To my classmate Randy and the rest of Janice's family I send my condolences.  As a student at AHS I got the priviledge of working the switchboard in the office right next to Janice.   She taught me alot about how to work office equipment.

Dear Family,  I am so sorry I was unable to attend your mother's funeral.  Janice was such a special person.  It was always such a joy to visit with her in the office at school and later stop at their home with meals on wheels.  No matter what their age or health condition, that goodby for a while to a parent is not easy.  I pray the Lord will comfort you with His love and His word during those moments of need.  In Christ's love, Joyce Birkhold

Denise and Family,
I was very sorry to read of your Mother's passing.  I remember working with her in the elementary office that hot summer between junior and senior years.  She was always kind to me.
