CALDWELL -- In Loving Memory Barbara J. Caldwell September 17, 1951 - February 26, 2005 Three years ago, the Lord took you away. So many changes have happened to our family, and no one will ever be the same. You were such a strong woman, the perfect wife, mom, nana, and friend, the heart of our family. Why did your life have to end? Your husband, Johnny Jr., misses you so much and tries to stay strong. It's hard for him to have you gone. Your daughters, Andrea and Cyndi, lost their best friend since you've been gone. They hurt so much but are strong women just like their mom. Your grandchildren that you cherished so much are growing up so fast. You'd be proud, Vincente and Amanda had a baby boy (Vincente, Jr.) You're a great-grandma now. Victor, Pamela, Emmanuel, Franky Jr., Makkayla, and Anthony miss you so much, always saying how they miss their nana's gentle touch. 'Til our time on earth is through and we all reunite at heaven's gates, remember we love and miss you! Watch over us. Love, Your Family
