    🌸 May peace be with you all !

  • I always had great respect for Janice. I know she will be greatly missed. Please accept my sincere condolences.

  • When someone you Love passes, memories are what we have left. I met the Randolph’s camping in 1993. What a blessing it was to meet the whole family that summer and many more summers to follow. Such Love and strong dynamics in the Randolph’s. They took our family into their camper one awful rainy and stormy night. We were flooded in our tent on the site next to them on Fu2. We spent the whole night talking. Their camper wasn’t equipped to house their entire family but Jan n Randy took my family of 5 for the night. Jan told us the next morning we needed a camper. We set out to find one together and that was the start of a great friendship. Jan will be missed by my family as well as all who had the privilege to know and Love her. My boys often speak of Jan n Randy’s pond. They may not know it but my boys J n Zack and Tamra to this day talk about the pond at the campground they named after them. God bless their family during this sad time.

  • My Aunt Janice and Uncle Randy have been a part of my life almost as far back as I can remember. I was in 6th grade when we moved back to Massachusetts and they graciously opened their home to us while mom and dad looked for a home of our own to move to.

    Six of them and five of us didn’t seem like such and extra-ordinary thing when you are ten years old. But when you have to fit 11 people in a house that was already full with six, plan meals, get 7 kids off to school every morning and into bed at night, as well as trying to fit time in for her own husband, work, and chores, you have to have a selfless heart. Now that I’m an adult and I’ve family off my own, I can appreciate what a monumental task they were willing to take on for family.

    I could tell you many stories about my aunt. But they all come down to one thing, love of family. I don’t think I ever told her how much I appreciated her. I love you auntie, you will be missed.

  • I am so sorry for your loss, Randolph family. Jan was a kind, funny, and strong-willed person. She made me excited to come to work everyday. Though at time challenging, she was always pleasure to take care of. In our last conversation minutes before her stroke, she told me how much she loved orange marmalade and how grateful she was to have her family drive and fly in to spend time with her at the hospital. She had a deep impact on me and I will remember her fondly.

Whatever reasons we both had for everything in life. I am glad your not in pain your not suffering you where surrounded by loved ones and will be missed. I can never apologize for things I have done but I can say I love you and rest in peace. You will be missed. Your loved to this day and everyone knows your skills in the kitchen and that sewing machines. It made you happy and provided us clothes growing up. The driving road trips when we headed down south.
