“Barb was instrumental in bringing Evelyn and I together. She use to bring Ev over to my house so that we could spend some time together when we were kids and neither of us had a car. She was a very special person with a big heart. We pray that she is at peace. We will miss her. May God be with her family and grant them peace.”
