It has been two months since I lost you, my very dear, dear niece, Barbie Hardin. You are in my thoughts and prayers the first thing in the morning and the last thing at night. My heart still has a big hole in it that makes me so very sad for my sudden loss. I have so many things that we did not get to talk about......My memories go back to when you still lived in Pennsylvania and we spent so much time together. You were like a big sister to Kelly. Barbie, you were the sweetest little girl with those beautiful blue eyes and such a sweet heart. You remained that person through all the good and bad times. I miss you more every day. It is like a part of me went with you. I regret all the times I could have picked-up the phone and just said "hey" instead of telling your Mom to tell you "I love her". Please know you are so loved and you have always held a special place in my heart since the first day I saw you . Barbie, you are very, very special to me, more than words can say.
I know you are free of pain, both physically and mentally. Just knowing you are in God's hands helps with my sad times. I am so happy you are in heaven with the Good Lord and Grandma and Grandpa Stover. We will all be together some day. Until then, I love you, Aunt Rhea
