Janice was a very sweet and caring lady. I remember when I was in high school I was in choir with her at Calvary. Our paths crossed again and I have had the pleasure of taking care of her.. She will truly be missed. Sorry for your loss. Lots of prayers to her family and friends.

As one of her many cousins I remember the days in Shawnee and going to Trinity Baptist Church with the Family.
My favorite memory is her setting up our little wedding in Gainesville at Aunt Betty and Uncle Bruce's house. (a total surprise) From her and Diana making us a wedding cake to providing a Minister (George Jones), and Uncle Bruce giving me away. She made our day special and I'm sure she has done for so many. She took the pictures so she wasn't in them. My prayers to all of her family she will be truly missed.
