    My deepest condolences to the Harris and HIll families. Janice and I attended Lindenwood, Jacox and Booker T. together. We walked to and from school on a daily basis. We were on email a few years ago prior to our 45th Class Reunion. I was so hoping she would attend. Though I haven’t seen her or talked to her at length since high school, I’ll always remember her as a very kind and very beautiful (inward and outward) person. Rest in Paradise neighbor and classmate.

    My heartfelt condolences to Janice and her family. She was my motivation to become a nurse! I watched, as a young girl, Janice walking pass my house almost daily. I was happy to see her when I began my training and then working at the then Medical Center Hospital system. I am sorry to hear and thought of her often. I always thought I would see her one more time.
