I’m sorry for your loss. I was Dalton’s 2nd grade teacher. There was never any doubt Mrs. Barbara loved her boys. I will be praying for your family.

I am in a blur , I've so many memories of bobs. Everything from black Friday shopping to her calling just to tell me how the day went , if it was first words of the boys or bouncing off some steam so she could look at things more. Calmly. I loved when we would go camping , even. Sometimes embarrassing her when we went to appts. My favorite memory would be when we all went camping at heber when they were all four there. With my family and alley. Also was with us. The kids busy treasure hunting, bobs being the natural mother she was, always doting on all them without batting an eye. David driving boat and taking cliff along and me and bobs just relaxing and being so happy. . We were whole then. Without a clue where our futures would take us. But laughing and knowing we would always have family, love and that's what mattered the most. But I have got to do this and she would get a chuckle too..only David and cliff with bobs and me would know why...i remember the porcelain tunnel and I'm still laughing bobs! I'll miss you bobs. I love you!
