Not sure what to say?

My condolences to the familly. I remember Ms. Barber from her store and the patience she had with us as kids. Her store was one of my fondest memories of growing up in Morganton. God truly has an Angel in His presence now.

Though I only knew Ms. Barber for a short time, I had come to care about her very much. She was a very special lady. I will always remember Ms. Barber and will treasure the memories. God bless her and her family and friends.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

I remember Mrs. Barber, when as a child I attended piano lessons nearby, and my mother enjoyed stopping in at Mrs. Barber's store. Her picture is just as I remember her. My sincerest condolences to the family.

Ms. Barber was a fixture at my church when I was growing up. She cared so much for missions and for children. She made an impact on many people's lives and I know her family and friends will miss her.

This sweet little lady will never be forgotten...growing up,i saw her pretty much on a daily basis,at her little store,she always had a smile and kind word.She and my grandmother(wilma lanning)were lifetime friends.My thoughts and prayers to all who knew and loved her.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

Ms. Barber will be greatly missed in the Morganton Community. I know that Ms. Sara had a part in bringing me to Christ as a young man. She was always proudly doing the work God laid out for her.
Thank you Ms. Sara for all you did for me in my growing years.
