Barb was one amazing lady. Brian and I kind of adopted her as our own "grandma" when we asked her to be a big part of our special day there was no hesitation and she became a notary to preform our wedding ceremony. She was much more than a family friend to us. We will miss her dearly as I'm sure you all will. Our thoughts are with you.
