    I have fond memories of Barbara when she would come over and hang out with my sister Jean Fostvedt. We would “play” Sound of Music and Barbara was Maria. Good times in my memories of her. She’s having a heavenly reunion with her family and friends who passed before her.

    We had 60 years of laughter, tears, shenanigans, love, fun times and kept our humor and friendship through it all. I miss you my friend. Stay safe in the arms of Jesus until we meet again in Heaven. Forever my friend❤️

    I miss my sister everyday. Even though we lived states apart, I could call you anytime and always looked forward to our visits to Florida. You’ll always be in my heart.

    It seems like yesterday we moved into the neighborhood and our kids became best buddies. I know Mitch was there to welcome you home. Until we are all together again 💗

    Barb was one of the friendliest people I’ve ever met and a very genuine person! I’m so sorry to the family for her early passing! A life taken way to early!!!!

    An almost-lifetime of memories: Ron’s singing engagements, the CCFD, cruises, Christmas holidays and Super Bowls…watching our kids grow up. Precious memories, all the way back to our ‘younger years’. That’s what we will remember–all the make-us-smile moments! And there are so many…
    We promise to take care of our forever-friend Ron. Rest in peace.
