John and Lee Anne,
The boys of Grand Avenue send our sincerest sympathies to the Drost family. Barbara was a terrific neighbor and ray of sunshine. She welcomed us when we first moved into the neighborhood. We always loved talking with her and hearing about the garden and her walks to the store. She would often share the extras of the garden as a way to say hello or to thank us for the previous winter’s snow removal. She was quite a generous soul. She often talked of her siblings and how she looked forward to talking them via phone.
John and Lee Anne, you guys did great taking care of her especially in her recent years. It was a pleasure seeing you at the house and we enjoyed the talks and updates.
We hope you find peace with her loss in the days ahead and may the fond memories shared by family and friends bring you comfort. She will always hold a special place in our hearts and will be greatly missed .
Steven and Dean- Vernon, CT
