    So very sorry to hear of Barb‘s passing. Barb worked with me until she retired. She was wonderful to work with and a joy to be around. She talked a lot about her dog so I know she loved them dearly. My deepest sympathies to the family.

      Sad. When I hear Karen Carpenter’s voice I think of Aunt Barb. Weekends spent all of us together at Hillside Dr or Bouie Dr. Parents all playing CLUE in the kitchen at Barb’s blue table set. Barb always had her green glass bowl filled with Ruffles potato chips and a smaller green bowl attached to the rim in a set with onion dip. Aunt Barb would always lead Barry and Eric in a sing along to American Pie. Our family was too shy to join but we all appreciated Barb’s free spirit and sense of fun. Pooper, Polly, (Daphne),…dogs. Aunt Barb used to play first base on a softball team. She taught me to play first base on my Cub Scout team. I asked for a first baseman’s glove because she had one. We will miss you, Aunt Barb. You guys probably have the CLUE board all set up.

    Eric, I provided your daycare for a couple of years at 605 S 51st Ave in Omaha. My sons were Mark and Brett. Other boys you would have played with were Stacy Hughes and John Brockhaus. You were such a dear boy! If you provide an email address, I have a picture of you and all the others sitting on the steps at my house I would love to share with you. Your mother was always so kind to me and good; she adored you! Rick and I, Mark, Brett, and Ryan moved in 1972 from Omaha to Denison IA where we grew up. We moved to the family farm where I still live. Rick died 19 months ago. Your mom was only one month older than he! We had additional children: Brock, Jonah, Anna, and Meghan, all grown and happy. I would so love to hear from you! I didn’t know about Ian…he must have been born later. Look forward to hearing from you! Sending heartfelt condolences and much love to you and your family.
