    Love you mom.
    What a fight you had in you but you finally made it to the other side of the moon!

    I was fortunate to have been a part of Janice’s life for the past 1.5 years and I will treasure all the memories she left me with. I always enjoyed hearing the stories of her childhood, and where she came from. I even enjoyed the 9:00pm phone call to help her come find her glasses, only to discover they were on her head when I got there. I will miss her delicate voice, her sharp wit, her kind words, her hugs, her independence and the way her face lit up when I walked up the stairs. I always called her ‘pretty lady’ and that’s how I’ll always remember her. I loved her like my own mom and as sad as I am to know she’s gone, I’m happy for her to be reunited with Melody, Ricky and Dale. Rest in peace pretty lady. I love you and miss you

    Loved her laughter and joy when everyone was together. Included me in the family as soon as I got to know Kim and Melody when they first moved to Redmond

  • Pam Fischer says:

    Happy you are no longer in pain and you are at peace. As Kim said, you fought to the end and are now with so many loved ones.

  • Lynnette / Lynnie says:

    Rest in peace Aunt Janice. I will always remember your smile and warm hugs.
