To Barb’s Family:
She was a loyal and dear friend to my mother. When my mother moved back to Fort Wayne after many years and started going to the Mocha Lounge, Barb was there to welcome her to the morning gang! When I would visit the coffee shop, Barb was ready with a hug and a warm welcome.

She was a lovely lady and will be missed by all.

Dear Kathy and Tom,
I have tried twice to send a message and it keeps disappearing. If it doesn’t work this time I will hope Kelly has a way to contact you.

I loved your Mom dearly. We had such fun in Ft. Wayne all those years ago. Maplewood, taking you girls out of school in kindergarten, homeroom, etc. We solved all the problems of the world over coffee in our kitchens.

She was the kindest, sweetest funniest person I knew there and I really missed her when we moved away.

My heart goes out to you and Tom. If there is a heaven she and your Dad are looking down on the two of you with more love than you could possibly know.
