  2. Arthur and Debbie Pennesi Barbara and Preston were such a loving and devoted couple whose love seemed to grow with each year together. They were two of the kindest, smartest, and competent couple we knew. Their marriage was an inspiration in our lives, especially to enjoy family and friends as they are the true measure of a successful life. They were both pillars in their family that could be depended on for their strength love and understanding. They will be missed and our sincere condolences to their beloved children and their many friends.

  5. candleBarbara and Preston were two very special smart, kind, thoughtful, caring, generous and compassionate people who I had the privilege of getting to know while spending a lengthy time in their home as a family assistant. They cared deeply for their large family and animals (they both loved animals!) and their long term and valued friendships and enjoyed going over the memories they shared of that history and of their travels. They will be missed and remembered by many…..R.I.P. Barbara and Preston

  6. To Barbara’s and Preston’s family,
    We knew your parents to be a happy couple. We worked with Barbara for many years in Half Hollow Hills, where she was the head secretary in our offices, and she had a big hand in keeping Chestnut Hill working so well. She was smart, focused, and thoughtful. She was simply the best of secretaries, and we depended upon and deeply respected her. Barbara was not only brilliantly efficient, but she was kind, and gracious, and funny. And, in looking at your beautiful pictures, we are reminded of her wonderful, unforgetable smile
    We also knew that she and Preston had a loving marriage and that she was proud of her daughters and family.
    We have often spoken of Barbara in the years since she/we retired, and we will remember her beautiful presence in our lives.
    With affection,
    Ed and Deborah Blair
