Cy and Judy Plunkett
So sorry we missed the services for Barbara. We didn't know about her passing until I read the Oblong Gem at the Oblong Library on Friday. We would have been there if we had known sooner. We plan to place a black ribbon on the antenna of "Miss B", the '65 Chrysler Convertible she sold Cy,for this years cruise-ins and car shows. We wish to honor her memory in this way.
Our Sincere Sympathy in your loss and our prayers are with you.

Barbara R. Kipple
God blessed us with your life. May you now live forever in His arms. I shall never forget you.

Jack(ie) E. Hills, Captain USAF Retired
Deepest sympathy to all of the family.
Unable to attend personally, I know my Brother Dave Leon Hills and Aunt Alice Hills-Minger of Terre Haute, IN, were there during the Visitation hours. Hamilton family genealogy has been our stongest connection but I do recall growing up with Larry and spending time with him at ISU.

A sympathy card has been sent to the family of Barbara Jean Moody c/o Pulliam Funeral Homes, PC.
