Dear David and Family,

Arnie and I were both so thrilled when you moved in and we became neighbors and then friends. Janis was always so delightful and kind. It was our honor and pleasure to know her.

Please accept my sincerest expression of sympathy. Her memory will be a blessing.

To David and for your entire family:

Although we have not been in touch for quite a while, Janice's passing saddened me but also encouraged me to reflect about the times I would spend at Uncle Charlie and Aunt Pauline's home and to spend time with Janice and Clarice. Janice was a spark in my young life and I have such fond memories of her warmth towards me as her cousin of seven years younger. May Janice rest in peace and please know that we are thinking of you.

Big hugs,
Steve Kassels

Dear David and family:
I was very saddened to learn of Janis‘s passing. Even though we had not seen each other for many years, I have many fond memories of our childhood days visiting my cousins in Teaneck. I particularly enjoyed being with Janis-She was four years older than me, and I had a pre-adolescent crush on her. I will always remember how warm and sweet she was.
May her memory be a blessing to all of you.
