One of my favorite pictures of Barbara and the love of her life, Sutton at the 1978 Hawkins Family Reunion

Barbara was one of the sweetest, most loving person I have ever known. When ever I think of Barbara I picture her with a smile and a giggle, she was always so happy. Every summer I would go to North Carolina and Barbara and Sutton would insist my children spend at least a few days and nights with them since their children, Judy and Joey, were the same ages as my children. We played Bingo at the local hall. She is well known for her care and concern of her husband, Sutton, and his mother, our Aunt Tiny, who spent eight years in a nursing home following a stroke.

Aunt Tiny lost the ability to speak, but I don't think she realized that. I would drive down to see Aunt Tiny several times a year and would tell her a "dirty" joke, which she loved. I would let Barbara know I was going down and she would come over while I was there. Aunt Tiny would "tell" Barbara the joke I had told and Barbara would laugh and laugh, like she understood the joke. When we left Barbara would ask me if I had told Tiny a joke, I would admit I did, she would then want to know the joke, and laugh again.

Barbara was such a loving woman, the world and our family has lost a wonderful person.
