  1. Arin & Jim, I am so very sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. She was a dear friend and person. She was special in every way and really cared about others. She will be deeply missed. Lana

  2. From across the street, we extend our deepest sympathies. In such a short period of time, Barbara and I became friends. Our prayers are with the Sarris family. Bev

  3. My deepest sympathies to Barbara’s family. I met this very special woman when we were both working at the Quinnipiac Pool. She was a warm new friend who extended herself and her ideas to me and others. I was priviledged to meet the son who worked at the Poll with us too. God comfort all members of the family.

  4. To Barbara’s children and family – I worked with with Barbara at Dun & Bradstreet many years ago and again two years ago at Quinnipiac University. Please accept my deepest and most sincere sympathies.

  5. Barbara was a private person and very kind and sensitive. She always spoke about James and Arin and was very, very proud of them. Her dogs were important to her and she loved them, too! I regret I only met her a little more than a year prior to her passing: She was special. I am very sorry for your great loss, James and Arin.

  6. Arin- I’m so sorry for your loss. As you know I loved your mother and am extremely disheartened by the news. I wish you all the best moving forward. If you wish to contact me you can reach me by email or by phone at (847) 989-2101. Give my best to Jaime as well. I love you bro and I miss you. Be well my friend. -Alex Lalley
