About the Book

Lament, Love and Laughter equals life or a large portion of it. The reader sees glimpses of the author’s heart, while her soul is laid bare in a fervent prayer for her son, just days before he takes his life. From cherished childhood memories spent with loving grandparents, to painful memories of an abusive father, the author shares much of herself. Barbara’s love for her children and grandchildren is evident throughout, and the poem, “Worn-out Work Boots” reveals her love for her husband of 67 years. The author’s poetry, essays, and reminiscences are examples of humor and pathos, truth and character, and is a view of her outlook on life.
