I know that losing Barb has been really hard on everyone, and that it wasn't expected so soon. I just want you all to know that she and all of you have been included in many prayers, and wishes for comfort during such a rocky time. I'm incredibly grateful for Barb's presence, kindness and love for Taylor, and now little Tessa, too. Their lives have been blessed by her, and so many of you, too. Our sympathies and prayers continue for you.
