I worked with Barbara at the Lutheran home and I will never forget her kindness and her love. My friend Tracy and I adored her Tracy has gone home to be with the Lord and now she will be with our friend Barbara. Barbara always had a smile and a kind word and she was a joy to be around. She was always willing to help when we ask for help she was a wonderful nurse and my heart broke when I saw that she had passed away. She was one of my favorite nurses to work with she will always be loved and missed and I will meet her again one day. May she rest Forever In the Arms of Jesus I love you Barbara forever and always. Your CNA 2 who you always spoke to when you saw me out in public no matter where I was at with that big smile on your face. My prayers are with you Family for Comfort because I know you will have a big hole in your heart because she is a wonderful person. May God comfort you and be with you always.

I am so sorry to hear of Barbaras passing. She was always so special to me. I remember coming (up on the hill) to play with all the Boggs kids. What fun we had. I will never forget her laugh and the kind person she was.
