    Barbie (as I always called her), was the
    most sweetest, kindest, and generous person you could ever meet. I will miss her dearly, as it will not be the same passing by her desk everyday and not to see her look up and smile at me and say good morning or ask how I am doing.
    My biggest sympathies go out to the
    family, please take solace in knowing she touched so many people lives.
