    I am so sorry to hear of Barbs passing. I worked with Dan for over twenty years and considered him a true friend.

    Barb was my sister’s classmate at Lourdes High School in Nebraska City. Happy memories from when I tagged along, even if I wasn’t invited!! Got to see her a couple of summers ago when she came out to the Cloisters to walk the Stations. That was a very pleasant surprise. I am saddened by her loss and prayers to her family..

    So very sad to hear of her death. Sorry to say, I lost track of Barb after visiting with her about 30 years ago. Sounds awful to say “30 years”, but as we get older, time does really fly. I was hoping to see her at our 50th Class Reunion.
    My deepest sympathy and prayers for her and family.

    I am so sorry to hear of Barb’s passing. I knew her and worked with her in many capacities. She was so good with all the students she had. A great teacher and lady. God bless you and all your family.

    Thank you for all you’ve done. I’ll always remember your encouraging words at my dads funeral, and at my brothers funeral. Just want you to know how much you touched my heart and I’m sure many others!!

    “Grief, I’ve learned, is really just LOVE.. It’s all the LOVE you want to give but cannot. All of that unspent LOVE gathers up in the corner of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just LOVE with no place to go.”

    It’s 2:00 AM. I just found out about Barb. I was thinking of her earlier this evening when I came across some AC/DC on YouTube. Barb told me she loved them and heavy metal. She said it surprised people. It surprised me! That’s why I never forgot it. She was a fun person to be around, I missed her when she left the Career Center. Sincere condolences to the entire family, so sorry for your loss.
