I am so sorry for your loss.
I was a classmate with Barbara at Crooksville High School
We remained friends , but lost contact after a few years.
I can honestly say, she was one of my best friends growing up. Shared a lot of laughs and had a lot of fun.
I hadn't seen her for years, but I never forgot her. Just lost contact.
My heart and prayers go out to each and everyone.
A life lost to soon! I will miss her but I will never forget her.
The only regret I have is, We never seen each other for many years!
God Bless and RIP my friend, Barbara.
God received another Angel
