    I will miss Janice so much. We spent all of our time together when we were teen agers. I have so many good memories. Soney and I stood up with her and Lynn when they got married. As we got older, we weren't together every day but we were there for each other if needed. I have several items that Janice made for me. She was so talented. I loved her like a sister. The good Lord will take good care of her. One day we will be with her again.
