I saw on facebook when Barbara's daughter posted about her grandmother's passing and it broke my heart. The loss was bad enough, but not being able to be with her has to be so hard.

Hi Kathy:

Thank you for sharing this...I was going to post something but Sally beat me...and was more eloquent than I might have been.  I sent Barbara a private message as soon as I heard (the day her Mom passed). I know these past several years have been very difficult, and the stay-at-home order has made it all even more challenging!
