My heart is broken for all of you. Barbara was the most amazing and beautiful person. Her sense of humor, intelligence and caring for others was unmatched. She was so kind and giving to my entire family and we will forever be so grateful that we got to know her so well. My moms Barbara’s friendship so late in their lives was so unexpectedly wonderful and fulfilling for both of them. My only comfort is believing my mom and your mom are together gossiping, having a glass of wine and some cheese and crackers. She was the most AMAZING Lady - my family will never forget her - my heart is with all of you ❤️
