Radford Family. I am so sorry for the loss of an amazing woman. I was saddened to hear of her passing but I know I will see her again. She showed me so much when I worked with her at JFS. She also was willing to listen and give great advice. She was a great supervisor and team member. My condolences to all your family, I know an amazing person went to heaven. God Bless.
