I knew Barb for many years, and more recently I had fun helping her with her computer issues at CASI. She was more worried about where here games had gone (after the free trial), and that darn Facebook stuff! I feel like I got to know her grandkids from helping her with her FB and emails.
I also knew her on the Arsenal as a civil servant like myself.
She was always trying to learn new things on that computer.
My sincere condolences to the entire extended family. May she rest in peace.
