Not sure what to say?

I want to offer my condolences to Erv and his family . I did not know Barbara , but my son Ralph worked with her husband and he always had wonderful things to say about her . RIP Babs !

I am SO sorry and saddened to hear about Barb's passing. I worked with her husband Erv in the entertainment industry for several years, and even stayed with them at their home in Illinois on a couple of occasions when I had to travel out there for business from Florida. She treated me like I was part of their family and will never forget her love and kindness.

I offer my DEEPEST condolences and prayers to Erv, son Drew, daughter Olivia, son Henry, and the rest of her family. ...

I worked with your husband Arthur, who was totally infatuated with are a lucky lady.

So sorry to hear that Barb passed on, much too young. I knew Barb from York HS and would run into her from time to time over the years since. Always a positive, funny, endearing person. My condolences to the family.

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.

My deepest condolences to Henry and his family.

My sisters, Beth and Claudia, and I grew up with Barb down the block from us when Barb and I were in 7th grade. At first , Claudia and our friend, Richard Gruber, were closer with Barb; Laughing and talking in our living room on Poplar together.
But when Barb and I both moved to Lincoln Park, we went out together often. Sharing our stories, condo shopping, and talking about dating. We were close in our 20's.
I feel lucky to have reconnected with Barb through our York high reunions...
