Eunice, Clint and family: I am so sorry for your loss. May the Lord grant Barbara eternal rest and the joy of being in HIS presence.
Barb & I have been friends for well over 20years & I am going to miss our fun times together. We loved to crack jokes at each other & laugh, oh how we laughed!! Also shared the most intimate sides of our lives with each other, She cried on my shoulder & I hers. Life will not be the same with out my best Friend to make me laugh & cry with me through rough times. My kids all called her Aunt Barb & our hearts are breaking, but we know she is in Gods special hands & she will have pain no more. I love you my dear Friend Barb & will miss you sorely!!
“Aunt” Babs will be remembered by me as one of my “FUN” Aunts! She always had a contagious smile and warm heart.
As a believer in post life – I know that Aunt Babs is in a better place now and expect that she now has found true happiness that she always was seeking.
Dear Eunice, I was so sorry to hear of your loss. You, Ciint and the children will be in my prayers and in my heart.
Eunice and family, so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to lose a brother or sister and cannot imagine being without them.
