  1. I had the pleasure of working with Barb at the Holiday Inn South County Center. She was absolutely remarkable at her job – so professional, organized in her work, and always a very neat and proper appearance. Barb was definitely over qualified for her job and heaven only knows why she stayed except perhaps God sent her to keep us all in line. She was very quiet spoken, but ALWAYS gave the best advice when asked. I am so blessed to have had her in my life. My deepest condolences!

  2. Tim, it is said that when you look into your mother’s eyes, you get a glimpse of the face of God. My own mother passed away over 35 years ago and I still miss her Scottish sense of humour. You realise, I’m sure, that Barbara is singing with the angels in heaven, looking down on her favourite choir director and musician. Life on earth is but a fleeting instant, so, in gratitude, we make the most of the gifts that God has given us. That’s what Barbara did and that is what you do. After being gone for 35 years, my mother still brings a smile to my face. May your mother do the same for you.

  3. Tim, I’m so sorry that your mother has passed, but I remember how you spoke about her and how much she loved you and your sister. Remember she chose you to be her son. She loved you dearly and gave you your love of music. Continue to do your thing and know how happy she was with you and your accomplishments.

  4. Timmy and Rose, your mother was my second mother ! I love her as so. I appreciate all that she shared with us a children. I think her poise was her most charming characteristic!!
    Love, Wheezie / Tessa
