I Talked To My Mother Privately Today

What I mean by the above is that I travelled from Newmarket to Barrie Union Cementery to talk to my mother's spirit.

The gravesite was handsomely dressed with three flower arrangements from the funeral. Fresh sod was also laid over my father's grave but not my mother's yet.

The conversation on my part was short and emotional. This was the first time in a long while that I was alone with my mother.

As the door closes on an old life, another one opens on a new one. 

My relationship continues with her on a spiritual plane. (A History Behind Barrie Union Cementery) (Archiving Memories)

We Said Goodbye To Mom Today

I was pleased that two friends at work showed up for the funeral. They were Tony Vitullo and Donna Giglic. The rest of my fellow workers at TEO,  gave me a sympathy card and $100. This is helpful because I've been travelling between Brampton and Newmarket every day for the last week and a half.

It was also good to see the last two sisters/aunts left in the Peever Clan: Shirley Darragh(76)from Ottawa and Olive Buckley(86)from Toronto.

Friends and family of Roy Judges' (30 year companion of Doreen Barron) came out in large numbers because they knew and liked  my mother for many years.

My wife's brother(Rev. Joseph Noseworthy)prepared and executed the service in a thoughtful and moving way.

I did the eulogy from the heart which was received by my brothers and others. However, it was too long and not as funny as I wanted it, but I saw some tears on some people's faces.

Fortunately, we have hundreds of photographs through the 1930s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and the 21st century to remember my mother, my father, the Barron and the Peever families forever. We plan to transfer many of these pictures to a DVD.

This is all part of our history in Canada and on planet Earth during the 20th and 21st century. It's worthwhile remembering for all concerned.

Visitation And Funeral Times For Doreen Barron

The visitation will be tomorrow from 7-9 P.M. at the Taylor Funeral Home on 524 Davis Drive, Newmarket. The funeral is the next day on Tuesday, Nov/14/06. in the same place.

The Taylor Funeral Home is on the south side of Davis Drive, just before you get to Main street. Davis Drive is also Highway 9 which goes east off of Highway 400.

My mother suffered greatly from "rhumatiod arthritis" during the last five years of her life. I'm happy that she's now free from this disease and other infirmities. However, we'll miss her deeply because my wife and I visited her every two weeks and she treated Irene like a daughter.

Thanks you for your condolences and kind thoughts. (Taylor Funeral Home In Newmarket) (My Mother's Death Notice In The Toronto Star)

Remembrance Day
Mood:  sad

Lets remember all the victums and heroes of war from any country at any time. War continues to be a misery inflicted on the human race by evil beings.

The "Angel At Hotel California" will guide you to the websites. ("In Flanders Fields") (The Angel At Hotel California)

My Mother, Doreen Barron, Has Passed Away
Mood:  sad

With the family gathered around, my mother passed away at 12:00 P.M at South Lake hospital in Newmarket. She was 82.

She was a feisty soul who spoke her mind on just about any issue. However, she was generous and fair to her children in either reprimanding or rewarding us.

After my father's death, she had to rely on her initative to find work and pay the bills. She did this by working as a "Nurse's Aid" in Newmarket. The job was heavy and demanding, but she did it anyway.(My mother was less than five feet tall and slightly built.)

If she was cranky with one of us, she would say she's sorry. I must add that my mother suffered pain from Arthritis and Parkinson's Disease, that sometimes influenced her bahavior. However, she always tried to be sociable and make us a good dinner. Her apple pies were something to die for.

Doreen will be remembered as a loving mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother, to sons, David and wife, Irene, Robert and wife, Donna, Ted and wife, Daphne, daughter, Linda and seven grandchildren, Julie, Chris, Laura, Jenny, Michael, James and Greg.

My mother has gone to join my father(Eddy Barron) who died in 1968. He was a veteran of the Second World War. Please remember those who fought for their country. Tomorrow is Remembrance Day.

Healing Energy

Man isn't just a collection of cells. The basic nature of man is spiritual. We are individual "life units" in a physical bodies. This life unit is capable of emitting either white(positive) or dark(negative)energy.

The white energy can be directed at any body part with the thought "I feel alive". Often, this will produce a warm feeling or a tingle sensation. Some healing may occur.

In a similar vein, negative energy can be taken out of a victum's body as grief.

Different holistic practices approach spiritual healing in different ways. One uses the technique that works for him. Energy fields are not the same from one human to another.

We are either putting positive or negative energy in ourselves or others. On a physical level, this could manifest itself as wellness or sickness. (More Information On Spiritual Healing)

Laughter Is Doctor Feelgood's Medicine
Mood:  happy

Laughing is good for the soul and the internal organs.

Here are some great groaners from 2006:

1.  A jumper cable walks into a bar. The bartender says, "I'll serve
     you, but don't start anything."
2.  A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his arm and
     says: "A beer please, and one for the road."
3. Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other: "Does
     this taste funny to you?"
4. "Doc, I can't stop singing "Love Me Tonight." The doc, replies,
  "That sounds like Tom Jones Syndrome." "Is it common?" Well, "It's Not
5. Two cows are standing next to each other in a field. Daisy says
    to Dolly, "I was artificially inseminated this morning." "I don't believe
    you," says Dolly. "It's true, no bull!" exclaims Daisy.
6. An invisible man marries an invisible woman. The kids were
    nothing to look at either.
7. Deja Moo: The feeling that you've heard this bullshit before.
8. I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I
    couldn't find any.
9. A man woke up in a hospital after a serious accident. He
    shouted, "Doctor, doctor, I can't feel my legs!" The doctor replied, "I
    know you can't - I've cut off your arms!"(Sounds like Groucho Marx)
10. I went to a seafood disco last week...and pulled my love mussel.

The War Against Cancer
Mood:  on fire

It isn't about how medical experts can kill cancer cells in a body. That's their war. The real war is the personal one between you and those malignant cells that are trying to do a number on you.

You want to survive and to be healthy. The evil cancer cells just want you to die as miserably as possible. The battle to survive and to succumb is being fought in your body. There's will, emotion and thought connected with this whether positive or negative. Obviously, we want to be on the winning side. The side that survives. We want to kill those cancer cells with positive energy, thoughts, emotions and a healthy immune system that does its job.

We eat/drink good foods and exercise intensely to get the body's organs and glans working at maximum efficiency. We're warriors in a war. We just don't sit down and watch passively as medical treatment does something or nothing to our bodies.

Long before we step into a hospital or clinic for tests, we're fighting the battle against cancer. We're building a healthy body and a strong soul against the forces of physical destruction. Added to the above are strong prayers that enlist the powers of God to conquer this loathsome enemy in ourselves and others.

This isn't just a another job or duty. It's a crusade. (Different Ways To Heal) (The Advance Of Medical Technology Against Cancer)

Memories Of The Barrons, Peevers and Wilsons

We visited my mother at the hospital today. My brother, Bob and sister, Linda were there as well. This seemed to cheer my mother up because she got out of bed, sat in a chair and talked to us.

When we went back to our mother's house, we looked at photos of ourselves and our family when they were younger. We found rare pictures of our great-grandparents(The Wilsons who lived into their nineties)and my mother's family(The Peevers). My mother was quite a looker in the early forties. Check this out:

There is more on the Barron Family at Some memories never grow old.

My Mother Is In A Newmarket Hospital
Mood:  sad

I was quite distressed yesterday to discover that my mother's VON nurse called 911 to have her sent to South Lake hospital in Newmarket.

I went up yesterday to visit my mother(Doreen Barron)in emergency. She has serious health problems that haven't been fully diagnosed yet. I telephoned my brother, Bob and sister, Linda Wilkinson, yesterday. Today, I telephoned my aunt in Toronto(Olive Buckley) and my brother, Ted in Cobden, Ontario.

Certainly, mom could use some cheering up. If you know Irene Barron, please visit her in the Newmarket Hospital at the address and map below: (Map And Directions To South Lake Hospital)

A prayer for her would be appreciated as well.
