Both my Mom and I were saddened to learn that Barbara has passed on. She was a beautiful woman on the outside, and her heart and soul were even more beautiful. The world is a better place because of her, and those who had the blessing of knowing her are better people because of her warm, loving and welcoming heart and spirit. Our condolences to her family and other loved ones. May fond memories of happy times bring you comfort and peace.

Mom was a magnificent woman that I will always look up to. Her kindness was ongoing. Her talents never-ending. She taught me to
cook, sew, paint, crochet, and so much more. She never said a swear word but would mutter "Oh your mother wears army boots" instead. From her "garbage sandwiches" to her dislike of "garlic" to her hate of "exercise", MOM you are embedded in my heart. My grief of losing you is unending, but my love for you is forever. I love you mom, #3 .
