  5. I am so sorry to hear about Barb’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with her for 4 years at IGP and Airgas and I have to say that she made our days so bright. She was one of the most thoughtful, caring and truly generous people I have ever had in my life. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this difficult time. My heart breaks for them.

  6. My prayers are with the family of Barbara. I went to middle and high school with her. I have always loved her kind heart and friendship we shared in those days. It is so sad when we all go our seperate ways in life after school. I have also thought of Barbara as a dear and loving friend. Even though we hadn’t seen each other in years, I still shall miss her dearly knowing that I will never see her again. I am sure she was a loving wife, mother, daughter, cousin, aunt, but mostly a friend in my heart. Olivia Olivas

  7. Janet, I am so sorry to hear about your mother. What a very special lady Barbara was. She always had a smile, such a positive attitude and very full life. Our lives are so attached and blessed by our mother’s lives. They are very special people and Barbara was extra special in my eyes.

  8. I never called you mom, because I knew you couldn’t handle another kid calling you that. My girls did call you Nana, and loved you very much. You were a great light in this world, and I loved that your daughter Janet shared that light with us. I am glad that you are no longer in pain, and that you are at peace…..But I am deeply saddened with the thought that your physical presence is gone….Thank you so much for allowing my family to be part of yours…..I love you, and you will forever be missed…
