My deepest thoughts and prayers goes out to the family. I didn't know Barbara Harlien very well but heard a lot of great stories about her from her daughter Mechele. I have known Mechele for a long time and we met online and in person in the year 2009. I was so sad to hear the loss of Barbara. May God bless the family through this hard time of loss.

RIP Momma I Love You with all of my heart and soul. You will be greatly missed. Thank you so very much for being my Momma. You were the best Momma. I will forever think of you in my memories, and in my heart. I know that one day I will join you on "The Other Side" and we will walk together again and make more memories together again in Heaven. I leave to you Momma these words: -God looked around His garden And He found an empty place He then looked down upon the earth And saw your precious face He put His arms around you And lifted you to rest; God's Garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain He knew you'd never ever Get well on earth again. So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered "Peace be thine" Then He took you up to Heaven With Hands so gentle and kind. It broke my heart to lose you But you did not go alone, For part of me went with you The day God welcomed you home.- Goodbye Momma I Love You. Your daughter forever and always, Mechele Denise Harlien
