Maurice and Family,

Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us everyday,
Unseen, Unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear

May the Lord be with you. God Bless !

From: Perry and Gerry Tofin
Relation: Friend and former co-worker

We are very saddened to hear about Barb’s passing. Barb was a quiet, wonderful lady with a warm and loving heart. But, quiet waters run deep and those that befriended Barb knew they had a friendship for life. She also shared a wonderful sense of humor and I remember the occasions where she would peel off a star and paste it to the back of my nametag for handing in my time sheet – 100 percent correct! Barb put 101 per cent into anything she did and this included her family life. She was so proud of her two sons, her daughter and grandchildren! I will miss her annual Christmas card and emails, her gentle nature. Heaven has another angel and I know she will be watching over family and friends. May she rest in peace. As ever, Gerry.

I am truly saddened by Barb’s passing. She was more than a coworker and more than a friend. She was amazing, helpful and kind. Her passing leaves a void in our lives and in the hearts of everyone who knew her. Barb’s memory will always remain deep in my heart.

With deepest sympathy,
