In Memory of Barbara Holm
As told by her:

I am now and forever free---
Whispering in your ear” Celebrate Me”.

“Celebrate me” not just for today
But always and ever.

“Celebrate me” and let me go
To chase my own rainbow.

I'll never forget you my loved ones
So cherish what we had.

I am now free and soaring high,
Above the clouds, with God, am I.

Remember me with smiles and laughter
Even if you are hurting inside;

Remember to “Celebrate me”
Each and every day,
And don't ever forget
That God loves you best!!!!


Melinda, Jay, Ryan, Christina and family

Just know that we are all thinking of you and hoping you find comfort in knowing your sorrow we are sharing of Barbara. We love you,
Diane, Shele-n-K'Lee and Jimmy and Lois.

To Barbara's family-
I too was both a neighbor and fellow classmate from St. Michaels, and our mothers were long time friends too. We shared many great times together over our school years, but sadly lost track of each other as I have been in New York for more than 40 years. May all your wonderful memories of her be of comfort to you now.

Another great lady from our class gone too soon. My prayers are with the family.
