Dear Randy, Monica, Travis and Family- Barb will be so sincerely missed. I spent 2 hours with her every 5-6 weeks (as her hair dresser.) She shared so many stories with me about all of you. I have never met a more loyal, loving or devoted woman. Her love of family was compelling. I can only imagine what a profound loss you all are experiencing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all through this incredibly difficult time.

Barbara was a beautiful lady and a beautiful person. I was always so happy when I would learn she had been assigned to serve as our gifted teacher in Argonia. She was a true professional and I was always proud to work with her. God Bless both of you.

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your beautiful wife, mother, grandmother. She was one of the most honest, sweet, caring persons I ever had the honor of knowing. She loved and spoke often of her family. The pride, the glow when she would share "special" things about her family.....I knew exactly where her heart was. Each of you were her world. Somehow I know she'll never be very far away. Because a big piece of her will carry on thru each of you. Heaven gained an amazing Angel.
