To Our Dear Friends and the family...Growing up on Washington Street was the greatest times of all. Our Moms and Dad's looked out for all of us kiddo's and I was always welcomed at the Barnum home with open arms and we ALWAYS remained good friends to this very day!! Babe always had a smile and a kind word when I saw her and truly made me feel like a part of the family. I will miss her but I know she is now with the Lord our Savior in heaven, and all her loved ones. God Bless and love you all, Laura, Larry, and Jennie.

To My Dear Barnum Cousins-Kathy, Peggy, Patty, and Roseanne and extended families. God Bless you all at this difficult time with Peace in your hearts, Strength and Much Love! You were blessed to have your Mother and her Love for so many wonderful years. May your memories of her fill your hearts. Aunt "Babe" Rest in Peace and Enjoy the Love and Beauty in Heaven with all your family. I hope this past Sunday you had one heck of an Italian feast and that you are able to make Dad smile when you bake him your famous Apple Sheet Cake. Many fond memories of Uncle Harold and you and our visits on Washington and Clinton street and all the family get togethers around the holidays and at weddings and family reunions. When you passed I rang my bell because I knew another Angel had earned her wings. Love You.~Kimmy

Grandma, I will always the cherish the memories that we were able to create on our "once a week" lunch and shopping dates. We sure did have fun, especially when Travis, Jr. liked to throw things from the tables at the restraurants and making you laugh so hard. Memories that won't be forgotten. I thank you for that. May you rest in peace and God bless your soul. I love you, Michele
