Not only did Barbara care deeply for Jimmy and her family she extended her caring toward helping our veterans and active duty military. She was a friend who inspired me to never quite trying to help those in need. I will miss her greatly but know her spirit will always be there to guide me as I carry on her mission with veterans. May God go with Jimmy and her family, bring them peace each day as memories of Barbara remain to give strength to those she loved and still loves.

Barbara will be deeply missed by all, she was like a sister to me instead of our cousin. I admired her strength and courage to keep fighting CF. What an amazing lady and the love she showed for Jimmy and her family was so strong, She never put herself first was always ready to see how she could help her family. So glad they got to build their dream home!!!! I will never forget your kindness and love and how you welcomed me into the family! I love you Barb!!!! Love, Amy & Mike Thetford

She is a beautiful who will be with me in my heart. We were less than a year apart, and always close. She was more a sister than a cousin. I could always talkwith

So many great memories with sweet, caring and honest Barbara. Because of distance and life in general, we have not spent as much time together these past few years, but I still remember all the lunches and time spent together, especially long talks on the phone. Such a special person to all who knew you, all those memories will remain. You will not be forgotten; till we meet again, Betty and Tommy Robbins
