My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family. Janis was like a ray of sunlight. I always looked forward to her coming into our office. When I would have to call her we would be on the phone so long that she said I better let you go before you get in trouble, but that wouldn’t happen because we all adored her. We would have such a great time talking that time just flew by. She loved talking about her vacations to Tybee Island, Moscow mules and mostly her family who she adored more than anything. I am so blessed to have known her. She will be deeply missed.
