The Glover Family,
I count it a special blessing to have gotten to know Mrs. Barbara through our church Homebound Ministry. She was a faithful church member and I enjoyed seeing her at church but through our Homebound visits I got to see just how strong her faith was and how much she cherished her family! She was such a go getter and would always be busy doing something, either volunteering or working in her yard right up until a couple of months before she passed away. She battled the cancer like a champ and she was a true blessing to me! My prayers are with the family as they rejoice in the promise of where she is and strength to lift them up as they mourn her absence!

The neighborhood will not be the same with Barbara. She was a mom to all especially when we were teenagers. She loved her children and always worried about them! She was an example of unconditional love for all of us. I know her family will miss her greatly but they can take comfort in knowing that they were there for her when she needed them . I am so sorry that both Cheryl and I are out of town this week. Love you all.

To the Glover Family, We were in the same Sunday School Class with Mrs. Barbara at Fleming Baptist Church, and she always would give us a hug saying "I love you", when she came in the class. She will be dearly missed! Our love and prayers are with you all at this time as we trust in God's promises: There will be a resurrection , in the future & we will see our love ones again! In Sympathy/ Herbert L. & Alberta Wilson-Jones
