Dear Richard, I just learned of Barbara´s passing and I want to express my sincere sympathy to you and your family. I had the pleasure of Barbara being my friend and co-worker. We had so much fun working together and being friends. I will always remember her as being a wonderful daughter to her mother rose. Her children and grandchildren were her whole world. I am sorry that she had suffered with this disease for so long. Hopefully she is in Heaven with her Mom and all of her friends and family. I know that she will be truly missed.
