Sorry to hear about Janette. I am in Florida and saw the obituary in the electronic version of the Free Press. I was in high school with Janette and have fond memories of her. I played golf with you at Ingersoll Golf Club, and you once played with one arm only when you broke your arm. I won't be back in time for the funeral, but wanted to say hello and send my regrets. Maybe we will meet up again before it is too late.

We regret that we won't be able to attend the service, as John and I are still in Florida . Our prayers and thoughts are with you and the boys.

I am so sorry to hear about Janette's passing. I taught with her at St. George's and we would usually go for a walk at lunch hour and share great stories and laughs. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.
