I absolutely love this photo and remember the day it was taken. Barbara was so excited, we stood talking and she was thrilled that the whole Family was coming for professional photos in her back yard. You can see the love in this picture! I love my neighbors and will certainly miss our conversations. A beautiful, kind, loving woman that will be dearly missed.
