I am so sorry to hear of aunt Barbara’s passing. I have wonderful memories of her. She was so soft and caring. A very gentle soul. Spending time at her house with uncle ray and my cousins, was always very special. My heart goes out to patty, Beth and Steven and all of her grandchildren.

We were so sad to hear of aunt Barbara passing away. Please know that our family is in prayers for you all. I know she was an amazing mom and grandmother, a rock and a safe place for so many.
I am reminded of how she liked to paint. I still have a little pink shelf that she made for me when I was a child. It held all my strawberry shortcake figures. (Which I still have). I love that little shelf and will always remember my Aunt when I see it .
Love to you,
Cyndi and family

You and I would drive around town for hours. Picking up. Bakery items, planting. Strawberries, wed go to Lowes for seeds ans family tree for thin mints and samoas. You stayed by my side everytime i needed to go to the hopsital. You guided me threw heart break but taught me how to heal. Your smile made life light up and your voice was sung out like it came from heaven. I am so thankful the work and love and memories. You gave and put in for everyone. I never doubted being loved with you around. You. And Grandpa both made me feel unconditional. Love. There is not a day i dont think of you. I didnt call as much as i should have. You deserved those calls, you deserved to be reminded you werent forgotten. All i can do is tell you now i love and miss you. Im so happy you are with grandpa again.
Zippity do da with your mom in heaven. Everytime i see a blue bird or a hummingbird ill know youre near. I will wait patiently to be able to hug you and grandpa again. You are my strength and guidance. You dont even know the strength you gave me to over come a recent problem in which I wont. Look back to. Rest easy grandma your family will always remember you.
