My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family, in particular my friend Karen Rand, and Doug, and her children and grandchildren. It is so difficult to lose a Mom, as they are the glue that hold families together. I hope you all will find peace in the loving memories that she gave you throughout the years.
God bless you, Mary Quinlan

Janet, Vickie and Karen,

So very sorry to see Judy's passing. She was such a kind, warm and loving person. So many good memories of you, Janet, and I playing ball and learning from Freddy. He was firm and Judy softened it. They were a well balanced team, as I'm sure they are today in heaven.
The fast paced life we all lead sometimes put time and distance in our lives. But true friends are only a phone call away and Janet, I'm here. So please let me know if you need anything or just want to talk. Love, hugs and prayers to you all.
