Craig and I were so sorry to hear of Janice's passing. She was a sweet lady always at her husband's side both busy around their home. She adored her grandchildren and found joy watching them grow. Her daughter Lisa was a wonderful daughter and in the end a devoted caregiver. Janice was blessed with a great husband,children ,grandchildren and great grandchildren. She will be missed by all but now is in a better place.
