I am sadden to hear about the passing of Barry, especially since we were suppose to meet a couple of weeks before this sad event.

We attended the same high school ( CCHS ) and lived in the same town Saint Lambert, QC before his family moved away. In the past 6 years we reconnected and had fond chats about the old days.

I am, as sure as many others, are going to miss him and his sense of humour and our chats of the old days...

Jo-Anne my thoughts and prayers go out to you.
