    It was such a pleasure working with Barb at Northern for multiple years. She became a very good close friend and will be sadly missed by all. I surely enjoyed making her yearly Christmas gift for her and seeing her expression when she opened up the gift. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during these hard times she always gave everyone a smile and it always made everyone’s day blessed thoughts.
