Garry, We had the immense pleasure to see Janet on the pool deck bright and early every morning. She always greeted us with the biggest smile, and loved telling us how she was spoiled by her children during family celebrations. Much love to you and your family from the Erin Meadows Lifeguards (Taylor, Victoria, Amanda, Emily, Tori and Rebecca)
