Butch, Tonya, Rockie and Fallon, We are still so shocked and sad about Barb's passing. She is greatly missed in our little neighborhood already. I was just 21 years old when we became neighbors, and 20 years later, I can say she made me laugh more then I could ever count. She told it like it was. She loved her music and was outside 90% of the summer. This year, for the first time, she cut me a bunch of her dahlias and I made a vase, and I couldn't believe she cut her flowers, she LOVED her flowers. I took the job of watering them very serious when she went away, because she would be devastated if I killed them, haha! She had to have at least 40 containers planted each summer, haha! We have passed plants back and forth for many years. I will miss the "LEE" she would scream across the yard for me to come over. We will continue to think about you and hope the memories you have, will help you smile during these difficult times. Leandra, Timmy, Zack, Gabby and Lucca

Barbara was such a fun, outgoing and wonderful friend. We had so many good times with gardening adventures, lunches and just great conversations. Barbara left us way, way too soon and is so dearly missed. My deepest sympathy to Barbara's family.
