It will be three years since we lost you tomorrow. So much has happened since then, but not a day goes by that I do not think of you. I love you.

My deepest condolences to you all. So many memories of hanging out at your house when we were young. I always liked Barb and was so sorry to hear that she was very sick and of her passing. I ran in to her a couple of years ago and we had a great talk.

Dear Leaman: We are so sorry about your wife’s passing. Barb was a joy a few years ago when you sold refreshments at our Labor day Week-end a few years ago. She was so friendly and helpful and was a lovely lady. We know that you and your family share many happy memories of her and those memories will sustain you in the future. God Bless you and your entire family!

Absolutely heart broken about Barbie. Prayers go out to the family. Barbie and I had lots of good times together when we were much younger and in school. She will surely be miss lots. Love to Jean, Paula and Mony.
