Condolence from Elsie Stoddard on July 1st, 2013 5:52 am

Dear Bill and Family,
I was saddened to read of Janet’s passing this morning and so hasten to express my deepest sympathy to you and your dear family. Although I haven’t seen Janet since her mother was in Melville Hts., Janet has often been in my thoughts, especially when I remember the happy shared experiences growing up on Poplar Street. Janet was a wonderful “big sister” to me and spiritual heart of the old Poplar St. Gang. As the oldest child in our small community, she planned and directed all of our rainy day concerts. The Stoddards, Carters, Doreys, and Parkhills will never forget your Janet, our very good friend.
Peace and prayers,
Elsie Stoddard
