I met Barbara in the summer of ‘81 when I was just 18. She was married to my Dad (John Craig), and even though my Dad died just 6 months later, we continued to keep in touch and over the years I got to know what a wonderful and special woman she was. She was kind, loving, adventurous, generous, and genuinely cared for others. And even though she was very private, there were times she did share her belief in God, so I look forward to seeing her again soon. I miss you and I love you Barbara.

I will miss you terribly my dear beloved BarbaMoma. I will miss your loving kindness toward me more than anything. You never forgot my birthday or our anniversary. I will never forget how you supported me when I went back to school. You knew I loved Starbucks and would send me gift cards so I could have my coffee on the way to school. You were very special to me and I love you so much! I look forward to the day when we can be together again in our eternal home with the Lord.
