  1. Janice has been a wonderful friend for 45 years. We shall always remember her as a kind, loving and generous woman. Our personal family get-togethers will be cherished forever.
    Today it is hard to imagine a time when Gwinnett County did not have a structured soccer program. The Gwin family was there at the beginning, and brought many of us with them, out of DeKalb, to help create the first Gwinnett Soccer Association.
    Janice’s caring and dedication to others will serve as her legacy.

  2. Revelation 21:4
     And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away

  3. So very sorry for your loss. We will continue to lift you all up in prayers for peace and comfort.
    Love, Tracy

  4. For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 3:16

  5. Sorry to hear about your lost I know it can be difficult to see the brighter side of things when we are faced with these trials but god does promise us that we will have a ressurection and soon we will be reunited with our loved ones again my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family (acts 24:15)

  6. My sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one.   Find strength and comfort from God.  At  2 Corinthians  1:3, 4  it describes God as “the God of all comfort who comfort us in all our trials”.  This promise assures the family that by turning to God you can receive help during this difficult time.  The  bible also promises that soon death will be no more Revelation 21:3, 4  and the hope of a resurrection John 5:28, 29.
