Plucky cancer fighter dies in Lambton crash
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
He was going to play in the National Hockey League one day. His heart set on that goal, 11-year-old Jalen DAY beat a rare cancer that struck him at goalie camp in 2003.
But yesterday, members of Sarnia's hockey community were devastated to learn the boy known as Smiley -- the boy they had grown to admire -- was killed in a car crash Sunday.
"This is like the cruelest possible plot twist in a movie," said Paul BURGESS, leader of a weekly goalie clinic who shared laughs with Jalen on the ice Saturday.
"You're waiting for the beautiful ending to happen and, all of a sudden, something totally unexpected ruins everything," BURGESS said.
Jalen, who lived in Watford with his family, was one of three area children killed in crashes Sunday.
About 9: 30 a.m., two young sisters, Eva, 4, and Mary FROESE, 9, died on the way to church after a van driven by their mother went out of control on a steep hill near Port Burwell.
The girls' mother, Sara FROESE, three teenage sisters and a male relative suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said yesterday.
"It's so sad. It's just a freak, sad thing," said Elgin Ontario Provincial Police Const. Jennifer WILKS.
In Lambton County, Jalen's father, David, remained in hospital yesterday with injuries suffered in the crash that killed his son.
The vehicle carrying them collided with another on Petrolia Line around 7: 45 p.m. Sunday. A woman and her six-year-old son from the other vehicle were treated in hospital.
Jalen, sidelined for a year by cancer treatments, had been back to hockey for several months, first at the summer goalie camp, then playing peewee in Watford and attending BURGESS's clinics at the Sarnia Sports and Entertainment Centre.
Everything was going just as Jalen planned, BURGESS said.
"After he found out he had cancer (in August 2003), he told me, 'I'm going to beat cancer because I'm going to play in the National Hockey League someday,' BURGESS said.
"And when he first came back, his skating was suffering because the tumour had affected his right leg. But by Saturday morning, I had put him with the best skaters -- that's how far he had come.
Sarnia Sting goalie coach Larry LUCAS met Jalen at the 2003 goalie camp, where the young boy learned he had a rare form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma.
"Everybody is in utter shock," LUCAS said yesterday. "To see him beat cancer and then get a phone call at 7: 30 (a.m.) saying he got killed... I'm really struggling with this."
Jalen was considered a local success story after his rough battle with the brutal cancer that causes tumours to attack muscle cells. The cancer strikes about 60 children around the world each year.
In November 2003, while Jalen was in radiation therapy, the Sting put on a benefit hockey game before a packed arena, raising $25,000 for his family.
London Knights assistant coach Jeff PERRY, then with the Sting, helped organize the game between the Ontario Hockey League team and National Hockey League players.
Jalen dropped the puck.
Yesterday, a "devastated and numb" PERRY recalled the day.
"It was great," he said. "The highlight was Jalen sitting beside me in the dressing room... he looked over at me and said he didn't want the day to end."
Students and staff at Brooke Central school in Alvinston were grieving Jalen's death yesterday.
Principal Ann LARSEN said she couldn't comment personally, but read from a news release.
"Jalen... was always willing to share and express his humour and good sportsmanship with others," the release said.
"His recent success in overcoming cancer was wellknown in the community and his determination to overcome adversity was an inspiration."

Crash kills village man
Funeral held Tuesday, police continue investigation
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
Funeral Services for 20-year-old Christopher DAY of Creemore, killed Friday night when his car struck two horses on Fairgrounds Road, took place yesterday afternoon.
Mourners gathered at Fawcett's Funeral Home on Mill Street in Creemore to pay their respects.
"This is very unfortunate. Words can't say how I feel," Muriel DAY, Christopher's 73-year-old grandmother, told The Sun on Monday. "I've seen so many people die from this town over the years."
The crash which claimed DAY's life took place around 10: 40 p.m. Friday night. Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police Const. Mark KINNEY said that DAY was traveling northbound on Fairgrounds Road, about 1.3 kilometres north of County Rd. 91, when his black 1999 Pontiac four-door struck the two horses.
Someone from a home on Fairgrounds Road, KINNEY noted, called in the crash to 911 operators who dispatched emergency personnel.
"He'd left here to pick up his girlfriend from work at Tim Hortons in Collingwood," DAY said of her grand_son, who for the last couple years lived with his grandparents at their Jardine Crescent home in Creemore.
KINNEY said paramedics transported DAY to Collingwood General & Marine Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police were at the accident scene until almost 5 a.m. Saturday morning, investigating what transpired.
There was no information available Monday about how the horses got loose, who they belonged to or whether the owners will be charged.
DAY was the only son of Gwen DAY, who lives in Collingwood with her common-law partner Ron GROVES.
DAY's grandmother said he attended elementary school at Nottawasaga-Creemore Public School and later transferred to Admiral Collingwood Public School. He also went to Collingwood Collegiate Institute and Stayner Collegiate Institute.
Lately DAY worked nights at a New Lowell company building house trusses. But, his grandmother said, his real ambition was to become a chef. She said he did work briefly at the kitchens of some local resorts but left to find better paying employment.
DAY talked about attending a cooking program at Toronto's George Brown College some day, she noted. "That was his ambition -- but it's gone now." Another area of interest was computers.
"He was excellent with using a computer. He had a real knack he could make it talk to him," his grandmother said.
Police continue their investigation.
The family said that donations in memory of DAY can be made to any charity.
DAY was cremated and burial took place a Creemore Union Cemetery.

GRAY/GREY, Alice A. (née BELFRY) (1915-2005)
Alice GRAY/GREY led a rich, full life. Born to Dr. Roy and Ethel BELFRY, she grew up on Broadview Avenue and attended Withrow Public School and Jarvis Collegiate. At Jarvis, she met her husband, Aubrey who would be her best friend until his death in 2000. She was a lifelong supporter of the Victoria College at the University of Toronto, from which she graduated in 1936. Alice taught in Copper Cliff, before World War 2, and then when her children were older, she was at Thistletown Collegiate for 25 years, making history by becoming the first female head of a History Department in Metro Toronto in the 1960's, a feat of which she was extremely proud. Alice was a passionate supporter of Toronto defending it against all comers, just like her great grandfather in the 1837 Rebellion alongside William Lyon Mackenzie, and, as well, vigorously promoting its many cultural activities. She was a strong supporter of the University Women's Club being on the Executive for many years. Alice died peacefully on May 25, 2005 at the Trillium Health Centre - Mississauga Site having just celebrated her 90th birthday on May 11th. She will be greatly missed by her son, Paul and his wife Ruth, daughter Gretchen and her husband John DAY, and her grandchildren, Sarah and her husband Tim, Richard and his wife Helen, Charlie, Robyn, Genevieve and Amaranth.

GRAY/GREY, Alice -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Saturday, June 18, 2005, Page M4
Alice GRAY/GREY continued to celebrate the milestones of her marriage even after her husband died in 2000. "On their anniversary, I would take her over to Mount Pleasant cemetery for a picnic, with pâté and wine -- no, sherry -- and they could be together," says daughter Gretchen DAY.
Ms. GRAY/GREY and her husband, Aubrey, had a relationship progressive beyond its era. They split domestic duties and at no time did he see himself as the boss of the household, son Paul GRAY/GREY says. It was "a 50-50 marriage."
The couple met while attending Jarvis Collegiate Institute and, after drifting apart for several years, reconnected and married immediately before he shipped out to war in 1942.
On paper, they were not well suited: He was the sixth child of an Anglican family from Rosedale, and she was a Methodist proud of her ancestors' role in the abortive rebellion led by William Lyon Mackenzie KING.
But their differences didn't stop a strong marriage from developing, the children say. Both parents were teachers -- Ms. GRAY/GREY becoming the first female history department head in Toronto -- and both their children ultimately followed in their footsteps.
They describe their mother as being full of vitality. She was a very devoted Torontonian despite having moved to Etobicoke back when it was still a rural property, living near where Cloverdale Mall is now.
Ms. GRAY/GREY had a stubborn streak that showed in her determination to avoid being put in a home. She never forgave her doctor for insisting that she stop driving. Although she was increasingly frail, her mind remained sharp to the end and she set the goal of reaching her 90th birthday on May 11.
"We smuggled in gin and tonic and I bought her a new outfit and we brought her champagne," Ms. DAY says. "We rolled her up in a blanket and got her outside so she could have a cigarette."
She died of unknown causes on May 25.

Dusan POKORNY, Teacher, Diplomat And Writer (1919-2005)
Czech intellectual who served as his country's ambassador to India was blacklisted after Prague Spring of 1968 and came to Canada to teach for one year. He never went back
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, November 21, 2005, Page S11
He used his bulldog personality, love of writing, strong sense of justice and knowledge of philosophy and economics to change a system he believed could be better.
Among those in Czechoslovakia who worked for reform within the Communist regime that had ruled their country since 1948, Dusan POKORNY served as foreign editor of the weekly Literarni noviny, or literary gazette, prior to the Prague Spring of 1968.
"He was a very courageous man," said Antonin Liehm, a long-time friend of Mr. POKORNY's and a fellow editor at the gazette.
The term Prague Spring describes the period from March to August of 1968 when Alexander Dubcek served as the country's first secretary. During his term, Mr. Dubcek attempted to liberalize the country by introducing free speech and freedom of assembly to the nation, and reform its ailing economy, describing his vision for the country as "socialism with a human face."
The Prague Spring came as a culmination of growing restlessness and dissidence within the country, with the Literarni noviny one of the main agents of change. While it had an official circulation of 150,000, the copies were spread among far many more, and through Mr. POKORNY's efforts and those of others, brought new ideas to a cloistered country.
"After all these bad years, we knew we had to try and open the windows to the world, and to the European and the American and the world culture from which we had been isolated for 10 to 15 years," Mr. Liehm said.
To do so, literary gazette editors evaded official censorship by "using the language of the church," according to Mr. Liehm, with implication and innuendo.
In 1964, Mr. POKORNY left Prague and the gazette to join his newfound love, the Slovak writer Jaroslava Blazkova in Bratislava. While there, Mr. POKORNY earned his doctorate in philosophy from Comenius University in 1965 and taught until 1968.
The Prague Spring ended abruptly when tanks from Warsaw Pact countries invaded Czechoslovakia. One hundred people died and Mr. Dubcek and other reformers were held briefly in Moscow and then returned.
During the upheaval, Mr. POKORNY sought work in the West. He accepted a one-year contract with the University of Toronto in 1968, bringing his wife and two stepsons with him. He remained the rest of his life in Canada, teaching for almost 30 years at the University of Toronto in the department of economics and political science.
A shy, introverted man, he was passionate about his work. "He was well read," said Vassili Apostolopoulos, a former student. "During a five- to 10-minute conversation, he could refer to German philosophers, Mickey Mouse and composers -- all in the service of making a point."
During the '90s, Mr. POKORNY wrote and had published two volumes of what was intended to be a three-volume series, Efficiency and Justice in the Industrial World: The Uneasy Success of Postwar Europe and Efficiency and Justice: the Uneasy Success of Postwar Europe. He was unable to write the third volume about globalization and political ethics.
"He had the ability to integrate normative philosophy with an understanding of economics," said Professor Richard DAY, a long-time colleague of Mr. POKORNY at the U of T.
Always studious and a booklover, Mr. POKORNY once returned from an overseas trip with luggage 50 kilos overweight, arousing the interest of a customs official who found it difficult to believe the extra weight consisted of only books.
Born in Moravia, part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918, Mr. POKORNY was one of two children, whose father died when they were young. As a child, Mr. POKORNY taught himself English, becoming competent enough to win a countrywide competition in the language for school-aged children.
His English later helped him become ambassador to India. A passionate horseback rider, he took the opportunity to ride while there and fell from a spooked mount, injuring himself severely. He recovered well, except for his sense of smell, which he never regained.
The ambassadorship came at a time when Mr. POKORNY and many others found favour with the Czech government. This was not always the case. Intellectuals sometimes found themselves without jobs when their ideas proved unpopular to the government.
When blacklisted, Mr. POKORNY wrote anonymously for a press agency and eventually came to the Literarni noviny.
Dusan POKORNY was born in the region of Moravia, Czechoslovakia, on October 18, 1919. He died on July 11, 2005, at home in Guelph, Ontario He was 85. He leaves his wife Jaroslava and stepsons Andrew and Mark Stancek.

So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for awhile that we must part. So bless the memories within your heart. I won't be far away, for life goes on; So if you need me, call and I will come, Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near. And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear, All of my love around you, soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home".
