My Love to all of Janice's Family & Friends. Although I am not blood related, I always felt like one of them. My husband was her cousin, Jesse Jr. Gasaway. I stayed in contact with both she & her brother, Charles Ed, after my husband passed away. He was always sending me family news & info for my Ancestry History of the families. I spoke to Janice quit often & will miss her so much. Love to all Dot.
The volunteers and staff of the Northeast Arkansas Humane Society send our sincere sympathies to Janice's family, and we thank you for remembering the homeless animals, even in your time of grief.
My condolences to Janice’s nephews and nieces. She always told me I was named after her every time I saw her. While we are about 3rd cousins, I always felt a special connection and affection for her because of our shared name. I will miss her helping me with our family history.
