Barbara was a very special friend,and worked with her for many years..She loved to share her cookies and other delicious desserts she made. The last time I saw her was when she went to assisted living. She was out front just talking with another lady. I don’t think she ever met a stranger..She had a lot of friends.She really enjoyed life and loved her family so very much. I know she is with her family that went before her and I can see her just talking and laughing with them. I know you will miss her. May God give you peace and comfort during this time of grief. Praying for all the family.Mary
