Mrs. Buckalew was a customer where I worked, Suddenlink. She always wanted to deal with me only when she came in to do business. But she always wanted to talk about everything else besides what she came in for and would be at my desk for several minutes. She always said I was too kind and polite to not run her away. I will miss her. Rest In Peace!

Bobby, Robin & family,
I was so sorry to hear of Barbara’s passing. She was a special person & friend. I miss our conversations in either her yard or ours almost everyday. She lived life to the fullest every day & always reminded me to do the same.
