What sad news! Barbara and I lived as teens just a few hauses apart on Alcatraz Avenue. Every school day morning we took the same bus up to College Avenue and on to Tech for four years. Although I've been an expatriate living in Europe almost 50 years now I've remained a friend of Barbi and her husband Hans and their son Kevin and his sister Jennifer (I sang at her wedding) and I've spent many visits to Oakland as a guest in their home. She and Hans were my last real connection to "home"... to Oakland, since all my family have passed on. I will sincerely miss her. R.I.P. Barbi....Ron Williams
