My sister, Brenda Lewis, shared a room with Mrs. Barrett prior to her illness. She always had a beautiful smile and bright beautiful eyes whenever we visited. Brenda got to see her the week before she passed and was hopeful she would return to once more share their room. She was the best roommate for her and she is and will be greatly missed.
