Memories Timeline


  1. My thoughts and prayers are with you my cousins Eileen and Denise and family members. Aunt Barbara was the most beautiful and welcoming aunt that anyone could wish for. I have wonderful memories of her warm comfort, sensitive, nurturing care for all cousins and family. I’m happy to know she had awesome years in Florida too! I do believe she is right now she is having numerous meetups with numerous family members, special friends and listening to some awesome humor from her husband, my Uncle Eddie.
    Sending peace, blessings and comfort,
