Dear jeff tart . I'm so sorry about your mothers passing. we had a lot of fun together working at clove lakes. I am still working there. This coming january 5th will be my 33rd anniversary at clove lakes. I remember working on the 4th floor . At the start of my shift 8am, barbara would be behind the nurses station. I'd be coming off the elevator and walking down the hall as soon as we'd see each other, we would run towards each other and hug each other like in the movies and the residents sitting in the hallway would be histerical laughing like crazy. she was always with a smile and making people laugh. The two of us were crazy. The good ol days at clove lakes. Years ago at christmastime, we would go around floor to floor caroling with the recreation dept. Barbara would be wearing bells and dressed up with holiday clothes. She will be sorely missed. My jaw just dropped when I heard about her passing. She put a lot of smiles on peoples faces including me. She made a lot of people happy. I always asked your mother about you from time to time because I remember when you worked at clove lakes in the housekeeping dept. Again jeff, my deepest, deepest condolences to you and your family. Rick Rubio(Clove Lakes Nursing Home).
