I am Jared’s cousin. We now live in Fl so we were unable to attend the visitation or service. We met Barbara on several occasions from the wedding of Jennifer and Jared, family bbq’s and Jennifer’s baby shower when pregnant with Emily. We were very sorry to hear of her passing and the long road that lead to it. We send our condolences to the family.
