It is with great sadness that we learned this Monday of the passing of a beautiful soul Barbara Keller who was a true Gem of our valley, a woman of many roles: theatre director & producer, writer, restaurateur, philanthropist and a true humanitarian, but most of all she was a loved wife, mother, grandmother a friend, a human with a well accomplished life. Today was her service in Palm Springs and while we sadly could not attend Tatiana and I are mourning with everyone and still in shock from this tragic news.
From the first time we saw Barbara Keller we immediately noticed what a beautiful irradiating person she was inside out. Wherever Barbara was she would illuminate the place by her simple presence. Just her smile would lighten up the room and her shiny soul has touched & brighten our community so profoundly that the impact will last for ever.
We were not fortunate to be Barbara’s close friends but every time we had a chance to speak it would always be about her family, that she loved so much, or funny stories of her life experiences, especially while visiting France. Some of which are in her book “Orgasmic Days in the South of France, a personal guide of the Cote d’Azur”.
Despite her busy life Barbara always had time to enjoy and have fun. And we are so glad to have captured in our photo booths some happy and fun moments. Here are the most recent ones. Those genuine memories is the purpose behind our work.
At this difficult sad time our hearts go out to Jerry Keller and family. Barbara Keller, you will be missed but always shine in our hearts.
