 What a sweetie Barbara was.  I did see her not to long before she passed away and I am so glad.

I too saw Barbie close to when she passed for the last time.

I remember when I lived in Germany with my first husband, she sent me the Simon and Garfunkel album with "Bridge over Troubled Waters" on it.  She was such a good friend, and I was lucky to call he neighbeor too.   Our parents were very close also.  Love and Miss you!

Barbie, Leslie and I along with others in our group shared many fun times together growing up in the Holiday 26th Ward. Barbie's Dad was my bishop when I left on my mission to Denmark..So sorry to hear of her passing. Love and best wishes to her wonderful family.

Barbie was one of my best friends throughout high school, and lived just around the corner and down the block.  She was kind, fun, bright, very crafty, and a truly good person.  Her dad was my first bishop, and her mom was one of my surrogate moms, so I lived a lot at her house.  Our group of friends had the BEST of times, and made a thousand memories.  She stayed a great friend to me, even though she went to BYU and I stayed at the U.  While in college, I changed my English major to nursing, and one factor influencing that decision was knowing the character of women like Barbie, who had gone into nursing, too.  It had been her dream career from I-don't-know-how-early in life, and she was a wonderful nurse.  She married Kim Sanderson while at the Y, and they had several children.  We had daughters at about the same time, and I was happy that they got to play together when I would materialize from Arizona.

I was able to have a long visit with Barbie's mom one evening a couple of years ago, and we shared many sweet memories of her wonderful daughter, my funny friend.  Barbie left this life far too soon, and I will think of her ever after on Halloween, her birthday.
