    So sorry to hear of the passing of Barbara, thinking of her family and friends at this time. I never had the pleasure of meeting Barbara, but we always heard wonderful things about her and her family from my sister Pauline, who used to visit from Belfast and stay with Barbara for a few summers back when she was a little girl. Pauline has so many amazing memories of Barbara from when she visited, memories that she will cherish forever. Rest in eternal peace Barbara.
    Love from Marianne Rice, Belfast, Ireland xx
