Dear Reid and Family,
Our deepest condolences to you, Reid, on the loss of your wife, Barb, and to Julie (and Pete) and Jill on the loss of your mother.
I always enjoyed talking with Barb, and she always kindly kept us in her thoughts by sending Christmas cards to us every year. We share a love of cats, and I will be making a donation in Barb's name to TAPS. Barb was admiringly funny and down to Earth and she will be sorely missed. I know Reid will pamper and spoil Blaze just like Barb would want.
Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers,
Melissa, Les, Julian, and Livia Cohen
