Barbara was such a sweet silly lady. I met her because my mom was a care giver and told me to try it so I did. She liked me right off the bat. She was more so watching me. She sat on the couch next to me and on the back porch. If I got up she had to know where I was going. She made me cry one night I spent the night she came back a md took goofy pictures with me and was being really silly making faces playing. Then she hugged me and told me that she loved me. Xoxo I will never forget talking with her on the side of her house. I told her everything. I will always miss you. Love always jen xoxox

I had the pleasure of being one of Barbara's caregivers. Even though she had alzheimer's she was one of the sweetest lady's I've known. Barbara had a beautiful sense of humor and there were times that I wasn't sure if she was serious or playing. When she saw that I wasn't sure she would laugh. I will truly miss her and her family, friends and caregivers have truly lost a unique gem.
