To all of Janice's family, I am sorry for your great loss. Janice was one of the sweetest and kindest people i know. She loved her family and her church family so much. I know by her testimony that she is with her Lord and Savior now. "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord" II Cor.5:6-8. What a blessing that we will see her again one day. I know she will be greatly missed. May the Lord be especially near to all of you at this time. I am sorry i will not be able to attend the service but i will be lifting you up in prayer. I love you Ms.Janice.
