It has been so difficult to walk in to work and not seeing you there. Most difficult & probably overwhelmingly sad, is not to hear your contagious laughter, your animated stories & your positive spirit. I miss you my sweet Barbarita, & I wish I could have hugged you one last time that Tuesday afternoon. Fly high & until we meet again.
