“I’m . . . terribly saddened that Barbara passed away. Another all too frequent loss as we get to our ages. How well I remember her gorgeous voice - Das Rheingold, Alceste, etc. Barbara was one of the sweetest, truest and lovely women I have never known and it brings tears to my eyes that the two of you had all those years together - what an incredible gift.” --Joan Rutkowski

Dear Jon: I read the obituary last night and I had forgotten how beautiful Barbara was! Those eyes and that radiant smile! We had such good times together during rehearsals. –Nina Hinson
Tell Barbara's family how much she was loved and respected by her colleagues. --Nina Hinson
