And so this marks an end of the life of a wonderful person who I was proud to call Aunt Barb. I remember the Summer I spent in Brooklyn at their home . Donna I believe you were in B.C. @ that time . It is among one of my best memories . I remember all the visits we had …from the Little House on Amherst Street to the Big House on Great Hill ….. Camping @ Molega Lake…. and watching Aunt Barb Bowl . I also remember when Uncle Jim and Aunt Barb both worked and I would get dad to drop me off @ your house on his way to work , and we would play the game CLUE . I wish we could go back to those days for surly they were the best . I am so sorry .
Love you all very much
