Barbara and I played together every summer in Terre Haute. I was her second cousin. My grandfather, Max, was her mother's brother. I couldn't wait until I arrived from Chicago to call her and go over to her house. We had a wonderful time year after year. I also remember her wedding and how much she loved the man she was about to marry, John. I lost touch with her over the years, but she has always been in my heart. May her memory be a blessing.
