She was a strong believer in Christ, and she relied on her faith in God Almighty to live and govern her life. She was also a sports fanatic, and her favorite team was the TN Titans (when they were playing well). She loved NCIS and Chicago PD so much that her idol TV star “Gibbs” recently sent her a flower arrangement with well wishes. Her world revolved around family and photos to always remember the good times. Barbara, Momma, Granny, you will surely be missed.
