Dear McGinnis Kids,
Jack was one on the last of my &Fowler extended family&. I remember your first house and then moving to the second house. Mary Ann was another &mother& to me. Jack was a wonderful inspiration when I separated from my husband, he told me about how to get on email to meet new people:) and hence Kathryn. I didn&t get the usual Christmas message last year and was a little concerned. Marti met him and Kathryn at another event. He was a great stable man that I cherished as much as your mom.
Kathryn, I glad you found each other at this time in life. Remember I am here - Jack and Mary Ann visited our house on a trip to SF long ago. Do not lose touch!
Love to you all from me and Scott, Janet and Marti,
Judy (juliethenderson@sbcglobal.net)

Dearest Kathleen and Family,

We were saddened by the news of your fathers struggle with cancer and his death. Fathers are so important, we were both lucky in that ours stayed in our lives with love and devotion. From the perspective of a friend and of a high school girl (when I knew your father) he was kind, had a sense of humor and was a gentleman. What more could you ask. We are sorry for your loss.

Sincerely,
Bridget and Family
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
