I’m so sorry to hear about Janet. She was a wonderful, caring and funny person. I met her when she and Mike lived in Foster, RI. We rode horses together. She came to countless horse shows to support, cheer and groom. I’m so sorry we never connected again when she returned from Florida. My thoughts and prayers are with Brandi-lyn, Morgan and the Delfino Family.
