Phil, Barbara alway made me smile even when I was going through very hard times. I enjoyed working with her and had a lot of fun when we when out after work. She was a very loyal friend and will never be forgotten.

Dear Phil,
I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I was shocked when my mom gave me the sad news of Barbara's passing. She was such an amazing person and oh how I looked up to her. She is a part of so many of my childhood memories. I will never forget her sweet smile, tender hugs and her sense of style. She definitely inspired my passion for shopping!
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sending you much love.

Angelina and I will always remember the positive attitude, the smile, and the joy that Barbara seemed to have. She affected our lives, and it was a pleasure to know her. We look forward to seeing her again in the near future, in a better world, a better time. In the meantime, stay close to God, Phil, and he will help you to bear your loss. And don't be afraid to let us know if you need anything, even just to talk.
