I have know Barbara my entire life! My Mother and Barbara were friends and were in the Christ Child Society together. Whenever she visited, she lit up the room, with her wit, her insight and her wonderful laugh. As an adult we had Barbara and Ed to many New Years Eves parties at our house. At the hour she would always bang the pots and pans to celebrate the new year her way. We so enjoyed their company and they added so much to the parties. Barbara will be missed by many.
