February 4, 2020

My sincerest condolences --- Janice was a kind, hardworking and selfless friend. As a young, ‘wide-eyed’ newbie to the Bureau many years ago, she took me under her wing. We soon became friends, eventually roommates for a time, and adventured outside of work over the years, traveling on a myriad of excursions up and down the I-95 corridor to WVA. She was always up for an adventure, even to my family gatherings in PA. My family was very fond of Janice and always asked me about her. Although we didn’t keep in touch as much I would’ve like when she retired, I often thought of her, dropping her a line, especially around her birthday. She will always be Janice, but to me aka Dino. I will miss her. Sincerely, Colleen F. Costello
