I've been doing Miss Barbara's hair for a few years now. And I have come to love her. I've worked with her at Walmart for about 20 years and enjoyed it. My prayers for the families of Miss Barbara . They too have become a joy in my life. So Thank you for sharing her with me.

I will miss Barbara so much. We lived side by side as newly weds. Her daughter and my son were born a month apart. We stayed in touch over the years. Rest in peace, Barbara. I'm praying for your family

My heart is saddened for my friend leaving us Just ways to soon. She was so sweet and one of the best friends ever. No matter how bad she felt I never heard her complain. That was just the way she was. She would tell me, " This to shall pass" will miss you my friend. Prayers for the family.
