My beautiful granddaughter Lydia went to join her Mom and Grandpa Steve yesterday.
Some of you will remember her from meets she went to with us.

Oh Barb, so sad. Lydia was such a sweet kid. And she had her quirky little sense of humour. I just found pictures last week from when Lydia, you, Kelly Hall and I went to the aquarium on our trip to Cincinnati. Hang tight girl. Be strong. Hugs.

Jody and I send our sincere condolences, Barb. Jody was quite taken with your granddaughter while we were in Cincinnati back in 2015. I thought you'd like to see a happier memory....

May you find peace in your own time. You obviously have friends who care.....
