Barbara was a great lady and a great friend. We worshipped with her at First Presbyterian in Cornelia and enjoyed square dancing with her in Clarkesville for several years. We will miss her beautiful smile and kind words.

Clete, You and all your family are in my prayers and thoughts. What a lovely person and devoted friend Barbara was. My memories of your mother include her smile, her obvious enjoyment of life, and the wonderful homemade cakes she baked. I regret that I couldn't attend her services.
