Barbara, you may not remember me, but we lived together at St. Athanasius many years ago. You were in my dreams last night, & I have been thinking of you all day. I googled your name and just learned of Bob’s passing. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayer at this time. I am so sorry for your loss. ❤️
