    Paul, Paulie, and Brittany, I was truly sorry to hear of Barbara’s passing. As you know better than any of us, she was an amazing person and was a real fighter. I’ve had the opportunity to work with her at IBM over the years and truly valued her technical expertise, her passion for our clients, and her total dedication to her teammates. Though my relationship with her was a professional one, I do know that the most important things in her life were each of you. I can only imagine how difficult these days have been for you all. My wish for you all is that you will find comfort in the treasured memories you have and you will find strength to face each day. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers each and every day! Paige Mizak
