Barbara was a wonderful Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. She cherished times spent with her family. She enjoyed crafts and sewing. She would make dolls from old socks, all sewn by hand. Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free. I'm following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard him call, I turned away and left it all. Perhaps my time seemed all to brief, don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, HE SET ME FREE. UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN, YOU WILL BE IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER. WE LOVE YOU.
