We have lost a wonderful lady; a spouse, mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother, sister and most of all a friend. She never knew a stranger and enjoyed doing for others no matter the request. I was lucky enough to be a part of Ms. Barbara’s family for the last twelve years and there was never a time where she didnt show me or anyone else love. Her heart was always full with plenty left to give. She always had a smile and a kind word as she sat in her swing on her porch. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten and always in our hearts.
