I am going to miss this beautiful lady that always had something good to say about everyone. Barb could play the organ and praise God thru her music on the keyboard like no other. Barb was amazing. We are ALL going to miss her.
lovingly remembered by Joni and friends at KEYBOARD WORLD. We all loved her so much !
