My prayers are with all of you at this time. Barbara was a delight to know. I’ll always cherish the time I spent with her. I have fond memories of her helping in our office and of the delicious treats she brought us. My favorites were her spinach quiche and plum cake. The plum cake only came once a year when the plums were available, so it was extra special. Mostly I will remember her kindness, thoughtfulness and her gentle spirit. May the angels come to greet her. Eternal rest grant to Barbara.
