R Rick Beale on Sep 9, 2010

I am very sorry for your loss. Mandy touched many lives in VA via her efforts with my clients and was a joy to work with. She was truly a great success as the following quote states:

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

My thoughts are with all who knew her,

Rick
