    Tim & Robin, We are so sad to hear about Barbara Jean’s passing. She was a good neighbor. Emma and Chloe just loved her little dogs! They always wanted to stop in to see them. Your lives will be so different without her in them, but know that God loved her & she is now with Him & that God loves you & will see you through your “missing her”. Our prayers are with you & your family.

    Deepest sympathies to Tim , Robin and family. Barbara Jean was such a lovely and pleasant lady. I always enjoyed spending time with her over the years when opportunities to meet occurred- usually family weddings and funerals. She was a lifelong friend to cousins Joan Martin, living in Michigan- Joan and her sister Clara Jane are saddened by Barbara Jean’s death, and will contact you separately. . We all send loving thoughts and prayers for you .
