Barbara was my stepmother. Even though we had some rough patches during my teenage years, she became a friend and confidante. She was a wonderful loving wife for my dad and for that I am grateful. You will be missed.

Barbara was not only my sister-in-law but also a true friend. Thanks due to my brother, Jay, who had the good sense and exceptional taste to marry her.
I will always treasure my memories of her and be thankful that she brought Jay such joy.
Fly high Barbara!
