I loved Barbara Moore. She always had an encouraging word to share and always found a way to connect with each person she met. She was amazing at remembering names, and could even remember the name of my dog! She just had a way of brightening my day every time I saw her. I will miss her dearly and remember her fondly always.

I had the pleasure not only to get to know Mr’s. Barbara but to do her hair also. I will deeply miss our Thursdays talks about the old days and her wonderful children. She was an outstanding woman. Much love to the family.
