    I am so sorry to hear about Barb. She was one of the kindest and most compassionate people that I have ever had the privilege of knowing. She was always so incredibly supportive. We shared a lot of laughs together. She loved talking about her beautiful daughters and wonderful husband and, yes, the dogs. Heaven gained an angel. I love you, Barb.

    I was so lucky to meet Barb when I had her wonderful daughter Nicole in both kdg. & 1st grade. I was then lucky enough to get to work with her in my classroom when she came to work at our school. I’m so happy that I got to know her better. She was incredibly kind, understanding, compassionate, helpful, and all around fantastic. I loved being able to hear about her family (which are dear to my heart) and the Bon Jovi concerts she’d go to. It’s hard to know she’s gone, even though she’s no longer sick now. Thinking of all you during this tough time and sending you healing thoughts.

    Dear Sammi & family,
    We are sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom/Wife. May your memories bring you comfort during this time. Playing JV softball with Sammi at GCHS, seeing what a sweet family you all are, we can see Barb shining through all of you. Prayers for you all in the days ahead. Bre Albert & family

    Dear Sam and Nicole, and family:

    We are so sorry for your loss. I’m sure your mom was really special, and as kind and sweet as the two of you are. You really are some of the nicest girls we have ever played softball with, and that is a reflection of your wonderful mother and father. Your memories and love for your mother will always be with you, and help carry you through the difficult times ahead. Cherish your dad, he will help you through. Our thoughts are with you.

    I am so sad to hear of Barb’s passing. She is without a doubt one of the finest people I have ever known. She was wonderful at her job. She had a gentle spirit that put others at ease. She had a great sense of humor. We shared more than a few laughs. She was kind and understanding always willing to help others. But, what impressed me the most about Barb is that she always kept what was most important first and foremost. For Barb it was her family. She spoke so fondly and proudly of them. Having taught both of Barb’s daughters, and hearing of her husband I understand why she felt the way she did about them and loved them so. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
