Oh, dear Barbara, I’m so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing not long after Teri’s. My deepest sympathy to you, your husband, children, and grandchildren. May the peace of Christ and your cherished memories of your mom, mother-in-law, grandmother, and great-grandma help you through this time of sorrow.

Carolyn (Mrs. Thatcher, as I still call her) was a wonderful, nice, friendly neighbor! I have enjoyable memories of the times that my sister, Robin, and I would walk down to your house to visit you, or we’d just pop in on our way to Tina’s, and your mom was always so welcoming. Teri was as well. Both had big, beautiful smiles and a good sense of humor. Barb, you were just as welcoming, fun, and kind. You are in my prayers! Carolyn and Otto raised two wonderful daughters!

I recall many visits with my dad, Robert Alexander, Jr, when Carolyn and her family (plus another family) resided in the family home in St. Joe. Teri’s death (recently) reunited me with her daughter, Barbara, and another friend of the family, Sam Crow, whose mother was Elizabeth Crow. My prayers and condolences go out to Barbara once again in her loss. May God and Jesus grant you strength to endure it, and move forward. I am available when you need me.
