"Have just learned of Barb's passing and am most sorry to be unable to attend, but I do so wish to express my very deep sadness of all of our loss. Barbara was a most loving, and caring person. She was passionate and dedicated in all her endeavors. There is much I wish to express but can find few words just now. She was a most excellent person, in all ways. I am blessed to have known her. To have been allowed to share just a short time with a woman of such quality is a gift I still treasure. Know that she was loved, respected, and very much cared for. She will be missed, as women of her caliber are few in number. My sympathy and best wishes to all of her family. "
