I was so sorry to hear that Barbara had passed away and regret that I am unable to attend her funeral. She was such a sweet lady. I have truly missed her being across the street from me the past year. Being with her family was a great joy to her. I am glad she was able to spend the time she had with all of you. Sincerely, Perry & Janet Williams
