To the family of Barb,
May the peace that comes from the memories of love shared comfort you now and in the days ahead.
Please accept my most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. My thoughts and prayerS are with you and your family during this difficult time.
I worked with Barb at Fort Lyon and at the VA Pueblo Nursing Home. I will always remember and cherish her positive attitude and awesome sense of humor. She will be missed by all who knew her. God Bless

I've known you since I was a young girl. You have always opened your door to me no matter what. I enjoyed our conversations and keeping up with Tracy, Stace, Josh and all the little ones while I cut your hair. Thank you for leaving your legacy of kindness and love every time we talked. I love you and I will miss you!!
Until we meet again in Heaven~

Barb I will always remember what a happy person you where. We had a million laughs. You was there for me when my husband got killed in a car accident. You always gave with your whole heart.

Your girls where always your life, everything you did after they was born was what you thought was best for your children.You had to make some hard decisions but you did

Where do I begin? I was your first grandbaby. We have so many memories from our short time together. From you popping my toes, cooking egg drop soup together, staying up all night watching lifetime movies, me always trying to steal your fluffy pillow when I crawled into bed with you at night, and you always calling Matt your boyfriend and saying you would steal him from me. You always knew how to make me laugh. I remember the time

Tracy, Stacy, and Josh,

I have to echo what Vanissa said. I haven't been around your mom in a long time, but memories of her will remain captured in all of our hearts. She was like an angel always there to help each of us with anything. I have many memories of her cooking, letting me spend so many hours at your house, and driving us out to the country to visit your grandma. She cared for all of your friends

Trace, Stace & Josh.. you know its funny the kind of things you remember & dont remember.. But I do remember alot about your Mom. I remember how hard she worked to provide for you 2 Girls and then later Josh. I remember almost always going to your house & staying the night and hearing that VERY loud alarm going up and everyone sleeping thru it but me. I remember when she told you Girls she was expecting Josh ...
