FOSSACECA, Giuseppe Nicola
In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, Giuseppe Nicola, who passed away 11 years ago, March 16, 1994.
I'm still here, though you don't see me.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I will always stay.
My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I will never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.
I'm the salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on my grandchildren's face.
Just look at me, I'm every place.
Sei invisibile, ma sei sempre con noi.
Always remembered and missed by wife Gilda, daughters Carmen, Gabriella and son Lorenzo, son-in-law Peter, daughter-in-law Alexis, grandchildren, Joe, Nicole, Cari-Lynn, Nicolas, Lisa, David, Isabella, Adriana and Lauren.

NEAL, Durnin " Bucky"
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of a loving husband, father, grandfather and brother, on Monday November 7th at the age of 79 years, surrounded by family at Trillium Heath Care Centre, Mississauga. son of the late Jean and George NEAL of New Toronto, Ontario. Survived by his best friend and wife of 55 years Shirley NEAL (née FARR.) Cherished brother of Jean NEAL. Proud and loving father to his brood of 5 sons Terry Randy; Jimmy; Billy and David and two daughters Patty TUMMONDS and Kathy DE LA FOSSE. He devoted his life to his 7 sons and daughters, always giving much moral support in their chosen endeavors. "Grampa Buck" will be especially missed by his 19 grandchildren. Our sadness and grief is lessened somewhat by the memories that come from having been part of the very special life of this very special man.

After leaving the navy he joined his father in a family business, Geo. Neal and son and was a fixture on the Lakeshore in New Toronto for the next 39 years. Buck's passion, other than his family, was the Faustina Hockey Club where for 40 years he coached, was an active member and met many of his life long Friends. He will be remembered by his many Friends and colleagues at the Lakeview Golf Club in Mississauga where Buck worked and golfed, with wife Shirley, almost daily for the past 19 years.
Friends will be received at the Ridley Funeral Home, 3080 Lakeshore Blvd. W. between Islington and Kipling Aves., at 14th Street, 416-259-3705, on Friday Nov 11th from 2-4 and 6-9 p.m. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday Nov 12th at the Ridley Funeral Home, at 1 pm.

Popular horse rider dies after fall
'You couldn't meet a nicer person' said friend Karen FOSTER
'She never had anything bad to say about anything'
By Jim ALGIE, Sun Times Staff, and Don CROSBY, Sun Times Correspondent, Page A1
Patricia MOORE died doing what she loved.
"She loved her horses more than anything except her grandchildren," said a woman who works in the Holstein General store.
A well-known Mount Forest-area rider, MOORE, 45, died after a fall from her
horse during during barrel race practice at A-Bar-K Rodeo farm near Holstein early Wednesday evening.
MOORE had two grandchildren, one-year-old Breanna and five-year-old Alex. She and her husband Don took the grandchildren to Disney last winter. The couple were accomplished riders who competed at events in Canada and the U.S.
Last February the MOOREs held a fundraiser for Pat's father, Andy McROBBIE, to help raise money for a new house. His house was destroyed by fire.
"You couldn't meet a nicer person. She never had anything bad to say about anything, never heard her complain about work... a happy go lucky person," said friend Karen FOSTER. "It makes you wonder how life is fair."
MOORE had completed a practice run on a ranch partly owned by FOSTER.
The horse she was riding failed to stop as expected, witnesses: told police. The animal, which belonged to MOORE, ran onto a small concrete slab where it lost its footing and fell, Grey County Ontario Provincial Police spokesman Senior Const. Steve STARR said in an interview.
In the fall, MOORE struck her head on the concrete. She suffered what STARR described as a serious head injury.
MOORE had been part of a group which met regularly at the farm to practise competitive rodeo manoeuvres.
Other participants provided first-aid to the injured rider until paramedics, including an advanced life support unit from Palmerston, arrived.
Air ambulance took MOORE directly to Hamilton General Hospital at about 8: 20 p.m. She was pronounced dead shortly after midnight at the hospital.
The barrel race requires horse and rider to complete a timed dash, weaving among a series of empty barrels placed in a consistent pattern.
MOORE was not wearing protective headgear at the time of her fall, STARR said.
"We're just kind of in limbo here," said FOSTER, her voice cracking with emotion as she walked from the scene of the accident to the house where people who had been with MOORE the night before were grieving.

Holiday weekend off to deadly start
By Hank DANISZEWSKI, Free Press Reporter
The Labour Day weekend got off to a deadly start on Southwestern Ontario roads, with six people killed -- five in two head-on crashes and a sixth in a motorcycle crash last night in London.
London police said a motorcyclist died when he lost control and was thrown from the bike about 7 p.m. on Hamilton Road at the Pottersburg Creek bridge, east of Gore Road.
Earlier, four men died in a Simcoe-area crash and another in a Chatham-Kent collision.
The Simcoe crash occurred about 2: 40 a.m. on Highway 24, five kilometres north of the town.
Norfolk Ontario Provincial Police Const. Mark FOSTER said a five-tonne box truck was northbound on the highway when a southbound sports utility vehicle entered the north lane.
The two vehicles collided head-on and ended up in a ditch. The four men in the sport utility vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene.

Mona Cowan FOSTER
By Alison McARTHUR, Friday, January 28, 2005 - Page A16
Wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, nurse, storyteller. Born November 29, 1919, in Cowan's Creek, New Brunswick Died October 15, 2004, of lung cancer in Belleville, Ontario, aged Mona Cowan FOSTER welcomed everyone into her home in the same way: with a cup of tea or a glass of sherry, a happy smile and as many stories about New Brunswick as you would care to listen to.
Often, without being prompted, she'd talk about the ocean, the people who lived on its shores and a way of life that while familiar to her, was foreign to many of her visitors. For Mona, the Maritimes were her passion, inspiration and anchor in life. And it was these qualities that gave her the determination and strength to be the adventurer and survivor that she was.
Over my first glass of sherry with Mona she told me about her father and uncle cutting ice blocks from the Pokemouche River that would be used for cold storage throughout the summer. She then went on to explain that her mother would use these ice blocks to make homemade ice-cream every Sunday; as children, this was the biggest treat.
On my second visit, Mona told me stories about her days as a nurse in the province of Quebec. After high school she left the small village where she had been born to study nursing in Moncton. Upon graduation, instead of staying at the local hospital like most of her classmates, she craved adventure. And while sad to leave her beloved Maritimes she had a desire to see more of Canada.
So, unwilling to be bound by society's expectation of women at the time, she moved to Montreal and nursed at the Royal Victoria Hospital. It was only after the Second World War was almost over that she married her husband, Art FOSTER, and she returned to New Brunswick to raise a family of her own.
On my third and all subsequent visits, Mona talked about whatever subject was on her mind at the time. Inevitably, though, something about the Maritimes would be discussed. It was as though, because by now she was living with her daughter in Ontario, she was trying to make the Maritimes feel closer.
But not all of Mona's stories were happy. She endured hardship as well. She suffered from but survived ovarian cancer. She was widowed at an early age, leaving her to care for her still-young family on her own.
And not long afterward, she was in a horrific car accident that left her in hospital for almost a year. Mona was, however, never one to complain or bemoan life's twists, and even late in life she didn't mentioned the pain that these old injuries still caused.
With her family grown and her injuries fully healed, Mona again craved adventure, so she set off travelling. Over a period of about 10 years, Mona visited many countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, India, and England. Eventually, because of age and inability, her trips became less frequent but she still managed to return to New Brunswick for all but one summer.
In the last years of her life, Mona told more and more stories about her years in the Maritimes and her adventures around the world. She talked often about Friends and family she had known and the joys they had brought to her life. In fact, she would often tell the same story many times over, forgetting that she had already told it.
But no one ever corrected her.
We all knew that she got such joy from the telling and it was always good fun to hear it again, anyway.
Alison McARTHUR is married to Mona's grand_son.

ROSEN, Jack
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jack ROSEN at the age of 78 after a long and brave confrontation with a lengthy illness. Beloved husband of Honey ROSEN who was his constant and loyal companion, confidante and best friend throughout his life and illness. Jack cherished his three children Judy ROSEN (Chris BART,) Shelley ROSEN (Richard MOOR) and Allan (Lisa.) He was extremely proud of his twelve grandchildren, Kyle and Roberta FOSTER, Michelle FOSTER and Brent CLIFFORD and Jonathan FOSTER, Rafi and Gabriel MOOR, Matthew, Noah, Izaak, Alexander, and Max ROSEN and three step-grandchildren, Madeleine, Veronica and Miriam BART. Their amazing Zaidi was extremely delighted in celebrating the birth of his first great-grandchild, Coen FOSTER. As a doting father and grandfather, Jack provided the kind of comfort, advice and encouragement that enriched their lives and made them strong. He was the proud son of the late Israel and Rose ROSEN. Jack was born in Russia and was raised from infancy in Canada with his three sisters Eve GORDON (Jack,) Edythe BLACKSTEIN (the late Sam,) Sue FELDMAN (Mike) and his late brother, Percy ROSEN (Linda.) An accomplished businessman, Jack and his late brother Percy and brother-in-law Jack joined his late father, Israel ROSEN in the family business, I. Rosen and Sons, and built it to become one of Ontario's premier recycling businesses. One of his many accomplishments was conceiving and pioneering the now famous 'blue box' curbside recycling program which is used for curbside recycling in millions of homes around the world. For this achievement and many others, he received the first Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recycling Council of Ontario. Jack was a selfless and often anonymous benefactor for countless charitable causes and individuals. He was a past president of Beth Jacob Synagogue. He was renowned in the Kitchener community as a munificent contributor to major charitable campaigns. He became the first Jewish director of the board of a Catholic hospital in Kitchener (Saint Mary's) and was named an Honorary Director upon his retirement from the Board. Services are Monday, November 14 at 1 p.m. at Beth Jacob Synagogue, 161 Sterling Avenue, Kitchener. The Shiva will be held at 50 Blue Springs Drive, Suite 23, Waterloo. In lieu of flowers, donations to The Jack and Honey Rosen Endowment Fund, Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University, 416-485-8000 would be greatly appreciated.

CHAPPELL, Doris Philipa
Do's many Friends will be saddened to learn that she died, peacefully in her sleep, early Monday morning, September 5, 2005. Born in Toronto eighty-six years ago, Doris was a proud Canadian but a true daughter of Wales, her parents' family home. A staunch monarchist, she followed every activity of the Royal Family with great interest and supported the vital role it plays in the lives of all Canadians. The Canadian flag waved constantly over her home of eighty years at 35 Colin Avenue in Toronto. Do will be long remembered for her sharp wit and a wonderful sense of humour which served her well to the very last day. Nothing was so serious in life to prevent her from seeing the amusing side of an issue and her dry retorts and ready laughter were legend among all who knew her. A renowned storyteller, Doris had wonderful recall back to her early days on Colin Avenue when the stately trees were mere saplings and the paved roads were gravel covered. She and her sister Olwen were among the first children on the street and lived to see many generations grow up around them. A longtime employee of the Bank of Commerce, she was active with a wide variety of charities and an avid supporter of Timothy Eaton Memorial Church. For many decades she played bridge with the same group of Friends and, along with her sister, she was a gracious hostess known for entertaining in a grand and formal style with everything in just the right place and every nicety observed. Even while living at Claremont House for the past couple of years, Doris hosted frequent dinner parties for groups of ten or more in the residences' private dining room. It was simply the natural thing to do for this very vital woman. Doris was predeceased by her mother, Margaret Louise, father Edwin FOSTER and sister Olwen Margaret. In Doris' opinion, one of the joys of life was a wee dram of Glenfiddich, a tradition she upheld all her days. Her constant toast was, "Here's looking up your kilt" which seems like a fitting remembrance for this unique and remarkable friend. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 5-7 p.m. Thursday. Funeral service will be held on Friday at 11 o'clock in Timothy Eaton Memorial Church, 230 St. Clair Avenue West.
