Not sure what to say?

I met Barbara in 1968 in an anthropology class at the University of Arizona. We dated for a while until I went into the Army and she entered law school. We've stayed in touch ever since and were good friends. I spoke with her earlier this year and knew about her recent health issues. I will miss her and our occasional email and phone conversations.

My sympathy to Barbara's family. I will miss her at our monthly brunch/book club gatherings.

I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Please find peace and comfort in Psalms 119:76

I am very sorry to hear that Barbara has passed. We were colleagues at the Pima County Attorney's Office in the late 1970s. She was known as a tough prosecutor but I always found her accessible and willing to help younger lawyers with their cases. My condolences to Barbara's family.

I was very sorry to read about Barbara's death. I worked with her at the Attorney General's Office in the 80s and would very much like to be informed about any memorial. I can be reached at [email protected]

I was so sorry to learn about Barbara's passing. My thoughts are with her family and friends. - John Pyle (long time friend)
