    Dear Bob and family,

    We were sorry to read of Barbar’s passing. I will always remember Bob and Barbara as one of my very favorite couples who purchased a home from me. As a couple
    you both showed your love for each other and family, the humor and joy that comes from being with the right person and a carrying for all you encountered.
    Barbara will be missed by so many of us who have been fortunate enough to be in her presence.
    Our thoughts are with Bob and family during this sad time.
    Donna and Rhodes Johnson
