I was fortunate to meet Barbara in Houston at a Republican party. She was so tiny, so friendly, she just bubbled over with life. There were two other Barbaras there besides me and BKO. She was just the nicest, smartest, prettiest, most outgoing person you would ever want to meet. Everyone who met her loved her. She put everyone at ease, even total strangers. She lit up the room whenever she entered it. What a lovely smile she had. So full of life. She was as smart as she was pretty, and as pretty as she was nice! The world lost a beautiful person on 9/11. A truly beautiful beautiful person! God bless her memory and may she rest in peace. Amen.

I was with you, Buffy! I remember that night!

I was in utter shock when the second plane hit, but the tears didnt start flowing until word came that Barbara was on the plane that hit the Pentagon. It seemed so many things were happening so fast all at once, but Barbara was that human connection I experienced while sitting in my living room at home a few thousand miles away. When they talked of how she relayed information just before it crashed, I felt like every soul lost that day was mine.

God rest BKO and the nearly 3000 others who were killed that day.

I can still see her saying "Oh, Alan" and giving Alan Colmes that "You can't really believe that, can you?" smile of hers.

A happy warrior is what she was.
