Barbra Streisand - Barbra Streisand Pays Tribute To Number One Fan

Veteran entertainer Barbra Streisand has remembered a superfan and biographer in a special online post after learning of her death from cancer.

Writer Allison J. Waldman, who turned her love for the Funny Girl icon into a job and released The Barbra Streisand Scrapbook in 1994, died on Monday (15Apr13) and the superstar paid tribute to her number one fan in a message on her official website.

In the post, the singer/actress writes, "I was very saddened to hear of Allison Waldman's passing Monday. She had been struggling bravely for many years to beat cancer.

"I knew Allison over the years as a very good writer and a kind and loyal fan of mine who created and wrote 'The Barbra Files' magazine and 'The Barbra Streisand Scrapbook'... she was always wonderful to me. She was dedicated to the accuracy of the news she conveyed, and she shaped her stories with great style.

"I was so happy to finally get to meet Allison at my Brooklyn concert this past Fall and to be able to thank her personally for her encouragement and dedication.

"I extend to her family and friends my heartfelt sympathies. She will be certainly missed by all of us."
