Barbara I am so blessed to have had you in my life, I am so sad that I can’t talk to you on the phone everyday you always gave me great information about what ever I was going through at the time.
I will never forget the day at the pony Ronny-ranch( don’t know how to spell it if it’s wrong) when you dared me to ride that crazy pony that tried to throw me off 😂 but I held on for dear life ha ha and I survived.
The Bible you sent me in 2005 is my most treasured thing I have read the note you wrote 150 times and I never opened the page until yesterday and there was a whole other page that I have never seen until yesterday and yes we will be neighbors in Heaven save me a spot I love you baby Rest In Peace 😘

Barbara was such a nice lady. I went to high school with her and Jesse both awesome persons, and always remember her having a smile on her face! It was a shock to hear she had left us. I send prayers to Jesse, and her family during this difficult time. Barbara it”s never goodbye but see you soon.

Barbara and I lost one of our dearest and closest friends in Pam Gordy early in 1983. She was an amazing woman as a young woman and was instrumental in helping to put the loss we both felt into perspective. When we reconnected years later through Facebook she picked up the phone and it was as though time was seamless. Her heart was still so full of love and support for our friendship. I will miss her positive spirit and the joy she shared with those she cared about. May you ride as a raindrop on the wings of angels my friend.

Words can't being to describe how much I will miss you. I will never forget you sending me off to see Florence and The Machine with Beks; you made me take a nap while my hair was curling so I'd have enough energy to dance and sing along. Thank you for always being there for me even when I thought was old enough not to need you. Rest in peace mommy

Love you,
Mandy
