I love you, Aunt Janice, I was in shock when I ran across your obit, yesterday, never knew you had passed away, but I know you are flying high with all the other Angels, R.I.P.

I first met Janice when I married and moved behind ADC Mine Services at Omar. Was pleasantly surprised to find a friend to talk to and give me advice on becoming a new wife. Janice was so good to me and through her I found out that we were distantly related and that I was good friends with some of her sisters. I have such fond memories of her and cherish the way she welcomed me in her home and to sit on her porch and chat. You all are in our prayers as you go through this difficult time.

Hello, old friends. Sorry to read about the passing of your mom. I pray God provides much comfort in this troubling time. Many years have come and gone since we were friends on Horsepen, but those were special times. When I reflect on those years, you guys are a large part of what make them so special. Please know you all are in my thoughts and prayers, and I think of you often. May God richly bless you all. I know the loss you feel, but I know God is an awesome God, especially in times such as these. May God bless you and provide you much comfort. Patricia (Stanley) Toler.
