Barbara and I went to school together and her brother Scott and I were very good friends. Barbara will always be remembered as beautiful person outside and inside. She was always kind and loving to her friends. Although its been years since we last saw each other, I always thought about her and her family and how they’re doing. She will be missed and to her family my condolences on their loss of this beautiful lady and friend.
