Our thoughts and prayers go out to you for the loss of your mother and grandmother. We enjoyed Barb and Karl very much, going to dinner and playing cards. Even meeting them in Florida. We can be sure she is pain free and has joined Karl in heaven.

So many treasured memories of Barb and Karl and the three boys in their younger years.

We had such good times together and though we were the ones to move out fo the area we still kept in touch and tried to stop for a visit each time in the Findlay area. True friends through happy and difficult times.

Praying the family will be comforted by the gift of love from these two wonderful persons.

My deepest sympathy to you all on the loss of a very special lady. From our teenage years together at First Church in Toledo, I have so many wonderful memories of Barb ( and some stories I promised never to tell!). She had such a big heart & caring, giving spirit. I will always remember her with a smile. God Bless.
