Barbara and I were friends from grade school.  This was the start of Pat Boone/Elvis era and we both tried to dress the part (rolled down socks, neck scarves etc.].  We were a sight and laughing the whole time.

I was saddened to know that she had passed and I am sure she is greatly missed.

I remember Barbara from Carleton grade school.  We were friends all through high school .  When we were  in college--Barbara, Linda Pauley, another friend and  I drove to Washington DC for Easter vacation.  We took Barbara's car.  Visited the White House, the Washington Monument and also stopped at Atlantic City. We had a great time.   I was saddened to hear that she has passed.

One Spring day, in second grade, I went home at lunchtime with Barbara. I don't remember if the lilacs were in her yard (I hope so) but we picked a big bunch for our teacher. jAs a result, we were late getting back to school.  Mrs. Eberle was very cross with us.  I think of Barbara when I think of lilacs. 

(I LOVE lilacs, but they do not survive in this Texas heat...I've tried)

Barbara was a neigbor of mine who would walk to Carleton with me before school and at lunch. We would play hopskotch (both kinds) together almost every day in fifth grade. She also was responsible for a half tooth that I don't have but not out of meaness but having fun.

Sorry your not with us. Seems like only yesterday that Meribeth Hodges, Joan Phelps, Coleen Kober, Wayne Reineck, Bernie Raml, me Ron Imig, and yourself were enjoying fifth grade at Carleton. I think Mr Phelps was our teacher and suppose he enjoyed having so many of us well behaved, hard studying students. He had us reading a lot of books. I remember we got a point for each book and had to make a book report for each book. I liked the books that were on Central America and about twenty pages long because the points added up fast. I use to put in the book report that the the books were to thin and needed more pages. After a few book reports the comment came back "Ron why don't you read thicker books then".
