“When I was growing up, I spent a lot of time with Barbara in Nevada, IA. She loved to dance and had a boyfriend so they would go to the Sportsclub in Nevada to dance. She also loved jewelry and always had a purse with her. I visited her and her mother several times in AZ, then visited Barbara several times
after her mother passed away, but then lost track of her as she was moved to a different place and I could
never get it touch with or send any cards. I think she thought of me as a younger sister and I will miss her.
Am sorry that I had to miss her service, but this is the first time(3/10/19) that I've had any information about 166her service or even seeing her obituary.”
