Barbara was the best !!! Her infectious smile and personality set her apart . She and my mom were on one of the best bowling teams in Idaho together. Greg and Teresa were high school friends to me and my brothers growing up . My sister in law was a caregiver for Barbara for many years. Rockland valley loss and heavens gain. Whenever I hear thunder I will think it is Barbara bowling a perfect game again together with my mom in heaven.
