangle. I remember the mischievous look of delight on your face as you recited lines of your own invention. You were incredibly sweet to my three boys, and they loved you. You had a knack for unconditional love and forgiveness, and were always full of gratitude. These qualities are part of your legacy and I will try to live up your example. I love you, Auntie Janice, and I will miss you terribly.

I will always remember taking walks with Janice. She loved being asked to go anywhere, especially shopping. Janice loved to sit in a recliner as she had a snack and watched television. I have never seen anyone get into the Waltons or Bonanza the way Janice did.

Janice will be missed.
