My sympathies to Barbara's family. I will always remember all of the good times we shared together. My heart has a special place for my special friend and her family. My prayer would be that God receives her in his house of many mansions.

My love for ever,

My deepest sympathies to the family and loved ones. May the Lord comfort and give you strength and everlasting peace.

I remember the 'Sunday dinners at moms', that's what it was called. She opened up her home to us and never saw us or thought of us any different than family. She embodied true family love, making sure that whomever walked through her front door felt welcomed and loved. Serving others and making sure they were taking care of, that's a value she exemplified. After dinner she always asked, "did you have enough to eat", because she genuinely cared, it wasn't just a question. One of the last dinners we arrived late, and she made sure we knew that we were late and told us to arrive on time.

Sometimes the expression "give you the shirt off their back" is said about people, but she would without any hesitation do anything to help if you were in need.

We will miss you and cherish all the fond memories we made together. From Sunday dinners to driving to North Carolina to spend time with family. This separation is temporary, for we will see each other again and maybe then you will teach me how to make your sweet tea. Or we can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee.

My Sweet Sister,
You grew those wings before many of us was ready, although it is comforting knowing you are with six of your siblings and the parents!
We shared so many fun times. We had a blast in our trip to Texas. I left after a year, you met Dale and stayed. We had a lot of fun times that year, you even went to work with me and we learned how to play dominos. You always find time for others when they need you.
You sure had a rough life at many stages of your life, I admired you for your strength and determination through it all!
Bingo was your only outlet and I was blessed to visit you past few years and visit bingo hall and met some of your great friends! It made my heart happy to be part of some enjoyment in your life.
You loved your husband, kids and family! An inspiration for many!
Love you and will miss you everyday!
Your sister,

I remember the great times we had at Bingo, especially when you 1st taught me how to play. You would be playing your 2 full sheets while helping me finish my 1 sheet each time a number was called. Soon enough I was just as quick and passionate as you were.
My love and passion for cooking and serving others came straight from you, especially learning how to clean while cooking and why it was so important. The same goes for learning the value of family, always being there for each other even if they're not blood. Our family dinners every Sunday will always be in my thoughts and heart. I hope to one day share the same values with my own family.
I will always carry these life lessons with me as my moral compass guides me through life's ups and downs.
I know you are watching over us all up in Heaven, guiding us in our hearts to do what is right.
I love and miss you Grandma Barbara but this is not goodbye but more like I will see you later.
Your Grandson, Shane

Barbara will always be remembered for her generosity & kindness to others. She would do anything for anyone without asking for anything in return. She loved here bingo & had many friends from the bingo hall. My thoughts & prayers go out to her family. Thank you Elaine for keeping us posted during her illness & after. She was such a good friend. I will miss her dearly.

My deepest sympathy on the passing of your mother, she was the kindest person I ever met.

So many people knew her and all I here are kind words, she will never be forgotten. She was a good friend and we always had a good time playing Bingo, so we could just be with friends.

If there is anything I good do for your family please do not hesitate to ask.

Love Sheila (Midge)
