I just posted on the funeral home site. I'm so sorry Barb is not with us. She asked me, not too long ago, for the directions to the Whirley Popper popcorn popper. I sent them and she responded with a happy "thank you."

My heart is with her and her family.

I just left my note to the family. Barb was such an encouragement to me while I was going through my health concerns and I considered her a very close friend. I will miss her very much as I know we all will. I will go now and have my little cry and say a prayer for all those she left behind.
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/caffeine-free and loving it!

Oh my. I'm in shock. I really don't know what to say except for how very sorry I am for the family. She was a great woman who was very well loved by us all. She will be greatly missed. I'll be crying as I light a candle for her.

How could anyone be offended. Indeed, I echo your words. Barb L. was a valued friend. I expect there is great rejoicing where she is now. She is with those she loved who went before her. There is a great reunion. We will all be there someday. I only hope that we live our lives as graciously as did Barb.

Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear of Barb's passing. I just left my message for her family in the hopes it will give them some comfort knowing how much their mother is loved and how far reaching her kindness and warmth was. I don't know how old her grandchildren are but my heart goes out to them, too, as well as her children. It will be a rough Christmas for them.

Thank you for letting us know. I am so sad. Barb was a wonderful person. We had hoped to visit her while on our trip, but they were on vacation in their RV as we were going through her town. She will definitely be missed.

I am sorry to hear this. May the lord be with her and her family in this time.

Please accept my condolences.

One difference between a cook and a chef is that the cook mows the lawn, while the bread is rising.
