  1. Mrs. Terese Taylor - Lee says:

    Sending my heartfelt condolences to my sister & brother Theresa & Kenneth & the entire family. I have many memories of Barbara from when I was a young teenager. One thing for certain is that she adored Theresa, Kenny, Shyanne, Kenny Jr, Shaniece, Paris (and now all of their children) Earth has no sorrows that heaven can’t heal.
    Theresa & Kenny I humbly pray that our heavenly Father decends his angels of love & strength and to keep you surrounded by them during this difficult time. Please know that I will keep you uplifted in prayer in the days, weeks & years to come.
    Theresa you have exemplified what love is… Since I can remember when I was a little girl you always made sure Aunt Barbara was o.k. I’m sure that she’s smiling down on you and I know that you have devine Favor with the Lord. Be proud in that.
    Again, please accept my heartfelt condolences
