Post a Condolence

Tamarah, I am a past classmate and friend from Shannon Grade School. I have had the happy occasion to run into your Mother a times over the years and she always made one feel as though time was the only separation between longtime friends. Please accept sincere condolences and prayers from this longtime friend.

I’m so grateful to have had Barb as a client and friend. She was a sweet & caring soul. She has two daughters who are a mirror reflection of her kind self. May they find comfort in their memories.

I am sorry, Berkley, for your loss. Although I never met Barb during that brief year we spent together 50 years ago, I am duly aware of how she must have fortified you and the family all of her life. Say “hey” to Debbie for me; I still reflect on that 6th Grade year, and all the special students in that class! Did I just dream this, or did Clay Parker serve as Savannah’s mayor? Go in peace, Larry
