We are sorry for your loss. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers . Barbara was a very nice person . We will miss her calling the store to try to find Buddy, so she could get him to bring her a coke or ice cream home .

Almost every memory I have with Barbara makes me laugh. Most people wouldn't believe some of the things she and my Mother would get into during a one hour lunch break. The most memorable time when Barbara's pet bird died in the middle of the night. Barbara broke down during their lunch hour and while my mom was consoling her. My mother told her she would come over right after work to help her bury the bird. Barbara looked at my mom and sobbingly told her, "it's okay Joan, no rush - I put him in the freezer."
I'm glad to have so many wonderful memories with her.
