    I was blessed to have known Barbara and have benefitted from her knowledge and kindness. She talked of her love for and pride in her daughters. It was clear to me that they were the delight in her life. I am so sorry her life has ended. Even though I did not know her long I will miss her. I will think of each of you in her family and pray for your comfort.

    I am so sorry to hear about Barb. After looking at her picture I wasn’t sure I would have recognized her, but then, I noticed her smile-that’s Barb. I have thought of her over the years, and wished we had stayed in touch-I have great memories of her from high school-she was a good friend through those years. Arlene, Coral & Chelsea, you are in my prayers.

    Arlene, I am so sorry to hear of Barb’s passing. She was an amazing person, so smart and talented. I will let Cheryl know, and she will be back for mom’s memorial service on Sept 15th.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you. If I were there right now, I would give you a big hug!

    Arlene, I met you at our cutting show in Canal Winchester Ohio with Barbara a couple of years back. I miss her so much. In fact, I just did a search on her and found this site and wanted to write you a note. She was an amazing woman, mother, Pilates teacher and friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you and her girls.
