Not sure what to say?

I miss you, plain and simple!!! I miss your great advice, encouragement and the sound of your voice. I think of you so often - when I see a beautiful rose in my garden, a butterfly and even a ladybug. You were funny and courageous but always a lady. Truly one of a kind. You are always in my heart. Thanks for looking over all of us as Im sure you are. Love you always, Kiddo.

I haven't seen Barbara in many many years since we have moved to Colorado and I no longer work for John. But I can say Barbara was one of the classiest, composed and smartest ladies I knew - I truly looked up to her. She was oh so fun and funny, never easily offended, gracious and kind. I remember we had John and Barbara over for dinner. We had so much fun. After dinner Barbara and I sat on the fireplace hearth talking and suddenly Barbara jumped up and we found that the beautiful ribbons...

The year was 1954 and I was the new girl in that fourth grade class in Waynesville, Mo. Barbara came up and took my hand and introduced me to everyone as her new friend. She made sure I was okay that day and never let go of my hand for 60 plus years. She was a rock of good advice, judgemnet incouragement and kindness. Her strong faith in God's plan for our lives was always a source of strenth for me and all those around her. I will miss the sound of her voice on the other end of the phone...

John, as a kid growing up with Ogden and Barbs, I was the brat. I was always bugging them and in their stuff, but saw Barbs as the shining one so bubbly and full of life. I know no words can help the hurt, just know we are hurting with you and your family, and our prayers are for peace in your hearts. Bards affected us all deeply. I know she is alright now and soon her memories will put smiles on our faces and wipe away the tears. We love you and your family.

So very sorry to hear of your loss. I didn't know Barabara that well, but I did see her dance, and she was so beautiful. What an inspiration she is to so many. May you find comfort in the love of family and friends and all her memories. I'm sure she is dancing in heaven.
