Playing the game, building new friendships, cooking full course meals and desserts, and sharing conversations to last a lifetime. Jan took great pride in having a beautiful yard. She also loved taking her grandchildren every summer to the lake in Saline, LA. Janice was a member of the First Baptist Church in Lake Jackson, TX.

WHEN I MUST LEAVE YOU
When I must leave you for a little while
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
And hug your sorrow to you through the years
But start out bravely with a gallant smile
And for my sake and in my name
Live on and do all things the same
Feed not your loneliness on empty days
But fill each waking hour in useful ways
Reach out your hand in comfort and cheer
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near
And never never be afraid to die
For I am waiting for you in the sky
