    I’m sure you will miss Barbara. She and Paul were wonderful neighbors and friends when we lived on Forest Dr. Barbara and I seemed to have a lot in common when we talked about our times growing up on the farm. Thinking of the Larson family, especially those little Larson kids at Rossville, but my guess is they’re not so little any more! Good memories of Barbara! ❤️

    What a great lady and neighbor. I’m grateful and blessed that she touched my life during the years. Heaven will be richer as we mourn her loss here on earth. Blessings for peace and comfort to all the family.
