To Barbara’s Family,

Andy and I were saddened to hear of Barbara’s passing. We became friends when she worked at the Windflower. Andy and I enjoyed visiting with “the ladies” at the flower shop. Barbara was an asset to the business with her talents and kind ways. We missed them when the shop closed only to find her and Karen at Janine’s Flowers! So sorry for your loss.

With heartfelt sympathy,
