Condolences for the family of “Janice Elizabeth Benjamin”

Condolence from Michael Citrini on November 19th, 2018 6:05 am

Dear Aaron, Talitha, and Family:

I send you my condolences and prayers over the the death of your Mom and sister, Janice. Janice was one of the most authentic and caring people I have ever met.

I remember Janice sharing an experience with our Spiritual Direction cohort about a difficult patient who had asked for her legs to be massaged. Janice recounted how – though the patient had been trying for both her and the hospital staff, she was led to envision the patient as Jesus and gave her a leg message with love and care.

That story made a profound impact on me and was just one of many ways that Janice’s presence and faith were true lamps of light in our world.

Peace and love to all of you,

Michael Citrini
Raleigh, NC
