Dear Hogan's, was very saddended to hear of Barb's passing. Sending you my condolences at this difficult time. Barb had a tremendously kind personality, and she lit up a room. On the several occasions over the past 5 years or so when I came down to Kingsbridge for the plays or work bees, she was very gracious to help me get involved and I always enjoyed our brief visits and conversations. She certainly was a pillar in the community and I'll recall fondly the chance I had to reconnect with her in the past few years. You are all in my prayers at this difficult time. God bless yous!

Words are not enough to express our sincere heartfelt sympathy to Francis, Alex and Emily during this time and in the the quieter days ahead. I worked with Barb when she first came to our area, and learned very quickly that her heart was made in a special way that made her always look at ways to help others. She will be missed  and remembered by so many whose lives she touched, especially to her family that made her so proud every day.  Steve & Joan

Dear Francis and Family,

I had the privilege of knowing and working with Barb at Community Living Guelph Wellington, for many years.  She put her heart and soul into her work, her life and our friendship.  Her kind, caring and compassionate ways were received by so many.  She was respected by clients, staff and the community, at large.  Her hard work, dedication and loyality to so many causes will live on.  My heart breaks for her Mom, and family left behind.  They were the loves of her life.  My life has been forever made better by knowing Barb.  It's time for her to rest, now.
