  4. Dear Barb, Jeff and family,
    We were sad to read of your mother’s passing. She was a beautiful lady. I think of her sweetness and peacefulness when I remember her. Maybe it came from long years of practice watching all those games you played in! It is hard to realize that you are at the top of the family tree, but it is true because you have gotten to do and enjoy so much. Your Mom and Dad were a big influence in your lives and they live on in you. So we send you hugs for your sadness and loss and smiles for all the good memories we shared. My email address is “” if you want to tell me more about where you are and what has gone on in the past “few” years.
    Linda and Dave
