    Jan was a friend of my mothers who passed in 2010, and through their friendship became a friend of mine. She was a caring friend and would do whatever she could to help out. I remember one time when I was hospitalized she took it upon herself to come over and plow me out during a snowstorm using my snowblower. She helped with gardening and other things also. Jan was a good friend and I will miss her dearly.

    Aunty, I miss you already and can’t believe you’re gone. God called for you too early, but I know you’ll be with me and my family even if we can’t see you. I’ll always remember our long conversations and I’ll never forget the bond we share. You’re one of my favorite people and I love you dearly. We may have lost an angel here on earth, but God has gained an angel in heaven. Love you!

    My sympathies to Janice’s family on your loss. Janice was a lovely person. We kept in touch over the years after our FAA facility at Logan Airport was closed and we each were transferred to different locations. We always had great memories of our days at BOS Flight Service and the friends we made there.
    I will miss her.
