I first met Barb when she was a record co. rep. and I was in music retailing in Melbourne (city). We took coffee breaks and soon became friends, later visiting her and Jennie's home in Lauriston and later at 'Bleak House' roses near Kyneton and still later in Kongwak in South Gippsland. Lots of laughter and bon-ami during visits as Barb related her life stories! A generous, warm and loving person, as too is Jenni, to whom my thoughts are with at this time of her loss of a soul-partner . Barb was a person of passion and great warmth of personality and together with Jenni, shared particular love and knowledge of animals, plants and gardens.They both undertook the adventures and daring of new ventures that life presented, with infectious enthusiasm and humour. My condolences for her loss to family & close friends whom all must sorely miss her in their lives.
