I lost my dear friend Barb.
Her visitation and funeral was today. I made the trip to Taylorville to pay my respects to her family and make my goodbyes to her.
Dad came over from Pana and met me at the funeral home. He and Mom knew Barb almost as long as I did - -
I can't help but think of all the "mischief" she and I would get into . . . she was such a character, and we would laugh and giggle like lunatic schoolgirls. All those years ago - -
It's amazing - - after all Steve and I have been through with the ice storm, and fighting with AmerenIP and State Farm . . . here it is, almost Christmas, and her husband has lost his wife of over 30 years, and her 3 daughters have lost their mom.
Really puts it all into perspective.
Goodbye, my dear friend Barb. I love you, and will miss you. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
