So, so many memories of June and her family, truly encompassed my growing up years. It would be impossible to name them all but easy to admit she made an enormous impact on me and was a true inspiration. There are few people in life who made an impression like June did on every single person in my family. I will remember her kindness, generosity and commitment to putting family and friends first. The memories of June will truly live on forever. Much love and peace to Hugh, Alexis, Hudge and their families. xx Meg

There are so many wonderful memories. June was a flower girl in my parents wedding. June and Hugh were an Aunt and Uncle to us, myself and 3 siblings. Not by blood but by our families spending and making memories throughout the years.
As a little girl I remember her parents visiting us in June and Hughs place in Cape Cod. Lobster dinners were all of our favorite! My sister and I worked one summer in June's law firm, we lived in Georgetown but were invited EVERY night to their house for chicken on the grill. We loved our time there and watching Alexis and Hudge grow up. My brother and his wife had their engagement party at their beautiful home on the Potomac. My Father (since passed) spent a couple of weeks every May at their cozy home at the Cape. My heart hurts for her family. She was a wonderful, gracious, caring and kind person. May she rest in peace and know that she was loved and admired by so many. xoxoxoxo
