Barbara was an amazing little lady who touched my heart!!! I had the privilege of getting to know her in her later years and I am forever grateful for knowing her. She would seek me out at work and we had a special bond. I spent a lot of time with her in the last year and she made me remember why I chose my profession!!! She was a sweet little lady. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this time as you all were very important to her. She spoke of you often.
