Sympathies in your sad loss from your friends in Ireland.
What an amazing little lady she was. She was a grandma that most would only dream of having. I watched her walk into The George kids’ games with lunches, dinners and all the snacks they could ever need. She was so proud of them and to be there. Joanna has made sure her last days were the best they could be. She’s at peace and pain free now and I hope the family finds comfort in that.
Sad to hear this. She was everyone’s baseball grandma. Please give Grandpa George a hug from me. ?
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Aunt Barbara was always a joy to be around. I fondly remember her cooking skills & her sweet smile. The family always was her focus. I’ve had happy memories every time I thought of Aunt Barbara. Thank you for a life well lived.
Barbara was a special person who had wings a long time ago. She has been an angel for her husband, her children, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Look for the butterflies, because like angels, they too have wings. She will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her, she is watching over all now.
Mark, Joanna and the George Family, I am so very sorry. I will be thinking of you and praying for your family. Joanna please reach out if you need anything at all! xoxoxo Tara
