    Red and all the family: I was sorry to just learn of Janice’s going to glory. She and I were the best of friends in those years at Central and I loved her very much. However, life happens and we lost touch until I saw she and you at a Central reunion. You were in Greensburg then, I think. I know that she is with God and that He will give you rest and peace–just know that one of His gifts are memories. Pull those out often and enjoy them. God bless all of you, I know she was proud of each of you.

    I wish I had known Janice was near. We were close friends a longtime ago. I pray for families because I know how you suffer right now. My husband has been gone since 2112 and it was really hard at first but now I love talking about him. God knows exactly how grief works. God bless and keep you all. My prayers are with you.
