I only met you twice, but I could tell you would have made a wonderful friend. Those who knew you all agree that you will be missed dearly by your family and friends. You can now rest peacefully, sleep and dance with the angels.

Barbara is an amazing soul. She didn't find happiness in material "things". She was joyful about birds, butterfies, flowers, fruit trees, and God's simplest of blessings. Her children and son-in-law were her pride and joy, and there wasn't a day that passed that she didn't speak of them in the most loving ways. She will be greatly missed, but we have an angel above us who is serving her Lord, who she looked forward with great anticipation of meeting. She has reached her glorious destination.

Sincerest condolences to Jennifer, Eric, Vincent, Michael and family. Our prayers are with your during this most difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and the family. For over 3 years, Barbara and I were cube neighbors at Norco inside a 30x30 box, allowing us an opportunity to get to know one another more, perhaps on occasion a little too close for comfort. But she was surely determined to make the best of it. I enjoyed hearing her stories about her deceased Mama and Daddy, you Michael and her children, including the teenage girls. I admired her strength, dedication and compassion for others. And I miss seeing what new tree she planted and its ripened fruits. She taught me how to grow strawberries inside a pot-cheap...that's her, a darn good cost engineer! Her memory lives on; she has made a positive impact upon me. God bless you and yours...
