  1. My thoughts and prayer are with you all. Janice and Wally are together again, whooping it up in heaven. Hugs to toy all.

  2. Hello Cousins. I’m so sorry for your loss. Jan was such fun, and was such a good friend to my mom, Doris. The last time I saw Jan was about 5 years ago, at the lake, for a family reunion. I’ve missed her! Hugs to you all.

  3. Dear Janice & family,

    I am so sorry for your loss. Mike and I were just talking this morning about all the times we would go to one or another cousins place, from Cambridge to Braham or Biwabik, during the summer for a week at a time. Personally, I’m thinking it was a way to get rid of us kids for awhile shuttling us from one Aunt and Uncle to another. Must have been a ploy so you and your sisters could have a little peace. Problem is, that peace time included stitches or some other sort of injury. It was apparent when you send a pack of wolves off to play – they played hard! Other good memories (NOT) of lining up for that spoon of cod liver oil to keep things moving as it were… ;-)

    You will be missed by many Janice, but say hello to Wally, Mom & Dad (Carol/Bill), Grandma, Grandpa, Phyllis, Wilbur, Jerry…the list is long and precious.

    Rest in Peace Auntie Jan,
    Love Barry & Family
