My mother is at Accura and shared a table with Barb when she was able - I met her (we were about the same age, and I enjoyed talking with her myself). She was always upbeat and positive and had a big smile. My mother isn’t very social but was very comfortable and encouraged around Barb. Barb looked after her. She will be missed in a big way. Just want you to know she made a difference. God bless.
