    I loved this lady! She use to come into the dealership I worked at. I helped her maintain her car. I remember one time some company sold her a warranty for the car and made her believe it was Chrysler. I don’t remember what her car needed but it was something that most warranties would have covered but of course not this one. I gave the company the what for on taking advantage of a single older lady and how they miss led her. By the time the conversation was over they paid for the repairs which was more than she paid for the warranty. Barbara was so happy when I went out and told her. I said Barbara the next time someone tries to sell you something like this, bring me their info first so we can see if it legit. She had such a sweet smile. I’ve really missed seeing her over the last few years. God rest her soul and I pray for healing for the family after loosing someone so special!
