MEMORIES & CONDOLENCES
Barb was awesome!! What a strong and determined woman she was. I am fortunate to have met her in my lifetime. She is foremost in my thoughts today because I am making a picture board in her honor to hang in our Moose Lodge. The photos are from the day that we all wore "PINK FOR BARB". It was a joyous day spent with her and the photos are priceless. Barbie is with us every "Bobble Head Friday" in the form of her beloved "Moe" bobble. We loved her greatly, and we miss her more.

We are so sorry in hearing about Barb. She and Herb had the best stories. They always made us laugh. The light of the world got a little dimmer with her passing.
