I remember Barbara as a special neighbor on Watkins Place. She was fun and kept the neighborhood hoping. She let us live in her basement apartment when our house sold, and we had not gotten a new home yet. What good memories I have of our time on Watkins Place and Barbara and her family were a big part of them. My sympathies to all of the family.

Barbara was such a great mom in our neighborhood. I must have knocked on her kitchen door a thousand times looking for Jeff, and she always happily let me in. I had the inside of her house memorized when I was a boy. She made Frederick Drive and Watkins Place such a great spot to grow up. She was a blessing to all who knew her. Prayers to Randy, Karen, Jeff and all the family during this difficult time. May the Lord bless and keep you all in His comfort.
