I am so sorry for your loss of both of your parents just two days apart. Though I never met your parents, I got to believe they were extraordinary people because they had an extraordinary son!

Best to you,


OH how Sad, but I'm sure this is how they wanted it  to be, together always. I can remember going down to the Barnes house and seeing the large eating table in the kitchen.(I had never seen such a big table and thinking how wonderful this must be to have all of these play mates, also going out in the dark to pick up night crawlers with Sis and Barney. I think my Mom was they to baby sit while your Mom brought home a new baby sister or brother. I've seen SiS down to Wegmans and she told me how bad her husband was. Oh it's so hard. We are thinking of all of you.

Our Love , Barbara annd Roger
