I was fortunate enough to work with Barb for several years. She was always listening to music in her office when I would come over to assist her with her computer. She learned that I was a musician and music lover in general and she would often give me CD's to take and listen to and then ask for my impressions when I returned it. We had many wonderful discussions and she was a wonderfully down to earth and kind person. I'm very saddened to learn of her passing. She will be missed...

Barb and I liked the same books. So when I was setting up for the garage sale, she came over to look at whatever I put out. She usually walked home with an armful. She will be missed. Carol Gilmer
