I grew up with Mike @ 1st CCOD, LRCA, baseball, and swimming. Barb was 1 of my adopted Moms. I have very fond memories of her over the years. My condelences to the entire family. She may be gone, but her memory lives with you!
My sympathy to Mark and Mike. Barb was a true friend and I’m grateful I knew her. She had the best sense of humor!! Love you, Barb 🙏
Barb, my long time BFF, I will miss our long conversation, Hobart to Scottsdale.
We shared so much fun through our years, and especially when you put the Lord first in your life and found the real peace that passes understanding. With that I will see you later.
Love to your family! Pray you will all have joy and peace in your lives! It’s there reach out!!
Heavy heart today at the passing of a dear lifetime friend, remembering the neighborhood fun. Flashlight tag in the Cemetery to walking the streets of Independence hill…dancing during lunch in the gym, all the great times. God has called a friend because he needs you Barb. See you when its my turn. Love and cherish every minute we had.
