Spending time with all of you at the farm was such a blessing while I was doing my internship in DC. You were my east coast family! Barbara, you treated me like one of your kids and I’ll never forget that. I know that you’re now dancing with the love of your life. Sending love to Clem, Travis, Macie and Molli. Your mom loved you fiercely!!
