Remarkable. Yes, I think I can deduce/guess what happened. Someone did a quick Google or Bing search for "Janis Hansen", and that image is what appears on that first page of web search results.
50 years and a couple of months after meeting her, taking my avatar photo (with Lani) , and about a week after my mother's passing .... rest in peace.....
I am fortunate to have been married to Janis for 48 years. She was the most remarkable, intelligent, talented, dynamic and compassionate person I have ever known. Knowing, loving and living with Janis was the greatest gift in my life. I am trying to deal with losing her, and it is the hardest trial of my life.
I am so glad that you found the Bible stories useful. I don't remember the email exchange, but thanks for the comment.Janis and her husband Richard both were absolutely wonderful to me via a long set of email exchanges many years ago. I helped Janis reconnect with Jose Soares, though I have absolutely no clear recollection of how I did that, and Janis and Richard mailed me a complete set of their Bible Stories set that I donated to the church I was Music Directing for at the time. She was so touched by the fact that some of us knew she was the voice on Look of Love.
I have the picture you have posted, but if you have more, I would love to have copies... I am Janis' husband of 48 years.More sad news, 50 years and a couple of months after meeting her, taking my avatar photo (with Lani) , and about a week after my mother's passing .... rest in peace.....
I would be grateful for any pictures of Janis you have from that day.I offer my heartfelt condolences about your mother's passing.
I had downloaded the highest-resolution available scans of those two photos that you had taken at the Michigan State Fair 50 years ago, and those pics are just wonderful. In fact, those photos have newly-added significance, now that Janis has left this world.
I can imagine, if I was in your position (on that day you took those photos) -- as a 17-year-old boy, with those two lovely ladies in front of me, I don't know if I could have held the camera steady enough -- my hand would have been shaking, at least a bit. (Of course, I would have tried to suppress or hide that fact from them, as best as I could have.) : )
Thanks for the confirmation as well as clarification Richard and Welcome to the Forum and May I Extend my condolences Janis was Truly a One of a Kind Talent she is very much missed.If you are referring to the picture in the L.A. Times obituary, it is indeed Janis. I am her husband and wrote and placed the obit.
Wow, it's incredible that we have Janis's widower, himself, on this thread. I'm so glad you joined us, Mr. Klinger.I would be grateful for any pictures of Janis you have from that day.
Hi, Richard, wonderful to see you here, even if the circumstances are sad. I'm talking about the pic in this article from the OP, not the obit: Passings: Janis Hansen of Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 (1942 - 2017) - VVN MusicI think I have already responded that the picture in the obit is really Janis.
