    I will always remember Janice as the crazy, fun loving teenager playing basketball with my sister, Anna, and I when we were attending Spring Creek Baptist Church. She was a joy to be around. In recent years Janice would stop and see my Mother as she went by on her way to her Mom & Dad’s before her Mom passed away. Then our Mom passed away and she was there for us. A light has gone out with Janice gone and she will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Linda and Larry now. May God Bless you during this difficult time. Gwen McDaniel

    This was a really sad day for me after waking and seeing Janice’s death in the morning paper. I met all her wonderful family through Janice. We haven’t seen other in a long time, but when we did, she acted like it was just yesterday. Janice & I had some great times together and we always had fun. If you were with Janice, you were going to have fun. My thoughts & prayers go out to Larry & Terry, Linda & Larry & her nieces. I will get to see my good friend, when her & I meet in heaven. God Bless All of You!
