    How sad. We all drifted apart when my family and I moved back to Wyoming. Still, I never forgot all the Forberts, and Barbara was always the heart, I thought, of the Beaumont M&I Office. She sure helped me when I first got there, bless her soul.

    And bless you too Rachel. I still apologize for screwing up your going away party for me. You and your Mom will always be in my heart!

    To Barbara’s family: Your mother was a lovely lady. I enjoyed getting to know her during the years that she was in Beaumont. She was very devoted to the Temple and the Sisterhood. I was sad to see today that she has passed away.
