Dear Family,
My deepest sympathy at your loss. Barb has been a sweet friend to so many. When my Mother was very ill, and in the hospital, it was Barb who helped us through a difficult time. I shall never forget her kindness, nor her special children! God Be With You! Lovingly, Bonnie Hutchison

Barb and I were cousins and so many of my childhood memories surround her. She was my first friend I can remember. I thank God every day that in the past number of years, she and I had become closer again. She went on local excursions with me and my sister and cousins on my Mom's side. She even came to our monthly cousins dinners . Barb was such a sweet and gentle soul and I will miss sharing her with the other side of my family. They loved her as much as I did. She will be greatly missed by all of us. My sincere condolences to Tom and her family. I thank you Mike and Lisa for keeping me up to date on your Mom.

I was lucky and got to go to the beach one year with the GIRL’S we had a great time. Barb was lots of fun. We even got her to put her feet in the ocean the last day we were there. She will be missed. Thoughts and prayers for her and her family and friends.
