    Christopher, Jeffrey and Denise
    I have tried for days now to write this condolence but I don’t seem to be able to come up with the words. I had just spoken with her on Thursday. If I am shocked I can’t imagine what it is like for all of you. Please know that my family and I are deeply saddened, and I have lost a dear friend. I wish to extend this message to all of your families and hope you find some consolation in knowing that she is with your father.

    Barbara was ALWAYS a bright light, with a laugh that was contagious and a love for life that was enviable. The world is truly a darker place without her in it. I have no doubt, that Mr. Biamonte, Henry, my dad, and all of the others greeted her and welcomed her home to shine her light on all of us from above. God bless to Christopher, Jeffrey and Denise my prayers and thoughts are with you all at this time. She was truly a great woman. Michael, Alyssa and Sophia Halstead
