My family were next door neighbors of Barbara, her mom & dad for 50 years. Barb was so kind. My young son grew up knowing her. Our close knit little nieghborhood watched over her during the years of her ill health. I am sorry for your loss. She made a difference in her community and certainly in all of our lives. Barb volunteered at the chamber office, she sang in the church choir, she had many friends. She loved people and they sure loved her. When my mother had cancer Barb would allow her to commute to Boston with her for her treatments at Tufts. She was a wonderful woman. We will miss her.
