BERNNADETTE STANIS REMEMBERS HER FONDEST MEMORY OF JA'NET DUBOIS

If there's anything that BernNadette Stanis will remember of her good friend, it's her dedication and her positive outlook on everything. Aside from acknowledging the many memories they had on 'Good Times,' she said her fondest memory was when she found Ja'Net writing a song.

"There were many, but one was when she was writing a song, and I went to her and asked what she was doing, and she said 'I'm writing a song [...] for 'The Jeffersons."

True enough, DuBois ended up getting chosen, and her song "Movin' On Up" became the theme song of "The Jeffersons" which was a sitcom that aired from 1975 to 1985.

Ja'Net is remembered by fans as a talented actress and singer, but more than that, she is remembered as a good friend, a mentor, and a loving family member. The DuBois family has yet to release a statement on her sudden death, opting to mourn silently for now.

DuBois is now reunited with her son Raj in heaven, losing him to cancer when he was only 36-years-old. May they Rest In Peace.
