Our hearts go out to you and your family as well as our prayers. She was a lovely lady who will be missed. Stay strong. Julie and Kevin Chesshir, August 25, 2016 I can see a lot of you in her face. A beautiful lady. I'm praying for strength for you that I couldn't find at the time. It's a tough road to lose you parents. I thought I would have more time with mine, but God was ready for them. I talk to them everyday. Bless you and your family Sherry. Gary Vandeventer, August 24, 2016 We are so sorry for the loss of a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. I know she will be missed by all. Please except our deepest condolences. Even though we are unable to attend, you all are in our prayers. May God place his comforting arms around this family and see them trough this difficult time. God Bless You All. Jim and Liz Reed, August 23, 2016 I am so sorry to hear about Barbara! I have so many fond memories of her, and I think back on them often. Y'all were a huge part of my childhood, and Barbara and A were so special to me. I pray that y'all find comfort in knowing that she's in a better place. I know that doesn't take away the sting of losing someone so special, but I hope that it helps. I know that time and distance creates a space between people, but do know that I am thinking of you all everyday during this time. Ashton Cabler, August 22, 2016 I am so sorry for your loss.
