My beautiful sister. She has always been an inspiration to me my entire life. She has always been so strong. Never a negative thing to say and always a smile on her face. She always told me to take time to smell the flowers. Through her trials with cancer, she and I would thank Jesus for her strength. She was thankful for each day. I can't say enough about her. My life will never be the same without my best friend. Growing up with her and then becoming best friends as we grew older - my memories are beautiful and I will never forget how we laughed each Saturday as we would have our weekly phone call. God bless you Barbara. I will see you again some day and then we will laugh again. I love you with all my heart.
