Always wanting to be different, Janice wasn't happy to dictate her final internment to a mere grave to rot or urn to sit and gather dust. She'd always been told she was a part of everyone's lives, so her will dictated her ashes were to be drunk with red wine. Of course her family had no such intention of doing this and her stingy life saw her ashes stuck in a public columbarium.
