Death is such an enemy of mankind, I am so sorry that it has touched your lives in this way. Barbara was a joy to work with and will be fondly remembered by those who spent so many years working with her. Though she was not retired long she really enjoyed finally being able to live life on her own schedule. She will be missed.

As young girls and teenagers we spent the night together almost every weekend. I loved her like a sister. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. She was a wonderful person, hard worker, intelligent, gifted, full of laughter and fun but most of all very tender hearted. The worlkd has truly lost a wonderful soul.
