Dear John, Judy and Jill and families,
We send our heartfelt sympathy as we fondly give thanks for your mother's active life. We treasure the times we were with your mother and dad on baseball trips or golf outings. Times together in Arizona bring special fun memories. It was also a pleasure to have you as students at QHS and later friendships.
May God's Blessings and happy memories of a special person comfort you as you continue her legacy.
