DeHaven, Barbara Luckett Wooldridge's Guestbook

I am heartbroken and will miss grandma very much. She lived such and amazing servant life and was a role model to all of us. I feel grateful to have been in town a couple of months ago and able to spend some time with her. Living in another state is hard and unfortunately, I cannot make it back for the service. I know it will be beautiful and honor her nicely. Even though I know I am a grandchild by marriage, she was the only grandmother I ever knew and I feel blessed to have had her in my life. Love you grandma.
