  5. I knew BJ from her time in BC in the 1980s, and we reconnected through Facebook some years back-she was my “Words with Friends” partner! BJ was always such a sweet, gentle soul and I was so happy when I heard she had found someone special and was finally living the life she deserved.She will be missed by all who knew her-condolences to all.

  6. I knew BJ sometime in 1997 and like so many others, I found her to be a gentle soul who was also very curious about the world around. She made a good partner for David and he managed to create a relationship that lasted approximately 22 years(Dave can correct me on this, if necessary)which is quite an accomplishment for anyone. While I liked for from the first time I met her, I never really got to know her until the last ten years when my father was diagnosed with cancer. When both of my parents passed away in 2015, we got to know each other much much better. While we wish that she could be hear, she will live on in people’s memories and their hearts.

    We were so shocked last Wednesday to hear of our dear friend, BJ’s, passing and send our deepest condolences to you, David. We have been friends with BJ for 40 years since our time together in Hazelton, BC. In such a small community friends became family and we spent a lot of time together. BJ had a special bond with our daughter from the day she was born and at her first birthday party in 1984 she gave Tara a stuffed animal that was never out of her hands and travelled everywhere with us. Our daughter treasured “Binky” and still has him. This is one of many special memories our family has of time spent with our loving, caring friend, BJ.
    In these past years, we have kept in touch almost daily through Facebook and messenger. BJ was on top of world events and passionate about justice; she was inspiring and so positive about life. We were thrilled she found you, David, and the happiness you both deserved. BJ was radiant during her years with you, despite the health issues she bravely faced. Knowing how much you loved her gave her all the strength she needed and more. We hope your special memories of your time together will help you at this very devastating time❤️

  16. Hello David.
    We have not met yet but I grew up with BJ in the Summerlea Subdivision in Welland and of course, went all through school with her as well.
    We reconnected awhile back due to FB after many years apart.
    May you cherish the memories you behold from the precious time you spent together.
    So wonderful to find real love in one’s lifetime. Not everyone does.
