Just want to say what little I got to know her and saw her. She was a wonderful person and heart. From a distance my heart grieves. The only hope that we have is in our Lord Jesus Christ. Barbara he will be missed by many what a wonderful person holding back the tears. I can remember in Bible study. when I saw you and said to you. If you need it Barbara I would give you half of Tacey hair. Want a glory and love GOD's children have . For each other. You will be missed, even by those that saw you for a small season. To our wonderful family and our Lord. Danny and Tacey.For now in our hope in our Lord for a season.

My dearest cousin and friend, I will miss you...but only for a while...till we meet again to be together forever! Love you...Millie.

As we say our final goodbyes today, my heart will be both broken and rejoicing. Broken because I will miss you and all the good times we shared together. Rejoicing because you have gone home to a much better place with our Lord. My prayers go out for your family and I will try to continue your prayers for them.

I haven't been around Aunt Barb in many years, but it breaks my heart to hear of her passing. She was such a great person, and so much fun. I always loved staying at Aunt Barb's house when I was a kid... Cocoa gravy in the morning and garage selling right after. I will miss you, thank you so much for being such a bright spot on my child hood. I will never forget you, and I will be telling my kids about how amazing you were tonight. I wish they could have met you! They would have loved you as much as I do.

I'm so sorry for your loss Uncle Dwayne, she was truly the best!

Finest person anyone could ever meet. Thankfully I got to work with her as a Phellps Dodge distributor.

I worked with Barb for several years before she retired from Vera Bradley. She always had a quick smile and positive attitude that was infectious to those around her. Barb loved talking about her family and her travels with her beloved husband.
She is free from sickness and pain and in the arms of Jesus, so we celebrate her life and her step from this life into Heaven. Praying for the family as they say their goodbyes, for now.

I'm so sorry to hear of this. Barb was such a great coworker. She was good at what she did and she had more love for APICS that anyone I know. Barb and I ate lunch together frequently and she always spoke fondly of her mother, husband and grandchildren. She was a true lady and I'm blessed to have known her.

My heart goes out to all of Barb's family and friends. I worked with Barb at Vera Bradley and she was one of the most compassionate, caring and genuine individuals I have ever met. It breaks my heart that she leaves us so soon. She was a diamond among us.
