. I thought the world of Bob and she will be forever remembered for her beautiful laugh and all of the pretty jewelry she loved to wear. The many times I would go with my Mama, Jackie Buchanan, to the beauty shop for Bob to style her hair or just to sit and talk to catch up on the news, was always happy times for us. We were a close family and often got together for holiday dinners at my Mama's house especially the 4th of July for a cook out and fireworks. I will miss Bob dearly but know that she is in a better place and having a wonderful reunion with my Mama and hers as well. My prayers go out to Jeff, Rachael, Freda and Jerry. May you find comfort at this time and the days ahead knowing Bob is with the Angel's.

So sorry for the loss of your loved one. Barbara was one of a kind, one of the best friends I have ever had. She was to the point, put on no airs, & never got over excited. We had some of the best times in our younger days, just wish I had been closer so I could have visited her. She loved Jeff & Freida with all her heart & I know you all will miss her daily. Respectfully, Linda "Sutton" Beagles
