It is a very sad day today, to have to let everyone know that Barbara Hurst , has sadly passed away, after suffering from Cancer for so many months, the last month spent in the hospice in Leeds. I am so glad that I had met with Barbs on several occasions and we spent many hours laughing and messing about.
I went to see her at home before she went into the hospice and two weeks ago at the hospice , where she was still smiling even in terrible pain

I know that she touched many people ,with her wit and humour.

Sadly missed by all

I had been expecting the news but it has still left me in shock. Barbs was a life force.

I loved her dearly, everyone who met her loved her, many more people who never knew her loved her too. She was generous, wickedly funny, noisy, caring, brave. She seemed to be unstoppable. She's going to leave a terribly big gap here.

My deepest sympathy to Jon and to all their extended family.

Such a shame. Barbara always had a joie de vivre that shone through in her comments and posts. I for one will miss her on the site.

Despite living 2,000 miles apart, and never actually meeting Barbs face to face, I considered her as my very best friend. Not a day went by when we didn't have a chat via ePZ private messaging, I am going to miss her, the contact and the love of life that she showed dearly. Sincere condolences to Jon, who was her backbone until the end, and all her family, she is already missed.

It was a joy to know her through her witty and insightful comments on my pictures and by the odd PM. We never met but her personality shone through on this site.
A sad loss for sure and my best wishes and thoughts go out to her family and friends and especially to the members here who were fortunate to know her personally
RIP Barbara

I'm afraid I never knew Barbara… I often saw her comments on other people's images, but our paths never crossed. I had no idea she was so ill.
She was clearly a very popular lady, and will be greatly missed by many people here. I feel it's my loss that I never knew her.
