Barbara was a very dear friend of mine. I’m sorry to say I had moved and lost touch with her in the last year. She was an inspiration to me, and I have fond memories of working with her in her garden, and enjoying the company of her 2 wolves. I will miss her, and I’m saddened that I didn’t get to say goodbye. God bless, I’m praying for peace for the family.
