I worked with Barb at Hines VA for 4 years. She was a hard worker and full of fun. Barb was very smart and sensitive. I am really going to miss her. She always talked about her husband, Ryan and Nicole. She was so proud of her family! My thoughts and prayers are with you all...

I was next door to where she lived growing up the day she passed. That in itself moved me. We went to same grade and high school together. I spent many or most days at her house after school. We lost contact after that but my memories are great and plentiful!!! She was one of the smartest in our high school graduating class. RIP Barbara

Two friends of mine lost their battle with cancer. I'm so upset with myself. I've thought of them both constantly even asked about them to those that I know that have kept in contact with them. My prayer is for their children and loved ones. As I already know that they have already transported their energy into eternity. My heart aches for them both but especially for Barb every time that I think of her I cry. I don't want to cry. What I do want is for her to know that she is an awesome person a magnified mother and a hell of a Pharm D. You are no longer with me in the physical form but you will always be in my mind and heart❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️peace and love Barb P. Love Always, Tam

I am very sorry for your loss Bettina, Martino and family. I remember Barbara as Bettina's younger sister back in the late 70's. She was smart, determined and pretty- just like her sisters. I'm glad I had a chance to see her again a few years ago and meet Dickie. Hopefully someday we will understand why God calls good young people home so early in their lives. Saying prayers with special intentions for your family during this difficult time.
