Barb was, as others have said, a lovely, kind person. I appreciated working with her so much and enjoyed her humor and warmth. So sorry I missed her service as I was out of town. My heart is with you.

Barbara may have been the most genuinely sweet person I ever met. I can still hear her gentle voice welcoming me to church each Sunday and asking about my family. Her sudden passing saddens me and I will miss her.
