Janice was a loved classmate. She was such a calm, strong, smart, pretty girl and we were great friends in school. May you all find peace in this time of sorrow. I won’t be at the funeral due to a prior commitment, but I will be praying for you all.

Jan and I became fast friends when we met 32 years ago. With each year that passed, my admiration for Jan grew. She loved the City of Gadsden - many owe appreciation to Jan for the efficient manner employee benefits and WC were handled. More important though is the person Jan was... big hearted, kind by nature, welcoming to all, slow to anger, fiercely loyal, LOVED SKEETER, and the best of friends even if we didn’t talk every week. Rest In Peace my sweet friend! I will see you again. Necia
