  1. I am very sorry for your loss of Janet. We lived a few doors away in the Co-op for 32 years. I have fond memories of her walking Mr Boo ….and bragging about Her YANKEES ! Things won’t be the same without her.

  2. Janet was a wonderful neighbor. We visited her a week before she died and she was smiling and enjoying our company. She will be missed by all of us. We watch out for each other and after all these years we are all family. Go Yankees!

  3. We are so sorry for your loss of Janet. We lived across the street from her for 20+ years. We knew Pete very well before he got sick and we have fond memories of both of them. But the one thing that brought about our closeness was our Westie Dogs! I had Woody and Katie. They had Jamie & MacGregor. These dogs loved to play together. Pete used to bring them over alot. Then when he got sick I used to help Janet with them from time to time… Janet and our family have been exchanging Christmas cards for years. We would talk from time to time. She was always very interested in my son and his antics!! She was a very nice person and a good neighbor she loved her garden too… We will miss her.. She is in our prayers.. God Bless her always.. Sincerely Deb, Jim & Chris Gniadek
