Condolence & Memory Journal

Barb, I am so very sorry to hear this. I have missed seeing you at the library for quite a while. I am also sorry this note is so late coming to you and that I couldn't be at the service. I will be sending hugs and prayers to you.

Barb, you and Tony are great role models for what marriages should look like while facing life's challenges. You have succeeded with courage, strength and love. I always looked for Tony's "letter to the editor" in the JG. I admired him for taking a stand. I will miss reading his thoughts. May you know God's presence and peace in the day's ahead. Love, Judy Church
