My heart was saddened when I read Barbara's name in the obituaries. I first met Barbara in the middle aisle front rows of St. Bernadette's 8AM Sunday mass many years. I admired Barbara's many fine qualities that enabled her to do jobs of honor and trustworthiness for the church. When my Dad, Henny Hemphill, needed some extra care Barbara came once a week to take him out to lunch and for a drive around South Jersey. They traded many stories of their youth and visited some of Henny' s favorite Egg Harbor City landmarks. Barbara was a fine lady and I will miss shaking hands and offering peace to her. To her family I offer my condolences.
