Barbara will always be a memory in my life. She had a great spirit. There were times we laughed together and cried together. I'll always remember the sparkle in her eyes whenever she spoke of her family as she loved them dearly. May she rest in peace.

May your loving memories bring you peace during this trying time. Praying for your family. Glenda Haddock, July 8, 2015 I am so sorry for your loss.
