We were saddened to hear of Barbara's passing. She was a wonderful childhood friend and always had such a sweet spirit and bright smile. She is now free from pain, chemo, surgeries and anxiety. I know her parents were waiting at the gate for her and they are reunited and rejoicing today. Our deepest sympathies to each of you as you go through this dark valley. May the Lord be near to comfort your hearts. We love you.

Dennis, Donnie, Robin, Sandra and family'
Its very difficult to put into words how we feel right now. As we were growing up, Barbara was the true class of the neighborhood. She was the person that was always sweet and always pretty. I don't remember ever hearing her say a harsh word. I can't help but think about your parents requirement that their children grow up in church and now I can only imagine how happy they are to see their reward. Their beautiful daughter is now pain free and standing on streets of gold and sharing her smile with everyone. Heaven must really be something. Please know your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
