  1. Barbara was a wonderful friend and neighbor. Her giving heart was a blessing to all who knew her. She never had a bad word to say about anyone and her Christian spirit was always grateful! She loved to fish and loved to cook & eat them as well. She was a wonderful cook and always wanted to share with her friends and neighbors her wonderful dishes & baked goods. She always had a twinkle in her eye and her laugh was contagious! I remember so vividly her & Melvin riding their bicycles in the neighborhood and Roscoe would be happily sailing along in Melvin’s bicycle basket.
    Her happy face & giving heart will be sorely missed by me and all those who knew her. Rest in Peace my Dear Friend and know that you were loved.

    • Well said Deb,

  2. My best friend from the moment we met 1999. We could talk and share stories for hours. I still can see her in her kitchen making her coleslaw. She finally gave me that recipe. We loved to fish together and go get our Coca-Cola’s. I miss her so much. She was the most thoughtful and caring person you could ever meet. So proud of Tasha and her grandkids. The last post I got from her was of her granddoggies. Rest in peace my sweet friend. Love Marilyn and Mr. Louis
