I do remember Janice from school, but also my bus route, she rode the bus I drove. She was very nice young lady, very quiet. I remember when they were building her new house, it seemed to take forever to build it and when it was done, so big and beautiful. Rest in peace dear classmate, fly high with the Eagles!! God blessing on family.
