To the family of Barbara Wright, I worked with Barbara for many years at JFC. She was a big part of our company, keeping us organized and in line. She was a great lady and is remembered fondly by the few of us still around from that time. I actually knew Barbara before she starting working at JFC, she and Dutch rented a small trailer house from me out at Reliance. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Andy Shauers

Our condolences to Barb's family. She was a pleasure at work and we enjoyed our times with her and Dutch. Some of our best memories were visiting and hunting with them. We will always remember Barb for her quick wit and warm friendship. Terry and Barb Sell
