Countless is the number of people you've touched, Aunt Barbara, and I am comforted by the knowledge that you are in the loving arms of the Father and are embraced by Grandmom and Granddad, Uncle Robert, and Aunt Anne (Annie). My love goes out to Granddad Joe and Grandmom Alice's surviving children, my mom JoAnn McCree Walker and my uncle and aunt Richard and Debbie McCree, who have known you the longest. To Michelle, I cannot imagine your sorrow, but will be there for you whenever you need me. God bless, you and Louis, Gabrielle, Danielle, Louis, Arielle, and Joelle. Love and support to Uncle Louis during this difficult time. My prayers also go out to all your nieces and nephews and the many, many friends whose lives you have made that much better just by having the great privilege of knowing you. Rest well, beautiful lady. Never gone, never forgotten.
