It was with much sadness that we read of Janice's passing. It has been many years since we have seen her but she always held a special place in our hearts and the hearts of all the firefighters at Heath. She had a beautiful smile and a gift for making everyone she met feel better just by knowing her.
My wife and I will say a special prayer for you and your family and hope you remember all the good times you had together.
May god hold you and your family in the cradle of his arms and comfort you in your sorrow.

Tom, We are so sorry to hear about Janice. She has been my life time friend. I just recently was preparing a reunion of our old neighborhood childhood friends and was planning a visit this weekend. Was such a shock when this was seen in the paper. I had no idea she was sick. She was the sweetest person I ever knew. I was blessed in having her as a friend. We will have you and your family in our prayers. We will be thinking about you and wishing you courage to help you through and hoping your memories will warm your heart always.

Janice was my neighbor for almost 20 years. She always had a smile on her face and my 3 kids enjoyed walking up the street to see her. So sorry for the loss, she loved her family more than anything. I will always remember her playing with her grandkids. HUGGGSSSSSS to the family.

Dear John and family,
My condolences are sent to you and your family on the sudden death of
Janice while in Hospice care. Janice always had a perpetual smile, gentle spirit, and kindness for everyone who came in contact with her. Her family and friends meant everything to her and she was so proud of each of you. Always treasure the memories she created with you over the years. She loved living in Heath and raising her family here. With faith, love, kindness, delicious food, celebrations, and humor you grew together as a family. Janice will be missed, but will never be forgotten because you will store her memories forever in your heart.
