Having recently seen Barbara very vital and happy in her new home, it is unexpected and shocking and to learn of her passing. Today we will visit the Cologne Cathedral where we will light a candle in her memory and for Skip and all of the their family. Our sincere sympathy to all of you. A lice and Newt Ruffing
