    To the Family of Barbara, So sorry for your loss. Seems like it was only last year that I spoke with Barbara & Sylvia at their Mom’s service. As a kid across the road, decades ago, I thought Barbara was a wonderful person. Will be praying for you all, to feel HIS presence & comfort to get through this.

    So sorry for your families loss! I worked many years with Barbara at the post office. She was the sweetest most caring person I have ever met. I was lucky enough to run into her grocery shopping at Kroger and we would stand there and talked for half an hour or more! I know she will be greatly missed. I know the angels are rejoicing having her their with the other members of her family that have gone on before her.

    What a precious spirit Barbara always shared with those around her. She had the sweetest smile and most gentle spirit of anyone I ever knew. I never ever heard a negative word pass from her lips and her demeanor was such that she made whomever was near her feel comfortable and ease. I was fortunate enough to spend time with her both in out of class and the memories I have will remain with me as long as I live. May our Lord grant her family and friends comfort, peace and assurance that we’ll see her again when God calls us Home.
