  1. Hands down, Barbara Riley was the best mother-in-law on the planet. Actually, she was more like a mother to me. I will miss our daily chats and our annual visits and her wit and sense of humor. I know she is now in the arms of her children, mom and dad and Scott. Love you mom!

  2. LOVE YOU AUNT BARB. MISS YOUR SMILES AND HUGS. YOU ARE A GREAT WOMAN. IT'S BEEN ROUGH, NOW YOU ARE PAIN FREE AND AT PEACE.
    LOVE YOU,
    EDDIE DIXON
