Memories Timeline


  1. Aunt Barbara became my aunt when I married Tony Record (her nephew)! She accepted and loved me just as she did Tony! She was a great aunt to our girls! They love her so much! She became a great great aunt to our grandchildren. Thankfully she got to meet Coltin, Wendellyn, and Lincoln. The plan was for her to meet little Miss Renley! I know in my heart when Tony and I called to tell her that Renley was here she was so thrilled and couldn’t wait to meet her. I’d like to think she’s watching over us just as Tony’s Mom, Dad, and Mamaw Marie (aka Dorothy) are. We certainly have some great memories! Roy Lee, Mark, and family, we’re thinking of and praying for you all! Aunt Barbara will be missed! We are blessed that this sweet lady was a part of our lives! Love you all! Love, Tony, Joy, and family!
