    Barbara, Pancreatic Cancer Victim

    I just lost my beautiful wife Barbara on 6/13/14. She was everything to me as well as many others. She was popular, well loved and well respected by everyone. Me and my kids are simply crushed.

    Throughout the best medical care available, a good support system from our legion of friends, she lost the fight. If prayers alone worked, she would have been saved. Gone but will never be forgotten.
