So many wonderful memories.

Aunt Janice always sent me a birthday card, every year!

I imagine you hanging out with your brother now and all of your family and friends.

I will always remember you.

Janice dear,

63 years of friendship! We had so many wonderful times together. Living in Michigan, trips to Taylor River, clamming at the ocean, poker and bridge games (40 some years in the same bridge club), Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Having coffee at Des Moines Creek Restaurant. So much to remember and appreciate.

You will always be my "blood sister".

I love you dear Janice.


I will never forget you, and will always miss you.

Heartfelt condolences to Janice's family. She was a dear friend and bridge partner for many years. Janice was good at relaying jokes that she heard from co-workers before she retired and kept us all laughing. Our poker group will miss her, too. May she rest in peace.
