Barbara and I were classmates, across the street neighbors in Crane and a very special person. Her voice was as sweet as her personality and it was so wonderful to reconnect at our reunion. My sincere sympathy to her family.

I can't remember when there wasn't a Barbara Wagnon. Our Grandparents lived in the same small town and were friends, Our parents graduated together and were family friends,Barbara and I graduated together, we were born in the same hospital, our Dads worked for the same company and we lived in the same oilfield camps growing up. She was a real Sweetheart and a fine Lady. She has been all her life.She will be sorely missed but greatly welcomed into the Kingdom of heaven. Love you Barbara.

This lady will be missed by all. She was always there for anyone who needed help. I remember her laugh and smile and the help she gave in seeing our last class runion was a success.

I am so glad that we got to reconnect in the past year. Life has a way of robbing years from you, and then you look up and time has flown by. I loved our long visits when I took Dad to the farm. I was looking so forward to having more. Barbara was very special. Leesa Huey Stephens
