  1. Lynn and Beth, so sorry to read of your mom’s passing. We may not have kept in touch, but they were in my thoughts. Your parents were great people.

  2. Monica and I were so sorry to hear about the passing of our friend and long time next door neighbor Barbara. We always enjoyed our short but information filled conversations that we would have together in our respective driveways and exchanging whatever baked goods we would have for one another. She was a very sweet and kind person. I know John has been waiting a few years to see her again, and now they can be together, which I’m sure is making them very happy. Our condolences go out to her family and our extended next door neighbors. We will miss her. Monica and Rich

  3. So sorry to hear about your moms passing. We often talked over the fence when Barb and John were working their garden and they often baby sat my daughter Tessa for me when she was small. They were great neighbors. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  4. Paul and I send our prayers for Barbara and all the family

    John and Barbara are amazing, loving people and will be missed

    We were blessed to know them
