Barbara gave me, my first job. She hired me even knowing I had no work experience. She took me under her wing and encouraged me in every way. This was at the time Taylor Rental went on computers. I was interested in computers and learning the equipment and this job led to a 30 year career for me. Most of the credit goes to Barbara because she saw something in me, that even I did not know was there. I will never forget Barbara and John and consider them as friends.
My condolences to John and Penny, Dawn and Colleen, and their families. My prayers are with each of you. Rest in peace Barbara, my friend.

I have some of my fondest memories with Mrs. Fitz and her family. She was such a generous, kind, and thoughtful lady. She was always there to cheer me and Jennifer on regardless of the sport. She was one of our biggest cheerleaders!
She was so gracious to open up her home in Marietta as well as her home in Seagrove. We had the best time hanging out at their house and at the beach! She was the absolute best host!
I’m eternally grateful that she was a part
of my life.
Praying for comfort for Mr. Fitz and his girls. We love y’all!

I have so many great memories from spending time with the Fitzpatrick family - playing softball, hanging out during summer days at your house, going to Florida with your family, just to hit the highlights. I know how much you all loved her and will miss her so. Praying for The Lord to provide Comfort that only He can.

Sorry I can not be there. I will always cherish the fun times Barbara and I had on Halloweens. We always had fun giving out pop corn and cotton candy. We had our own treats as well. Love to all of you.

Barbs, you are now going to be united again with your big sister. Spoil you again maybe?
Way back in Jersey when we first met (when you said "Mama said I gotta sit here". )That's when we ,your big sister and I ,used to sit in a hammok under the trees during our dating days
It took some money to get you to go away.
Seeing you over the years becoming a mother
Then flourishing to be a loving grandmother
with a great guy as a hubby. It was a pleaure to know you ,for it was as John knows never dull.
