To Jaime, Buffie and family—

Our sincere sympathy upon the passing of your mother Janice.
Jaime and Buffie were great caregivers with their faithful visits
to her in assisted living. Janice loved her jigsaw puzzles as she had one set up all of the time .
May she now rest in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior eternally.

My sweet Nanny. She loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren with all her heart. Every Sunday, she would cook a huge lunch for anyone who came over that day. It was always delicious and filling. She could barely stay seated long enough to have a conversation. Once we'd get her to sit down, we'd all sit in the living room and talk and drink coffee while Pops would sit in the family room and watch sports. After visiting, we'd do any dishes that were left over and Nan would get back to cleaning her house from top to bottom. She loved cooking meals, taking care of her flowers and gardens outside and spending time with her family. We will miss her dearly.
