You were one of the first friends I made at Gilchrist Hall, FSU, during the fall of 1975. Your smile and Miami swag are forever etched in my special college memories. Our clique was always together walking to the Union for step shows and watching our favorite soaps; cooking a family meal with whatever we could find in our rooms; going to football games and after parties; attending church; hanging out in front of Gilchrist and at the Sweet Shop; and yes studying for finals!!
After our time as roommates, life took us in different directions. We would occasionally see other around town and promised each other this time we would keep in touch. My friend I was so heartbroken when I received news of your passing but please know you are my forever friend. Rest in eternal peace . . .

Janice was a "precious" gift. She was always helpful to students, friends and others. She would greet you with a sly smile and chat about her family or just pleasantries. Whenever you saw her it was as if you had just left her even though it may have been weeks or months. She was a genuinely caring person.

Janice was my first college roommate at FSU, 1975-1976, and I have really great memories of our Freshman year together living in Gilchrist Hall. My heart is saddened because of her passing, but I will cherish those memories forever. I send my thoughts & prayers to the family as they go through this season of grief.

I often think of our days at Florida state university and I marvel of the great times and the great people such as yourself. Your character and heart attracted me and I regret that I did not know how to contact you just to enjoy you more. Heaven has gained an angel and I have lost a friend. Rest In Peace / I never will forget you. Janice Stephens Smith
