Janice was a coworker and sat in the next cubicle over. Janice was one of the people who were very helpful when I first started at NRF. She was always willing to share information when needed. We are going to miss her creativity and smiles. When we all go back to work in the office it just won't be the same without her. She will be missed. Rest in peace Janice. Until we meet again.

Please again accept my deepest sympathy in this very trying time. My heart goes out to you and my prayers are with you. Know that you are in my thoughts.

I pray God gives you strength and comfort. You brought so much joy and happiness to her life.

The pain will never subside but in time the good memories will again bring a smile.

She will always be with you.
