David and Family,
It is with great sadness that I write to express our condolences and sympathy for your loss of Barbara. I’m sure that at the moment you can’t imagine life without her, but only over time it will become simpler, although not easier, to bear. Once again, I’m so sad for your loss.

I would like to express sympathy to my brother-in-law, Richard George, his sisters, Concetta and Ann, and my niece, Meredith on the passing of Barb, their sister and aunt. They have had to grieve many losses and I hope they find comfort in knowing their friends and family support them and pray for them in their grief. God bless and keep all of you.
