    Dearest Sean and Jodi,
    Having endured the loss of both my parents I understand and empathize with all the emotions being dealt with at this time. Barb was a loving soul who was cherished by many. She is now without pain and smiling down upon you both. The strength you both possess to continually overcome obstacles in your lives is a true testament to your bond, commitment and love for one another. One day all the memories will be happy ones that do much else but bring a smile to your faces and happy tears.

    Love to you both,
    Catherine

    Words can’t comfort your loss at this time but your Mom was a fun, loving lady. I was so looking forward to seeing her and was shocked when Wendy (my sister) notified me of her passing. Our thoughts are with you both at this time. I would love to hear from you later.

    Love Carole, Barry and Wendy
