    I pray for comfort and healing with your loss. I received the news of Barbara just over 1/2 hour ago, otherwise I really would have wanted to attend her funeral. My memories of Barbara were her contagious smile, her great humor (she made me laugh a lot), and her pretty red hair. She was so sweet and I was so sad and shocked to hear she was gone. Love and God Bless to her and all the other families and friends that knew her.
