You were always warm and inviting. I’m truly blessed to experience the importance of love for your family through Kim, Kelley and your grandchildren. Thank you for including my family in that same circle. I will miss our occasional text exchanges. God bless you and I miss you.

Barb, you were such a wonderful, sweet and feisty soul and I so loved getting to visit with you and Nick in Dryden. I always loved your sense of humor--it was the best. But even better was your big heart and I'm so thankful Mom (& Dad) had you as not just family but the dearest of friends. ♥️

The first time I got to meet GiGi was Easter Sunday of 2023, I was greeted with the warmest hug. She was no doubt one of the sweetest and kindest grandmothers I've ever met. It was an honor to meet her and spend time with on the holidays and will be greatly missed.
Love you GiGi

Barb was complete kindness and love. Her greatest joy was to love and be loved in return.
May Barb see her savior face to face and hear those blessed words “well done good and faithful servant”.
