We loved Barbara So. Her Smile that was always waiting for us every morning. With a " GOOD MORNING did you have a good night?" Always thanking us for are help. She would always notice in detail what we were wearing. always followed by a sweet comment. I would spend time talking about her hanging art work that would fill her room. I would every morning blow on her bird mobile to make the birds seem to fly in the wind. She would say how she loved that. I have so many memories of Barbara. I'm so thankful that her family brought her to us to love and care for. We miss her. I have a hard time going into her room. tears come to my eyes. I know she is so happy now and pain free. I love her family Joyce, Doug, Nancy, Sharon. We are so sorry for your loss. When ever you see a butterfly stop and watch she is there. She will always be close to you. again Love to you all xoxoxo

Our dear Aunt Barbara was always so kind and generous! I remember her beautiful garden in Bountiful and laughing with her while we ate her good white peaches. We are so sad to see her go but cherish our memories of many happy times together. We love you Aunt Barbara!
