Thank you all for sharing such wonderful stories about your family, at the memorial service in Victoria last weekend. Afterwards I met Lorne Nicolson who told me about how much he enjoyed his time working with Dave in government. He's only one of many people I've spoken with who loved and admired Dave -- so even though I never met him, it almost feels as if I did. Certainly reminders of what he accomplished and the kind of person he was, are all around us still. Lorne also talked about his childhood friends in Vancouver who were swept up in the Japanese-Canadian internment, like my parents were. They had to move to Ontario after the war, so that's where I was born and grew up. Mom and Dad were scared to come back to the coast in case it happened again. As I left the service, it occurred to me that Dave worked all his life to make BC the type of society where things like that would never happen again. He wanted a place that was motivated by love, not fear. I can barely express how much that means to me.

We have lived in Victoria for 52 years. Dave Barrett was the best premier we have had during that time. Our condolences to his wife Shirley and family.

My heart goes out to the family for the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. Dave Barrett was and always will be my hero. He sparked my lifelong interest in politics and more importantly a long career in front line social services. Helping others is our highest calling and he led the way with vision, energy and humour. His legacy is all around us and we were blessed to have him.

Dave was a great man and a good friend who brilliantly changed our beloved province for the better in perpetuity. I have so many good memories of our times spent together. Each and every British Columbian should give thanks for his life as I certainly do. Thank you to every member of his family for sharing him and his incredible talents with us. May he rest in peace and be long remembered.

Dave was a much needed breath of fresh air for BC and did great things in his term of office. We need more Dave's. Remembered always.

Dave inspired me to get involved in B.C. politics. He was an excellent role model and really believed in fairness for all. My sympathy to his family.

Dear Shirley, Sending our heartfelt & loving thoughts to you and the family.
Mari and I remember well that fun, 2 family trip to Mexico. I remember sitting on the plane watching your "Rocking Chairs" coming across the tarmac to be loaded ! Only Dave could have swung that with his whit and charm. He always gave us something to smile and feel good about. All our love...Roma,Mari,Gareth,Diane (Wood-John)
