I often see our police departments and fire departments praised for their selfless giving of time and for their courageous endeavors. However, how many times have you read about the caring and honest humanity of our Bureau County Coroner Janice Wamhoff? I have had the unfortunate necessity of meetings with Janice twice in the last 15 months. We lost my nephew, Chad Sarver, in May of 2012 to a heart attack at 36, and lost my nephew, Derrick Tate, on Sept. 19, 2013, in a tragic motorcycle accident at the age of 39. Both of these boys were at the prime of their lives, and both lives were cut way too short.
