Gibb . . . .I am truly sorry for your loss. My prayers and thoughts will be with you and your children during this time. May God’s grace be with you all.
GIBB, AND FAMILY, WE ARE SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. BARBARA WAS SUCH A TERRIFIC LADY. OUR THOUGHTS ARE WITH YOU.
I am sorry for the family’s loss. The passing of someone you love can be a very hard thing to deal with. Perhaps you can find consolation in the promise of the resurrection mentioned in the Bible at 1 Corinthians 15:21, 22.
I remember Barbara fondly from our days at Triadelphia High, Class of ’57. My sympathies to her family.
Kelly and Rodd,
Please except our sincere condolences.
Known that you’re in our thoughts and prayers.
Kenny & Pam Warble
My sincere condolences to the entire family of Barbara. Denny Albaugh
