I am so sad to learn of Barb’s passing. She was a sweetheart and tried to be a helper to her friends and neighbors. I have fond memories of her visits to my office and good conversations about her family that she loved so much. I so admired Jodi for her attention to her Mom and Sherri for always pitching in to help her mom when she had something going with her neighbors. I enjoyed seeing her special jewelry and hearing about lunch with her girl friends and seeing the newest pictures of the grandbabies she was so proud to add to her family. It was sad when she moved but happy for her being in the sunshine of FL. I am so thankful she was part of my life for a while and she left an impression on me by her kindness and care just like she did her family and friends. We have lost a wonderful lady and I know you all are grieving the loss of a mother that really loved her family. We need more Barb’s in the world.
