    I am deeply saddened and sorry for the loss of my cousin Barbara. I will always hold dear to my heart the wonderful memories that we shared growing up together. There are many days that I still remember the best of times visiting her and my Aunt Rosemary, Uncle Frank, Linda and Gerri.I loved going there playing the piano with Barbara and laughing every night upstairs in the attic bedrooms before bed! Listening to the sounds of the highway not far away and the peacefulness I would always feel there. I guess life got in the way of staying in touch unfortunately and it makes me sad to say that.. but…Those were truly the best of times growing up. I love you Barbara and may you rest in peace with our loving Lord! ❤️

    So sorry to hear about Barbara. We spent many years enjoying softball with all our girls. Always a good time. Also, enjoyed our time at the lake with the beautiful house. I remember when it was first built:-) I have nothing but good memories whenever we were together. Even tho we have not seen each other in such a long time I always have a smile when thinking of her. Our thoughts are with everyone now at this difficult time.
