    I met and worked with Barb at General Seating -NHK. She was a dear friend and quite a good person. I always enjoyed seeing her and on occasion, four of us would meet for breakfast on Saturday mornings. She was a sweet friend. The world somehow feels wrong without her in it. Rest in peace my friend. You were loved by many people. Jake and Sam, my heart goes out to you and I’ll keep you and your family in my prayers.
