To the Crockett Family, especially Silvia and Lucy:

We were sorry to hear of Barbara's death. We would often see her at St. Michael's 5:30 mass and she always had a smile even though we could see she was suffering.

I just wanted to say how wonderful it was to know Barbara. We met when I transferred to the Midtown Acute Care administration office. We would have nice conversations about our children and life in general. We didn't see each other often after we both moved to different buildings, but I will always treasure my memories and her friendship. May God bless your family and help you through the difficult days ahead.

Barbara, I have appreciated working with you for the last 17+ years. You have been an example of the good things that nursing represents. I will miss you and your strength. Thank you for everything.

It is with profound sadness that I offer our family's condolences to Bruno, the boys, and the whole extended family. I saw the important positive influence and impact Barb had on the life of others, especially my own daughter Maureen. I pray now that the love and devotion Barb had for her family and friends, truly becomes a lesson we can all live and learn from. The Valdettaro Family.

Barbara was the sweetest sister I have ever had. After she married Bruno, got pregnant, had first son named Eric. I babysat while both parents work. Two years later, she had another son named Kevin, I, too, take care of him. Watch them grow. Now she is with God and Dad. I miss her laugh and smile.
