Condolence & Memory Journal

I met Ms. Quinn several years ago when she brought her little dog "Buddy Love" to our vet clinic. We absolutely adored her, and him. The Foothills Family sends our thoughts and prayers.

She was a great nurse and never minded helping her fellow worker or explaining a procedure. She was well liked, and I will always remember Fran. Love you.
