Well ..yes I know this is late in posting...but as of July 16th, 2007... my husband Barry (Forsyth) is now a foreman at Highland Valley Copper Mine. This is a job that Barry was not sure if he wanted ... he's a 'people person' with a heart for his fellow workers... and was afraid that if he put put on the foreman's hat he would seem a different person...to the friends he's worked with for years. He is a man who gives and always wants to give a hand to all....which has sometimes caused him to be hurt, but he'd have it no other way. "Generous" could be his middle name, as Barry would give the shirt off his back if it would help you out.

Barry's brother David always knew Barry had a higher calling - he told Barry for years that he had it in him to be a millwright ...and that Barry should go for his ticket ... which Barry finally did ...and in 2002. Barry became a red seal ..which meant he could now do his trade in any province. I know that it was the the support of our children and family members - and the prayers of Miles and Barb ( his sister and brother in law) But the mine manager also saw Barry's the ability to be a person who could move up ... that becoming a foreman would not go to his head - inflate his ego. Barry's desire is for his crew to be the best that they are ...and he will help ..teach and bend down and work along side of these men .

As his wife I am so proud of him ...he has the heart and smarts to be all that he has been asked to be . We made a life changing decision to start our new life living in our fifth wheel recently - to live and laugh ...and not count all the material things that some think are all - important....we are not putting off and waiting for that one day dream ..we are going for it now ...


Congratulations Barry (husband, father,Papa, friend!) WE LOVE YOU WITH ALL OUR HEARTS!
Thanks Barb ...for this awesome layout and honoring your brother.....
