Janet’s Marks Died February 11, 2013 at about 7pm in Cambridge Massachusetts:

The timing was pure Janet.  The worst blizzard in this century, everything silent and under snow.  She went in peace, days after a fall and a stroke.  She was buried Sunday February 17 at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Birch Gardens.  As she asked, she was buried in a plain pine box under a tree and near a pool of water.  If you wish to visit her, there is a bench.RIP_Janet

Janet lived to be 94, and she was working on her poems right up to the end.  If you knew her, or met her in her poems, you will miss her.

    My dear mother,
    What great work you’ve done!
    How proud I am of your terrific accomplishments, and how grateful I am to you for
    passing a little bit of your talents down through the gene pool to me. You could
    give no better gift to your offspring!
    From your loving son,

    Dear Janet.
    We met Lisa in Paris in 1992 and have heard som much about you. I remember that you visited her there, but unfortunatelly we didn´t meet you. Very nice then to be able to meet you by your poems. We are at Gran Canaria now but will order your book as soon as we come back home to Sweden. It´s a great pity that we can´t come and listen to you the 20th – but it´s so far away.

    Good Luck! And send our love to Lisa.

    Best regards Barbro and Mats Hemlin from Gothenburg, Sweden

    My husband and I were at the Vermont Conference when you were there but we were in different classes. We are poets too. Congratulation on your book & we really liked reading some of your sample poems. We enjoyed the wit, the rigor and the evocation of childhood. Much success with the book.

    Dear Mom, Your life at 93 is enviable to most. That’s my kick-ass Mom! All my friends are enjoying my copy of your book (although one of them bought her own!) You are truly an inspiration. My life has been enriched by your commitment to haute culture, including most notably, poetry and music.
    Love, Dianne
