Such a beautiful, beautiful lady. Barbara was our church pew buddy! We looked forward to seeing her on Sunday mornings until Covid interrupted our lives. Then we became texting buddies- sharing prayers during her chemo treatments and celebrating when she rang the bell for her final treatment! She was a lovely blessing in our lives. We’ll miss her everytime we sit down in our pew at church❤️
I will truly miss Barbara. She was such a loving and giving woman. She and Sonny shared so many things. They loved their travels, dancing and being with family.
Barbara was such a gifted, talented woman. Her skill with sewing could match any well-known designer. Barbara ‘s faith helped her through many difficult times. I will really miss or visits. I will miss her laughter, too.
