D.O, Earl and Coach, my condolences on the passing of your mother and wife. I saw the notice over the weekend and wish I had known sooner. I would have liked to have paid respects in person. Janet was one of a kind. LOVED playing football in front of her, I could always hear her words of encouragement from the sidelines, man that woman could yell. I felt bad for the refs, if they missed a call. I looked forward to those hugs of hers when we came off the field, they were genuine and real. That walk to the parking lot was always filled with constructive criticism because she was a student of the game of football, she knew what she was talking about and for sure she was one of B & C's Braves biggest fans. She treated all of us like we were all her sons. Thank you for sharing her with everyone!

How I'll miss you! Years together as coworkers laughing about
day to day happenings! Outside of work you were my dancing buddy, our out to dinner and try new places buddy, my New Years Eve buddy, my Seastreak ferry buddy and years of being my Blue Claws buddy. I'll always remember our long phone conversations sharing our family, children and grandchildren stories. Politics, friends and solving the world's problems became part of our conversations. I'll miss the laughter and joy that was part of our friendship and will cherish all the happy memories of you.

My Dear Friend,
I will always have you in my heart. I am so sad I couldn't be there for you, and can't be there to say good by, but I know you are at piece now.
We have been best friends since Grammar School at HW Mountz then through Manasquan High School. I will never forget all the good times we had.
I remember your Birthday Parties at your house in Sea Girt when we were kids, its like it was yesterday.
The fun we had running the best High School Reunion ever.
70 Years of amazing memories. I am so glad we were able to get together whenever I got back to Manasquan over the last 10 yrs.
just talking sharing what life had throne us and memories.
I will miss you.
Toni
