Barbara Hall passed away peacefully with Tony and her family by her side on Tuesday afternoon.
We remember Barbara for her joy of life, the laughter that shone from her eyes and the love you could feel emanating from her whenever she saw Tony.
Barbara had symptoms of dementia for 23 years.
Their love and dedication for each other was channelled into creating BDAA to help others living with this disease.
Barbara always held our hands and she had a beautiful smile for everyone.
Our condolences and love to Tony and his family at this sad time.
We know that they take comfort from the fact that Barbara created a wonderful legacy, not only in her family with grandchildren and great-grandchildren but also in creating this charity to support others.

She is now in the arms of our Lord, whom she has trusted in since the age of nine.
She is no longer under the control of the Dementia that she has endured for over 20 years. She is now with our Saviour.
We are sorting out funeral arrangement in the next day or so and when we have finalised them, we will let everyone know.
We are planning a cremation a Canford, followed by a service to celebrate her life at Westbury Baptist Church and then food and refreshments. .
She touched so many lives that we want to celebrate that.
You are very warmly invited to attend either or both of these events when we’ve finalised them
