    Janice, I’m sorry I didn’t know about your mom’s death in time to come to the visitation. I try to keep up with the obituaries, but I don’t have a computer at home, so I didn’t hear about it until after the service Sunday. I know you took care of her a long time. May God bless you at this sad time. Because He Lives, Amy S. Osteen

    Janice, Brad, and Janna – I was so sorry to learn of the death of your mother/grandmother. All of you are so very special to me and I treasure more than you know the fun times we all had when you and Cliff and Cindy were growing up together. It was a different time back then. Love to all of you.

    Janice, sorry to hear about your mother. She was a dear lady that could get bossy at times if she didn’t think think things were right. I know you will miss her but remember she will be with daddy and the rest of her family and that you will see her again some day
