    I am so sorry for your loss. I was a work place friend at UPMC Shady side. She was a true professional. She was also funny. People used to get us mixed up which amused both of us. I know that she will be greatly missed. You are all in my prayers.

    Barb was my friend and fellow nurse for over 20 years. We spent many vacations and fun times together with our families. She always made you laugh, it was impossible to be with her and not have fun. Although we lost touch these past few years , she was always on my mind. Rest in peace my friend. Love you always! Janet
