Barb and family I am so sorry I was not aware of Barb's passing. I just sent your Christmas card and when it was returned I was shocked to hear of Barb's passing.

Rest in peace Barb and may they have darts in heaven.

I had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Barb being a member of Good Shepherd and shared experience with Lutheran Mission Women's League. This group initiated a 'secret sister' activity and I became Barb's secret sister where she sent a monthly greeting card...these I have kept since 2014... they were thoughtful and appreciated. Her Easter card read: "Life is so vibrant in everything around us at springtime, and because of Jesus, all that is within us rejoices too, He has given us peace through hope...forgiveness through love ... and eternity through sacrifice. May His peace and love bring celebration and joy to your heart at Easter and all through the year. May these thoughts also comfort you in your loss.
