  4. I’m really sorry to hear of the passing of my dear nursing classmate Barb. I know that the last few years have been difficult but at least she is free of the pain and suffering. I will remember all the good years we had together as nursing students and over the years as we matured and raised our families. I really appreciate having seen her at our nursing reunion in the fall. My thoughts are with the family in their time of sorrow.

  5. My deepest sympathy to the Kalinowski and Carefoot families on the loss of Barb.
    Lauren and Jillian, you are in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your Mom.
    I will miss Barb. I often ran into her in the evenings as we each walked the hills of Hawkwood or dropped our girls off at Ballet Arts Centre. Her beautiful smile and thoughtful intelligence would make my day!
    Rest in Peace Barb.

  7. My sincere condolences to Barb’s family at this difficult time. I met Barb in nursing school where we shared many days filled with fun and laughter. Although we didn’t visit very often in the early years of our career and raising daughters, when we did meet up it was like no time had passed. I reconnected with Barb during the years she battled her illness. We shared many meaningful, honest conversations about life, death, family and love. I will always value the memories of our friendship and her life.

    I met Barb in a difficult time in my life and she was my gift to help me through it all. Barb was truly was one of the most selfless people I know. When she was going through very tough times she would ask about others. That was because she really cared. I will miss her but I have wonderful memories. God rest your wonderful soul Barb. I know that you are still “taking care of things” in your new life.

    Love ,
    Marlene
