The first time I met Janice and Dan was when their son Shawn and I flew back East to surprise them for Christmas. We arrived at their house at 5 a.m. and had to wake Dan up to let us in. After standing in the kitchen for a while, Dan said that it was time to wake up Janice so while he went to wake her up, Shawn and I hid in a room that was off the kitchen. We heard Janice walk into the kitchen and ask why there was water on the floor. We had inadvertently tracked in some snow from outside which dripped onto the floor. Dan said he didn't know, and again Janice ask why there was water on the floor. At this time Shawn walked out of the room and said, "We need to figure out sleeping arrangements because we're both tired." Janice screamed, rub your eyes, said she was dreaming and went back to the bedroom. Shawn and I hid in the room again and waited for Janice to come back out of the bedroom. When she did, she told Dan that she had a weird dream that Shawn and a friend of his were standing in the kitchen. At this time, Shawn and I walk out again and Shawn said, "Okay mom, sleeping arrangements ... we're tired." She again screamed but this time she hugged her son for a good 5 minutes if not longer. This is always going to be my favorite memory of Janice. Rest in peace ma'am.
