I will miss my long time friend. We have been friends since elementary school. Barbra was an independent lady. Loved her family and friends. Definitely had a green thumb. I shall miss all those gardening tips she shared over the years. She enjoyed laughing. Her dogs were indeed her best friends.
Barbara loved the Lord and will see her loved ones again.
