To love and to be loved is our greatest gift and in those regards you have been truly blessed.My thoughts and prayers are for the comfort of those left behind.

I was blessed to work with Lillian at JCPenny. She was so kind to a newlywed who had no friends or family in this town. She taught me a lot of skills and I enjoyed knowing her. I lost track of her over the years as my children grew and I changed jobs but she touched my life and I will remember her fondly.

My favorite memory of my grandma barron was thesmell of her making my brother and I pancakes on saturday morning. She hardly ate them. She would look at, my grandpa and say, ” dad do you want ice tea or coffee?” He always wanted both and she knew it but would always ask. I love every memory I have but that is my very favorite.
