My grandmother is loved by many as she loved them as well. She was a special lady, and though it's been a long time since I've seen her my memories are as fresh as yesterday's.
She is now back with her true love, hand and hand with granddaddy, enjoying the sights of God's kingdom.

Our lives are so much richer because of Miss Barbara. Luke loved being in her AWANA class and will always cherish Mr. John's hat. Miss Barbara is happy and healthy now and we praise the Lord for that.
