I am so sorry for the loss of my aunt Barbara. Although I didn’t get to see her much in recent years some of my best growing up memories are with her and her family. You were loved and will be missed.

My heart goes out to you Davey, and John-John over your loss. Of all of my Aunts, Aunt Barb was always the quite soul, speaking softly and quietly. I think she was extremely proud of her sons and I know she really appreciated the fact that after Uncle Dave died, she had both of you around her to love her and help her take care of the farm.
I'm sorry that I will not be able to attend the services due to health reasons, but my thoughts and prayers will be with both of you.

Dear Ones, I am truly sorry for your loss of your mom. What an amazing lady Barb has been in my life as a friend, mother figure, and prayer partner at 1st Nazarene church. She always made a point of aski g about my daughters even though grown and we hugged every week, saying I love you. I am sure quarantine was hard for her not being to give those precious hugs. Barb always spoke highly of her David and John and your family, you meant so much to her. Praying blessings for each of you and strength in this new chapter in life. May you be blessed daily. Hugs

It is with sadness that I send this. Barb is very special to me. I met her at church while going with my daddy. She always had to give and have a hug. Barb will definitely be missed.

Barbara has alway been a very loving person. She has always been so calm and easygoing. She passed away , in an ambulance, on her way to the hospital. No time for a final goodbye, no time for one more cook out, no time for a picnic! The things that we all loved and enjoyed. Her Savior said, “ nobody will know the hour, or the day when you are called home “. We sure will miss her!
Gone but never ever forgotten.
