I am so very sorry to hear of Janice’s passing. She was such a sweet fun lady and she loved her kids so very much. And what a beautiful voice she had, now she will be sharing that voice as a angel. Prayers and love for her entire family.

I am deeply grieved to find out that Janice passed away. She was such a beautiful woman with a beautiful soul. She is loved and will be missed dearly. I will keep her smile, her wit, and her charm in my memories always. She was dear to me. It was hard enough losing her as a resident. But it is even harder knowing she is no longer on this earth. I guarantee she is dancing in heaven right now with the biggest smile she has ever had!
