My heartfelt condolences to the entire family. Barb was a strong woman and I had the privilege of knowing her for a very long time. She will be missed but I know she is in a better place where she no longer has to battle the things of this earth.

So sorry to hear of Barb's passing but know she is back with Arnold. She fought a long hard battle and never complained. She always had a smile on her face and hug if you needed it. We will truly miss her but God has welcomed her home with joy.
