"To the family of Janice Murray:
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of such a wonderful co-worker and friend. She was truly a faithful employee; had most pleasant personality that everyone loved. She protrayed Christ in her life among us and the children whom she loved at the Masonic Home for Children. She is among angels and I know that she walks proudly. May God touch each of you.
