Though we didn’t see one another except at Family Reunions or, occasions such as this, I knew she loved me, and she knew I loved her. We never let it go unsaid . Barbara my beautiful, thoughtful, sweet cousin, will be missed greatly by her family, and all the Lawson clan. She’s with our loved ones, those that as she, have left us to soon. We grieve our loss, but we find comfort in knowing, she’s with the Father.

To our sweet niece
Those special memories of you will always bring a smile.
If only we could sit and talk again about your grandkids and your chicken dumplings like we did on July 2020. That was the last time I gave you hug.
Rest In Peace until we meet again. ❤️

So sorry to hear of Barbara’s passing !! She was one of my late wife Janet’s cousins that we always held dear to our hearts !! A wonderful lady and an amazing cook !! I remember Janet would prank call her at the restaurant to see what she was cooking and ask about the daily menu specials, then place an order for delivery to Alaska, lol !! Barbara always got a kick out of that !! She will be missed dearly !! Rest In Peace !! 🕊💕💐🙏✝️🙏💐💕🕊

The most selfless, caring, putting everyone else first.. The STRONGEST Woman I knew I was PROUD to call my MOM..She loved my brother and I with all she had, she worked hard her whole life to make sure we had what we needed..She loved her grandsons with her whole heart and soul..She always made sure we all was taken care of. Words cannot even begin to describe how I am feeling and how I will go on without her here. I know my mom isn’t hurting any longer and she is looking upon her Heavenly Father’s face. I LOVE YOU MOM! Love, YOUR BABY GIRL! 💜
