Barbara was one of the original members of our writers group, and we still remind each other of her good advice ("Barbara said..."); she always said yes when I asked her to give a writing workshop in my classes, and she was the best editor I will ever have. One of her paintings, Sierra Dream, hangs in my bedroom. One year for my birthday she surprised me with a small framed watercolor of an old barn in the Washoe Valley that I had admired. She was one of my dearest friends. Barbara, dear kindred spirit, I will carry you in my heart always. Love, Marilee February 04, 2021 Oh how I miss you Mom. Every moment of every day.
