    What a wonderful friend!She was my mother-in-law first, and then she became my friend. She and I had alot in common, her grandchildren! She lived the Eastern Star motto, of charity and love. She was given the most wonderful care by her daughter, Pam and son, Lynn. They were there when she needed them giving her comfort and strength through this difficult time.Barb loved her family and in turn we returned her love she was”Fairest among thousands, altogether lovely”
