I will miss barb. She was a very wonderful lady and i enjoyed taking care of her. I will miss her dearly. I would often tell her things i needed to do when i was off work. When i would return she would ask me if i got it done. She didnt talk alot but when she did i loved to hear her voice and her to be able to tell me things and ask me things. I especially loved when she would smile at me it would make my day to just see her smile once.

Kristen:  I'm so sorry to hear about your mother's passing.  You have my deepest sympathy.

Dear Todd and Family, 

Please accept our deepest condolences on the loss of your wife, mother, and grandmother.  We were very sorry to learn of Barb's health at the very end.  We remember her from our days back in the 70s.  I will never forget that our first house on 22nd Street NW was actually originally built by your Dad!  Sorry for your loss.  We have very fond memories of you and your children.  Please know that you all will be in our prayers.

Take care & God bless each and all,

Jim & Sue Stitz, Texas

Family and friends. I am so deeply sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you can find comfort during this difficult time when you read Acts 24:15 and Psalms 37:29.
