LaDonna & Gail....I am so sorry to hear about your Mom.  I just heard the news from my mom this morning, she thought she had already told me.  

I loved your Mom (and your Dad) so very much and they had been such a huge part of my life.  I got to spend about 2 hours with Barbara the last time I came in for a visit and I am so happy I got that time with her.  She even went with me to visit my mother in the nursing home.
I have such warm and loving memories of her and I will remember her kindness and sweet soft voice.  I'm happy to know that she went peacefully.  My sincere sympathy for your loss.

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your dear loved one. Take comfort in knowing that our heavenly Creator will soon remove all pain, sorrow, and death forever! May this promise as recorded in Revelation 21:3,4 be of comfort to you as you gain the strength and inner peace to cope with the days ahead. Philippians 4:13.
