So sorry for your loss.Take Care of yourself.

Charlie, Joe and I just heard that our lovely Pat is gone. We are so very saddened by this news. Pat was a vivacious and intelligent woman who graced our neighborhood with friendship and humor that we enjoyed for over 20 years. We know she adored first and foremost her family and dear friends. Personally, we loved and admired Pat and will remember her with affection forever. Love Mr. and Mrs. Joe Henry-Hidden Lane Neighbors
Charlie, so sorry to hear of your Moms passing. Just learned of it from a beautiful post from Debbie about her on Facebook. Although its been years I have some fun memories of her, Fred, and you on Hidden Lane during our high school years.
I will always remember that smile of her's when I first entered that classroom in 1968. She made those scared feeling just melt away.I may not remember all my teachers names through the years, but I have always remembered her's. Thank you Miss Barbaria.Thank you for being there for me. I am the one in the plaid dress in the picture that Jimmy Bondi put up. Hugs and hugs to all of Miss Barbaria's family.
So sorry to hear of her passing away..she was our first teacher to many of us...we have never forgotten the impact you made on our lives,1968 does not seem that long ago now...Rest in peace Mrs.Barbaria. " Jimmy" Bondi
So sorry for the loss of your mother, Charlie.
Mrs. Barbaria was my first teacher, and I have always held happy memories of my time in her kindergarten class. There must be a special place in heaven for someone who so positively touched the lives of children. Rest in peace, Mrs. Barbaria.
I am sad to hear of Mrs. Barbaria's passing today. I did not have her as my kinder teacher but I remember being terrified of her, I'm not sure why now, but I was... and she got word of it. She went out of her way to pull me out of class and talk to me on the playground to make me feel at ease with her.... and I wasn't even one of her students! She was a very kind lady.
If I ever could have picked one person to spend a month on an island with it would have been Pat. She was one of the most complete and original woman I have ever known. She was a rare person who loved her life and lived it well. Her life was a story of adventure,laughter,loss and success. Anything Pat did she did it to perfection. There just wasn't any other way. When you visited Pat she was a true hostess. You would have thought the King was coming over. She made you feel so important and wanted. I miss seeing her dash around East Sacramento with her sporty hot red BMW and all her words of wisdome. "Make sure you sit at the bar at a restaurant. That's where all the truly interesting people are. Thanks Pat for all the smiles and for teaching me to love a dirty Martini. I was blessed to have the honor to know you. Miss you!
Who can forget your dramatic reading of Wanda's Roses to twenty spellbound kindergartners as you haughtily proclaimed "If those are roses then I'm the Queen of England!" You will be greatly missed.
I hope someone plays "The Rose" at your service -- it was your favorite song ..
You will be greatly missed Pat. Thank you for the laughs, cooking tips, and for welcoming me into your family with such loving arms. Rest in peace.
