    Janet was a friend in Pittsburgh. I sent her a 90th birthday card and just tried to call her. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. She was the light of her family. Janet and Rolfe, and Michael and I shared many occasions together. Janet lit up the room when she walked in. My condolences to the whole family.
