For a short time I was married to Janice's stepson, Darin. She was very kind to me, and treated me like a daughter. My thoughts are with her children at this time.

She was a wonderful woman and will dearly be missed. Her daughter, Londa, has brought our son, Brian, all the happiness he could ever ask for. We're glad her pain is gone and she suffers no more.
