I’m very sorry for your loss. Words cant describe how you're feeling, nor will they completely take the pain away. Here are some comforting words. No matter what God sees the pain you’re experiencing.

1 Peter 5:7
Throw all your anxiety on [God], because he cares for you.

I used to work with Barbara at Dr Casillas's office. I gave her bridal shower when she married Wayne. I loved her very much. She will be missed. My love goes out to the family.

Barb my beautiful niece and friend. As children we grew up together and made a lot of memories. The most memorable ones are when you lived in Superior and we snuck out of the house and walking to the A&W when you lived in AJ. I will miss you Barb. Rest well beautiful Angel. Oh and give Brian a hug for me❤️🌹 I love you. Love, Terry

Barbara was my neice but more like a sister. Growing up, some of my most fondest memories had her in them, and there were many! Her infectious personality and beautiful smile was something to be admired, which I will miss very much. Love you, Barb. Until another day...
