  1. It’s been a long time, but I still have warm memories of both your mom and dad. We were lucky to have the Kunz family as next-door neighbors.

  2. Aunt Barbara was a very gracious elegant lady and a wonderful Aunt. Her lovely smile and gentle manner encouraged us as children and blessed us as adults. Most of all we recall her abiding love for her husband Bill and her sons and their families.

  3. Barbara’s legacy is the beautiful family she nurtured and left behind for now. You are in our thoughts and prayers now, as always. Love, Barbara & Ira

  4. It was always a special treat when Uncle Bill and Aunt Barbara traveled up from MD to see us in Lyndon! I have lots of wonderful memories – my favorite is that she would sneak a face at me without Uncle Bill knowing and it was just between us! I can still hear her deep laugh and see the twinkle in her eyes. Much love to all of you! Liza
