The couple’s four children stood together as lone son Jonathon paid tribute to their parents.
”You were like a lock and key: each pretty useless on your own. But together you unlocked the world for yourselves and for us and for so many others.”
He also announced the creation of a foundation in their name: The Honey and Barry Foundation of Giving, which an aunt has been asked to oversee.
Among the last to speak was Premier Kathleen Wynne who urged mourners to follow the couple’s example.
”When we reflect on the long legacy of good that Honey and Barry leave behind, may we all be inspired to live as they did. Full of compassion, hope and generosity.”
