My heart goes out to the family of my dear friend. I left Sun City 5 years ago. We have talked on the phone every week since I left. I will miss our weekly talks. I cannot be there for her mass but you know I would have been there if I was able to come. My thoughts & love are with Barbara and her family on her birthday. How wonderful to celebrate her life on her special day. Love Judy

For over 77 years (grammar school until now) Barbara has been a dear friend and I will truly miss her. I am having a hard time knowing I will never be able to talk to her again. She will always be in my heart. Rest in peace my dear friend.

Condolences to my childhood friend’s family. Barb and I went to grammar school and high school together and we have been friends ever since. I will miss my friend and our monthly lunches.
