What a beautiful soul this world has lost! I can smile because I knew and loved you, and that I know you’re now resting in Jesus! I, too, had the privilege of basically growing up with and loving and being genuinely loved by your whole family! The laughter and, yes some tears, will forever be part of who I am. I truly believe you knew, Ms. Barbara, how I felt about you all. Your laughter and kindness will always remain in my most precious memories. May you Rest In Peace. Love you always, Belinda
