Dear family and friends of Barbara and Russell, my husband Chris and I bought the home at 41 East ave on Planting Island from the Nilsons. Barbara’s garden still shines bright! We are grateful for the space to raise our children and savor the beauty of the home they built. I am sorry for your loss and for the delay in my post, as I just heard the news. Best, Heidi Klapinsky

To my Mother-In-Law, Barbara L. Nilson,
I learned much from you about decorating, flower arranging, baking, antiques, miniatures, sailing, wind, tides, color, fabric, crafts and many other topics of gracious living. Most of all I learned about people from distinctive perspectives that included living graciously. I remember how we laughed when discussing we are both Mayflower descendants-along with millions of other people. I wear the sweater that you knit for me years ago and always receive compliments. I imagine your tasty your Christmas cookies. I remember how you thanked my when I told you that you would be missed. Love, Holly
