Guest Book & Memories
December 31st, 2018
One of my fondest memories (I think this is accurate. If not, it's still good.) of Barbara was when she had me listen to a Barbra Streisand recording, and she shared how much she liked her. I think it was my first real introduction to her music. I, of course, became a fan also.

A great sharing and caring friend for 35 years. I always enjoyed vacationing with her in Puerto Vallarta, Las Vegas, cruising, and fun filled weekends at the Horseshoe Casino. Our oldest son's were college roommates and our younger sons played on 3 little league teams together.
You will always be in our hearts and memories.
