Barbie & I were very close friends in Church & high school in the mid-60's! We had many fun Slumber Parties in her garage, hung out & sang duets together! She ran for Rose Queen & Miss Michigan and she was a very beautiful friend. I was a bridesmaid in her wedding. I know I will see her in Heaven soon. My sympathy and Love to all the Bronson's & Walters as they miss their dear sister, mom, & Grandma, Barbara. 💕 Diane Nicholson, Sarasota, Florida.
