We have happy memories of Auntie Pearl and Uncle Gord. The one that comes to mind is our wonderful Thanksgiving weekend gatherings at the cottage. Auntie Pearl would show her skeet shooting skill as well as making sure the family shared a meal at the cottage. Auntie Pearl always had a smile on your face!
We are thinking of you, Cathy and Rob,Christine,Bill and Anne and Don, and all the grandchildren.
Brian and Annette Brama, Torstan,Lydia and Petra

Since the day I was born a great many of my happy memories involved the Barber family. When I was about 3 my Da taught me our home phone number, my grandparents and Gord and Pearls because if I needed help, call the Barbers. And I always could. In a time of cell phones. I don’t know many phone numbers anymore. But this was the last working number I could call.
This story always made Nana laugh. And it made Pearl laugh later when I asked her about it. Gord and Pearl were down at my grandparents. And a time was being had. My Mom started to teach Gord how to play the spoons. The evening wore on, and my Mom was still trying to teach Gord how to play lol. Pearl had enough of the spoons and told Gord she would be in the car waiting to go home, it was time to leave, and out she went. Gord was having a good time and wasn’t ready to leave till he had mastered the art of spoon playing .
Soon it’s 1 or 2 am and Pearl is driving up and down Hwy 7 past the house trying to give Gord a subtle hint that she wanted to go home lol. She told me once if she had known he was going to be so long she would have come home to bed lol. I don’t know what time the arrived home, but she never did leave him to walk. Lol
Pearl was so strong , and loving and fun. My heart is breaking for all of you as I write this, because it makes it so final. But I know Pearl has moved on to bigger and better things. Free of all her earthly restraints. I loved Pearl and Gord very much thank you for sharing them with me. Love you all. April Clarke
