So sad to hear of Barbara's passing. We taught 2nd grade at JES across the hall from each other for several years before she retired. (And I enjoyed teaching at Asbury, many years ago, with E.C. and hearing about Barbara and the family). I appreciated Barbara's warm smile and her ease and whit at any complications during a typical school day! My thoughts and prayers are with you.
My sincere condolences my friend, so sorry to hear the news, may God speak a Word of Comfort and Peace into your heart today and the coming days, Love to you.
Barbara was such a kind and caring person! She and Nancy Manis always added laughter and enjoyment to life. She was an outstanding educator. Caring thoughts go to E. C. and family.
E.C., I am so sorry about the loss of your wife. I will keep you in my prayers as you go through this difficult time.
Barbara and I taught second grade together at Jonesborough Elementary. And what a joy that was. She was so creative, inspiring, organized and just plain fun!!! I feel blessed to have known her. My love and prayers to E.C. and the rest of her family.
