So sorry to hear about Janice. Have a lot of fond memories going to church with all you guys and would sometimes go home with David after church. Janice would cook dinner while David and I would seem somehow to get in trouble and Ralph would give us both a good scolding. Janice always had a smile and she will be greatly missed by all. God bless you guys Wassan, Vickie, Benny and Jennifer.
