Barbara was delightful and such a nice person. She always talked about her kids, making lefse, and taking care of flowers. I heard her banana bread was amazing! She is greatly missed.

When I was writing all of your names, I regret that I may have left out one of the names and am sorry for that. Of course I know that you are...Michael, Steven, David, Leslie, Tommy and Barbara. Love to you all. HazelBelle

You have all been in my thoughts so many times over the past few days with so many memories of taking care of you "kids" and spending time at "Cozy Acres". I have so many memories of your mother and I'm so glad that Bernell and I had a chance to see her when we were in Fargo this fall. She really did seem to enjoy the reminiscing of days gone by. I will miss Barbara and will always have very fond memories of my time with your family. Our love and sympathy to you...Michael, Steven, David, Leslie, Tommy and Bobbins. Bernell and HazelBelle.
