It is a year ago today, that an angel came and took you away
There is not a day that goes by, that we don't sit and wonder why
Why that angel had to take you away, when the Lord he could have let you stay
Day by day we hold you close, sharing the memories that mean the most
Sadly missed along the way, quietly remembered every day
Deep in our hearts your memory is kept, to love, to cherish and never forget
We love you Stevie (uncle Stevie).
Your Friends forever Mel, Gabe and Kevin BELANGER.

Man, 22, drowns at quarries
By Joe BELANGER, Free Press Reporter
A 22-year-old Caledonia man drowned Saturday while swimming in a popular private park in Innerkip, northeast of Woodstock.
Police did not release the man's name, saying his family had not been contacted.
Oxford community police said the man was visiting Trout Lake park, a privately owned swimming hole popular among young people, who also refer to it as the quarries.
The park was packed Saturday as people sought relief from the heat, which climbed higher than 30°C.
At about 8: 45 p.m., the man jumped from a diving board about six metres above the water.
"He went into the lake and didn't resurface," Const. Don McKENZIE said yesterday.
Innerkip volunteer fire fighters recovered the man's body and attempted to resuscitate him.
The man was taken to Woodstock General Hospital, where he was declared dead soon after arrival.
An autopsy is expected to confirm the cause of death.
The privately run park, which is a day-use and a camping facility, was open yesterday.
One park user said she heard reports the man did a somersault off the diving board and possibly hit his head with his knees on the way down.
Diving boards of various heights surround the lake, which was once a quarry.
There are no lifeguards at the park, but signs warn people to swim at their own risk.
Yesterday, park officials refused to discuss the incident.
When asked whether similar incidents had occurred at the park, a woman who answered the phone said: "We can't give you any information about (the victim's) status."
Meanwhile, a 67-year-old Romanian man remained in critical condition yesterday from injuries he suffered in a single-car crash that claimed the life of his 61-year-old wife.
Brandusa-Maria MOSNEAGU was killed Saturday in the noon-hour crash that occurred while the driver of the car in which she was a passenger attempted to pass another vehicle on Wellington Road north of Saint Thomas.
The car skidded out of control, rolled and caught fire.
Brandusa-Maria MOSNEAGU died in Saint Thomas Elgin General Hospital, while her 67-year-old husband, Niculae MOSNEAGU, was in critical condition at Victoria Hospital in London.
The couple was visiting from Romania, police said, and travelling with a 29-year-old North York man.

MORRISSEY, Hon. Martin Thomas Joseph
Of London, Ontario, passed away peacefully on October 16, 2005, with his family at his side at the age of 84. Martin is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Mary Kathleen MORRISSEY (nee CROCKER,) daughter Theresa and husband Stephen JARRETT, daughter Elizabeth and husband David BLACK, son Paul and wife Mary Jo, and daughter Deidre and husband Malcolm RUDDOCK. He is survived by two sisters, Josephine BRESNAHAN (Barry's Bay) and Bernadette BELANGER (Hamilton.) Martin is predeceased by his parents, Elizabeth Agnes (née O'CONNOR) and Martin Lawrence, and siblings, Leonard, Irene, Jimmy, and Rose. Grandpa will be sadly missed by grandchildren Adam, Michael, and Peter JARRETT; Jennifer and John BLACK; Patrick, Joseph, Brendan, James, John, Peter, and Luke MORRISSEY; and Callum and Emma RUDDOCK. He will also be missed by his large extended family who were always in his thoughts and prayers. Born August 29, 1921, in Madawaska, Ontario, Martin was the youngest of seven. Because his father died before his birth, Martin and his siblings looked to eldest brother Leonard to help their mother manage the farm. Martin's childhood was filled with hard work and laughter, and the simple pleasures of the Madawaska Valley. Martin enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941; upon discharge in 1945, he enrolled at Osgoode Hall Law School and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1949. Martin was employed at the Toronto firm of Slaght, Ferguson, Boland and Slaght, then in 1950 moved to London, joining the firm of Little Calder, which became Little, Morrissey, Gillespie and Reeves. There his practice was focused primarily on municipal and education law, as well as civil litigation and solicitors' work. Martin was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1974 and served as President of the Middlesex Bar Association (1975). In 1980 Martin was appointed to the Bench, serving the Peel Region in the County and District Court of Ontario and subsequently the Ontario Court (General Division) until 1994. Martin served his community through many organizations, including Clarkson Community Volunteers (1993-01), Credit Valley Hospital (Board of Directors, 1981-84), St. Leonard's House (Board of Directors, 1972-74), St. Leonard's Society of Canada (1972-75), House of Providence for Senior Citizens (Marian Villa) (Board Chair, 1960-62), Irish Benevolent Society (President, 1959-60), Canadian Federation of Newman Clubs (Vice President 1949-50), Knights of Columbus (Member, Fourth Degree), and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ontario (London Chapter) and Ontario Credit Union League (Honorary Solicitor). In 2001 Martin and Mary returned to London to be closer to family and Cedar Shadows, the Port Franks cottage that is a cherished legacy for his family. Martin was singularly proud of his family, from his wife's artistic talents and his children's professional accomplishments, to his grandchildren's educational and sports achievements, and his family is so proud of what Martin accomplished through hard work and determination. Visitation will be held at James A. Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, London, on Thursday, October 20 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. The funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael's Church, 515 Cheapside St. at Maitland, London, on Friday, October 21 at 11 a.m. (private interment). Parish Prayers will be held in the funeral home on Thursday at 3 p.m. Thanks to all who have supported Martin and his family over the last three years, particularly Dr. SWIFT and the staff in the Palliative Care Unit at London Health Sciences Centre, the staff at the Adam Linton Dialysis Unit, the staff at the London Regional Cancer Centre, and the Cancer Society volunteer drivers; also, we want to thank all of the caring St. Elizabeth nurses and personal support workers (particularly Sam, Bob, Nick, and Mike), and the staff of Sir Adam Beck Condominium. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to Sisters of Saint Joseph Hospitality Centre, 707 Dundas Street, London, Ontario N5W 2Z5, or the Canadian Cancer Society.

Family mourns crash victim
By Joe BELANGER, Free Press Reporter, Mon., December 26, 2005
Willy KLASSEN was the kind of young man who could put a smile on anyone's face.
Loved by all who knew him, the 20-year-old's passions in life included snowboarding, soccer, cars, Friends and family -- the simple pleasures learned growing up in a close-knit, hard-working family of 10 children.
Those people whose lives Klassen brightened celebrated Christmas with only his memory.
The East Elgin secondary school graduate was killed instantly Friday when the car he was in went out of control on Elgin Road just north of Aylmer and slammed into a tree after sideswiping another car it was trying to pass.
"You couldn't ask for a better friend," said Reuben WIEBE, who suffered a broken thumb and a concussion in the crash, of which he has no memory.
"He'd give you just about anything you'd ask for."
The driver of the 1997 BMW, KLASSEN's pal Dan FRIESEN, 24, suffered a broken collarbone and leg.
Police say speed was a factor.
The three were on their way to visit KLASSEN's brother, Henry, 22, a volunteer with the Malahide fire department.
When the alarm sounded, Henry was among the rescue workers who raced to the scene only to discover the victim was his brother.
"I found out when I got there," said Henry in an interview Christmas Eve.
As other firefighters worked to free his brother, Henry helped load WIEBE and FRIESEN into ambulances.
"You just do what you've gotta do," said Henry. "It doesn't really hit you until you sit down later and think about it."
Henry said yesterday his family is coping with the tragedy, surrounded by Friends.
Henry, whose parents, Frank and Susan, have 10 children between the ages of 13 and 30, lost not only a brother, but a buddy.
"He was a very happy guy and everybody just loved him," Henry said of his truck-driver brother, who lived in Malahide Township.
The youngest KLASSEN child, 13-year-old David, mourned the older brother he adored by writing a poem, Someone Always Has to Fall, its poignant words showing his struggle to understand the loss:
"It doesn't matter what the size
Whether it be large, small, or none at all
Always someone has to fall
You'll cry and cry but the pain is still there.
You'll have agony that no one can compare.
But yet it's true
That someone always has to fall
No matter who it is at all."
Today, Friends and family are to gather at the H.A. Kebbel Funeral Home on Talbot Street East in Aylmer for visitation from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The funeral is at 2 p.m. tomorrow at EMMC Church in Summers Corners. Interment is at Aylmer Cemetery.

SHAVE, Melville Sanders
Artist, teacher, a man of honesty and integrity, friend to all. Born May 21, 1934 in Toronto, Ontario. Raised in Regina, Saskatchewan. Died of cancer, Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, on January 12, 2005, at home, with his wife Beverley by his side. Mel leaves behind his devoted wife and soul mate of over 47 years and his brother Gregory of Edmonton, Alberta. He is predeceased by his parents, Meta and Jack SHAVE of White Rock, British Columbia and by his brother Barrie. Mel will be fondly remembered by many Friends, especially by his best friend and fellow artist, John BELANGER. An honours graduate of the Ontario College of Art in 1962, Mel worked in the advertising field as a layout artist for many years before joining the teaching profession as an Art and Advertising Design teacher. Since early retirement, Mel continued to pursue his love of wood and metal sculpture, but focused mostly on landscape oil painting. Mel was a warm, friendly, dignified person who valued beauty and precision. He met the cancer challenge in this way also - fighting every difficult step. Mel will be missed forever by those who loved him and his presence will always surround those who knew him. A Memorial Service will be held at the York Visitation, Chapel and Reception Centre, 160 Beecroft Road, North York (416-221-3404) on Tuesday, January 18, 2005 at 1 o'clock.
