I remember Barbra and John when I was a kid. Our families along with my Uncle Jim Stephens family having big cookouts, gathering and singing. She was a large part of our lives growing up. We even attended the same church. Blessed Hope way out in Va Beach. The bathroom was an outhouse way across the field.
Her love and compassion will be remembered forever. I love you Barbara and John. Truly showing for years what a godly woman and couple was.
