Dear Sandy and family,

It was with much sadness that I heard of Barbara's passing today, much too late to attend the services. But please accept my deepest condolences. She was always so upbeat and positive in all our interactions when I worked for Sandy. I know that she is in the loving hands of God now. I send my prayers to her and to all her family who I know are feeling this great loss.
