    We never stopped talking when we were together.

    I loved her so.

    My condolences. I am sorry I did not have the opportunity to meet your mother. Her obituary was touching. My thoughts are with you, Lisa and your family.

    Best, Judy

  3. I am so sorry to hear of Barb’s passing. I hadn’t spent a lot of time with Barb, but the time that I did on numerous Social Occassions, she was one of the sweetist and most considerate ladies I have ever met. Not to mention her flare for fashion and how beatiful she always looked whenever I saw her!

    I will miss her not attending our little girls night out at local playhouses and Guild Luncheons!

    May she RIP knowing how much she was loved, and what a positive impression she made on people she came in contact with!

  4. My Dear Aunt Barb~
    It is hard to imagine her gone, as she has been such a big part of our lives. Even when we were young children she was always smiling, laughing and was so much fun to be around. Through the years, she continued to be a shining light in everyone’s lives and we always had so much fun together. She was so possitive and strong, never letting her disease get her down, she kept on living life and loving life. I can not make it to her service but I am with all of you in spirit. Stay strong Uncle Russ, and Don and Carol, take care of each other as she would do.She is smiling down on us and is in a better place, and she is in all of our hearts forever. We should all take example from Aunt Barb and live our lives with love, laughter, kindness and compassion, she truley touched the lives of many.
    Love, Lorie

  5. Barb was much loved, and will be
