She was the best Mother, Grandmother, Aunt and Friend and we were blessed to have her as ours. She was the sweetest soul on earth and now in Heaven. Her Love and smile will be in our hearts forever. “Me and Mom were and always will be…Two Peas in a Pod” She was our Pretty, itty bitty Barb and so much more.

Hugs, kisses and so much Love to you always and forever.
