I worked with Barb at McDonalds back in the day.
She was always very nice to me and she always worked the drive thru. Every time I went through she still remembered me after 20 years. My condolences to her family. I will always remember Barb as a hard worker and a little grumpy at times… Lol. But thats what we loved about her. We were FAMILY at McDonald’s and I will never forget those moments. Rest in peace Barb. God bless.
