It was a pleasure knowing the family while Barbara was at Golden Living when I worked there from Janurary to September of last year. Barbara loved her family and the love you had for her especially Jim shined. May God's love surround you during this time. Know she is up there listening to Elvis singing to her and she is at peace.
