My heart goes out to all of you, on the loss of your father. I loved all you Motl's. To help refresh your memory, this is Judy, Kathleen and Karen's choir director at Marshall High School. many years ago. I just loved you girls. Please take care, and most importantly, keep your family close. Now that both parents are gone, it's all the more important that you all stay connected. Much love, Judy
