    Such a special lady to our family! Every childhood holiday and special occasion memory includes Barbara and Bob. She always made us a Shirley Temple and served it in a “real” cocktail glass with a napkin making us feel special. You could always count on seeing her or Bob in the picture window when you went by their house and they always waved. I will miss visiting her.

    Sorry to hear of Barbara’s passing. We were her mother’s pastor for many years and have known her for over 40 years. Actually was her chaplain with Viaquest for a total time. She was a very nice person and really cared for her mother.

    I am sorry Barbara, my mother told me your name many years ago, but you are to busy to look in phone book or go on line to find where somebody lives or where they are. You put off things oh I’ll do that tomorrow or next week. Now it is to late. You were the answer to a lot of questions. Now the answers are gone. I know that you will be missed. So to your family, I am sorry for your lose. Remember the good times and forget the bad, for one day we will all be together again.

    I knew Barbara when I was little, then got reacquainted with her after buying my grandparents’s home. I am so thankful to have had her as a friend. She told me that she knew God would take care of her so she never had to worry.
