Erin, We met when your mom married my brother. You're family in a sense. I found you again in Winchendon when we were neighbors, and you were a new mom with just your first son. You survived parenting and may I say YOU DID AN AMAZING JOB. Everyone is proud of you and will be seeing your children do make you proud as they begin their grown life journey. Fly high till we meet again.

My condolences to the Barus family, I will always remember her when we worked at Gardner High cafeteria. Even though she was moving like a whirlwind. She always stopped for a split second to make you laugh, so honor her and cherish her in ways that will make you laugh, because I'm sure in my heart that is how she would want it. Many heart felt prayers to you.
