You know, I envy Barbara more than any other person in the world! I wish I were one tenth the person she is. Recently we drove down to the beach. We parked by the water’s edge and turned on the radio. We just sat there in silence. Suddenly I realized that Barbara was crying. It’s only the second time I’ve seen her allow her emotion to get out of control. She has so much feeling, but she doesn’t believe in exhibiting it. She’s been through so much and she’s so grateful for everything that life has given her. If going through things gives one Barbara’s tolerance and appreciation, I wish it could have happened to me. I’m really awed at what has happened to Barbara. She was an orphan and practically brought herself up. She fought every inch of the way right up through life. From poverty she struggled to where she is today. She’s really accomplished something.- Robert Taylor
