I don't think I have seen Janice since we graduated from high school here in Maquoketa. Janice was very quiet in school, but we would visit in the lounge sometimes. I hope she had a happy life and with you children I am sure she did. Life is a gift here on Earth. So sorry for your loss.
It's been quite a few years since I had a chance to visit with her. We graduated from high school together. So sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers. Bonnie McPherson Browne
