I am the Activity Director at Brookside Specialty & Memory Care where Janice was staying. She made an impact on all who knew her with her wonderful smile and tenacity to help wherever she could. She wouldn't take no for an answer when it came to helping to clean up after an activity, decorate the Christmas tree, whatever. She loved gospel music and fully participated whether it was a live performance or one on TV---I could tell she loved the Lord with all her heart. We will truly miss Janice! Our hearts and prayers are for Scott and the family. Ruth Grant
