Barb and I were friends in high school. I have many memories playing in the band and singing in choir with her. Those we hold in our hearts never truly leave us. Barb will live on in the kindness she showed and the love she brought into our lives.

Our families grew up together in Norton. Beverly Schmitz Glass lives in Garden City KS. I remember her smiles and laughter, how fun she was, having fun with the Jacob girls too. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you. What a beautiful woman.
