So very sorry for the loss of Barbara. She was a wonderful lady and loved life. My favorite memory is the trip we took with her to Branson, Missouri. She was a great tour guide and hostess. She loved her family and went above an beyond to make everyone feel welcomed and loved. God bless and keep her and watch over her sweet family during this difficult time.

So sorry to the family for your loss. I really enjoyed getting to know Barbara through our Eastern Star chapter. I know that she enjoyed the luncheon and seeing everyone in their costumes. That was a fun memory our chapter was able to have together with her.
