My deepest sympathies to the entire family. I enjoyed being with Barbara in both Chicago and her visits to Israel. Lots of nice memories. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. ז"ל

May your memories of Barbara bring you solace and guidance. She was the girl who seemingly had everything: beauty, brains, a contagious smile and twinkling eyes. May she find peace now joined with her beloved parents and son.
And add the Steinbergs to the list of families she babysat for! We bribed her with Poppycock.
