I’m so very sorry to hear of Barbara’s passing. She was such a dear, sweet lady. I will always remember her love of traveling (and her love of sharing her trips with Joan!), and her beautiful stitching. She was so very talented, and so loving. Above all, she loved her family deeply, which showed through everything she did and said.
My heart and prayers are with all of you. I’m so very sorry for your loss.

Thanks for being the type of Grammie that would serve me a bowl of frosting because you knew it was my favorite part of the cake!
