My uncle, John Frederick Barber, brother of my dad and his two brothers, died August 8, 1944,at the Falaise Gap in France.He was a Sapper with the Royal Canadian Engineers. My siblings and I never met our uncle John, but we knew him from our dad . We think of uncle John often and remember the ultimate sacrifice he, and so many other young men, made for us. We will never forget you.
