Hello everybody in the eLearning community,
It is with great sadness and sorrow that I hare heard the passing our friend Barry Nicolle.
Barry was much more then a colleague, he was a friend, a confident and a partner in crime. It was with him that over 12 years ago, we planned to create a Canada-wide association for eLearning producers that became CeLEA. Though good times, rough times and even through health issues, Barry remain dedicate through the cause online learning in Canada. When I was the chairman, he was always my loyal friend and I hope through his passage as Chairman, I was the same for him.
He never faltered and always believed that we are here to create a better place for everybody. He was our rock, our moderator and the patient wise friend that through all the discussions and passionate point of views, reminded us that we need to focus on our dreams.
In all the sense of the word, Barry was a true pioneer, as he never needed the spotlight and did things because he thought they needed to be done.
I will miss you Barry.
All our thoughts go to his wife Eunice and his family.
