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."

I Remember -- Patrick CARDY
By Anne FROST, Tuesday, May 17, 2005, Page S9
Anne FROST of Saskatoon writes about Patrick CARDY, whose obituary appeared on May 4.
I grew up in a small Northern Ontario town, with ritual piano lessons being my only exposure to classical music. These ended at the age of 14 at the request of my mother and my teacher! In my 30s, I offered to store a cousin's piano. Within a week of its arrival, I was back at lessons with a teacher who started me at the very beginning, following the Conservatory outline with exams at the Grade 6 and Grade 8 levels. In 1976, we moved to Ottawa and I continued my lessons. By now, I was at the Grade 9 level and a history credit was required. My teacher sent me to Carleton University to take Music 101. The professor was Patrick CARDY. It is no exaggeration to say that I owe my passion for classical music to him. With his great enthusiasm, he was the ideal person to introduce me to this new element in my life. After completing the Grade 9 exam, I gave my whole attention to pursuing a bachelor of music degree, which I completed in 1984. Since then, my life has been filled with the joy of classical music. I regret that I never thanked him properly.

Friday, September 2, 2005, Page S7
Politician born in Toronto in 1911.
He first entered politics in 1951, winning a seat in the Ontario Legislature by a slim margin. Four years later, he defeated Communist incumbent Joseph SALSBERG in the St. Andrew riding, which he represented for 20 years until his retirement in 1975. As the first Jewish Conservative cabinet minister in Ontario, Mr. GROSSMAN held a number of portfolios, including trade, housing and revenue, under premiers Leslie FROST, John ROBARTS and William DAVIS. He was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Ottawa for his work as the minister of what is now called Correctional Services, but fought his greatest battle against his own government by vigorously resisting the Spadina expressway. The highway was slated to run through his riding and he fought hard against it. He was the father of Larry GROSSMAN, leader of the Ontario Tories from 1985 to 1987.

John ARNUP, Lawyer And Judge (1911-2005)
Ontario Court of Appeal judge pioneered legal aid and was known for scrupulous integrity, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, October 29, 2005, Page S9
As a litigator, judge and advocate, John ARNUP spoke quietly, wrote eloquently and acted with integrity. He argued more than 50 cases in the Supreme Court of Canada, handed down 200 written judgments in his 15 years as a judge on the Ontario Court of Appeal, and pioneered universal legal aid in Ontario.
Eight years ago when the Ontario Legal Aid Plan was in danger of collapsing in the wake of Mike Harris's Common Sense Revolution, Mr. ARNUP, then 86, addressed his colleagues in a spontaneous speech that is still remembered for its persuasive eloquence. He expressed his abiding belief that providing legal assistance is a "matter of human rights and common decency." And then he rose to the charge. The government of Ontario seemed to "regard legal aid as equivalent to another form of welfare," he said. "And if welfare is going to be cut and public housing is going to be cut and health services are going to be cut, obviously legal aid is no different and it must be cut. This attitude has got to be fought on every front... I am going to stand on [the good ship Legal Aid] until it is rehabilitated or it goes down beneath the waters, but I am not going to give up."
John Douglas ARNUP was the eldest of six children of Jesse Henry ARNUP, a Toronto Methodist minister (who served as moderator of the United Church of Canada in 1945-46) and his wife Ella Maud (LEESON.)
He went to McMurrich Public School and Oakwood Collegiate Institute where, despite his slight frame and short stature, he excelled at basketball and hockey. He also edited the school magazine and was valedictorian of his graduating class.
Mr. ARNUP went on to Victoria College in the University of Toronto. A passion for playing bridge exacted an academic toll and he had to transfer out of honours. It was probably the last time in his life that he wasn't properly prepared for an examination. He majored in English and history, played softball, directed two musical productions and worked as feature editor of Acta Victoriana, the college paper, as well as sports editor of The Varsity.
He graduated with a bachelor's degree in 1932, followed by a law degree from Osgoode Hall in 1935, where he finished first in his class. He articled at Mason, Foulds, Davidson, Carter & Kellock (now Weir and Foulds) and was invited to join the firm after his call to the Ontario bar in 1935.
About this time he met Dora ULRICHSSEN, an executive assistant to the president of Lever Brothers. They were married on August 2, 1941, and eventually had four daughters, Judith, Carol, Katherine and Jane.
Historian Katherine ARNUP, a professor at Carleton University in Ottawa, told mourners at her father's memorial service how she and her sisters learned "the rules of evidence" around the dining room table. "We would engage in spirited discussions about politics and history -- arguments Dad always won, often by leaving the table to get the Encyclopedia Britannica, to substantiate his point. You learned never to fake it -- to know your facts and to let them speak for themselves."
Mr. ARNUP's poor eyesight made him eligible to serve in the armed forces during the Second World War. Instead, he worked as a civilian lawyer for the Wartime Prices and Trade Board.
He was named a King's Counsel in 1950, and became senior partner at Arnup, Foulds, Weir Boeckh and Morris in the mid-1950s, some 20 years after he had joined the firm. He had the earning power to help his younger brother Bill through medical school and to help his parents spend winters in Florida. He also acquired a 1939 Plymouth. This vehicle, which was the first car owned by any ARNUP, conveyed Friends and family to the cottage and newlyweds on honeymoons.
Allan McNiece AUSTIN, known to his Friends as "Bunny" or "Mac," arrived at the law firm as an articling student in 1952 and worked with Mr. ARNUP as a junior, an associate and a partner. In his eulogy, Mr. AUSTIN remarked: "Working for John was a pleasure because he was brighter than anybody else in the office, he worked harder than anybody else and his partners' meetings were infrequent, efficient and short."
As a lawyer, Mr. ARNUP had a quiet sense of humour and a sharp memory. During an examination for discovery 50 years ago, Mr. AUSTIN asked why a particular lawyer asked so many questions of fact. "That is his technique," replied Mr. ARNUP. "He turns over every stone on the beach." At trial, some two years later, the same lawyer was cross-examining the same witness. It was mid-afternoon and Mr. AUSTIN was suffering from the soporific effects of a good lunch. Poking him gently in the ribs, Mr. ARNUP whispered, " AUSTIN, wake up. He's getting to our part of the beach."
George FINLAYSON, now retired from the Court of Appeal, also worked for Mr. ARNUP as a junior in the mid-1950s. "He gave me a lot of responsibility and a lot of support and made sure I got credit for everything that I did. I found him a very good mentor."
He also acted against Mr. ARNUP many times over the years. "The nice thing about him was that he was always a gentleman. You didn't have to worry about him taking advantage of your inexperience," said Mr. FINLAYSON.
"He was a very straight-forward person. He laid his cards on the table and beat you on merit."
By the late 1950s, Mr. ARNUP was a leading counsel on just about any subject in civil law, known for the thoroughness of his research and the good sense and logic of his arguments, according to John MORDEN, another retired judge of the Court of Appeal.
They overlapped on the bench for seven years (from 1978-1985). "He was businesslike and courteous at all times. He had wide legal knowledge and he was efficient in conducting the hearings and circulating his judgments," said Mr. MORDEN. "It didn't matter what area of the law, he did whatever was required to get on top of it and to produce a very lucid, readable judgment. "
Mr. ARNUP also worked diligently on behalf of his profession. He was elected a bencher (or director) of the Law Society of Upper Canada (the governing body or Convocation of lawyers in Ontario) in 1952 and served as treasurer (the equivalent of president) from 1963-66. He had to step down when he was appointed a judge in 1970, but became active again as a life bencher when he retired from the court at 75.
"John ARNUP may have been the most effective treasurer the law society every had," according to Mr. FINLAYSON. Even as a bencher, he was very effective in resolving a conflict between the University of Toronto and the law society over who should be responsible for legal education -- the academy or the profession. "He got the parties together and got them to settle their differences and the law society stopped running its own law school and moved up to York University," said Mr. FINLAYSON.
His major achievement, however, was designing, negotiating and implementing a universal system of legal aid in Ontario. In his speech to Convocation in April of 1997, Mr. ARNUP remembered how it came about.
In the fall of 1963, shortly after he had become treasurer of the law society, he approached Fred CASS, then attorney-general of Ontario, and said: "We have a voluntary plan but it is not good enough.... If you put up the money, we will put up the people and we will run the plan, but you will always have somebody -- particularly from your financial department -- sitting with us and reporting to the government of the day."
A few days later, Mr. CASS and Mr. ARNUP went to see Leslie FROST, then premier of Ontario "and in succinct terms we put the proposition to him," said Mr. ARNUP. "He thought about it for about 15 seconds and he said: 'Go ahead.' "
After he retired from the bench, Mr. ARNUP wrote Middleton: The Beloved Judge, a biography of William Edward MIDDLETON , a former justice of the Supreme Court of Ontario. It was published by McClelland and Stewart in conjunction with the law society in 1988.
Mr. ARNUP remained in robust health well into his 90s, curling, participating as a bencher, and avidly following national and global affairs. The recipient of several honorary degrees, he was made an officer of the Order of Canada in 1989.
There were sorrows as well as accolades. Mrs. ARNUP suffered a brain aneurysm in 1990 and has been in ill health ever since. His daughter Carol died of cancer in 1997. Two years ago, Mr. ARNUP developed myelodysplastic syndrome, a bone-marrow disease that disrupts the production of blood cells.
The last comment Katherine ARNUP made in her eulogy was about how her father made his children feel safe. "You could always call on him for help, advice or wise counsel," she said.
Afterward, she realized that he made "everybody" feel safe. "You knew when John ARNUP was on the bench you were going to get a fair hearing and that legal aid was in good hands," she said yesterday. "He had old-fashioned qualities of decency and integrity."
John Douglas ARNUP was born in Toronto on May 24, 1911. He died on October 5. He was 94. He is survived by his wife, Dora, three daughters, four grandchildren and three siblings.

Beland HONDERICH, Newspaper Publisher (1918-2005)
Micromanager changed the Toronto Star from a scoop-an-edition news sheet into an information-based vehicle for an emerging middle class, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Wednesday, November 9, 2005, Page S9
An outsider who joined the Toronto Star as a "wartime replacement," Beland (Bee) HONDERICH worked his way up through the newsroom to become editor, publisher and ultimately chairman of the board of the country's largest and most colourful city newspaper. Its archives can boast staff bylines belonging to Ernest Hemingway (he likened it to "serving in the Prussian army under a bad general"), Pierre Berton, Gordon Sinclair and Peter Newman.
A micromanager and a curmudgeon who was feared more than he was loved, he transformed and modernized the Star, built a legendary newsroom in the late 1950s and 1960s, fought and won a newspaper war with the now defunct Toronto Telegram, bought up its circulation lists and its fleet of community newspapers, crusaded in support of diversity, national unity and cultural nationalism, and acquired Harlequin Enterprises, for many years a substantial cash cow for Torstar Corp.
"He took a paper that mattered and turned it into a great newspaper. I think his impact on Canadian journalism and his craft was huge," said his son, John HONDERICH, himself a former editor and publisher of the Toronto Star and now a member of the board of directors of Torstar Corp.
He was hard to love, but easy to respect, said Peter NEWMAN, editor-in-chief from 1969 to 1971. "I was always impressed by his wisdom, his determination and his optimistic view of the Canadian future. Unlike most publishers, his ideology went way beyond the bottom line. He never really understood the Canada that stretched beyond the shadow of the C.N. Tower, but he loved the idea of this country."
Beland (Bee) Hugh HONDERICH was born in Baden (near Kitchener,) Ontario, one of six children of John William HONDERICH, a Mennonite postmaster and railway agent, and Rae Laura (ARMSTRONG,) a Presbyterian. Religion was a contentious and omnipresent factor, according to Mr. HONDERICH's youngest brother, philosopher Edgar (Ted) HONDERICH. His father liked unusual names. He called his eldest son Loine and he named his second son after a physician named Béland in Montreal.
During the Depression, the family home was sold at auction when the mortgage holder foreclosed. Beland left school after Grade 8 to help support the family and began working as the Baden correspondent for the Kitchener Record (now The Record) in 1935 at the age of 17.
He did well covering two big fires in his community and made the move to the Toronto Star as a wartime replacement in 1943, earning $35 a week. He had been rejected from the armed forces because he had poor eyesight and a bad ear. When he got to the Star, he was told "all the good men were away fighting" and warned that there wouldn't be a job for him when they came back.
Shy, private, and insecure -- the poorly educated country man in the big city -- he "always felt he had to work twice as hard," according to his son, John.
Mr. HONDERICH told the journalist Doug (now George) FETHERLING in a 1983 interview for Saturday Night magazine that "you produced or else," explaining that he covered two speeches a day, delivering a few facts and a couple of "punchy" quotes. "It left a deep impression on my mind... what people are interested in is information." This was a lesson he would apply when he had control of the paper.
Far from being dismissed when peace was declared, he was promoted to financial editor in 1945, named editor-in-chief a decade later and elected a director of the company in 1957.
The Toronto Star is a private business like other newspapers in Canada, but it is unusual in that it is owned by a group of families and it operates according to a set of principles established by the late Joseph ATKINSON Sr. He became editor in 1899, quickly turned the struggling newspaper around and soon acquired a controlling interest. In 1911, Harry C. HINDMARSH joined the paper. He became Mr. ATKINSON's lieutenant and his son-in-law. Together, they turned the newspaper into the home of "razzle-dazzle journalism," ordering saturation coverage of big stories and indulging in huge headlines, full-page pictures and wacky stunts. They also supported the Liberal Party and social-welfare issues such as mothers' allowances, unemployment insurance, old-age pensions, minimum wages and the rights of labour unions. The combination of Christian piety, free-wheeling Fabian socialism and popular journalism was good for circulation and advertising revenues. By 1913, the Star was Toronto's largest paper and Mr. ATKINSON was its controlling shareholder.
He died in 1948, leaving an estate of more than $8-million, putting the bulk of it, including the ownership of the paper, into the Atkinson Charitable Foundation, which he had established six years earlier. In his will, he directed that profits from the paper's operations were "for the promotion and maintenance of social, scientific and economic reforms which are charitable in nature, for the benefit of the people of the province of Ontario" and he stipulated that the paper could be sold only to people who shared his social views.
Mr. HINDMARSH became president of the five-person board established to govern the paper and carry out Mr. ATKINSON's wishes. However, the Ontario government, led by Conservative Leslie FROST, and rival newspapers, including The Globe and Mail and The Toronto Telegram, argued that the foundation was merely a device to avoid paying succession duties on Mr. ATKINSON's estate.
The FROST government passed a law forbidding charitable foundations from owning more than 10 per cent of a profit-making business. The Star was given seven years to sell its business interests, with the foundation's trustees, officers and directors allowed to buy them, subject to the approval of the Supreme Court of Canada.
While this wrangling was going on, Mr. HINDMARSH dropped dead of a heart attack on December 20, 1956. The new board of the Atkinson Foundation was made up of Joseph S. ATKINSON (son of the late Mr. ATKINSON,) his sister Ruth HINDMARSH (widow of Mr. HINDMARSH), Burnett THALL, William J. CAMPBELL and Mr. HONDERICH.
In 1958, after swearing before the Supreme Court that they would uphold the principles outlined in Mr. ATKINSON's will, they were allowed to buy the newspaper. They paid $25.5-million in a leveraged buyout, which Globe business columnist Eric REGULY has called "the steal of the century." They put down $1-million in cash and secured most of the rest by selling debt and preferred shares to the public.
Mr. HONDERICH, who had been editor for three years and on the board for one, had no family money or other resources to draw upon. He was living in a duplex with his wife and three children. "We had one couch and one chair," said his son John. "The Bank of Commerce virtually put up all the money, but the security was the shares of the largest newspaper in the country."
In addition, Mr. HONDERICH took a personal loan for his 15-per-cent share, helped by advice and references from accountant, cultural nationalist and later politician, Walter GORDON. Today, Torstar Corp., the media conglomerate that owns the Star, is worth about $1.7-billion.
As editor and then publisher, Mr. HONDERICH built the great Toronto Star newsroom of the late 1950s and 1960s. He transformed the paper from a flashy, scoop-an-edition news sheet into an information-based vehicle for columnists and critics. He quickly realized, according to journalist Val SEARS, that the real market in the postwar period lay in finding readers among the young middle class in the suburbs who were moving up through the social strata.
They wanted context and information, not just headlines. Ron HAGGART worked as a columnist for the Star in the sixties. Mr. HONDERICH had the right ideas about how to change the Star, which was a stodgy, old-fashioned paper, according to Mr. HAGGART. "It was still a paper that believed the most recent event deserved a headline because it had happened in the last hour."
Among the stable of writers and editors Mr. HONDERICH enlisted or celebrated were: Pierre Berton as a daily columnist, Charles Templeton as managing editor, Nathan Cohen as drama critic, Milt Dunnell on sports, Gwyn (Jocko) Thomas on crime and Peter NEWMAN as Ottawa editor and editor-in-chief.
He loved to hire people, said journalist Robert FULFORD, who worked for the Star twice (from 1958 to 1962 and from 1964 to 1968), but he quickly grew bored with them. Managing editors were a notoriously endangered species, according to Mr. FULFORD, who once joked that after more than two years on the job, managing editors took on the look of "hunted animals." When he was having trouble sleeping at night, police reporter Jocko Thomas was said to recite the names of the more than 40 city editors who served during his long career at the paper.
Mr. NEWMAN spent seven years at the Star, leaving in 1971 in "frustration because [Mr. HONDERICH] was always stone-cold certain about what he didn't want, but not good at suggesting practical options."
He could be a bully. "He wasn't a particularly big man, but he looked big to his employees. He tended to tower," said Mr. SEARS, who worked for Mr. HONDERICH for about 25 years in a number of capacities, including Ottawa bureau chief and Washington correspondent. "He spoke low, but he made his position very clear. On the other hand, he was certainly the best publisher I ever worked for because he knew what he wanted and he would back you up."
Saying that he and Mr. HONDERICH fought a lot, especially when he was editor of the editorial page, Mr. SEARS said he always thought it was a mistake to try to outguess his boss. Mr. HONDERICH seemed aware of his power. "He once said to me, 'If I walk through that newsroom and I say to someone it is a nice day, by the final edition I have two full pages on the weather," said Mr. SEARS.
Stories abound about Mr. HONDERICH's tendency to micromanage. When he was editor, he behaved as though he was the publisher and when he became publisher and president in 1966, "he acted as though he owned the paper outright," Mr. FULFORD said.
Staffers were obsessed with anticipating his wishes, often with bizarre results. Somebody heard that "Bee" believed that a colour photograph had to have red in it, so Star photographers took to stowing red jackets in their cars and asking people to put them on before snapping their pictures, or so the story goes.
"Bee had a phobia about accompanying each picture in his paper with explanatory cutlines," recalled Mr. NEWMAN. "I got hell once for running an illustration of Gina Lollobrigida, the Italian film star, standing beside a male dwarf, because I had left out the 'left' and 'right' identifications."
During his years at the newspaper, Mr. HONDERICH oversaw the introduction of colour, the shift from an afternoon to a morning paper, a Sunday edition and the appointment of the first ombudsman at any paper in Canada. He was also a driving force behind the establishment of the Ontario Press Council. In 1976, he was appointed chairman and chief executive officer of Torstar Corp. He continued to serve as publisher until September, 1988.
Mr. HONDERICH married three times. His and his first wife Florence divorced in 1962. He married Agnes KING in 1968. Star legend has it that he called the paper from the airport as he and his bride were leaving on their honeymoon and asked for the front page to be read to him. She died of cancer in 1999 after a long and painful illness. "He was amazingly diligent in the way he cared for her," said his son John.
That same year he became engaged to Rina WHELAN, a widow he had met many years before (when both were married to other people) in the barbershop of the Hotel Vancouver, where she worked as a manicurist. "This is one of the great love stories," John HONDERICH said, "I have had the honour of standing up for him at two of his three weddings."
The HONDERICHs lived in the penthouse of La Carina (Rina's House,) a condominium she had developed and built on English Bay. "He was a wealthy man and she was a wealthy woman," commented Mr. HONDERICH's brother Ted, "and so both were under suspicion of being gold diggers."
Mr. HONDERICH became more left wing in his politics as he became older, said his brother. "All newspaper publishers are accused of being ruthless, but actually they are activists," he said. "They want to make things happen and they don't like things hanging on in an indecisive way."
Beland Hugh HONDERICH was born on November 25, 1918, in Baden, Ontario. He died yesterday in St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver after a massive stroke. He was 86. He is survived by his first wife Florence, his third wife Rina, three children, six grandchildren and one brother.

FROST, Richard Matthew
After a courageous battle with cancer, it is with great sadness, that we announce the passing of Richard Matthew FROST at Princess Margaret Hospital on June 28, 2005. Matthew was the beloved husband of Lorena (SWANSON,) cherished son of Richard and Nancy, dear brother of Jonathan and Carolyn (Jeff). Matthew was born in Hamilton, but spent most of his youthful years in Brampton. In 1989 he moved with his family to Winnipeg, where he attended Kelvin High School followed by graduation from University of Manitoba in 1994 (Political Studies) and 1998 (Recreation Studies). Matthew loved sports in any form. Throughout his life, he played hockey, baseball, golf, football and swam competitively. Always a passionate sports fan, he spent his professional life doing what he loved best - working first for the Manitoba Moose and then for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Matthew was full of dreams and aspirations with plans to ultimately build a career in sports journalism. He also took great pride in his wife Lorena and was able to celebrate the completion of her requirements for the C.M.A. designation a few days before he died. In the words of his brother, Matt's life was filled with love, success and the companionship of great Friends. It's not the story that's sad, just the ending. Matthew will be missed by his grandfather and wife, Walter and Helen ALLUM and his grandmother, Agnes FROST. Matthew was loved by his many aunts, uncles and cousins, particularly, Ryan and Sean JACKSON. Matthew was predeceased by his grandfather, Lorne FROST. We thank our family, many Friends, and Matt's colleagues for their support over the past 5 months. We want to also acknowledge the effort by the medical professionals at Princess Margaret Hospital.
