Danny - I am so sorry to hear about Barbara. Though I had not seen her in a few years, I thought of her very often, and missed seeing her - and you and Richard. Barbara was such a young and vivacious person and I was always in awe of her sweet and kind soul. She will be deeply missed! Sincerely, Pam

Dear Bob, Carolyn, Walter, and families,

I was saddened to hear of Barbara's passing. Although I hadn't seen her in a while, I have very fond memories of her. She was always ready with a smile and a laugh, and she was always a warm-hearted cousin to me whenever we happened to see each other.

I know you have wonderful memories of her, and I hope you can share them together as you say good-bye to her.

Love, Maureen and Steve

Loved ones may leave this world but they never leave Our 💕 Hearts. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Danny and the family. She was a happy lady. She would work a full time job and then go to her part time job. I worked with her at the Pathmark stores. Good time we had and lots of memory. May she Rest In Peace... Love, Shirley, Ray, Joseph and Robert.
