May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief. I have know Barb since grade school. We shared a room while at Michigan State University as we worked on obtaining our BS degree in Foods & Nutrition. We parted ways after that as we moved across the country but we kept in touch along the way finally ending up back in Michigan where we could meet again even if it was just by phone/Facebook. She will be missed.
