One of the best things I remember about Barb was her laugh. If you ever heard her laugh you could always tell if it was Barb from another room. I also live out of state and unfortunately I haven't had a lot of time to spend with Barb for sometime now, however every year when I would come back to visit my parents mom and I always went down to see her. Unfortunately when I was home in August/September Barb was not up to seeing visitors. She has a wonderful family and she will certainly be missed dearly. I am glad you are at peace and you are in heaven with some of the finest!

I haven't been around Barb for many years because of living in Colorado so my memories go way back to when we were growing up.Some of my favorite times and fondest memories are being around Barb she was always looking to have fun.I can not remember any specific conversations we had but we did have quite a few. It is probably better that I can't remember. Rest in peace Barb and my thoughts go out to everybody in the family God Bless
