Sis Barbara (as we affectionately called her) will certainly be missed. She served faithfully to Harvest Helping Hands as well as a member to the church. When we first met, I thought she was a mean lady but I learned rather quickly, she had a heart of gold. Rest on Sis Barbara. We won’t say, goodbye. We’ll just say good night, we’ll see you in the morning

Sister Barbara will definitely be missed. We were not related. However, we shared the same last name along with good conversations and laughs. Rest until we meet again.
