Elizabeth and I were so saddened to hear of Barbara's passing. Our memories are of a person who was always happy and enjoyed her life with her lifelong friend Barbara Donaldson. They were known as the "Two Barbara's" Now, one has gone on to glory with her Savior. Heaven is now welcoming Webby with open arms. Welcome home Webby, Thou good and faithful servant!!!
