Many years Aunt Barb welcomed us into her home to stay during Motes reunions. We loved staying with this wonderful lady. We would take pictures every year and had old music on laptop. She loved that laptop that we donated to her. She loved looking through the pictures and listening to the music. Last time she stayed with us our yellow lab slept with her. Such a talented and loved woman. We love you Aunt Barb!

Aunt Barbara was one of the most precious people I’ve ever known. She was beautiful inside and out. She will be so missed.
