A Voice From The Past
Today, I received an e-mail and a school picture from someone that I haven't heard from in forty years. He got my name from the Google Search Engine and it really warms my heart to think I'm part of somebody's treasured memories.
Here's the letter:
Once, I was watching television and you were being interviewed. I thought, I gotta contact that guy.
Recently, I was looking at some old photographs from Barrie District Central Collegiate. That made me think of you again. I thought, I gotta contact that guy. Today, I googled your name and that is why you are getting this message. I recently sent The Barrie Examiner a photograph ( which I will
attach to this communication) and asked if they are interested in a "where are they now?"- type
of story. The publisher passed it on to their editor, but I haven't heard anything since. I'm in that photograph. If you are the same David Barron who went to Barrie District Central Collegiate
at about the time I did .... congratulations on all you have achieved! Judging by your website you're a happy man and that is excellent. So congratulations once again! If you are not the David Barron I think I am writing to, please accept my best wishes and have yourself a great day".
Here's the school photo. I'm in the third row fifth from the left. Well done George.
