Jim, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

So sorry for your loss and the loss of an excellent neighbor. Always a wave and a smile whenever she saw me in the yard as she was passing by. She was actually one of the first people I met when I moved onto our street, not as a neighbor but professionally when I was transferring my insurance policies. She told me we were neighbors and asked if I wanted flood insurance. I replied, do you have it? She said no, so I said neither will I. Then we both laughed about it. May you all find peace while reflecting on the memories of her life.

Jim and family;
Please accept my deepest simpathies and prayers for you and your family. I enjoyed the brief time that I spent with you and Barb. The dinners, card games and motorcycle rides.

Barbara and I have been friends since Jr. High School and I am going to miss her so very much! I am going to miss her beautiful smile and laughter. Along with her funny sense of humor. I have some great memories of the two of us that i will cherish forever. With a few of them bringing a big smile to my face. Barb, you will be missed by so many people. I feel honored and blessed to have been your friend! I will be seeing you again one day. Rest in peace beautiful lady. God's blessings, grace and peace to Jim and your family during this difficult time. Love, Vicki King
