I worked for Barb at the Clinical Center years ago, and she was one of the best supervisors I ever had. She was always kind and thoughtful to her employees and those around her. She loved Bert, her daughters and their families so much as was apparent whenever she spoke of them. You all have my deepest sympathy.
