  • My deepest sympathy for the loss of Janice. I have fond memories of her during her appointments with the laboratory of Watauga Medical Center in Boone. She was always so sharp and never failed to call my children by name when asking about them during her appointments. I had missed seeing her the past several years after she left Boone. I am sure I will think of her smiling face often. May God Bless you.

  • Stephanie, I was sad to hear of the loss of your Aunt Janice. I always enjoyed seeing you at the Laurels where my Dad lived. He has been gone 3 years the 25th of this month. You would bring your little dog and everyone love to see it. I didn’t know you moved your Aunt to Country Club. Again my condolences.

  • Stephanie- I loved your aunt. She never failed to make me laugh with her orneriness- and how she loved being ornery! RIP.

  • Melody, thank you. It was my Mother who was at The Laurels.She died there.

    My Aunt who brought from NC was at Country Club. My dog visited her too there.
