I last saw Barbara in 2002 when my husband and I visited her in Australia, but we kept in touch through Skype chats.

We were all blessed for having Barbara in our lives!

She was beyond a ray of sunshine and breath of fresh air. Barbara was a beautiful woman inside and out with such intelligence, humor, compassion and sophisticated maturity. She seemed to always have such a hunger and passion for life. She embraced our country, school, and yes, even us with a smiling curiousity and tolerance.

She will be missed and it will always be our loss.

With love and sincerity,
Neena (Troupe)
