Dear Carol, Sandy and Family, So very sorry to learn of Barbara’s passing. Barb and I first met about 70 yrs. ago – as neighbors on Rosedale, and later as classmates at VMA. We shared many good times together in our youth. I feel your pain, as I lost my sister, Jackie, almost 2 yrs. ago. Take comfort in knowing that she is at peace now and in the presence of Our Lord. My deepest sympathies to you all. Judy (Mileski) Tymchyn

So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. It’s been a long time since we were in touch, however, I wanted you to know I saw the notice and have been thinking of you and praying for you and your family.
