I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, Bob and family. I have great memories of gathering at your house when we all served together on the board of the Eureka Youth Recreation Association. Janice was a good hostess.

Janice was a wonderful neighbor. I would go over to visit and, oh the laughs! Once we went on vacation and didn't tell her...she was upset because she was watching out for the neighbors. Coming home at night we would always see the light on in her living room, so I guess we checked on her too.:kissing_closed_eyes: She had a kind and gentle spirit, loved her family. Our prayers are with you, Bob, and the family. She will be missed. Mike and Kathy leman

I have so many great memories of Aunt Janice because she was such a kind, generous, loving, and humorous woman. Oh she could tell a tale and make us all laugh so hard, herself included! She had the biggest heart for children and made so many children feel loved and special, myself included. And while a small thing, I always loved Aunt Janice's sugar cookies, and I treasure the day she sat down with me in 2011 and gave me that recipe and talked me through her tricks for making the cookies so magical. I named that recipe "Aunt Janice's sugar cookies," and I am so glad I did because now I will see her name (and her in my memories) every time I am in my recipe book. As my sister Darlene said, Aunt Janice was like a mother to me. Sending all my love to Uncle Bob, Tricia, Becki, Larissa, Alex, Bentley, and Kennedy.
