I have worked with Darin Barbara's son for about 20 years. Darin has always talked so highly of his mother so I know that she was a great person. I only had the honor of meeting her two or three times when Darin was playing softball for our company Holcam Sales. I am so sorry for your loss.

One of our fondest memories of Barb is when she joined in on a water pistol fight at our house when the kids were young. We had so much fun. Gary was soaked. Barb loved life and she had a wonderful one. She will live on in our memories.Our hearts are with you all. She will be dearly missed.
