Pat, Jeff and Kayla there are no words of comfort that I can offer at such a time as this, but please know that as a community that knew and loved Miss Barbara we grieve with you. She had such a beautiful heart that's sadly so rare in today's world. We are all better for having known her. Again I'm so very sorry.
