  • Terry, Roger, Robert, and Paul,  Janet Boylan Souder and I were sad to hear of your Mother's passing.  Janet is so glad that we visited with her in person just a few months ago so Janet could catch up on Nan's life and her family.  Janet has very fond memories of Nan from back in her youth.  As you know, Janet and her brother John Boylan, and now I, have been working and documenting the Quarles Genealogy.  I have it committed to a computer genealogy database and am willing to share it with you?

    Know that your dear Mother is in a better place now and we shall all see her again on the other side.  Life is so short and so precarious that we while here on earth, should all hold dear those of our families, cousins and relationships that are near to us.

    God bless you and yours in this time of grief and loss.
