Default Sad News....

Condolences go out this evening to our friend Y2C (Steve) who lost his dear wife Barbara this morning to lung disease.
Y2C, you've always brought smiles to our faces with your posts and silly jokes. Tonight, I hope we can bring you some comfort in this time of sorrow.

I'm very sad to hear of this news, and especially around a holiday such as this first week in July. The anniversary will be tough each year.
Aside from that, it is tough at any time. We are all here to support you and our thoughts are with you.

Steve, please accept my sincere condolences. I remember you told me about Barbara when I talked with you in San Pedro at the pre-cruise cocktail party. I hope that you will get comfort from the people here as I did when Keith was so ill.

Steve, I was shocked to hear the news this evening. Please know that you and your daughter are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. I remember meeting both you and Barbara on the Summit back in 2002 and thinking what a great couple the two of you made. Peace be with you during this most difficult time.

Steve, Don and I are saddened to hear that Barb is gone. We think back with fond memories to sailing with the 2 of you on the Original Get Lei'd cruise.......such fun people. Barb faced her illness with such grace and determination and she was taken all too soon.

You and your family are in our thoughts.

Steve: I, too, am so sorry to hear of Barb's passing. It was a pleasure knowing her. Barb was the sweetest woman! I know she had been ill for a very long time, but she never complained. I know all the wonderful memories you two made together will help you through this very difficult time. Take care of yourself.
