After knowing you for over fifty years as a friend, as a sister, a mother figure, a psychologist having a great sense of humor; most importantly as a fellow chocolate lover, even though you are not here physically you will be in my heart forever.
There is so much more to say, but I will share all of my wonderful memories of Barbara in the future.
Much love and condolences to the family.
Barbara was such a beautiful person and became such an important part of my life .I am so grateful for all the memories that i share with her and her family. I am so glad that her memory will live on in Zabs place
The life lessons Blinka taught me is something I’ll always cherish and remember her by. Also, that you can always have more than one See's chocolate candy. Miss you!!!
If legacies are measured by the impact the departed have on our lives - then Barbara’s legacy is huge!
I first met Barbara in the late 1960s when I was a teenager. With Caren, we would spend hours in their Westholme Avenue house sitting on plush burgundy sofa chairs, probing teen angst, with the grandfather clock ticking in the nearby living room. Time stopped when I was with Barbara. She listened intently, asked the right questions, and her comments were always thought provoking. Often at poignant moments, she might pause in mid-sentence to adjust the lighting in the room. With this adjustment, she created a more intimate and safe space. She was fully present, and so was I These conversations always led to invaluable insights and growth. She was masterful at uncovering truths while making you an active participant.
Barbara was a philosopher and humanitarian, and a fierce defender of the vulnerable.
She showed unwavering devotion to her family and friends, many of whom counted her as among their closest friends. Her personality was magnetic and her joy and laughter were contagious. I still smile, remembering how in a rising, melodious voice, she would call out "Jerr..." to her loving husband.
50 years later, I realize that Barbara helped craft the lens and compass that I have used to find my way, to shape my life. She taught me the value of probing, imagining, and openly embracing the many possibilities at every journey. Through many decades, she taught me the importance of empathy, profound reflection, and the steadfast devotion to what matters in life - to what truly feeds us.
She will always endure in my heart.
