Thank You to an incredible friend... Barbara Winters

Neither Dondino nor Donna are poets, so this thank you to Barbara Winters will never have the flair or style of such an elegant woman.  A woman who has spent her life taking care of her family, friends and charities for her community and beyond.

A woman who came from her meager farm life to the big city of Los Angeles to make her mark on the world.  A woman who had big dreams but never realized that those dreams would come true.  A dream that would allow her to touch so many lives in so many wonderful ways.  

After the loss of her soul mate, and love of her life, Nat Winters, she felt the need to travel outside her comfort zone and seek new friends and experiences.  Nevada became her first journey alone.  A state that had become a second home for both she and her husband throughout the years, prior to his passing.

It was a new journey that she would travel without Nat.  A little scary, a little strange, very lonely and yet exciting.

It did not take long before Barbara was traveling back and forth from California to her new vacationing spot of Las Vegas.  It took even less time for the new friends in Las Vegas to claim her as their own.  

Barbara seemed to have such a loving touch with strangers, who somehow became bonded with her upon their introduction. 

Now, almost twenty years later, she is still touching lives and making friends throughout California and Nevada.  She even makes friends on the highway between both cities.  We (Dondino and Donna) had the opportunity to travel with Barbara and meet a few of Barbara's highway friends.  As odd as it sounds, she is a real life "Pied Piper" who gathers friends wherever she goes and keeps them for life.

We were lucky enough to get picked up along her journey.  Needless to say we are friends for life.  No one that meets Barbara can ever let her go.  She just has a spell over all of us that makes all of us bond together. 

 

Barbara and her good friend Cindy Doumani are both Ambassadors of Kindness, Love and Giving.  Two of the best friends any of us could have, and two people you are lucky to have in your life if they ever pick you out along their journeys.

Thank You Barbara for your friendship and the beautiful words you bestowed upon Donna and myself.  Thank You Cindy Doumani for your love and friendship.   And Thank you also Cindy for sharing your friendship with Barbara, with us. 

 

We Love You both beyond words!  

Sad to lose a long time and dear friend.  But so fortunate to have been friends for so many years.  Don Usherson will be missed!
The song below is in memory of a favorite song that Don loved to hear me sing!  Thank you Don for appreciating my talemt.  It is an honor to sing for you.
