I'm sorry to hear of the loss of Janice! I met her as we celebrated David Altrichter at the Greater Northern Lehigh Spirit Awards in 2020, and she had a light and kindness that was extremely memorable. Sending love to the Altrichter family.

Please accept my sincere condolences. Janice was a true friend. I was with her as a Red Hatter for many years and most recently with her in our little lunch group. Janice was a wonderful person and will be sorely missed. She now is in the arms of Jesus. My prayers for her whole family.
