Mary Beth, I'm sorry to learn of your mom's passing but I'm positive she's in the gentle hands of The Man Upstairs. I looked forward to seeing she and Bob on my many trips to Vancrest to see my parents; they were always so upbeat! Know that you and your family are in the hearts of many at this time.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Barbara. I am sad I never had the opportunity to know her but have known her daughter, Mary Beth. I have heard many a times what an extraordinary woman her mom was, not only to her family but to so many she knew. Praying the Lord brings comfort to all during this difficult time. Marilyn Greco

I somehow can hear your mother saying what's all this fuss about as all the condolences roll in. But secretly she'll be amazed. She's joined with my best buddy Bob so now all is right with the world! I see them sitting in a comfy restaurant, Bob with a glass of Jack Daniels and Barbara with her gin and tonic, catching up on the past, Beverly and I will miss her but realize she was ready to let go. She had a remarkable life, raised a wonderful family and did a lot of good works. Not bad for a little Irish girl from Preble County!
