Barb passed away on August 13, 2014 after a short battle with a bad, undiscovered cancer.  She had so many friends from so many different sources but all of you into cats and quilting have been particularly kind and supportive.  Laura and I thank you.   John Bolesta


  1. What?

    I'm sorry, but I'm stunned, completely shocked and I only "knew" her from her blog posts and her comments on my own blog. I always thought she was one of the few out there in cyber space I'd really, really like in person.

    I'm just...I don't know. I don't know what to write. I'm in disbelief and right now, in tears.

    Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you both, and all who knew her. I don't have words for how much this saddens me.

    Universal peace and blessings to you...Thank you for this post, as difficult as it must have been. I appreciate knowing, as hard as it is.

  2. I read of your loss on Kim's 'Musings' blog. I didn't know Barb and had not visited this blog, but I wanted to come and leave my condolences. As somebody who has lost loved ones to cancer, I know that it must feel as though she was stolen, with so much time and joy left to live. God bless all there.

  3. I was so sad to hear of Barb's passing today. Because of her, we adopted our lovable cat, Toula. Barb certainly had a way with the feline world; and it showed in the way she cared for them. I shall miss her!

  4. I am so very sorry to hear of Barb's passing. My heart goes out to you and all who knew and loved her.

  5. Oh my gosh, I'm in disbelief that Barb is gone. My heart is overcome with sadness. I knew her from her blog posts and her many comments on my blog through the years. My prayers are with you as you grieve.

  6. I miss her every single day - she's in my heart as are you and Laura, John. I'm still in shock that she's gone but I treasure all of the wonderful memories that I have of her. Prayers and love to you and Laura from Mathew and I.

  7. So sorry a year has elapsed since her passing... love, prayers and purrrrs sent your way <3
