Barbara was such a lovely person so full of God and compassion for others. She enjoyed spending time with people talking about the Bible and you could sense the desire she had to be close to Yeshua. She longed for the day when she would be with Him for eternity. Her desire was granted, even though she will be greatly missed by her friends and family.
