    Barbara was a great friend for years and I have many, many beautiful memories of times spent together. There was no one like her nor will there ever be -

    She brought such light into the room and always had something to say! We are blessed to have had time with her through Torch and HRBC - her wit, knowledge and humor were an integral part of her personality, as was her love and devotion to Richard.

    Barbara was a 'breath of fresh air' and it was always a treat to spend time with her. Her humor will be missed but not forgotten, case in point is the comment in her obituary about the upcoming election. George and Susan, you are in our thoughts.

    Hi my name is Kayla and I am a local bible teacher. I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. There is a very comforting scripture at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can all look forward to a time when death will be no more. I hope that this scripture can bring some true comfort during these difficult times.
