She gave me hope and inspiration in such a dark time. I will always love her for that! Her smile lit up the room, when my family and I had needed it.

Melissa and Madison LouzonMy heart is very heavy hearing of "Auntie Barb's" passing. Barb was our angel of mercy when Madison was diagnosed with a rare childhood cancer. She extended her compassion and care to us every day and went above and beyond the call of duty. When I lost my father to cancer Barb and her partner Angela made the road trip to Chatham to personally extend their sympathy. Words cannot even describe how I felt and was touched forever by her actions and her words. Heaven doesnt need another angel but did they ever get an amazing one today. Holding her family in prayers... Sincerely, Melissa and Madison Louzon

Dwayne, Robyn, Brontae & Dalan FrookWe wish to extend our deepest condolences to all the family, friends and co-workers of Nurse Barb. As with many entries here, Barb was our first Nurse Case Manager when our son was diagnosed with leukemia 5 years ago. She always had a way about her - a way that made you feel comforted and less confused during a time when you thought that your were living in a nightmare. She was by our side during many "Dalanroid" outbursts in PMDU - and was always there with her spunky words of wisdom. We shall miss seeing her in the halls of PMDU, with that signature 'walk on a mission.' Godspeed
Martha and Alexander RobinsonI hope that all those wonderful kind words and memories about your lovely Barb bring some comfort to your family. Barb was indeed special throughout Alexander's treatment which began 13 years ago. I was always happy to see her smiling face and her strong hugs got me through more than a few rough days. Alexander was not very generous with his hugs but every time he'd be sedated or asleep, Barb would sneak in and give him a quick hug. We were just remembering that last week with a smile. Our prayers are with you and a Mother Angel was born on Sunday, Mothers Day.
Lindsay, Mike, Felix and Courtlyn FrechetteFrom my entire family to yours - we wish to extend our deepest condolences for the loss of a lovely and caring woman. We will always remember the times that Barb helped us - even though she was not our nurse case manager, she helped us when Julie was not there and always made sure to stop and talk to Felix when we were at the PMDU. She will be sadly missed by very many people, but she touched so many lives and will be remembered always.
Daniel, Rachelle and Roch EthierWe met Barb when my son Daniel was diagnosed with osteosarcoma back in September 2011. We was truly a god send. She took care of Daniel and us like we were her own family. It's thanks to her that my son was able to convince me to get a dog. She always had a smile and knew how to make you laugh. She was one of a kind. God is very lucky to have her with him. Our condolescences to the family. We will keep you in our prayers.

She was Kaitlyn's case manager for almost 3 years while she was being treated for Leukemia. Barb always had a smile and a sarcastic remark for Kait when we came to the PMDU. She kept us both smiling as well. She had such an important role in her patients lives and has left a lasting impression on ours. We can only imagine that she will be terribly missed, but may you find peace in knowing the legacy that she has left behind. With our thoughts and prayers, The Bida Family
Angie, Rick, Alex, and Kelsey WozniakOur deepest sympathy goes to all of you -- Gary, Rebecca, Eric, and families. My earliest memory of Barb's kindness is of a time just after we moved to Lambeth in 1991, and became backyard neighbours with the Dagelman family. It was my birthday, and I was feeling a little sorry for myself because we were new to the area and my parents and friends lived far away. I called a local radio station to dedicate a birthday song to me, and mentioned that I had called in sick for work but wanted to hear a favourite song. Then I just pouted around the house. A short time later, my doorbell rang, and there stood Barb with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. She'd heard me on the radio and went out of her way to make me feel better. Her generous and loving spirit will be greatly missed by all who came to know her.
Heather WhyteTo Barb's Family: I am deeply sorry for your loss. We worked together at Children's Hospital and I fondly remember Barb as a very caring and compassionate woman with a huge heart and the brightest smile. She was very dedicated to all of her patients and their families, and so committed to making sure they were very well cared for. She was such a delight to work with. Barb will be very sadly missed by all of us who knew her. I shall always fondly remember Barb - she was amazing. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Heather
Nancy Gregg, R.N.To Gary and family: I am so sorry to hear of Barb's passing. Barb faced her illness with great courage and determination. She knew the battle she had to fight and she met it head on.

Take care and know that we are available if ever you need to chat. Nurse Nancy
