Al, you and your family have our deepest sympathy. Barbara was a wonderful person. I didn't get to see her as the years went by, but I sure will remember all the wonderful times we had as teenagers, attending Johnstown High School. May God watch over you and your family in this trying time. Let him be your strength, lean on him.

My deepest condolences to Al, Erin, Marty, Maddy, Abby and Hadley. I didn't know Barb well, but I knew her to be a warm, kind, loving, and fun filled person. I also know how much you all loved her by the kind words you always used when you spoke of her. I know she'll be watching over you all with loving eyes. May God keep her in his arms, and bless your family.

Al and family....

What a wonderful, caring Barb I met over 50 years ago at a Sunday School conference in Johnstown. You and your family are so lucky to have her all these years to guide and love you. She will still do this from above. All these years we kept in contact through thick and thin... these memories will keep me going. Keep your strong faith and all your wonderful memories and bless you.......
