My condolences to the family. I enjoyed getting to know Barbara when we were neighbors. My son, who at 8 years old, truly enjoyed visiting with her. She was so sweet and will always be remembered.

Dear Mrs. McCabe,
Please accept my sincere sympathy at the passing of your sister. She was one of the sweetest ladies-and you always saw the 2 of you together. I will always remember her infectious smile. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers as you face the coming days.
