    Barbara was one of the sweetest peoplel have known. She was always there to help a friend. I am proud to have called Barbara a friend. She has helped me many times. She would watch my Daughter(Bridgett) while I worked. She was a great role model. She took in many friends and family if they need help. Barbara had a very big heart ♥️. I know we will all miss her.

    As a grown adult I realized with Barbara’s passing that I haven’t matured much in this area and I don’t do death well. I meet Barbara and her family in 1983 and they have been a part of my heart and my life ever since. Barbara and her sons accepted me in their life and she treated me as one of her own , even volunteering to be my legal guardian all so I could finish high school. From that moment my life changed, I become a part of a family that, to this day, I consider my family and has showed me nothing but love and acceptance. Barbara was like my second mom and I loved her and she will be missed. Barbara, Mike and her sons Richard, Jerry, and Jimmy and her whole family’s love for me profoundly changed my life forever.
    Mike, Richard, Jerry, Jimmy and to the whole family my heart breaks for you all. All my love for such an incredible lady. I love you Barbara- Buster.
