  • Dear Gord, we sit here stunned and numb to hear about Barb’s passing. We are so sorry Gord. Just two years ago we remember the fun we all had in Texas prior to heading home. Remembering Barb taking us in the area around Inverness hunting for pecans. She was such an easy person to become immediate friends with. Dear Gord, please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
