I’m blessed to have had and known my wonderful, caring, loving cousin Barbara. I enjoyed having a pen pal through the many cards for every occasion that she sent to my mother and then to me. I thank her for all of the hugs and smiles each time I saw her.
I know her family will miss her dearly.
Peace to Donna and all of you.
