To Barbara’s family I wish to extend my sincerest and deepest condolences. She will not only be missed by all of you but by all of those who knew her. I worked alongside Barbara in Patient Access for many years. She had a great personality, was kind and compassionate, and had such quick wit she always had me laughing. I feel honored to have known her.
