    I have great memories of Aunt Barbara. We were at her house a lot. I remembered when we would play downstairs with an big old radio and pretend we were on the radio talking behind it. Remember playing hide and seek in back yard where the grass was tall. She was a fun special lady. Prayers go to all her family.
