Barb and I had lost touch over the years, time has a way of passing.
We'd been friends in High School. I'd ridden with her to and from school before either of us had a drivers licenses. She was one of my bridesmaids when I got married the first time, by then she as working for the IRS.
She was a great lady and a lovely person and will be missed.
