  2. Dear Ron,David ,Kim and all family and friends,
    Barbara will certainly be missed. I got to know the Goodnight’s and Weiss family when moving to Edmond in 1975 .I appreciated them when we worked together years ago in the nursery. Her Mother was also sweet ladies that influenced me over the years. My deepest sympathy goes out to each of you.
    You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
    With Love
