Betty and Hall family,
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family at this time of sarrow. No matter how glad you are she is no longer in pain, it still hurts to let go. The comfort comes from knowing where true angels end up. And in times needed she will still be in your hearts. As she has left a little piece of her in each and everyone of you.

Memories are forever. I remember cousin Barbara and Bud during the good times of 1950's and 1960's.
To the family, death will come to all of us...we no not when, nor where, nor how. Barbara June just beat us there. She is at peace and has now joined those who went on before her. One day we too will be all be together again.

May the peace of our Lord be with you all.

You have my deepest sorrow in the lost of your mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
Barbara June and I were very close growing up. When my family moved to Ohio when I was 10, we still continued to get together with family. As time went on, we didn't have much communication. I did talk with her after Linda's death and had planned to get together. Just goes to say, one should never put things off and I deeply regret it.
I am sorry we will be unable to attend the funeral, but I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
Love to my cousin.
Shirley and Family
