    May Barbara's memory not be forgotten. Weep with those who weep and laugh with those who laugh and hope in God's promise of a new day when sickness and death will cease and God will restore life to all who sleep, but who still exist in His memory. John 5:28, 29, Revelation 21:3, 4. My heartfelt sympathy for your loss.

    Barb and I were best friends from 6th grade through high school. We lost contact over the years but occasionally called each other. She was always fun-loving and adventurous. My deepest sympathy to her family .
