We shared so many wonderful Shrine Ladies Luncheons with you, Barbara, and your mom. She was always a delightful lady, fun to be around. Know it brings you much comfort to know you cared for her and enjoyed her for those many years. Will be unable to attend her service. Please know you are in my prayers for comfort and strength at this very difficult time. Thanks for calling me.
