    It is with a heart heavy with sadness that I write this to you. Barb is one of the sweetest persons I knew. I cherish the years that I could call her mother-in-law. God's blessing on you! May he watch over you until the day when you will be reunited!

    Dear Mr. Tucker and Family, My most deepest sympathy goes out to you on the loss of your beloved Mother. I am truly sorry. My heart goes out to you and you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know the pain and sorrow that you feel because I lost my beautiful Mother too. Nobody could ever take the place of a Mother or ever love you like she did. It is the most devastating loss ever. I lost my precious Mother 16 years ago and I am still suffering and in a lot of pain. My heart is so broken and can never be mended. We were inseparable. I cry for her all the time. May God comfort you and give you strength in this time of sorrow and bring peace to your heart. God bless you.
