  1. May each of you find courage to face tomorrow as you rest in the knowledge that we truly care about each of your needs and that we will be here to walk beside you in your journey of grief.

    Eddie Beagles and the staff of Legacy Cremation & Funeral Services

  2. When someone gives so much to others, to make a life better, to make someone smile, to ease someone’s pain, and does it without fail throughout their whole life, it is special. A gift. She was a blessing to the world, and meant the world to so many of us. She was a shining light and example, and her family carries that onward for future generations.
    The sadness of her passing will last a long time, but the smiles, love and memories that she provided us all will never pass. God bless her, forever and always.

    With deepest sympathy for your loss, we send our prayers and love.

  4. Barbara was a member of the Mudsock Quilters Guild and we have missed seeing her smiling face at our meetings. She will be remembered as a good friend with a lovely spirit.
