So sad to lose my connection to my deceased husband's family. My sister-in-law Barbara and I would always speak by telephone on our birthdays. She inquired of my children and would tell me about her's. So glad I made the trip to Martinsville a couple of years ago to see her, but regret not going more often. My sympathy, love, and prayers to her family.
