It was several years ago that Jonathan pointed out Janet to me at Uxbridge. I introduced Janet to Jonathan, and she gave Jonathan a bar of chocolate, which was nice. Each time we met at cricket we always had a good chat, and several years later when she sponsored Sam Robson, she gave Jonathan Robbo's cricket shirt.

A few years ago, she sadly had a stroke which prevented her from attending matches, although if she could get a carer to take her, she would perhaps come to Lord's once a season. When I found out that she was in a care home, I frequently paid her visits. When I found out her favourite players were Fred Titmus and Peter Parfitt, I gave her signed photos which she was delighted to receive, plus I brought her latest cricket magazines to read.

Although she was no longer able to visit Lord's, she still continued membership of The Middle, which showed she still followed their fortunes.

It was only a couple of weeks ago I visited Janet's care home, but was told she was in hospital. I left the programme from England v India at Lord's for her to read when she came out. I am not sure if she did return to the care home before she died, but she was always delighted whenever I came to her, and I will miss talking to her about The Middle.

Janet, it was a pleasure knowing you.

Rest in peace.
