So very sorry for your loss. She was a lovely lady. I knew her through her niece and my best friend Fontaine Trainum Lilly.

Pre COVID My dog Riley and I enjoyed our visits with “Miss Barbara” while she was at Chesapeake Place. When Riley saw her, she would leap onto her lap and they shared special times with each other.
