Barb will be forever remembered by her warmth and loving kindness. What a true blessing she was to have in my life and one of the few people I ever knew that could touch so many people with her heart full of love. A true gift to the world. Although I know she will be missed by many, it's comforting to know she is resting peacefully and will no longer have to struggle with her health or memory. Thanks to Sadi for remembering me at this difficult time and letting me know what had happened. I'm so sorry for your loss and send you all my many thoughts and prayers. Love, Beth

Scott and I will always remember the fun birthday party we had at your house for Scott and Sadie with both your Mom and Dad there. That is a very nice picture of her. You are a very special family for giving her the love and attention she needed and may she now rest in peace. Take care. Don, Marie, Scott and Dana.

Our loving thoughts are with you and your family. Barb was a spunky lady who loved to laugh and enjoy life. We all have fond cottage memories of both Barb and Morris, all of us laughing on the deck, drinking wine and enjoying each others company. We send our love and support to all. Lee, Brett and Ryan

Ian and Julie, My prayers and thoughts are with you and your families. I share your grief but rejoice in the fact that Auntie Barbara now has eternal peace as she has gone home to be with our true Father. I am blessed to have fond memories of the times that I ventured up to Mount Forest and enjoyed the company of you and your parents. Auntie Barbara was special to me as she had the inherent threads of Emson that reminded me so much of my late mother in her words and body language. She always made me so welcome, even if I was just passing through on a business trip without notice. We really didn't know each other when I first visited Canada in November 1986 but her warmth and our family ties made it as if we were never separated by so much time. I look forward to being with you both again soon to share some of the memories and fun times. Love Paul.

Ian & Family, we are so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. Our deepest sympathy goes out to you and your families.

Though I did not know Mrs. Watts personally, I would like to express my sympathy your loss after reading of it in the newspaper. When you lose someone dear to you, the pain and grief can seem unbearable. As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, I draw comfort from the Holy Scriptures and I would like to share a wonderful promise with you. The Bible book of Revelation chapter 21 verse 4 shows that “God will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” Imagine, a time where there is no sickness or death! Please be assured that our loving Creator understands what you are going through and may you find comfort in His promise for the future.
