    Please accept our heartfelt condolences on the passing of your mother.
    My name is Elizabeth Jones and we lived next door to your mom's parents on Maplecrest Road in Fort Wayne. We had the chance to meet her and visit many times when she would stop over, as we did with Aunt Katie and Uncle Jim. Of course that was many years ago I think I was 10 or 12. Uncle Jim even took us for an airplane ride over FW. We always enjoyed visiting because your mom was so nice and kind.
    Your grandmother made the best popcorn balls!!! We would always shovel the snow for them or if my mom baked cookies, pie, or made soup, stew etc. we would take some over to them. Sometimes we would just pop it to visit. We would check on them in the winter and see if they needed any groceries when we were going out. They were our BEST neighbors and we missed them terribly when they moved.
    We are sad that we unable to attend the Saturday service as we would love to touch base with all of you.
    My niece is competing in Winterguard State Finals in Indy.
    Please give our sympathies to Aunt Katie and Uncle Jim
    My parents still live at 4120 Maplecrest Road FW 46815.
    Thomas, Annette, Robert, Elizabeth, Annita, and Tim Jones

    I am so sorry about your mother, wife and grandmother. I am a member of Trinity but also knew Mrs. Hobrock many years ago at Miner. She was my third grade teacher at Miner and I loved her. What a wonderful lady. At Trinity I tried to find her but wasn't able to make contact. You have my deepest sympathy. God bless all of you.

    I just read the obituary in Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. I was one of Mrs. Hobrock's students at Miner School in Fort Wayne. I have very good memories of her. She invited our class to her wedding at Trinity English Lutheran Church and it is a beautiful memory. I also remember that she read "Charlotte's Web" to our class and it remains one of my favorite books. Whenever I read it to my grandchildren, I remember her and how I first heard the story. I am sorry for your loss and wanted you to know what she meant to me as a third grade student so many years ago.

    Dear Dave and Family....
    You have my deepest sympathy.
    Barb was the BEST!
    She was so supportive and sweet when I was at my condo.
    She appreciated me and my work painting and sprucing up the clubhouse. I just loved her. How could anyone not.

    I will miss her so much! Her smile and happiness was contagious.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you!
    She will be missed by so many of us!
    God Bless............
