Mrs. Brady was a guardian angel who spent time on this earth. She opened her heart to all and provided love and support to those who needed it. I was a recipient of such support in my early years as a lost teenager. The Brady house was a haven for me and she and Doc welcomed me with open arms and without judgment. Her love for her family - and theirs for her - was remarkable to witness. May she and Doc be celebrating their reunion in eternal happiness. XO
