My friend Norma Goins and I wish to express our deepest sympathies to all of Barbara's family. We have seen her most Thursdays for the past several years when we volunteered to wheel patients down to the chapel at Good Sam's on Thursdays for the weekly hymn fest and sermon. Barbara always loved to go sing, and as I wheeled her down the hallway each time, I would sing one of my favorite hymns since communication between us was a challenge toward the end, and she would either sing or hum the tune. She especially loved my friend Norma and would light up like a Christmas tree whenever she was around. Barbara was a sweetheart, and we will miss her very much. Sincerely, Hilary Sikes
