My deepest sympathy to Barbara's family. Barbara was one of my first friends when we moved from Pittsburgh to Millville, NJ in 1953. No mattter where we lived over the years, we remained close and kept in touch by mail or phone. I just spoke with Barbara a few weeks ago. I will miss my dear friend always. Pat Kenney
