What a loss this is to us at Southeast Baptist Church, and especially to the Mexican Train Gang! Her sense of humor kept us laughing as she asked "where's the pennies" She loved her family, her church and her friends, and we all loved her. Sweet Sweet Barbara, I miss you!

Barbara was the nicest, sweetest person. Loved our SS Class at Southeast Baptist. Always had a smile on her face and was a true friend. We will truly miss her. Until we meet again Barbara!...🙏🙏🙏

So sorry to hear about Bobbie Jean's passing. She was a good friend, as well as, a relative (she was sister to my aunt, so I considered her related by marriage anyway). I loved her and still continue to miss her at work. We have shared each others worry's, concerns and so many laughs together. She was a unique person and such a blessing to me and always will be. May the family find comfort in knowing she is with the Lord. Elizabeth, I know you will greatly miss her and I will be praying for you especially and for the rest of your family.
