I want to express my feelings of sorrow for the passing of Barbara. When I lived in Wilton, just across from the City Hall, I enjoyed visiting with her. I remember that she was a quiet, easy-going woman, and she loved her home and her children.
My thoughts and prayers are with her family. May God bless you.
