So sorry to hear about Barry's passing Lorraine. he was so generous to me teaching me to drive on the highways and following me night after night to make sure nothing went wrong. We spent many nights talking on the vhf and telephone to help us pass the nights away and I will miss his dry but funny sense ofhumour. Sandra and my thoughts are with you and your family
