Don, Kevin and Keith,

I am holding you in my thoughts. You must miss your wife and mother terribly. She was an incredible person whose goodness impacted so many. I looked up to her even when she was a young woman and I was a teenager. She was always an inspiration to me.

My aunt is to me the greatest person in this world, one of a kind and one in a million.

Shes had the biggest heart with the most caring touch, which she shares with so many.

Her soul is made of pure love, yet she's worth way more than gold.

In my eyes, she will always be, the most beautiful person to walk the earth.

To me she's was the smartest woman I knew, and it truly did show.

There is no one that compares to her, no one that even comes close.

I appreciate all the advise she has given me, I take it in with immense gratitude.

The memories I will forver cherish, for they are priceless.

For all she has done, I will forever be thankful, and my love for her only grows more than she will ever know.

Having her apart of my life is the greatest gift of all, being in her presence is God's blessing to me.

Looking deep inside of her, I saw that strong, wise woman I hope to become.

Giving, helpful, loving, caring, and kind, is what defines her.

She is not only my favorite Aunt but she is my role model, and to be like her, would be my only wish.

I miss you Aunt Barb, Love Renee

Don, Kevin And Keith, When I look at the beautiful picture of Barb, it takes my breath away to think of her being gone physically out of her families realm. Our family was fortunate to share Keith when he married our daughter Julie. Barb mothered two good men Kevin and Keith. It has been our joy to see Barb be a second mother to Julie.
Barb and I shared worries and concerns periodically many times concerning the care of our mothers who both suffered from altzheimers and always health scares with grandchildren.She was never malicious. or hard hearted. She always turned things into a positive and loving thought.
I hope each of you find the peace that I find in the fact that Jesus knew her name tuesday morning.

Don and Sue Dian
