May you find comfort in knowing that Janice is safe in the memory of Jehovah God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. John 5:28,29 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out"

I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Metts was a very sweet lady. I remember her from Little Mountain Elementary when I went to school there and also as a customer of mine at Suburban Propane. She made the best peanut butter cookies at school and later shared that recipe with me. It was truly an honor to know her. She will be greatly missed. My heart and prayers are with her family. Cherish the memories.

Mr. Everett and Family,

I just now learned of "Miss" Janice's passing and informed both my girls. Our hearts are breaking for all of you. She was the kindest person. I always loved talking to her and she was my girls favorite "lunchroom lady" during their time at LMES. Please know you all are in our thoughts and prayers at this time and in the weeks to come. Get together as a family and share all your wonderful memories, both through laughter and tears. May God surround you all with his everlasting Love and Peace.

What a wonderful, kind, and gentle woman. She was always so very kind to our family. I never heard her complain or say a bad thing, especially through her battle with health. She was the epitome of the definition of Mother. While we shall all miss her, let us remember her life lived as an example for all of us. Lee, Carol, Joseph, and Amelia
