I remember Barbara being such a loving and caring person; her family was very special to her. She lived close to my Mother and they enjoyed visiting with each other whenever possible.

I know Barbara truly appreciated the care given to her by Ruth, Glen, and Jimmy and other family members. Pls don’t have any regrets; you all did a terrific job. Love to all, Sharon and Wally Kamm
