Went to the vet today....

So Trevor went to vet today for his needle and well Danny and I have been noticing that he hasn't been responding to any sounds lately.. You guessed it he's deaf.. The vet checked his ears and did a test to see if he had an infection but nothing so the only other thing is he can't hear... So now we have to teach him dog sign language.. I have been watching videos on YouTube but I think this will call for some help, not sure if I can train him myself but going to give it a try..

Some Dog Therapy today....

Ladder I bought today..











Leaves are all gone on my trees in my yard...


Gum..

Mom always loved gum and there was always a dish full of gum sitting on the table... Funny how kids go looking for it, so we have all said we would keep a thing of gum in our homes in memory of  mom.. Alyssa said where's great nannies candy...They all looked for my mom in her chair and bed wanting to know where she was...

Tribute to my Mom

Here is the tribute I read today at my moms  funeral...

I want to thank you all for coming today. My name is Diane and I am one of Flo's  daughters 
Mom was born January 21 1929 in berwick. She was a compassionate, caring, loving and strong person. 
As many of you know my mom has had a difficult time with her health over the years. She has suffered multiple strokes, was hit by a car ,not once but twice within ten years apart, and lost her eye sight.  She fought very hard to stay strong right up to her last days.
Even though mom ways a little lady she was the strongest woman I know and not afraid to speak her mind. I could tell you many stories about my mom.
One time after she had one of her strokes and they came back from the doctors, Judy had put moms music on for her. Mom says turn that up , that's no good like that you can't hear it. You people need the dr for your ears not me. Some of the things she used to come out with you just had to laugh...

She raised 8 children 5 girls and 3 boys, she helped take care of her grandchildren she had 18 and 25 great grandchildren and 1 great great grandchild. She was a member of the Salvation Army home league society , the Christmas kettle campaign and she attended church every Sunday up until she became ill. 

Our family always got together every Sunday for Sunday supper where Mom made sure every single person was fed before she would sit and eat. During this time the ladies would all go through the Sear catalogue which in our house was known as the bible. My mom loved her Sears catalogues. We would have every room decorated a thousand times and had a outfit picked out for everyday of the year. Some of you found a Sears Catalouge on your chair today in memory of my mom.. I can see her smiling now..

Mom went to live with my sister debbie and her late husband cliff, after dad passed away in 2008. During this time mom received the best care and took in many events. There was nothing that mom didn't attend. They were always on the go, I know my mom will be missed as a co- pilot. 

Mom worked at MW Graves Ltd in her early years, but she also had another job moving furniture. Mom would rearrange a room ten times in one week so if you came one day you can never expect the room to be the same when you returned. 
I remember a time she moved and redecorated  the Christmas tree 3 times.

I am proud to stand here and say on behalf of my family. Moms love of her life was dad they were married 60 years and even through all the strokes she never forgot his name. It was the last thing she said before she passed. They brought eight appreciative children into this world, who will deeply miss them both . We have lost a mother, heaven received another angel, but Dad has his corporal by his side again.  Thank you all for coming to share your sympathy and condolences today. She leaves us with memories we will always cherish and honour for the Rest of our lives...







Angel in heaven....

Today I will say good bye to one of the most important and strongest person I have ever known Mom the memories will always keep you alive in my heart. Please know I love you and will miss you, say Hi to Dad and Cliff for me. I not only have one angel in heaven I am lucky I have 3.
