    Sending love and hugs to you all at this time. I would have attended funeral but I’m with my Mother Lucy, who is Barbara’s first cousin. She is in the hospital in New Mexico. We all loved Barbara. Her smile would light up a room. Mom said to send her condolences as well. They were only a couple months apart so they sort of all grew up together. Again, our hearts are with you. ❤❤

    Barb welcomed us to 14th Street in 1978, and was kind and generous to all. I enjoyed seeing her at Dr. Push’s office, along with Joni. My yellow buttercups that she gave me still thrive each summer, and remind me of her generosity. She will be missed.
