  2. Jim and family, I am so sorry to hear of Barb’s passing. Knowing her, she put up one heck of a fight against her disease. I have so many memories of her, that I could probably write a book. Sitting in front of the Queens Hotel drinking her cough medicine out of a brown paper bag (didn’t that look good), holding up the walls at Mewata so the building wouldn’t fall down. Driving the “get-a-way” car when we got kicked out of the Legion. But no matter what we all got into, Barb never, ever used bad language, and always acted as a lady. Wearing her winter white suit to Octoberfest and getting beer and mustard all over it. We had great fun and great memories. You will miss her as sorely as I miss Allen. Our lives have changed and all we can do is go forward. I like to think that Allen will be glad to see her up there and they will watch over us all. Take care, keep in touch.

    Jim and family,

    Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time in the loss of such a vibrant woman in your lives, your wife, mother and grandmother. It truly was an honor to share with you and Barb, your renewal of your wedding vows just a few short weeks ago . . . my heart is saddened, yet I am very honored knowing that we will come together again to celebrate her life with your family.

    “Your Mother”
    Your Mother is always with you.
    She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street.
    She’s the smell of certain foods you remember,
    Flowers you pick and perfume that she wore.
    She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well.
    She’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day.
    She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep,
    The colors of a rainbow.
    She is Christmas morning.

    Your Mother lives inside your laughter.
    And she’s crystallized in every tear drop.
    She’s the place you came from, your first home.
    She’s the map you follow with every step you take.
    She’s your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy.
    Nothing on earth can separate you.
    Not time, not space … Not even death!

    Warmest Regards,
    Jacqueline Hoare
