Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Ken and family,

    Barbara had a good heart and soul and was so pleasant every time I saw her. I’m grateful to her for providing a good home life for Mick all those years ago. The beautiful quilts she leaves behind will be enjoyed for years to come, long after she departs this earth. These creations she gifted to her family and friends are tokens of her love. Melanie still cherishes the ones she so lovingly made for Merit. She lead a good and fruitful life on this earth and will continue to live a glorious life in heaven.
    Much love going out to all of you❤️🙏
