Sunday's Obituary: Janice Murrell's Funeral Program

I was seventeen when my father's sister passed away. Janice Elaine Murrell was a beautiful and loving spirit. She had a wonderful sense of humor and she loved to laugh. I explained recently to my kids that sometimes in life you don't get what you need in the shape or form you think it's supposed to come in. My dad was a man who had difficulty opening up with his family. The close father daughter relationship we didn't have. We had a relationship and we loved each other but the bits of nurturing that I wasn't able to get from him, came instead in the shape and form of wonderful grandparents and this beautiful lady, his sister.

  1. It's a Blessing when families live close enough that different relatives are there to supply the parts that perhaps our parents are not able to supply.
