I was fortunate and blessed to be Barbara's next door neighbor for 21 years. She was my favorite neighbor of all time. She was such a wonderful person and I'll miss her every day. We should all be so lucky to have such a full and beautiful life at 89 years of age. Glad for her that she didn't suffer and that she was healthy, happy, and sharp right to the end. If anyone deserved a peaceful passing to the next life, it was Barbara. Nancy Newkirk
