I am so very sorry to hear of Barbs passing. I worked with her at Loos Pharmacy for many years. She was so much fun. She was a sweet lady who loved her children and her Grandchildren so much. She will be missed. My prayers to all of her family.

Barb was one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She was so much fun to be around and you could not help be happy when you were with her. Her greatest love was her family. Her children and grandchildren were her greatest joys. God has gained another angel and she is with Jay again but her passing leaves a big hole in a lot of lives.
