We are so sad reading this. Our prayers of peace and comfort go out to each of you. Barb was such a sweet lady, always enjoyed talking with her. She had such a big heart for her family and talked of them with such pride. Hugs to you Richard, Jeff, Leanna, and family.

The two of you were always a wonderful couple and when I got back to STA I enjoyed seeing you both at Immanuel Lutheran which was the church home for all of us... Richard, i know the last few years have been difficult but somehow God provides for all of us... Blessing to you and your family, Jerry
