    I grew up with Barbara and loved her very much. I have not lived in Massachusetts since I was married decades ago. I just recently heard of her passing and my heart feels deep sorrow.

    I can remember so many fun times we had together. I recall when she was telling me about her trip to Ireland the first time she went. She came back and her favorite song was from Jefferson Airplane: my bags are packed I’m ready to go….. She told me the greatest stories of that trip and I eventually want to Ireland myself.

    She had a really great great family. I remember the twins and Denise and her parents. Her mother was a real hoot and could cook a really great meal.

    Barbara we will be together again someday and I look forward to catching up. All my love, Lesley. P.S. my father still lives on Gilbert Road and is 92. When I go to visit him I always walk on Gorham Road with the hopes of seeing someone in your family.
