I went to church with Bob and Barbara until I moved after my husband Ron Van passed away three years ago. I always enjoyed both. So sorry for your loss of such a sweet lady. Sending my love and prayers. Cecelia Van, Charleston, S.C.

We will always remember Barb and the many memorable moments we shared at baseball games, dinners out and at our place. The trips we took and the times we shared in the UP of Michigan. Barb will be missed with her smiling face and insightful comments. May she now rest in the arms of our Lord in heaven. Lloyd and Carol
