Guestbook

  1. Hazel has lost a .sister.(Janet’s term) and Dick has lost a favorite cousin. Fortunately, we have been in closer contact with Janet and Karl during the past 20 years. They would stop and see us on their annual car-train trip to Florida, we vacationed with them, stopped to see them when we visited in New England, and had monthly phone calls during the last few years, Dick’s last call with Janet was 3 or 4 weeks prior to her passing. What’s interesting is that during the more frequent calls after Karl’s death Janet was (expectedly) sad and depressed, although she was still playing bridge; but on Dick’s last call, Janet seemed more upbeat, although less talkative. Dick hung up with the feeling that she was doing better, not realizing that he was hearing her in a declining state. Dick’s oldest memory of Janet was when he was a sub-teen at a family get-together at his house on Marvelwood Drive. He shyly told Janet that it looked like she was gaining weight. Either Janet or someone else explained that she was carrying a baby (David, we suspect). We are saddened by Janet’s death, and the loss of a .sister. and cousin, but comforted that her passing was peaceful, and that she lived a full and gracious life. We will miss her. We have made a contribution to Doctors W/O Borders in Janet’s name.
