So sorry to hear of the passing of Barb. Your family has had more than their share of grief this year.  I worked with both Barb and Bob at The Green Camp Elevator many years ago. They were fine people and were so proud of their family. Their loss certainly leaves a large void in your lives.

I am so very sorry for your loss.  Words just do not do justice for what you are going through. I knew Bob and Barb from my Green Camp days.
