To Barbara's Family,

So sorry for your loss.
We were childhood friends and classmates.
Luckily we had a few visits in the last couple of years.
She seemed to face her health problems with courage and faith.

With sympathy,

Dear Ed, I was a long time friend of your sister and her husband Charlie in Queens, NY. I visited your parents years ago with Barbara and had such a great time. I was so sorry to learn of Barb's death. She was a dear friend. We also worked for NYS together. I tried contacting her through your daughter and reached her back in 2000 for only one letter from her. I recently tried to contact her again and that's how I learned of her passing. I am so sorry for your loss. I will miss her gentle spirit and kindness. Sincerely, Janet
