Loved you Barbara , Mom. Enjoyed staying overnight with you then getting up in the morning after shopping and mohegan the day before and I would say, you want to take a ride again and she would give me this big smile and say , let me get my things and I will be ready. She loved it and was always so much fun. Will miss you. I send my condolences to everyone especially to my best friend Judy. You and Cliff opened your home to her and you were always there for her. It meant a lot to her.
Love you.
