Re: [MOL] From Chris



A note about Barb's family..
Since she passed away May 18, her husband can not stop crying.. he realizes
now that she was much sicker than he thought..hindsight is always 20/20.
Unfortunately her care during the past two months was less than adequate..
she did not have any emotional support, except from me - her sister - and
apparently that was not enough.  I feel that she decided to go to a better
place sooner than she would have otherwise.  Love, Gwen
