Love you so much Mom <3. R.I.P.
To Eugene and the entire Smith family we are so sorry for your loss. Barb and Eugene were there to
lift the spirits of my father in-law Don Linton when he was battling his disease. We were and will always be grateful for their support. I always had to laugh when Barb, Eugene and Don would pull
playful pranks on each other and how funny she would be when telling us about them. It was always fun to see them and talk about pepper and our little dogs. In life you are lucky if you have a few good people you honestly respect and admire. Barb and Eugene are two of those people for us.
Our thoughts are with you in your time of grief.
Rod and Debbie Lester
