Condolences & Tributes

Celebrate Barbara's life with a short message, photo or video!

I would like to express my sincere condolences and prayers to the family and friends of your loved one and my friend, Barbara Ann. Barbara Ann was a woman of great courage strength and faith who did all things with great passion and gusto. There was no in between for her. She was outspoken and had the courage to say what others thought but couldn't or wouldn't express, and that is one of the traits I admired about her. Barbara Ann was interested in all things people and had a knack for forming friendships with those she viewed as sincere and fair. She was a neighbor of mine as a child through adolescence and she has been a sincere friend to me the past 5 years since I returned home. Barbara Ann, I will miss sitting on your porch with you and talking about current events, life, or how you were there to support me. So long for now, you will be greatly missed. Every time I look at your house, I will remember you sitting on the porch in your favorite spot smiling and waving at those of us driving by. Until we meet again in heaven, take your rest. And I know you will be helping to keep order in heaven. In Sympathy,
