    Barbara came into our lives when she married my brother. She loved and took care of him until his death. I found her to be one of the most caring, sweetest people I have ever met. She was also a caring daughter-in-law to my mother. I am so honored to have had her in my life for these past years. I also was able to visit her this year and enjoy her company one more time. I will forever be grateful for her sweet and also funny disposition. Rest peacefully Babs…….I loved you.
