    Barb, Chad and Eric,
    I am so sorry to hear about Borden’s death. I know his illness was extended and how hard you all worked for him to have some normal life. The last time I spoke to Borden was at the funeral home, and as always, he was his normal, goofy, irreverent self. I don’t remember a lot about that day, but I sure remember Borden. And it makes me laugh when I think of it. I know he will be missed. You all created a wonderful family together.
    Much Love,
    Sherry
