Fern Carlene Robson
The children of Fern Carlene Robson of Burriss, Ontario, on behalf of themselves and in the name of the entire family, announce her death on December 11, 2009.
There will be no formal service at Fern’s request.
Thank you to all who have shown kindness and thoughtfulness to our family.
The moment when, after many years of hard work and a long voyage
you stand in the centre of your room, house, half acre, square mile, island, country, knowing at last how you got there, and say, I own this, is the the same moment the trees unloose their soft arms from around you, the birds take back their language, the cliffs fissure and collapse, the air moves back from you like a wave and you can’t breathe.
No, they whisper. You own nothing.
You were a visitor, time after time climbing the hill, planting the flag, proclaiming.
We never belonged to you.
You never found us.
It was always the other way around.
~ Margaret Atwood
