There are no words that can adequately express my grief for the loss of such a beautiful, wonderful soul to this earth. Wendy, our love goes out to you and the family. I remember little Quincy, taking piano and violin lessons in my apartment 6 years ago. How lovely she was. There is no reason for this in the universe that you can ever wrap your head around. Keep your family near. Reach out to your friends. May you find your own peace. - Maria Daggett and family.
