Uncle Ted, Stuart, Scott and Kellie,
There will always be fond memories in my heart of spending summers in Lansboro with your family. Your mom was such a special, loving, sweet woman. I am so sorry for your loss. It was so nice to spend time with you last year at my dads services. Please keep in touch.
Love, Cathy

My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family. I remember Janet as always smiling and happy with life. Every time I visit Nubble Light I remember the fun times we enjoyed with Janet and your family staying at the Cabana Colony. I fondly remember sharing the holidays in CT and still have Janet’s recipe she shared for her salad with the cauliflower and bacon dressing! Rest in peace Janet.

With Love,

Our hearts go out to everyone in the Gardner Family at this difficult time. Janet was a wonderful, kind and caring person with a good sense of humor. John and I both have fond memories of sharing the holidays with Janet and your family in CT. I also have nice memories of spending time with Janet when I was a child visiting your family in Lanesborough. While we are saddened by your loss, we are happy that Janet is at peace.

With much love,
John, Lisa, Andrew, Kyle & Amanda
