I've been knowing Janice for 20 years plus, since i started at BWXT,and learned that she knew my family and most of Lynchburg. She was a dear angel on earth, and now a angel in heaven bc she has helped 1000s of people. Some people I think didn't know how to take her personality, with her rolling her eyes at you and that grin, it was somewhat humorous, but whatever advice she gave you , you better had took note to it. R.I.P in heaven Sweet Lady!

24K Jan, my Auntie in friendship. I'm thankful to have known such a beautiful, sweet, gentle, fly and wise soul for most of my life. This picture of you smiling at my niece and daughter I will cherish 4ever. I always said I wouldn't have children because I wanted to live life like 24K Jan, single and free. But God had other plans lol and you were so happy for me. Janice thank you for loving me and my brothers like your own. Peace be still.

Those of our people who have died will live again! Their bodies will come back to life. All those sleeping in their graves will wake up and sing for joy. As the sparkling dew refreshes the earth, so the Lord will revive those who have long been dead. (Isaiah 26:19)

I met Janice at B&W many years ago. We always had something to laugh and talk about. She was a person with a heart of gold and was always willing to help or offer advice. She will be sadly missed. I'm reminded of the King James version found in 2 Corinthians 5:8; We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. May Janice Rest in Heaven♥
