Auntie Barb, as I look at this beautiful picture of you that is posted, I also look back at the picture of you that I have posted on my refrigerator that was taken 12 years ago when you visited with my sisters and I here in Florida. Even though we were many miles apart you were always close in my heart. I will greatly miss hearing your voice over the phone but am comforted in knowing that you are now healed on the other side and no longer suffering with the illnesses that you faced here on earth. I am sure that there was great rejoicing as you were reunited with your family in heaven even though there was great sorrow felt in losing you here on earth. My memories of you will always warm my heart until we meet again my dear Auntie Barb. My love and condolences go out to Kim, Chad and Cassandra for the loss of your loving Mom and Grandmother.With love, Cherle

I will miss you Auntie Barb. You were always positive and always there for everyone. xo


My Dear Auntie Barb, Not sure where to begin as my heart is broken...23 years ago when I lost my Mom, you took her place as my confidant and friend. I would pick up the phone and tell you everything. You knew things about me that I shared with no others. You would patiently listen and then share your wisdom, advice and love. Often you would turn my tears to laughter! Oh how I loved your laugh, it sounded just like Auntie Anne’s. You were my only link to the wonderful women that my Nana raised and oh how I miss my Mom. You shared family history and recipes with me. In so many ways you filled the shoes of Mom. You often said I reminded you a lot of yourself which was a great compliment!! You were a beautiful woman with a kind heart and soul who loved her family. . All the phone call memories that my kids had with you will last a lifetime. . We will do our best to carry on the legacy of family, love and kindness. Many times you told me you were afraid to die… and I said don’t be, our Lord and your whole family will be waiting for you with open arms, and death is part of life. The loved ones you have left behind will be fine as we are a strong breed. I take comfort in knowing you are no longer in pain, whole again and reunited with our loved ones. I know you and the rest of our guardian angels will watch over us and perhaps sneak in a visit or two! Rest in peace my dear sweet Aunt. You will be truly missed but never forgotten. So long for now…until we meet again. Love you lots and always, xxoo Colleen Lou Anne

Auntie Barb, Words can not express how much I miss you already. What a beautiful picture Kim has posted of you. I will miss our telephone conversations each month. You knew how much I loved you because I always told you every time that we spoke. You always treated me like I was one of your daughters and you know that I considered you to be a second mother to me. You were always there to listen to me when I needed a friend, give me sound advise, make me laugh and sometimes cry. At the end of all of our telephone conversations, you would tell me how much you loved me and throw me hugs and kisses. I will always hold you near and dear in my heart, and will never forget all of my wonderful memories of you. I know that this past year was a challange for you due to various health reasons. You always stayed positive and never gave up hope. My condolences and love to Kim, Chad, Cassondra, Logon and Leon. Goodbye, until we see each other again. XXX000 All of my love always, Carrie L. Bonney
