    I was a neighbor of Barb’s and learning of her passing really saddens me. We talked about flowers, weather, and puppy dogs, every spring, summer, and fall over the fence between our yards. I will truly miss her. Barb’s kindness, strength, and faith will always be an inspiration to me. She has left an enduring legacy in her children and grandchildren. Rest in peace my neighborly friend.
