Barbara was a giving and kind person and was always putting others first. She was fun to be around and always brought a smile to your face. Her smile and laughter were contagious.  Barbara’s personal slogan was ‘We will do that tomorrow’ and that’s pretty much what happened. Another of Barbara-isms included ‘I love you more’.
