In lieu of flowers Barbara's family suggest making a donation to the Rock House Center for the Art, a charitable non-profit, for a mosaic bench and wall at The Rock House in Reeds Spring Mo.

Barbara loved the Rock House and while living in the Branson area attended just about every show over the course of 15th years. Along with her husband Ed (Big Daddy) Bair they made our concerts and pot-lucks all the more enjoyable. They supported the Arts and the Musicians that graced our stage. We would love to build a gorgeous piece of functional art, that everyone could enjoy, in her honor.

Your donation can be made on line... just write a note as to what it is for. Or you can write a check and send it to RHCA P.O. Box 33 Reeds Spring, MO. 65737
