We were very sad to hear about our long time friend Barbara from OLP. She was always delightful and full of fun, plus being very creative. We last saw her in March & had no idea we would receive this news just before Christmas, couple days after receiving her Christmas card. Our prayers and condolences to her family. We will miss her and her wonderful spirit.

Barbara was indeed a special lady... A dear long time friend to our mother Marcy Richards.. I remember them always together... Along with Elaine! The card table in Heaven just filled another chair!

My heartfelt condolences to Barbara's family. She was a wonderful, fun loving woman who was always smiling. Such a devoted friend to my mom, Marcy Richards. Had opportunity to visit with her this summer as my mom had left all her quilting fabric to Barb. All she kept saying was, "I feel like a kid in a candy store!". I know my mom and Barb are sharing a good game of bridge. God Bless you during this sad time...

As an OLP kid, I've known Barbara for over 50 years (went to school with Chris). She was such a wonderful person-happy, outgoing, caring...and a cherished friend to my Mom Marcelle Richards. I bet they are having a great bridge game now. Hope your memories help you through this touch time.
