I first met Barb in the Rehab Unit at Franciscan Hospital on Wabash St. I was there recovering from a stroke. We ate 3 meals a day together for a few weeks. She was such a positive woman with a wonderful sense of humor..always cheering me on.. She was one of my inspirations for learning to walk and talk again. I will never forget her kindness and her beautiful and easy smile. She talked about her family often. She was so proud of all of you. God bless her and you.
