I’m so sorry to learn of Janice’s passing. I have such good memories of time spent with her, Mike, and John when we were growing up and my family visited hers. Uncle Johnny and Aunt Pauline were so loved by us all and that loved transferred to my cousins. Going to Sheridan to see them was always so much fun and we treasured those times.I pray that God will surround you with His love and peace during the days to come and that you will find comfort in your memories of Janice. May He bless you all.
Jessica sending prayers to you and your family....❤️🙏🏻
My memories of Janice are so fond: from childhood, when she would always open the door with a smile and pack us full of Avon goodies, enjoying Chinese buffet together and a more recent visit where she was excited about her musical knickknack. We watched and listened several times back to back. I know she loved her Beatles, her daughter Jacinda and the grandkids deeply. I am so thankful for all the work and love she put into youth on a mission to change their trajectory. She will be missed but always remembered lovingly by all. Sister, Jacinda, and all others feeling this deep loss, may God be your strength and comfort today and in the future. May your fond memories of Janice keep your heart warm and face smiling even amidst the tough days.
Janice was such a good person with a great outlook. She loved her family, friends, and country.She will be missed!
I will always remember all of our late night talks, our silly jokes abt sasha and duece. My dog sure did love you and ik u loved him... I'll forever be thankful for the help you gave me with a place to live. Granted it didnt happen exactly like I planned but I dont regret being with u for all the late nights and bad nights and u listening to my crying over the same thing that will never change. You taught me more abt myself than u will ever know! Then there is Jake! Boy hes gonna be so sad to hear ur gone....keep an eye on us down here and I'll see ya soon! Party with them beatles woman!
Thinking of you all during this difficult time. Prayers and love sent your way ❤
Gone but NEVER FORGOTTEN, and thanking GOD for the legacy she leaves behind. Sincerely,Merinda L (HUSSEY) David
