I became friends with Barbara at the time of the wedding of Michael and Candace and have been a friend on Facebook for years.

To my dear son-in-law, daughter who went to help in Barbara's final time here in earth, my grandchildren, Shay, Robbie and Barbara's other family members, may the Holy Spirit bring comfort to you all. Remembering God's faithfulness is evident more than ever in times of great grief, may you find comfort in that assurance. Cherish the good times with Barbara always. Vicky Foti.
