I was only 13 when we started to attend Word of Faith Temple on Frenchman street. She made an instant impression on me. I learned how to sing harmony by listening to her during praise and worship. She had a personality that caused her to be funny, loving, and a heart that was easily touched. I can still see her in various skits with her sidekick Helen Potter. I can say that in all the years I have known her and been around her, she never had a harsh word about anyone or anything. She was always positive; Joyful and kind all the time. She was warm and passionate toward the people. Most of all, she was loved. Her coronation in heaven will last the equivalent of months in earth time. She will be missed but we sorrow not as those who have no hope, for shall all be reunited with her one day.

Where do we begin...Barbara almost instantly began to share her love with a young, recently married couple hungry and searching for a church to place their roots. That couple was Mike and I and she not only shared her wisdom and her heart, but opened her home and family to us. She became a second mother, a confidant...A beautiful example of how to live. When Angie was born, Barbara was her dearest “aunt” and babysitter and nurse in the middle of the night. Angie thought she was a real part of the family for years! And when she married, once again Barbara’s love was so inclusive. And when Spence, Wyatt and Izzy arrived, they too thought they were related!! There were precious times when she held us close and gave us comfort that still resonate in our heart. Her laughter, her sense of humor and her grace is unmatched. We love you, Aunt Barbara...hug Granny and PawPaw for us. ❤️ Mike & Susan
