  2. Nathan,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of your great loss. Barb was an inspiration with all the work she had done on your patio and in the back yard to make it a real garden spot. I am glad I got to visit with you both when I was back in Pueblo in June. You and Barb were great friends and neighbors for the many years we lived across the street. Please take care and we will keep you in our prayers.
