Lynn, Ryan, Stephen, and family: My thoughts are with you, Barbara had a wonderful long life. She was very kind and loved you all so much. I'm sure her hubby Joe along with their daughter ANN were waiting in heaven for her, which should bring you comfort. Mary, Pat, Lynn, auntie Nata and myself miss our weekly brunches, Saturdays at Burger King sitting around chatting and laughing at just about everything. We all will remember the kindness she showed to everyone she knew. God Bless you Barb, thanks for the memories. ??????
