I had the pleasure of working with Barb at what was then called DECCO at Scott AFB between 1986 and 1988. Steady, positive, always easy to work with. I remember many conversations about her husband and the problems he had with his knees. I was happy to have known her. Rest well, I have no doubt where you are.
