Judy and Family, I am so sorry for your loss of Danny, may God be with all of you during this difficult time and cherish all of your wonderful memories. Judy it has been years since I last saw you when we worked together at Stuart McGuire in Customer Service. I still remember the way that when we were eating you always broke up your potato chips, it is odd how something so small sticks in our mind. I also enjoyed the video of all of the pictures it brings back such good memories for me of years passed. Over the years I have stayed in touch with Marie Fizer, Janet Duncan and others during my time at Stuart McGuire/HSN. God Bless all of you in the coming days.
