    I am so sorry to hear of Janice’s passing. I worked with her at Nationwide Insurance starting in the 1970s. When I lived in Raleigh I lived on Peoples Street right above her mother and at that time, Renee and Hope you were little girls. Janice was just a wonderful person and a great friend.

    The short time that we had as friends was well spent learning about plants and swapping some rare varieties. I will miss our talks and visits. You are one person I would love to meet again. R.I.P Janice.

    Janice was a greenhouse buddy of mine. We shared plants and growing tips with each other for many many years. We also had a lot of laughs while going through the Master Gardener training program together. She was always such a warm person and will surely be missed by many.

    I miss Janice every single day. Everyday I go in my garden and look at all the beautiful flowers you gave me. You will be missed by many people and especially all of your gardening friends. I have known you for many years and I also loved your mom. Until we again I hope you are hanging out with Ms. Mattie. .

    Just few minutes ago I realize when I was trying to contact Janice for her advice in a project of my yard that she had passed away. I met her when I was in the nursery’s business at Wake Forest. God gave me the gift to meet such incredible person, fair, warm, helpful and open mind. God keep her in his celestial kingdom.
