  1. I was Christened As her Goddaughter. Although (and somehow) we lost touch less than 1 year after I became a Mother, my GodMother did meet, & Mother, my BabyGirl, also. How you ask? Because she kept her for me as I returned to complete my senior year of high school, no charge, until. Losing touch never meant forgetting, as I often thought on the Immense Blessing God Had Bestowed Upon me. I Thank Him for Joe and Barbara Stribling. I Always Will. ~Valerie Wimberly~

  2. My condolences to the Stribling family. During the time of Min. of Music at Gtr. Tree Mount Temple BC, Barbara was always a sweet, lovely person and a very faithful choir member. A positive role model. May she Rest In Peace.. Veree Kilby
