    I met Barbara and David thru Davids brother Thomas Clinton Jr. In 2004 in St Stephen Sc. They welcomed me there and treated me like I was family. I have never met anybody as nice as them. When I heard about Barbaras illness and passing I was shocked and deeply saddened. What we all lost heaven gained. May Barbara find eternal peace in thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. Barbras kindness will never be forgotten.
