My heart goes out to you Dave at this horrible time of loss. I didn't know her long, but she was a very friendly lady that truly loved every minute she could spend with her fellow Tearjerker family. I'm so glad Bob and I were able to see her one last time at the Ohio gathering this summer. We missed both of you at CRA, and will continue to miss Barb, but we expect to see you again at another gathering when you're ready. Take care, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

My heart is truly saddened. Our first gathering of any kind was crossroads 2011 and Barb took my wife and I in as her own. Showed Viki how to work a Dutch oven gave her a recipe book. we camped often with Dave and Barb between gatherings and got to see her one last time here in Ohio where she made dutch oven lasagna. And it was the best. She was a great lady and will be missed.

Dave our prayers be with you.

I am so sorry, and my sympathies go out to Dave, and to all the Indiana teardroppers. We met Barb and Dave on their maiden voyage at Whitewater State Park several years ago, and I very much enjoyed some long and humor-filled talks with Barb. Our paths crossed again at the first CRA. She and I really hit it off, and I am so sorry to hear of her passing. :(

Thank you, Dave. Your son did a wonderful job. I hope to see you camping again. Next week at Potato Creek?

To the others who knew Barb.....Kleenex would come in handy......but, it sure was nice seeing Barb again, if only in pictures.

Damn that's hard to watch. I am setting here at my desk at work with wet cheeks. I will miss her picking at me. God that must be tough for you to watch but it was a very beautiful effort on Aaron's part. Something to always treasure in quiet moments.

Verna & Bob are right, it is truly a beautiful memorial of your beautiful wife. Aaron did a wonderful job of putting it together and I know it will be something your entire family & friends that loved Barb will cherish for years to come.

Dave we sure haven't forgotten about you and hoping you are coping as well as can be expected. Hope to see you at another gathering as soon as you feel up to joining us again. Take care of yourself.
