I was a classmate of Barb's at Nerinx Hall. Even though we only saw each other at reunions, I considered us friends. She is gone too early but it sounds like she treasured every minute she had. My sympathy to her family.

It is with great sadness to hear of Barb's transition, leaving us all too soon. I will miss seeing her at the women's Monday meditation group where I met her. There will always be a little piece of Barb tucked safely in my heart. May her love and light transend all dimensions allowing us all to feel her touch when needed. And many blessings to her family during this time of condolence.
