Messages of Condolence

  1. Barbara would not want us to mourn her passing, but rather celebrate the moments we had with her. Remember her with laughter as she has accepted into the ever after. Her light is not extinguished, only her body has been relinquished.


  2. Such a warm hearted and loving person. I will cherish many memories, but will never forget her kindness and generosity toward Joe and Greer when it came down to selling her condo.
    Let us all laugh, smile, hug or just do something nice for someone in her memory.
    Jerry, May you find peace during this difficult time.

  3. Jerry I am so sorry for your loss. I’ve known Barb since the 70’s and she has always been a great friend, I will miss her dearly

  4. One of the sweetest, most fun-loving people I’ve ever known. Her famous line, “I’m always afraid they’re having fun without me,” will resonate forever since her celebration of life will never end.

  5. Getting to know Barb was fun. We soon found common ground like laughing together at my dads quirks and things that make him Jerry. Sharing a beer, going shopping and opening her home to me and meeting her friends are just a few of her endearing moments I will always remember.. she was loved and will be missed.


  6. Jerry, my condolences to you and the family. It’s been many years since I have seen Barb but I will remember her as so fun-loving and welcoming. And her giggle was the best.


  7. Bearing the loss of Barbara may seem insurmountable, but in your grief remember her love for you, her affection and compassion and all the little memories that truly made a life time for you and her. That will be your salvation and the golden threads that hold your heart together that is breaking so! Until you join her once again in the loving arms and Glory of Jesus Christ may Peace of the Lord be with you.
