Terry & Family,

Barbara was such a wonderful person and will be missed. I remember riding together to the football games and having such fun eating out. You both always treated my son, Chris, just like he was yours and you always took such good care of him. Chris always enjoyed being at your house and admired and thought of Barbara as his Mom too. I am so saddened by her passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Terry and Family:

We were so saddened to hear of Barbara's passing. I met her about two years ago at our Associational District Prayer Meetings. She never missed a meeting except when she was having appointments at the Cancer Center. Barbara always had such a sweet smile on her face and had a true sweet spirit. It wasn't hard to love her and she will be greatly missed. God Bless you all with Loving Tender care.

Terry, Angie & T.J.,
I was so sad yesterday when Peyton told me about Barbara's passing.
She was such a sweet, kind lady. I met Barbara when my son Peyton was in the Greene County Extension Office. She was so nice to him. He always
told me what a wonderful secretary she was. I enjoyed seeing her & talking with her when I stopped by the Greene County Office and at the Junior Rodeo & 4-H events each year! I will always remember her sweet smile.
You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
