Barbara and I meet the first time she came to Basehor UMC. We became quick friends over making a scarf. She was a beautiful person and I am so glad she came into my life. She made a beautiful quilt for me and through the years she has given me her homemade hand cream, lace angels and crosses bookmarks
Last year she gave me a beautiful baby doll, she made a lot of dolls and it was amazing to see part of her collection

I will always remember our talks and times we shared. You are missed. Love you Barbara and as Nancy said "till we meet again"
