She was my crohns buddy and friend. We both understood with each were going through but we also talked about other things (like our husband's and kids and grandkids). We shared a lot together, sometimes we could laugh and sometimes we could cry. Janice was one of the strongest women I knew. And sometimes when I was feeling sorry for myself, I would just think of Janice and snap out of it. So my friend, I will miss you greatly and never forget you.

To Gary and kids and grandkids: I know you heart at this time is breaking, it will for a while and we will pray that your heart will be healed. We are so sorry for your loss.
