To Joyce, but my sympathy is with the entire family in the loss of Barbara. My memories of Joyce and Barbara, and their parents, go back to the 1940's when we were neighbors and playmates. May God be with you...

Our deepest sympathy to the Batman family during your time of loss. We worked with Barbara at Shoneys Inn, and she sure was a litte "spitfire", she also made the best applesauce cake at Christmas time! tho we didn't keep in contact much, we still thought of her often, Barbara was the kind of person you couldn't forget. Just know she left alot of happiness and wisdom to those who knew her! Carol Romano & Carolyn Albino

Dear Jack, Michael, Jamie, Cindy and George,

My deepest sympathy to you all in the loss of Barbara. I was just thinking of her and how much she liked to laugh, joke, and have a good time. She was always willing to be helpful. We had some good times...camping and going on picnics....things that somehow have gotten lost in this day and time.

She has left you all with lots of love and good memories.

God Bless all of you and comfort you now and in the days ahead.
