VINNIE MIRIAM ROSS JULY 3, 1918 to JUNE 20, 2014 Vinnie has passed on recently and almost made her 96th Birthday. My youngest daughter and husband have planned to fly in for her Birthday on July 3rd and now Hillary is flying in on the 4th. As we are all getting on in years, the loss our Mum or Dad is a heart breaking time and we never fully recover from the loss. Our own mortality is only a few footsteps away. I came across a postcard Vinnie has carried in her handbag since May of 1988. Vin’s youngest daughter Robin, my sister passed on April 11 of 1988. I write to Mum, “Do not worry or be lonely. Time heals everything. Our Baby Robin is now an Angel, happy and having a well deserved rest. This life has many joyous and dreadful moments. The spirit sometimes needs more than life has to offer. Rest and heal yourself. Love, David xox.”
Vinnie and Uncle Les, knew most of you for a good many years and some of you had the pleasure of meeting my Gran Mrs. Coomber. My English and Russian Gran, passed on April 15, 1985 on the same day.They were both 85 years old. Uncles Les and Gran moved here in 1974, when this property was brand new. Vinnie called our flat her Shangri La. I will share a poem with you, I found in Vin’s handbag. ONLY LOVE. “Love was all, All you were living for and How you gave that love to me. I was part of you and you were all of me. Only love can make a memory, Only love can make that moment last, Love was all. There was a rage to live, Only then my heart was free. I was part of you and you were all of me.” Vinnie Ross. No date, the paper is faded and worn, approx 30 years old in Mum’s handwriting.
Thank you for being kind to Vinnie and nourishing her with your many years of friendship at Heaf Gardens. After the passing of Uncle Les, I came back to England to spend our last 5 years together. In 1971 Mum, dragged Robin and myself to Cornwall and we became citizens. We did not fully appreciate the adventure as teenagers. As an ole man, I can now appreciate Mums wisdom, her spirit of adventure and coming home to The British Isles. Please do not send cards of condolences or ask me about her passing. She suffered a stroke in hospital and looked calm, elegant and peaceful. I have arranged for a simple cremation and will honour Mums wishes, to place her ashes in Robins Grave at our local cemetery. I have freshened up Robins Grave Site with one dozen colourful Rose plants and bought a small stone memorial to place on the grave. A Mum with two Cherub Children on either side. If you wish to buy flowers for Vinnie, She loved Flowers. I always bought her flowers 2 or 3 times a week at Morrisons or LIDL’s. You can look for her gravesite after July 7, No.1033 or leave flowers at the door and I will take them down to the cemetery. I will not discuss my Mums passing with any of our other neighbours and if you do, Please tell them, I do not wish to hear their words of comfort or condolences. Vinnie knew all of you, who are named in my letter. She cared for you as her friend, as your Elder and she always had good advice to nourish your health with vitamins or healthy supplements. I will be celebrating our Vinnies life with Hillary, Devin and her husband Kevin in a few days. I am not going to mope over Mum’s passing and make things worse, than what they already are. This is a time for prayer, reflection, healing and enlightenment. Below are two of Vin’s favorite poems. Her Rupert Brooke, poetry was by her bedside in her Shangri La bedroom. She had all the pictures of her grandchildren, her daughters Robin and Carole, my father Peter and Caroles father Coldstream Guardsman Les Bailey. Peter passed on in 1971, Carole passed on in 2008 and Guardsman Bailey was shot dead at the Battle of Longstop in North Africa 1943. Vinnie had a full life and witnessed many miracles. She drove RAF trucks during the war, she was a nurse to the British Armed Forces, she was a caregiver to famous celebrities in Hollywood, she opened a health food shop in 1968, when everyone was eating unhealthy rubbish. Most of all Vinnie was a spiritual counselor to those seeking the Lord for the very first time. She read The Holy Bible to complete strangers near death, who were struggling with their passing and also comforted their loved ones throughout her life. Her life was devoted to The Lords Work. She survived and endured so much loss in her life, with just a glimmer of joy and happiness to keep her going. She taught me to be strong, to endure, to be compassionate to others and become a better human being in a very wicked world. “Even in the deepest sinking there is the hidden purpose of an ultimate rising. So it is for all people, from none is the source of light withheld unless he himself withdraws from it. Therefore the most important thing is not to despair.” Thank you forsharingyourlightVINNIE
Dear Kids,Nan fell in the bathtub over a week ago. She hurt her neck and I had the doctor make a house call. The doctor from Italy looked her over and said she had strained muscles in her neck. I have bought her two different whiplash neck braces to wear, but the problem is the fall has triggered some sort of minor stroke. She has not eaten a proper soupa or meal sinceSunday. The nurse girlfriend made Lamb Stew for Nan and she drank only the broth. I put the girl on the train Sunday, no more MDO’s for me.I have the doctor making a house call this afternoon and I am sure she needs to be in Hospital for I V Fluids and some sort of replacement meal I V supplement. I bought the Strawberry replacement meal drink yesterday, but she does not swallow very well and it not taking much water. Whichever doctor comes today, admitting her to Hospital may be the best solution until she gets more energy or whatever.Nan is very weak and cannot talk or pronounce words properly and has trouble getting comfortable. I just gave her a back rub and I administer Dr. Bach Rescue Remedy throughout the day. http://www.bachflower.com/rescue-remedy-information/. http://www.bachflower.com/original-bach-flower-remedies/#.http://www.bachflower.com/dr-edward-bach/. Please do not be heartbroken if your Nan does not recover from her ordeal. I am reluctant to send her to the Hospital, but she needs to be hydrated and given some sort of recovery meds immediately or I fear the end is near.If you telephone or Skype she can listen, but talking is very very difficult for her. I wish the Dago doctor examined her better, but the stroke symptoms didn’t turn up until 72 hours later. There is not a great option at the moment, because she hates Hospital and most older people get worse in their care. I will keep you up to date on Nans recovery after the doctor makes the house call today. I thought the swollen neck muscles were affecting her speech, but there are other tell tale signs of diminished health. The situation is not good and Nan is exhausted from her long long long life.As the body wears clothes, the soul “wears” the body.” http://hinduism.iskcon.org/concepts/102.htm.Love,Dado xox

The Hippocratic Oath
The Hippocratic Oath (Ορκος) is perhaps the most widely known of Greek medical texts. It requires a new physician to swear upon a number of healing gods that he will uphold a number of professional ethical standards. It also strongly binds the student to his teacher and the greater community of physicians with responsibilities similar to that of a family member. In fact, the creation of the Oath may have marked the early stages of medical training to those outside the first families of Hippocratic medicine, the Asclepiads of Kos, by requiring strict loyalty.
Over the centuries, it has been rewritten often in order to suit the values of different cultures influenced by Greek medicine. Contrary to popular belief, the Hippocratic Oath is not required by most modern medical schools, although some have adoptedmodern versions that suit many in the profession in the 21stcentury. It also does not explicitly contain the phrase, “First, do no harm,” which is commonly attributed to it.
I swear by Apollo the physician, and Asclepius, and Hygieia and Panacea and all the gods and goddesses as my witnesses, that, according to my ability and judgement, I will keep this Oath and this contract:
To hold him who taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents, to be a partner in life with him, and to fulfill his needs when required; to look upon his offspring as equals to my own siblings, and to teach them this art, if they shall wish to learn it, without fee or contract; and that by the set rules, lectures, and every other mode of instruction, I will impart a knowledge of the art to my own sons, and those of my teachers, and to students bound by this contract and having sworn this Oath to the law of medicine, but to no others.
I will use those dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according to my greatest ability and judgement, and I will do no harm or injustice to them.
I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.
In purity and according to divine law will I carry out my life and my art.
I will not use the knife, even upon those suffering from stones, but I will leave this to those who are trained in this craft.
Into whatever homes I go, I will enter them for the benefit of the sick, avoiding any voluntary act of impropriety or corruption, including the seduction of women or men, whether they are free men or slaves.
Whatever I see or hear in the lives of my patients, whether in connection with my professional practice or not, which ought not to be spoken of outside, I will keep secret, as considering all such things to be private.
So long as I maintain this Oath faithfully and without corruption, may it be granted to me to partake of life fully and the practice of my art, gaining the respect of all men for all time. However, should I transgress this Oath and violate it, may the opposite be my fate.

NHS hospitals ‘are where people go to die’
Mike Farrar, the former CEO of the NHS Confederation, has attacked the health service for failing to offer any alternatives to hospital to critically ill patients
Dr. Herta Oberheuser
|Dr. Herta Oberheuser killed children with oil and evipan injections, then removed their limbs and vital organs. The time from the injection to death was between three and five minutes, with the person being fully conscious until the last moment. During the Holocaust she made some of the most gruesome and painful MEDICALexperiments, focused on deliberately inflicting wounds on the subjects. In order to simulate the combat wounds of German soldiers fighting in the war, Herta Oberheuser rubbed foreign objects, such as wood, rusty nails, slivers of glass, dirt or sawdust into the wounds.|
Dr. Josef Mengele
|At Auschwitz extermination was conducted on anINDUSTRIAL SCALE with three million persons eventually killed through gassing, starvation, shooting, and burning. Josef Mengele was the chief provider for the gas chambers – and did well! When it was reported that one block was infected with lice, Mengele solved the problem by gassing all the 750 women assigned to it. Mengele did a number of medical experiments of unspeakable horror at Auschwitz, using twins. These twins as young as five years of age were usually murdered after the experiment was over and their bodies dissected.|
Dr. Carl Clauberg
|At Auschwitz Professor Carl Clauberg injected chemical substances into wombs of thousands of Jewish and Gypsy women. They were sterilized by the injections, producing horrible pain, inflamed ovaries, bursting spasms in the stomach, and bleeding. Men and women were positioned repeatedly for several minutes between two x-ray machines aimed at their sexual organs. Most subjects died or were gassed immediately because the radiation burns from which they suffered rendered them unfit for work. Men’s testicles were removed and sent to Breslau for histopathological examination.|
Dr. Karl Brandt
|In August 1944 Dr. Karl Brandt, Hitler’s personal physician, was appointed Reich Commissioner for Sanitation and Health, ranked as the highest Reich authority. He was authorized to issue instructions to the MEDICAL organizations of the government, to the party, and the armed forces, in the field of health. He participated in the euthanasia program, which involved the systematic execution of the aged, insane, incurably ill, or deformed children by gas or lethal injections in NURSING HOMES, hospitals and asylums. They were regarded as ‘useless eaters’ and a burden to the German war machine.|
