Dear Mike, girls and family,
I was so shocked to hear of Barb's passing. Please know my thoughts are with you all. I know how much you will miss her. I worked with Barb many years ago, and through the years we have kept in touch via our notes in our Christmas cards and I always looked forward to hear from her. She was a wonderful person, woman and friend. I loved her sense of humor! May God help you all through this very difficult time.

I have many fond memories of Barbara even though we haven't known each other for very long. I would see her everyday as she picked up her grandson and I picked up my daughter from school and we would chat about all kinds of things. There were some things we had in common. We lost our dear Mother's way too young and both had lost siblings. I will never forget her kindness and love. It's hard to believe she is gone.
