I was deeply shocked and saddened to hear about Barb's passing.  Barb and I worked as EA's together at FE Madill SS for many years.  Barb was so good at what she did as she always had such a great connection with the kids she worked with.  She and I shared lots of laughs throughout the years and she always had time to talk about her family and was so proud of her kids and grandkids.  

I know she will be deeply missed but please know that she made a difference in the many young lives that she touched.  I will value the friendship we shared and will remember all the laughs we shared with a smile.

Karla and the Redmond family,

  I was shocked to read of Barb's passing. She worked with our Down Syndrome son, Paul, several years ago, and was loved by him. If I met her from time to time after he left school, she would often ask about him. Treasure your memories.
