Terry and Pam, I just heard about the loss in your family. Please know that my prayers are with you and your family and know that friends and family are there to lean on. Please know that, and let them help. It is so easy to to say no thanks when when you wish that you'd said yes. My phone is still in the book.

Loved growing up with Barb as my close cousin, watching her family grow and even becoming her babysitter. Didn't care for that silly monkey you had, but loved when you and Bob came home and played the guitar after a night out on the town. My open house was one of my best memories of our laughter together. I miss you in my heart, but I know my mom and dad will be there with you for always and forever, Until we see one another in heaven take care and know that you are loved here on earth and will be missed. Love you Barbie... RIP Jamie Peterson (Wilbur)
