My condolences to Barbara Ann's friends and family. I know this must be a difficult time for you all. Remember you can always turn to God for help. David said of God," When anxieties overwhelmed me, You comforted and soothed me" ( Psalm 94:19 ). One way he gives us comfort is through his word, the Bible. For example, at Isaiah 25:8, God promises to "swallow up death forever" and "wipe away the tears from all faces". I hope this brings you a measure of solace in your time of grief.

I am saddened by the passing of cousin Barbara Ann. What I loved and will always remember about her is the pitch of her voice, there was no way you weren't going to hear what she was saying and her matter of fact demeanor, she said about whatever popped into her head!! I will always remember the last two visits with her, when she and my mother hugged and cried at seeing each other. Even though they both suffered with dementia, the recognition was genuine and affectionate. May you all find comfort in the wonderful and full life she led.

Aunt Bobbie's devotion to her family showed everyday in the way she lived her life. Her home was always open and welcoming. Sharing a meal or card game in her kitchen brings back special memories. She felt blessed when surrounded by those she loved. Her brothers and sister, along with her beloved children, grandchildren and great-grand children always held a special place in her heart. She will always be remembered for her kindness, loving smile and family stories. May she rest in peace in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Ronnie & Chris Allen
