My thoughts and prayers for you all. I worked with Bobby at Abbot and Staples In Manchester. He’s a wonderful man. Then I met Barbara. She was so wonderful and nice. She wanted me to see her doves they had. They were beautiful and there singing so peaceful. Lynn my heart breaks for you and your sisters. I pray that Barbara is at peace and you all find peace. I would like to think she is flying high with her doves. Love 💕 to all. Terri
