Good-bye is meant to bring finality and closure to those left behind. How do you say good-bye to someone who was your mentor, your friend, but most importantly your sister? The memory vine of your life will continue for years during family discussions and flash-back memories that come to those you considered friends. So I will not say good-bye sister. I pray God opened his arms to you and to see you again. Sandy

I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Barb, my friend, and occasional partner in band boosters and other school functions, but especially as an excellent nurse. She was picked by me to assist me in a longterm care facility, because of her amazing nursing skills and people skills. She lifted the load off my shoulders then, and after work, we could share a ride to the next band competition and laugh all the way there, and back. I adored her. I considered her a good friend. I will miss that lady. For me, Gail, and Linda...thanks for the memories.

Found memories of coaching Ian and Sandi in baseball and softball and having Barb always being there to support us and helping us whenever we needed. Always encouraging us coaches to be our best.

Rest well my friend
