My mother, Constance Maxine (Walters) Quinn who died in 2016, was a beacon for loving kindness in the world of so many whose lives she touched. This website is dedicated to her memory and also to two of my brothers: Bruce Elliot Walters who died in 1969 serving his country in Vietnam and to Hubert Nathaniel (“Nat”) Walters who died in 2011 after serving as a police officer on Long Island, NY for over 20 years — and to all who ascribe to peace-loving leadership.
