I am so very sorry to hear of your tragic loss. Janet was a wonderful person and I have memories of Florida when Hillary would eat grouper and fries and the spilled drinks by the pool served by the children. Also times at the cottage. And of course The Group of Seven when you and I planned on hijacking the train. If Gordon had only known. People tend to drift away but your family has always been in our thoughts. May she be comfortable where she is going and I am sure she will bring joy and happiness to others. Our thoughts are with you and the children.

I remember Janet and I singing for Des Tyrell in grade 7.
We always had a good laugh.
Sounds like Janet was as great as a adult as she was when we were kids.
You have my sympathy.
I remember your mom and dad's cottage next door to the Leonard's. Sincerely Marion
