Thinking about Aunt Barb, there are a lot of memories over the years. The Whitehead's and Rabideau's were kind of a blended family (bond between two sisters) Aunt Barb was always there at every event and supported all the life changes that took place over the years. There will always be a special place in my heart for Aunt Barb. She loved Bob, Carol and her grandchildren with all her heart and was very proud of her family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Love Lisa
