Barbara passed away in her sleep after celebrating her 100th birthday surrounded by family and friends. A prolific writer, she published 5 anthologies of poetry and pioneered several free writing techniques. Travel was a particular love of her’s, though in later years she preferred to spend time with her loved ones. She spent copious amounts of time in the kitchen because she loved to feed people and always made sure that if someone didn’t have any place to go for any holiday, there was room at her table. Her kindness and generosity made her well-loved by everyone who met her. She is survived by her son, Anthony, grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. Her family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Research Foundation**.
** As far as I know, there’s no such thing as the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Research Foundation. Anyone want to help me start it?
This was a really hard thing to write. It’s amazing what happens, though, when forced to think this way. You start to cut through the noise and find out what really matters…
