  1. Barbara Lucas was one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She was so wonderful with her daughter Kellie & her grandchildren. She will really be missed!!

  2. Bobbi was the perfect “Southern Belle” full of grace and charm. Her friendly smile will forever be remembered. I first met a stranger that became a wonderful FRIEND! Heaven is brighter with her angel wings but I shall miss her. I thank God for the beautiful memories she left with me!

  3. I worked with Barbara at Gray and Gilliland for several years. I have been so blessed to call her friend. Her work ethics were immeasurable, always fair to everyone, loved hey grandchildren more than she would ever be able to explain!! Our happiest moments were talking about our grandchildren. I will miss you Babs more than you will ever know. I know her children were the light of her life. The only comfort I have now is you are in gods arms and have no pain. But I wished we could have one more talk about our kids!! Love you Barbara and miss you terribly

  4. Barbara and I lived next door to each other for several years. We were the best of friends and enjoyed many a coffee and cookouts, and parties together. Our kids played together. We lost touch over the years but I did run into her about 4 years ago and we laughed and laughed about old times. I live in Leesburg, VA and I see that her son and family live in Alexandria, VA a short distance. Kevin, his wife, and family live in Leesburg, Va as well and Kevin works at USA Today at Tysons Corner. Kellie I remember so well as a youngster. On behalf of Kevin and I, please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your Mom. She was a great lady and I will always cherish the memories we shared.

  5. I made Barb look beautiful for many years. Beauty did come from the inside in her case. I have been stylist and friend for over 25 years. I will miss her laugh and kindness.

  6. My sis Barbara (Bobbi) was a kind and sweet person. She was like a mother to the younger siblings after our mother died at an early age in 1955. Along with other siblings and a son we had the honor of being with her as she took her final breaths.

  7. Our sons Brad Stevens an Craig Stevens were child hood friends of Shawns an spent many happy days in this home an golf at Mystery Valley. May God hold Barbara’s family close, feeling His presence an the warm glow of His face. In Jesus Name

  8. Barbra and I met at Gray & Gilliland back in 1996 and we became friends immediately. She was extremely supportive when Robert and I decided to adopted our boys and even baby sat for us claiming my children were her adoptive grandchildren until she had her own. What a joy when she had her own grandchildren and the love that she had for her familyun surpassed. I don’t believe that I have ever met a more open and loving person who touch so many people lives. I will miss her humor and gift of friendship for as long as I have the ability to remember. God bless Barbara and keep her in your loving arms. Herbie Lanoux

  9. We are so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort continue to be with you and your family during this difficult time. We all look forward to a better future when death will be no more-Rev 21:4. Our prayers are with you.
