Dearest Julie and Family - Today I thought of Barbara and felt I had to find her. I went through Facebook and saw her picture on your Timeline and feared the worst. We haven't talked in so many years, but I have always kept you and Barbara in my heart. If I had only known of her long fight with cancer. Yes, she was that strong, kick butt Barbara that I always knew when we were children. I remember the Summer of 1965 when I came to stay with your family after Daddy died. Remember the sunburns from Tybee? Barbara and I teased you unmercifully at times; but, it was because we loved you. I also remember the beautiful hand-smocked clothes she made for "her girls". The picture you have of her here is the beautiful Barbara I knew and loved and laughed with. I am so very sorry that I did not contact you sooner. You have my love, prayers and heartfelt sympathy.
Right now I am crying and remembering. I can only imagine the loss you feel. But, she is at peace now and with Joan and Bennie and Aunt Daisy. You take care of yourself, my little Cousin Julie who has grown into a beautiful woman. We have lost too many family and friends. Take care and remember I will always love you and remember the good times.
