Bob, my life was enriched when you reached out to me several years ago and I love that we reconnected. It was so special when Barbara also reached out to me on Facebook. I feel like she and I became instant friends and shared so much of our day-to-day lives. I enjoyed so much being in NOLA recently and the hospitality that you and Barbara showed Ginger and me. I cherish that we were able to spend some time with Barbara and she so lovingly remembered by birthday. From the short time we spent with Barbara, I knew she was always thinking of others and making them feel welcome. Now, everyone is thinking of her and God is welcoming her into eternal life. I will be there on Tuesday with love to say my final goodbye. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Bob.
