I have such a lump in my throat. Be at peace Barb. Todd and family, we grieve with you, she was a lovely lady in every sense of the word.

Rest in Peace, Barb. It's always tremendously sad to lose one of our own. I valued her input immensely.

Todd, James (Maidrite) and I both lost our mothers at Christmas time. We have learned not to hate Christmas, but to cherish it even more as we remember how special our moms made Christmas every year. This will be a very difficult Christmas for your family, but I pray that future Christmases bring back cherished memories of your mom. I will continue to pray for you and your family as you go through this difficult time.

Barbara

So true, Barbara. My father died early Christmas morning 4 years ago and we just didn't have Christmas until a week later that year because I couldn't face it. But with a lot of effort, we were able to celebrate Christmas the next year by making a special part of the day just to talk about him and share memories of him. Thankfully, Fisher was only 3 then and helped us to find the joy in the season.

If you need a place to talk about your mom or just a safe place to "let go", Todd, there are a lot of ready ears and open hearts here for you.

I'm so sorry to hear of Barb's death. She was always sweet and positive and seemed like a fun-loving person. My condolences to her family.
