Maryann, Kevin, and Jim and family
My condolences to you and your family
The many memories you have of your mother will stay with you forever in your heart.
I have many memories of your mom when she and I worked at Maple Manor Nursing Home in the early nineties.
We became friends over those years. I will always remember her and the times that we shared at each others apartments over a cup of coffee or tea, this was when she lived at 5Lamers Court. We used to visit with your grandmother in Port Burwell, have coffee at the North Broadway donut shop after our 3-11 shifts at the Nursing Home, and if my memory serves me, I believe we even went to bingo a time or two. Your mom stayed on with the Nursing Home and I left to go back to school. Over the years I still would see her and have a short visit even though I don't believe she knew who I was, but when I told her my name, she would remember. Over all, my memories of Barb will be with me in my heart forever.
Barb is now in a better place and looking down with pride at the family that she so dearly loved.
