I have been trying to send my condolences to the Quinn family all week at the Legacy website. without success. When my wife Mary Ann and I heard about Carole's passing earlier this week, we were beyond sad. We have been near tears since then. Joe and Carole have been our dear friends for more than 20 years. Joe and I have had a couple of cases together in PA. Those were always an opportunity to spend at least one night with them having dinner together. If there is one word to best describe Carole, it is her elegance. We will be going to Mass this Sunday and we will pray to Carole and ask her to watch over us…
