  1. I was shocked and saddened when I saw Janet’s obituary by chance on the internet. My name is Frank Hynd and I live in the Cayman Islands.

    I was a room mate of Janet around 1982 when she first arrived in Miami. I left the U.S. shortly afterwards and stayed in touch with Janet on and off. I had not spoken to Janet for a number of years although she was in my thoughts. Her obituary mentioned that she had a long illness and I now regret not having spoken to her sooner.

    Janet was a very nice person and I offer my deepest condolences to Janet’s family.
