    From my short time taking care of Barbara, I could tell she was an amazing woman. I wish I was able to write down the strawberry ice cream recipe she tell Jesse to make all the time. I surely miss Barb. My sincere condolences to the family.

    I grew up with my grandma, grandpa, and Pam living in the house in front of ours and they were the only family I grew up with. My grandma led me to God as a child I still remember going to service with her. I remember every thanksgiving we would have a huge dinner with our tiny family. And oh boy, Christmas time was the best at grandmas. Her Christmas tree would sit on a home built wooden box (that grandpa made) and on that box was her village. It always was so amazing as a child. And she LOVED her village we could look but NOT touch. She taught me many life lessons and taught me what family is. I remember in 08 when I moved to South Carolina and as the truck pulled out of her driveway I just started crying like a baby because I wasn’t sure if I would see her or grandpa again. But I moved home 8 months later and am so happy of the time I had with her and Pam. And now I have to remember that she is with Pam now and I know without a doubt she’s in heaven. I will truly cherish EVERY memory I had with you grandma you were an amazing woman and stood strong your whole life. I will miss our talks and stories you told me about where I came from and family I never met. I love and miss you more than words can explain. Xoxo

    Dear Aunt Barbara, I will miss talking with you on the phone and you’re funny funny stories. Your laugh was so contagious. I’ll miss you dearly and I am so thankful to the Lord that you have blessed our lives so much.

  • Chris Cowgill says:

    Aunt Barbara, you will be missed. I remember you coming into family Christian stores buying your books. We would laught and talk about the Lord. One day we will all see each other again.

  • Brandy hutchison says:

    I will miss grandma with all my heart, I still can’t believe she’s gone and want to call her. I’m so very grateful for the time I did get to spend with her in the last 2 years since me and my family live so far away. I will miss being able to call her up on the phone just to see how she’s doing and hear the funniest stories about something going on in her life or a story from her past. She was so talented and I’ll never forget the beautiful wedding cake she made for me years ago! She taught me so many things but my favorite thing was learning how to crochet so now I can carry on traditions of making baby blankets for my family. She was so loving and caring and there isn’t anything she wouldn’t do for anyone she is truly an angel of God’s and will forever be in my heart. Love you Grandma! Say hi to my Dad up there in heaven ♥️
