    Buddy and Family Received a call from cousin Marilyn Stroud about Barbara's passing. As difficult as this time is for you and your family, take comfort that she is at peace in a better place. As a result of surgery and rehab I am grounded for the short term and home based. My sincere sympathy to you all. Take care, Kevin Elsden

    Our long friendship began when you were 5 years old & I was 6 years old. Our adventure walks began along with days at the pool in the Summer & listening to my transistor radio on my front steps. The East End Union for day trips & Girlscouts. Our first trip to Rockport for a week. Driving to Canada. You meeting Buddy at my Wedding & Many trips to follow as we grew older. So many more memories too numerous to list. You have been the most amazing friend anyone could ask for. I have been truly blessed to have had you in my life. So wish that we had more time for more adventures. Be at peace now. I love you & will miss you tremendously, "Turt". You are forever in my heart. Wanda.
