    Dear Abram and family,Barbara and I were in the same carpool all through high school. We very often studied together – usually English Literature – she would always do much better than I on the tests. I never got in touch with her all through the years but I thought of her often. God bless you all. Connie Kaye

    Rubin family, My sympathy and prayers are with you. I met Barbara in the mid 80’s when I was a seasonal worker at the tag office. She worked upfront in the mobile home department and I worked in the back main office. Her pleasant smile greeted as one walked through the front door. Be encouraged she is at peace with her master.

    Abram and Family, my deepest sympathy to all of you on your loss.
