The fondest memory I have of Barbara is the day of celebration for Sheila and Calvin's wedding at Hanging Rock. She was so excited to be there decorating and helping with everything as everyone close to the family and friends came together. It was like a huge family reunion filled with so much laughter and sharing stories. Even if you were not immediately related she made you feel like family. She and I talked about how happy she was that Calvin and Sheila found each other and that she was just so happy. You could see it in her eyes when she watched the two of you. If ever a mom was so beautiful and proud of her daughter, that day would have been one of many. She loved her family. And she is still watching over each one of you with the same pride and joy.

My deepest sympathy goes out to my dear college roommate Sheila, her brother Jimmy, her son Chris, her husband Calvin and her dad. I've known this family since 1985. They are close knit, loving, and the kindest I have ever met. Sheila and I have shared so many similar life altering events since college. We may be four hours apart but we manage to stay in touch. I'm blessed to have known Mrs. Roop. She was such a beautiful person inside and out. Sheila, please reach out to me anytime as the song goes..."That's What Friends Are For". I love you and your family.
Love always with Condolences,
Audra Louise Gray
