Dearest sweet Mr Shaw....first and adore you. You have always been a shining example of what it is to be a good and kind human being. I cannot fathom that you have ever known a stranger because you are always so quick to share the light and love that God put into you when he brought you into the world. Robert n I were heartbroken to hear the news of Ms Barbara's passing. We take comfort in knowing that she was loved and adored and doted on by you.....which is all any human on the planet could ever want. Thank you for being such a good example of what it is to be a good husband, and human being. I know Ms Barbara was grateful for how faithfully you took her to all her treatments and supported her through all those times when she needed the strength of another. Pray that God will somehow give you and your family a supernatural peace...and that you will be reminded that the one who made everything that was so special about your wife when he created her has now welcomed her home with an overwhelming love that we can't even begin to fathom. Sending love to you and the doggies..I know they miss her too. Bless you Mr. Shaw!!!!!! Love Robert n Pat
