To the Anderson Family-Barb was a sweet lady. We cannot say enough about her devoted husband, Paul, who was by her side the whole way. It was a pleasure and blessing to be able to help in the little ways we could. Your friends at Interim HealthCare.

My Aunt Barbara was like a second mother to me growing up. I am so grateful our families lived right next to each other. I will always remember her wisdom, kindness, and most of all her lovely sense of humor. She was and is extremely loved.
