    Barbara was a dear friend from the time I started school in the early 50’s at Bath Mills One of my lasting memories was one day I rode my bike to school & my mother had told me not to let go of the handle bars but I of course being kid I was going down what we called Lincoln Hill going quite fast & let go of my handlebars needless to say I had a horrible spill & totaled my bike & was all up cut up.
    Barb took me too her house & gave me comfort before my mother arrived. She was always so kind. Every year until last year we exchanged Christmas cards. She will be sure missed she was a very kind & loving lady.

    Cindy, I’m sorry to hear the lost of your mother, as Larry and Bob. It was always a joy to run into her somewhere when she was able to get around. She was a great lady. May your memories ease your heart..

    So sorry for your loss of your mother. She was a great lady and friend of mom (Rose Wilcox) for years. She and mom were born a couple of days apart in the same year and Barb liked to remind mom that she was older.
