    We have been neighbors of Barbara’s for fifteen years. It has always been a pleasure to meet her in the lobby and just chat.

    One year she bought an entire case of lemonade Girl Scout cookies from our grand daughter. How she loved those cookies.

    She was one “classy lady” and we will miss her.

    Our sympathies to her family.
