While we have been publishing obituaries on WSB for a while, this is a first – a request to publish a tribute on the anniversary of someone’s passing. It is also shared as a message of gratitude to the community, so here’s what Barb Fuda‘s widower Bob and his family want to say:
In Memory of Barb Fuda
Today marks the one-year Anniversary of the passing of my wife Barb. It’s hard to believe she has been gone a whole year. She is truly missed by all who knew her and loved her so much, but we all know she is in a better place knowing all the pain she was in during her final days.
My family and I would like to take a moment to say Thank You for all your kind words and all the love, support and prayers that have been given to us over the last year. It lifts our hearts whenever we see Barb’s Bench at Safeway or the Lafayette playground because we know her spirit lives on.
Our love and thanks goes out to you all,
Bob, Melissa, Tim, Whitney, Luke, Little Conner, and the rest of my family
The little photo shows little Conner on “Barb’s bench,” which is inside the new Admiral Safeway, as shown in our coverage from its opening day last August. That was two months after Ms. Fuda’s life was cut short by cancer; she had worked at the old Admiral Safeway for more than 40 years.
