Deepest sympathy to the family. Barbara was a long time friend of my Aunt Shirley. They worked at Magee's together. We used to see her at the store and I always commented how beautiful she was. Heaven has another beautiful angel.

I loved Barbie and so did my mother. I would like to think they are now "running around" (as my mother would say) as pals once again like they used to years ago. May God bless you, Barbie Schmidt.
