            “I was very saddened to learn of Barbara Marshall’s death.  I had been monitoring her situation closely and knew that she was fighting her health challenges with her characteristic courage and determination.


            “Barbara served the people of the islands exceptionally well during a distinguished career in journalism and as a member of the Honolulu City Council.  I enjoyed our relationship, especially when she was Council Chair, because she was always honest, true to her convictions, and an effective representative of her Windward Oahu constituents.


            “I’ll miss Barbara, and so will her colleagues on the Council, her many friends and supporters, and the people of Oahu.


“Gail and I extend our prayers and condolences to her husband, Cliff, and their family.”
