But a large oil painting hung in her dining room, a dramatic landscape of trees aflame in bold oranges and yellows set against majestic mountains, just as easily brings back some of her fondest memories of loved ones.  (Pictured at right:  Barbara Meyers, Dr. David Gillespie and Douglas Meyers.)

The painting, one of Barbara's favorites, was a gift she and her brother, George "Douglas" Meyers, bought for their parents in honor of their 25th wedding anniversary during a family trip to Mongolia in 1969.
