I will always remember Barb from when I was a young boy. When I was small I thought of her like a second mother. I spent many days playing with Kurt & Kreg. Barb was very kind and would buy us pizza & ice cream. She will be missed. I am sorry for your loss.

I was honored to have Barb as my Stepmom, she was a beautiful person. Her love and support for her family and friends was everlasting. She offered kind words of support and comfort throughout my life that proved to be invaluable through all of the good times and all of the many trials and tribulations. She was always there for me. Words can not express how much she will be missed. I will cherish her and the many, many wonderful times we shared in my heart forever.
