"I adored Janice Ewalt! I was her National Sales Director in Mary Kay and she was such a blessing to everyone who knew her. I lost touch with her after I retired. Her phone had been disconnected and she didn't respond to e-mails so I never knew how to contact her. My condolences go out to the entire family. If anyone ever visits Branson, please give me a call."
