My sincere condolences to Garry and the entire McKellar family for the passing of Janice. I met Janice at a dinner during the construction of the Dow Diamond Baseball Stadium in 2006 where the project staff and spouses had a chance to get to meet each other and it was a fun evening. I can say that I know of very, very few other couples who had as strong a bond of love than Garry and Janice. They modeled what a faithful marriage is all about. God Bless Garry and the family that they shall find comfort in their loss.

To all of Janice's family, I'm so sorry to hear that your dear wife/mother/sister has passed away. Janice had a special spot in my heart, and I have fond memories of her, which will now be golden. You all have that great assurance of being reunited again, as God has promised us, and what a reunion that will be. I know she was welcomed Home by our dear Lord, her mom and dad, along with Jason and John Jr. Hold on to the precious memories as that is what will carry you in the days to follow. Love you all Bobbi Jo Fritz
