Dear Sena family,:
We remember Barbara as that beautiful, caring person who brought a smile and encouragement to everyone she met. God used her compassionate and generous spirit to lighten the hearts of many people of all ages. The beautiful photo in her obituary exemplifies the love of life she and Pastor Fabian exuded and that they shared with everyone. She will be greatly missed, but will be lovingly remembered by so many. We praise our Heavenly Father for allowing us to know her. We thank Him that we know where she is, and that we will see her again - as His Holy Scriptures say, "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord". We send our heartfelt condolences and remember you all in our prayers. Horace and Kathleen Ross
