Sandra and family, I am so sorry for your loss. It is hard to turn loose of your parents but you certainly have some beautiful memories as shown in the video. Bill and Barbara were such a bright spot when they came into the Senior Center; always a smile and kind word. Barbara will be missed and I know your heart is broken today. Just know she is with your Dad now and is without pain; what a blessing. Love to all of you and if there is anything I can do please call. Joan
