Matt and Adrienne please know our hearts go out to both of you at this very hard time. I understand how you are feeling and trust me when I say there are good days. Jim, I was sad to see that such an important person in Barb’s life was left out of the posting, however I know how hard this must be for you and we are all here if you need us.

Dianna, I’m going to re-use a poem I saw because I couldn’t find words better than these to offer as comfort,
God saw Barbara was getting tired
A cure was not to be
So He put His arms around her
And whispered Barbara come Home to me.
I hope your family can find peace and comfort.
When I think of my Aunt Barb I will remember how quiet and laid back she was. I will remember when she gently took the stitches out of my leg when I was little and helped me settle into my first apartment. I will always remember the image of her walking up the driveway at my Grandpa’s with my Mom… an image that represents the bond between sisters and an image I hope to pass down to our family’s future generation of children while walking with my own sisters. To me, my Aunt Barb truely was a fine example of how to carry yourself through good times and bad. My thoughts and prayers go out to my cousins. You’re mother was a very special woman to a lot of people.
Barb, you will be forever missed by all! You will continue living through your children everyday. You will never be forgotten.
My prayers are with your family. I pray for them to remain strong and live the rest of there lives just as you would have wanted.
Thank you for being so brave. You are an inspiration to all.
My beloved sister. You will be incredibly missed and forever cherished. I love you, Barb.
Dianna, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Strong, kind, loving, fun, soft… these are words I think of when I think of my Aunt Barb. She was a talented individual whether it be knitting clothes for my Barbies, stitching my name in a towel, building corn hole games, remodeling the kitchen, or making trivets out of wine corks.
She was thoughtful of her com-workers and family. Her quiet strength was something I always admired, especially as she fought this battle with cancer. I know she is at peace now, enjoying her music, the sun, and the surf.
My deepest sympathies go out to all of the family. Love to you all. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
