The world is a little less gracious , now. Some of the warmth
and cordiality went away. Barb’s siblings, children, and
grandchildren are in or thoughts and prayers. We don’t need
to be there to know she will be sorely missed.

I am so sorry for the family's loss. Barb loved being with her grandkids and family. She was such a sincere and wonderful person. I so enjoyed her company. I can't believe she is gone. I don't know what to say but I am sure she is in Heaven watching over all of us.
