    Diana, David and Bill – I am sorry to hear of the passing of Barb. She was a good friend and neighbor of my mom, Hazel Smith. They enjoyed many good times together and I enjoyed picking her up to go to luncheons and other events. She was always a gracious lady and I enjoyed her much. My condolences to your family. I will send a memorial to the Humane Society in her honor.
