Memories Timeline


  1. I will really miss seeing Barbara every day at WGC. She always had a smile and she loved when I brought my dogs in for a visit. She asked me nearly everyday – “how’s my boys?” Rest In Peace Barb, it won’t be the same without you ♥️

  2. Maryanne- I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your lovely aunt. Prayers for you and your entire family. Sincerely, Darla Osaba
