Nanny, we all miss you so much. Anthony and Jack talk about it often. The loss of you is a void that will never be filled and will always be felt by all of us. We could all go for one of your hugs and sitting at your table eating Tasty-cakes with a cup of tea. You were an amazing woman and I will always love you bunches.

I had the pleasure of working with Barb for Occupational Therapy and was heartbroken to hear the news. She was such a sweet and caring soul! Although she had visual and memory impairments, she always recognized me when I would walk by, and remembered my 2 yr old son I would tell her about and ask about him each day! I will never forget Barb! I’m praying for her and her family. Glad to hear she’s in good hands with our Lord!May she eternally Rest In Peace!❤

To Barbara's Family,
I'm so sorry to hear that Barbara passed away. She was a wonderful woman. She always said Good Morning to me when I was leaving for work. She was a great neighbor when I lived at the apartments in Wind Gap. She was always smiling and happy. You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers. God has gained another Angel. RIP Barbara.
