We lost our aunt Barbara late yesterday after a long, difficult struggle with pulmonary fibrosis. She was a strong, no-nonsense person who was fully engaged in life right up to the end. You could always count on her to puncture any ridiculous statement with a loud "Oh, brother!" She was married to our uncle for over 40 years, and shared his joys and travails with the same aplomb. We and all her family and friends will miss her terribly.
