    Barb and I were best of friends when we were children and young adults. I have so many fond memories of the fun and and good times we had together. She was always very sweet and we loved to laugh together and just have a great time. I was so glad I got to see her one last time about a year ago. So sorry about your loss Chris and Jen.
