Post a Condolence

Dear Brenda, Linda and Family of Barb Bell: I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a wonderful, dedicated and loyal volunteer for Sgt. P’s Lapghans For Veterans. In the 3 years, she made 65 lapghans, not to mention scarves and a few other items. She always went out of her way to help. She was a great friend of mine and I will miss our phone calls, and seeing her at our lapghan group social gatherings. She will be truly missed. Prayers for you and your families.
