I will always remember Mrs. E’s big smile and positive spirit. I have so many great memories of her - from unannounced visits on Christmas morning after Mass, July 4th BBQ’s , vacations on LBI to seeing her and Mr E walk home holding hands after morning Mass at St Phil’s. While saddened by her passing, I know she’s reunited with Al and Bert, and has that big smile on her face.
To the entire Entwistle family, I send my deepest condolences and am keeping you all in my prayers.

I remember one of the first times I met Barbara it was at Linda’s bridal shower. She made me and my mother feel so welcome and that we were immediately part of the family. Any event Barbara would lite up the room with her smile which partnered with her loving nature and kindness...she never lost this even in the time she became ill. I will always hold on to these memories and more.
Family, my sincere condolences. Remember that the wonderful memories of your mom will live in each of your hearts.
