    I know Barb from Giant Eagle pharmacy. She certainly was a delight, a firecracker, so funny and a great storyteller. We all really missed her once she moved. Now she’s with her Jimmy.

    We are so sad we will be unable to celebrate Barb with the family and many loved ones. She was truly a shining light and touched all who knew her with unconditional love and a joyous spirit. We were lucky to be part of her extended family and will treasure our memories with her (and Jim!) always. Our hearts share in your grief and celebrate her life. We were blessed to know and love her!
