To: Tony, James, and Margaret, Bill called me last night to tell me that Barbara had passed away. I have lost a dear friend. Because of both of us being sick for the last couple of years, we were unable to see each other but I did visit her before I moved to Georgia. I was at Morning Point and she was at Lifecare. When I got to visit her and walked in she looked up at me and said, “Well I’ll be Damm”. Same old Barbara. We had many good times and laughs together gardening, canning, quilting, and just hanging out together. I will always remember the fun and good times we shared. She is with Boozie now and she is so happy so do not morn her death.
Margaret: I know you will miss your sister but be assured she is in a better place now and no more days of not being able to do what she wanted to do. God bless.

Sorry not to have seen her in years.
She was a first cousin by my father and her mother.
We often visited in our younger years but time
changes things and we grew separated.

My sincere grief for the immediate family.
