Earle, Kelli, Josh. and family, our deepest sympathy and thoughts are with you at this time. Barb was not only my aunt. but she became a sister to me, when she moved in with our family. We went through high school together, and had so many memories of good times together. .. Barb. I will miss you forever, and may you be surrounded by angels. I know my sweet grandfather was there to put His arms around you. and  welcome you to heaven.   We love you.  Bob and Carrie.
