Barb was my best friend. I'm going to miss her, we had some great times together. She was always singing in the car when we traveled. We traveled to many places. I'm gonna miss her daily calls. I know she hasn't been good the past several months, She is now at peace My deepest sympathy to her family, she loved you all. I have many good memories to help me through her loss.

We had many a story we could tell about working nights at Meadville Medical Center. So sorry for your loss. I know that Barb's boys meant the world to her. God bless you all.
