I just found out about Barbara. So sorry to hear. I grew up with Dot and Homer as our next door neighbors/family on Decatur Road. Barbara and Vicki are like my older sisters. Mark has always been like a brother. Fond memories ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.

I remember when Barbara would come into the Pharmacy and we would have little talks about just anything but mostly about Mark but the best part of seeing her was the hugs cause she could give good hugs. Mark Buck and I are so very sorry for your loss. We love you all.

Barbara is one sweet lady. And a very special Vol fan who has more Vol “jewels” than I do. But my memory is that she always sent the most beautiful Christmas cards and they were the first ones we received each season. Love you Lady.
