  4. It was SO many years ago that I met Grandma Barbara, thru Nathan, and visited with her just once; but I remember her being one of the most joyfully friendly and welcoming Charming Southern Women. In later years as careers develop and we move on, I had the pleasure of meeting and befriending Candice, which to be embodies all of Grandmas Barbara’s gracious qualities, which I’ve never forgotten and reflected on fondly.
    I am so sorry for your, yours and their loss. I pray that you find peace and comfort in your memories of Grandma Barbara
