    Aunt Barbara will always be remembered for her infectious smile & warm heart. Although gone from the earthly realm, I pray she is now at peace & comfort with the Almighty. Prayers for peace & grace as the family navigates this time, may you still find joy in your hearts when sharing memories of her beautiful life.

    I will always keep Ms. Barabara (Nanny) in my heart. I knew her for only a short time but learned very quickly that she was something special, with her sweet smile, kind eyes, and sass that I adored! Sending lots of love and prayers to her sweet family from myself and the rest of 4 west.
