Mom, I still can't believe you are gone, my heart is forever broken. I miss you so much that I get physically sick but I know you would want me to go on and take care of the boys and Annie. I hear you say everyday "where there is a WILL, there is a WAY". I love you mumma.

I was blessed to work with Barb for years and to become her friend. She never let a day pass without spreading love and care for others. She was truly amazing. I know how much you will all miss her. I was so excited for her when she got Annie and she would proudly bring her in to work. What has become of Annie now? I am looking to adopt a dog, if she is in need of a home. My deepest sympathies.
