    I was a classmate of Barbara's and also lost contact after GRADUATION. We reunited at a SPHS reunion, and she had not changed at all. Still beautiful inside and out. Tommy you may not remember me. We went to R.A.'s at Highland Baptist church with Ned Roberts and others. So sorry for the loss of Barbara, and pray you are doing well.

    Barbara and I were classmates from the 1st grade thru the 12. We lost contact after high school, about 50 years later we saw each other again at one of our class reunions and stayed in touch since then. rest peacefully barbara
