You are gone, but thank you for all the sweet things you left behind. In my head and in my heart. The world changes from year to year, our lives from day to day, but the love and memory of you, shall never pass away. I will dearly miss you and our phone calls that had plenty of giggles and brightened both our days. May you be at peace Barbara, you were genuinely a beautiful soul inside and out and I will miss you xxx

Lots of love,

George Currivan
