So many wonderful school memories with this extraordinary woman. Barb was such a role model for the rest of us....mature, beautiful and accomplished...words rarely attributed to high schoolers, but they fit her to a tee. My sympathies to Donna and Jackie...wish I could join you on the 27th.

I was so sorry to learn about Barb, or Doogs as she will always be to me. Just as she will remain the "Most Attractive". I have many happy memories of us hanging out, trying to figure out our lives. I idolized her.
