Barbara was my cousin - my father and her mother were siblings. When my parents married in 1940, Barbara was their lovely and charming flower girl. I have had this photo hanging in my home for decades.

I am so sorry for your lose. I knew your parents from Christ the King when we were in choir together. We enjoyed each others company at many a gathering in my home. They were truly smitten with each other and I will never forget their 50th Anniversary Mass - it truly was a lovely sight to be present as they renewed their vows. I was blest to have them as friends. God Bless them.
