“The thing I remember best about Janice is that she was such a friendly person. When I ever encountered her, she
would alway greet me by name and say hello. We were not in the same class, but everyone was always treated the same.”

“Dear John, Keith and Joan, Mackensie and Wesley,
We are saddened to read that your wife, mom, and grandma passed away. We know how close that you were and what a void that this will create in your lives. It was wonderful that you moved to Spencer, just down the street from our former house, and allowed these more recent years to be full of the opportunities to make lasting memories to comfort and sustain you in the days ahead. During this time of sorrow, may you always be aware of the Lord's abiding love and mercy. Our deepest sympathy-Tom and Mary Galik”
