Dear colleagues,

I think many of those who work in EN-ES pair knew and I am more than sure, loved and respected Barbara Oliver Matas. She was such a humble and beautiful person, such an extraordinary translator. And a person of greath strength and courage. And kindness. She passed away on Friday 19 in her native Mallorca. She worked and wanted to live and smile till her last days. May I please ask for a minute of silence for her.

This is a huge, and a very painful loss. We'll miss you, dear, dearest Barbara. Rest in pease. Descansa en paz, querida, muy querida Bárbara. Te echamos de menos.

May I please ask the PROZ staff to delete, in brief, Barbara's profile. It's the desire of Barbara's family (please email me if you need any authorization).
Thank you to all of you who honour her memory.
Kind regards,
Francisco


Note to PROZ staff: if there is a possibility to leave Barbara's profile in a memorial way (without any contact details, etc.), please do so. Thank you.

Thanks for informing colleagues of this sad news and, please, extend ProZ.com condolences to Bárbara's family.

I will personally take care of replacing Bárbara's profile with an "In memoriam" note now.
