Heartfelt Gchi-Miigwech to All. The Osawamick family wishes to express our profound gratitude to all of the individuals and organizations that shared such open acceptance, appreciation and respect to Ron-bah Yellowman during his life. He passed away suddenly on February 25, 2017, and his Spirit journeyed toward the Western doorway. Ron-bah, who was a remarkable Oshkaabewis, shared many teachings with kindness. He did his best to lead by example and he helped many people who came into his life. In the last 13 years he and his wife operated the tourism business of Zaawmiknaang outdoor eatery, craft shop and tipi accommodations. He attended many powwows and conferences adopting families throughout his travels, as well as enjoying his many trips to New Mexico to visit his family. Ron-bah was an honorary band member of the Aamjiwnaang Anishinaabe Community and was recognized by the Graves and Repatriation Committee with the Bluewater Bridge Authority in Sarnia. He was the Cultural Coordinator for Anishinaabemowin Teg from 2011-2016 and cared for the Ateg Eagle Staff since 2010. Our family says miigwech to the communities of Wikwemikong, Aamjiwnaang, Cambrian College and Kumik Lodge in Hull-Quebec for having their flags at half-mast in honour of his life. We also thank all those who had ceremonies during the four days of his passing. We are in gratitude to the Midewiwin people, Raindance people, North American Church, Gordon Waindubence, our friend Marilyn Nadjiwan Rasi who stayed by Martina’s side during the 14 days. We are grateful to Martina’s children: Aileen, Rob, Lisa and Ozzie who provided love and support, as well as the support from Ron-bah’s children. To all those who helped financially, and all those who sent thoughts and prayers with cards, emails and Facebook messages to help Martina get through this, Miigwech!! To the Firekeepers: Rob Fox, Warren Sturgeon and Edwaa George, as well as Stuart Assiniwe for the donation of wood, Miigwech!! Heartfelt thanks to: Abor-Digital, Annette Peltier for all the obituary cards, Wiky Hock Shop and The Other Half Cafe for all the Semaa (tobacco) they donated, Rabbit Island Community Centre for the space provided for the wakes and to all the people who donated food: Wikwemikong Lands Department for all the fish, and all the people who helped throughout the week in Wikwemikong and in Aamjiwnaang. We say Gchi Miigwech!! We have been truly uplifted by the generosity and kindness from everyone who came together at this time. Ron-bah lived a good life; he followed the Mino Biimaadiziwin.


MCGREGOR–In loving memory of a kind and loving mother, Dr. Lillian McGregor, March 27, 1924 – April 20, 2012.

Always willing to help others,

When herself should be at rest.

She was the kindest of mothers,

Now amongst Heavenly blessed.

Love always, Denny, Dave and Ken

KAY–In loving memory of Kenneth Kay, August 1985 – March 2006.

No one knows how much we miss you,

No one knows the bitter pain

We have suffered since we lost you;

Life has never been the same.

In our hearts your memory lingers,

Sweetly tender, fond and true.

There is not a day, son,

That we do not think of you.

Mom and Dad

FOWLER–In loving memory of Gerald Fowler, who passed away March 21, 2014.

In my heart I hold a place

That only you can fill.

It broke my heart to lose you,

But you didn’t go alone.

A part of me went with you,

The day God took you home.

You left us all with a lot of great memories.

Miss you always. Remembered, forever loved.

Marion, Mike, Hazel, Rob, Kathy, Jeff, Sandy, grandchildren and great-grandchildren

The Garden of the Mind.

The mind is like a garden.

For years I have cultivated a garden and I have learned a lot of lessons from it.

  1. I never grew any fruits or vegetables in it that I did not first sow or plant and then cultivate.
  2. Although I did not sow weeds and grasses in it, it always produced them, and unless I hoed them down or pulled them up with the roots the weeds took over.
  3. If it did not rain I had to water the vegetables, or they would not survive, but the weeds always came back.
  4. It takes labor to cultivate the desired vegetables.
  5. It does not take labor to grow weeds. In the parable of the sower Jesus explains that the seed is the word of God, LUKE 8:11. In MAT.13:25-40 Jesus explains that an enemy, Satan, sows weeds. False doctrines (lies) are like weeds, they grow whether you like it or not. Sound doctrines (truth) are like desirable vegetables; they only grow when they are sown and cultivated. As there is no subject where the N.T. spends more space on then on warning against Satan and his lies (false doctrines), there is nothing more important for a Christian than sowing sound doctrines and weeding out false doctrines.
  6. It takes experience to learn the difference between weeds and vegetables (lies and truth).
  7. Everybody can learn this difference.
  8. The only guide whether a doctrine is sound or not is the Bible.
  9. There are all kinds of sincere, intelligent, well-educated theologians with a lot of Bible knowledge who believe false doctrines (grow weeds in the garden of their mind).
  10. Just like a garden can produce healthy vegetables in one spot and weeds in another the mind can at the same time be cultivated with sound and false doctrines.
  11. The only way to rid your mind of false doctrines is by recognizing them and destroying them by confessing those false doctrines as sin.
  12. The only way to have a sound mind is by bringing it in full agreement with what the Bible says on every subject.
  13. The way to success and blessings is by a) speaking God’s word, b) meditating on God’s word and c) obeying God’s word, JOSH.1:8. This is how the mind is cultivated with truth and so a life will produce desirable fruits.
  14. When weeds are allowed to grow they may choke the desired vegetables, LUKE 8:7. In the same way when false doctrines are not destroyed they destroy the desired fruits.
  15. False doctrines are sins that will keep you out of the Kingdom of God, GAL. 5:19-21. Unless you deal with false doctrines as a good gardener deals with weeds in his garden you will not enter the Kingdom of God. And that is thus says the Lord, Hank Reckman Prophet of Manitoulin, Search for truth Biblical Ministries, Box 210, M’Chigeeng, Ont. P0P 1G0.
