I've known Janice since we were infants and, although we didn't see each other very often, I've always thought of her as a very dear friend and her death greatly saddens me. Jim, you and your family will be remembered in my prayers.

Such sad news...Our families were virtually as one growing up...and Janice's radiant smile lit up every dark corner.  She was beautiful in every way.  Though she is gone, my recollections of her can only bring a smile...and those wonderful memories cannot be taken away.  I will treasure those.
My sincere and loving thoughts to Jim and the family and to Joyce.  Please do feel warm and loving arms embracing you from across the Pond.

Jan was like another sister to me when I was younger and I was so sad when she and Jimmy and the kids started moving around and away from Lake Worth, Florida.  She was always beautiful inside and out and I always thought my brother was so fortunate to have such a wonderful friend and wife.  She had so many amazing talents from sewing, to crafts and of course, incredible cooking skills.  Oh sweet lady, as tears fall I think of you and smile through them.  You live on here through your children and great memories!

So sorry to hear of Jan's passing.  We were friends in school, but hadn't seen her since, until Jeanie Whiting and I had lunch with she and Jim here in Winter Haven last year.  So glad we did.  My prayers go out to Jim and family and to her sister, Joyce.

My deepest sympathies to Jan's family.
Jan was one of the first people I met when I moved here and joined COKAS. I appreciated the way she welcomed me into the Church and always made a point to say hello with her warm smile.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

God Bless

So sad about the passing of Jan.  She was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend to so many.  Always upbeat and optimistic, her smile lightened many of our days. Her faith and determination were good examples for all of us.  We know she now rests in the arms of the Lord in eternal peace.  We pray that sweet memories of Jan's time on Earth will bring some solace to Jim and all the family, and that God will give them the strength and faith to sustain them during this time of sorrow and loss.
