“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

I was deeply saddened by the news about Barbara. She was one of the most talented and loving people I have ever known.
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
