  2. Wow. My sincere condolences. I worked in kosher deli when Barbara worked in seafood. Charles and Barbara both came to my wedding in 2001. They let us borrow the wishing well for the cards. I visited her when returning the well after honeymoon. I will miss her. We exchanged Christmas cards for a few years then lost touch. I’ve always wanted to see her again. I went two years at Faith Hjeritage bUT didn’t know her when she worked there. I was just looking up the school here online when I saw this announcement. My heart truly aches. I wish i had her temperament. She is an inspiration for me. A great example of how I should be as a a christian.
