Janet was my first cousin and best friend when I was a kid. She was a little bit older than me, but what seemed like light years when I was little. I looked up to her, and could not imagine how she could dance around to rock and roll while wearing her navy blue bikini. Later in the day we would hang out by the pool after she ordered up burgers and fries at the local country club where her parents were members. It was always a thrill to visit Indiana and get to see Janet. In my family we all got spread out and moved around a bit but Janet was always there in Indiana. When I got divorced, and felt so bad, I happened to have a field project where I was working near Indianapolis, and I gave her a call out of the blue. Of course I wound up coming right over and we had a ball laughing and joking about the past, about the present, and about things not so good maybe, but, getting better. I don't know what we will do without her.
