In the first months after Barbara met Bobby, he, Barbara, and the Songs of Broadway gang shared a few meals together after the shows. He was kind to us, Barbara's friends, and we appreciated his support of her talent and were happy that they found one another. My thoughts and the thoughts of many others are with Barbara. May Bobby rest in peace...
