Sorry for your loss

Posted by Dave williams on July 25, 2022

It was with sadness that I heard of Barbara's passing. I knew her since grade school at St. Mary's. I remember sitting on the front porch on Main Street with her and her. Throughout life on returning to Dickson City for visits we would run into each other. Barbara was and is a beautiful soul. Kind, loving sweet and spoke ill of no one. I pray that Jesus has welcomed his daughter home. I will have Mass offered for her at the beautiful and devout church I attend here in Virginia. May God give her fulness of life in His kingdom.

Ann, Ami, Jonathon, Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your dear mother. She was a great person and a good friend, we went to grade school together and we were good buddies then. It is sad that we lost touch and parted ways when we both went to different high schools but she will always be remembered in a positive way.
