I met Barb listening to The Irish Brigade.........March 10, 1978............we both fell in love with the music and became wonderful friends from that night forward........she taught me the importance of friendships and of joy in sharing music and the bonds of family. She was such a wonderful wife and mom..........and hostess for the gang!!!.......Wise, loving and strong.......May the road rise to meet you, Barb!! Love Always........Rosie
