I am heartbroken at the enormity of your loss. Barbara was exceptional in so many ways, but what always resonated was her deep and abiding love for her family. She loved to celebrate with you. I will always remember he smiling and vibrant in the red coat Glenn gave her one Christmas. She was a wonderful friend.
