"Little Barb so enjoyed coming out to the farm, flying in the airplane with dad (Uncle Chalon ) and sharing stories with my mother (Barb). Little Barb was one of the most happy and caring people I have met. She was a treasure to know and have as a cousin. Blessings to Jim and the family. Love, Sandy (Maulding) & Dana Sauer"

"Barbara Allan was my mother-in-law. She was the best mother-in-law ever... I am thankful she was more than I ever expected her to be! She offered comfort and guidance when I needed it, she laughed at all my jokes, she let me... be me, she always showed me unconditional love. Sincerely, David Sandoval Mom and Dad were in love for 62 years... 5 years dating... and 57 years married. Bonnie and I loved that "they stayed in love" until the very end, and we hope to do the same. "

"My Mom was so precious and we loved each other dearly! I will miss her special smile and the kind joy that shown in her eyes as she enjoyed all the simple moments in life with all those that she loved most! My dear sweet Mom was "the fun one" for being so sick during her life. She enjoyed inner-tubing in the snow with us even when the tube took a bump and she along with my Dad ended up face first in the snow...she came up laughing and smiling. I love that! I'm so thankful that the Lord placed me in her arms and care! I am thankful for all she gave to me...a tender touch, the gift of time, the love of coloring and watercolor painting, patient love that endures all things, acceptance of the hard and difficult challenges that came her way always choosing to make the best of it. Most of all I am thankful for her steadfast perseverance to love and obey the Lord and to study His Word!!! One of her Life verses from the Bible is found in Psalms 119:165, which says, "Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing shall offend them." KJV Mom, You are in the best place the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Hugs & Kisses...I will see you soon! Love Always, Bonnie Allan Sandoval She loved to color and make snowflakes with us for our Christmas tree "
