    To Wally, Mark and family, Sister Barbara was a true blessing to me and my family. I will always cherish her in my heart for the true woman of God that she was. Her life truly reflected our Lord Jesus Christ. And her works will surely follow her. Be encouraged and strengthened and comforted through God’s peace and love until we all meet again on the other side. Isaiah 41:10.
