Jorden Covert - January 22, 2022

It’s taken some time for me to write this because I’m still processing the loss. Barb, you were a light in the darkness. You brought a man I loved and respected so much joy. Words can’t express the value you added to my grandfathers life. The side smile and giggle he showed when you were mentioned was both comforting and a relief. I know the last years of his life weren’t easy and the life you had planned to live together wasn’t what either of you expected. But you never wavered, your dedication to him was what we all hope to find in the times when we need someone in our most vulnerable time. I will never forget what you did for him and our family. My condolences to your children, grandchildren, family and friends. I’m comforted in knowing you’re in a place where music is playing, the dance floor is open and laughter rings out over a big bonfire! With love, Jorden.
