    I never had the opportunity to meet Miss Barbara, but I am so grateful to be a part of her daughter’s life. As you sleep, Miss Barbara, I will continue to be the best mentor possible to Nicole. Rest until I meet you in heaven.

    I worked with Barbara at Brentwood Elementary in Fayetteville, NC for many years. She was a very kind soul. I know she’s entered the pearly gates and is a peace with her Lord🙏
