    Barbara was such an inspiration! Her love for God and her family ran deep in her soul. Her and Ray just celebrated their 60th Anniversary. The love that they had for each other was immeasurable. The closeness between her and Lorraine was something that all mothers and daughters strive for. To know that she will be reunited with their son Dwayne warms my heart, she missed him so much and grieved for him.
    She was talented in so many ways. Her pretty little hands created the most beautiful quilts, and needlework and yet her hands were so strong. She enjoyed working in the yard as long as there were no snakes around. Her yard was always beautiful.
    Her heart was as big as her smile! She always had a kind word and genuine love for friends and strangers alike.
    We have been so blessed to have her and Ray for neighbors. They are family to us and we love them both.
    I believe that Barbara will remain alive in all of us through memories of her and how knowing her made us all better people. I believe that the gates of heaven were swung open wide for her where her Savior and her son Dwayne greeted her! She can now watch over her beloved Husband Ray and Daughter Lorraine. She is our angel.
    Thank you Barbara for all you gave to us and this world. Rest in peace. We love you.
