I was saddened to see in this week's Columbia Paper the notice of the passing of Barbara Jenkins, and recall from years ago the many good times that my parents enjoyed with Barbara and Murray. Barbara was a remarkable woman who touched the lives of many people. My deepest sympathy to all her family.
