To all of Barbara's children and Brian & Tara, Barbara was a long, long time friend in her years in Seekonk. We shared lots of good times together when our children were young. I will always remember the evenings that Barbara and I and some other young mothers spent together mending clothes, gossiping, laughing and solving the problems of the world. She was a neat lady and you were fortunate to have her as your Mom and Grandma. I know that you will miss her greatly but do share your memories of her with each other. It will give you great comfort.
Al and I send you all our deepest sympathy. Elaine Baker, Melbourne Village, Florida
