Barb Williams and her husband Bill are two of the most delightful people I have ever known. Their courtship, marriage and life together have been a joy and a blessing. As Barb's nephew, I can attest that Barb was one of my mother's biggest fans. Barb has taught us a lot about how we should treat one another. I will always be grateful for her kindness. Our condolences to friends and family.

Fondly,
Russell & Jane Twaddle
