Well Barb what can I say to you. I’ll miss your smile and prayers and catholic christian perspective on life. You prayed for me and I great appreciate those times. The last time we chatted you asked me how I was doing and if I attended the online charismatic prayer meeting. There is something amazing that happens when we praise God. Thanks for showing me how when I fist became Catholic. Barbara I know you fought the good fight and I appreciate you sharing your challenges these many years. I was shocked to hear of your passing and I offer my condolences to your family. Yet I’m certain that you made it. Gods got to be happy to have you with him. Thanks again for sharing your faith life when I needed it. I hope to see you there one day when we can praise him together again in a joyful noise. God Bless you Barb your friend in Christ Shannon

Barb and I worked together for 20 years at Atmel. During that time she became as a sister to me. I loved her dearly and will miss our get togethers and the birthday and holiday cards we exchanged. Barb, my life was enriched by knowing you. I will hold you in my heart forever. Marggy
