Madeline, I am not good at words at a time like this but I am thinking of you especially. Sorry, I will not attend any of the services but I know you have loved Barbara in many ways and given a beautiful memory of her during her life time.
As time goes on, we all will leave.

I just want to say how sorry I am for the loss of your dear sister and my cousin. She was a special person and I am glad that I was able to see her last year at your anniversary celebration. She looked like she was happy to be there for you and Tom's special day. I know you will miss her very much as you did so much for her. May she rest in peace. My sincere condolences go out to you and your family.
