Man charged with murder in stabbing of taxi driver
By Unnati GANDHI, With a report from Jennifer LEWINGTON, Wednesday, September 7, 2005, Page A14
A 42-year-old Richmond Hill taxi driver was stabbed to death during an apparent robbery very early yesterday in Don Mills, an area residents call quiet and safe.
About 3: 40 a.m., a man living in the apartment unit next to where the taxicab was parked was awakened by two short blasts of a horn.
"There was a whole lot of commotion and I woke up and my thought was, 'People are moving out this early?' Because the door is open and there's people going in and out. I didn't realize they were police officers," said the 44-year-old salesman who resides at the Don Mills Road and Lawrence Avenue apartment building. He did not want to be identified.
From his bedroom window, he could see the taxi driver's head leaning in the driver's seat.
"I was groggy and sleepy. I looked out and saw a guy sitting with his head tilted toward the passenger side. I think, you know, he's taking a snooze waiting for his fare. I didn't think too much of it."
An hour later, about 4: 45 a.m., police took two young men into custody from inside the building before releasing them a few hours later.
Toronto Police Constable Kristine BACHARACH said the two men were no longer considered suspects.
Police then arrested an 18-year-old man and charged him with second-degree murder. Constable BACHARACH said officers aren't looking for more suspects.
She added that police will be going through the digital video footage captured from inside the cab for any other clues.
Morteza KHORASSANI was taken to Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre where he was pronounced dead. He is the city's 51st homicide of the year.
The resident described the area as typically quiet. "The sixth floor is all elderly citizens," he said. "This used to be a safe neighbourhood. But people are already thinking of moving. It only takes one [incident] to convince a lot of people to move."
Another resident, who lives on the fourth floor, said he is thinking of moving out in the next month or so.
"I can't be bothered with it. I've learned from past experience not to mingle in other people's affairs," said the 53-year-old man who also did not want to be identified.
"There was a lot of noise all summer long. Not so much arguments, a little bit of swearing."
The man said he moved to the area five years ago because he had heard good things about it.
"It is fairly safe. It's just something that happened out of the blue. It's one of the safest areas that I've been around in Toronto."
A taxi driver who was in the area yesterday said he couldn't believe what had happened.
"We have to work 12 hours a day, seven days a week, and we are hardly paying our bills. No vacation, nothing. And then things like this happen. It's very sad," said Hamid, who would give only his first name.
"I work 84 hours a week. I should be a millionaire by now, but I can't even pay my bills."
As he left a meeting of the Toronto Police Services Board, Mayor David Miller said: "I am very concerned about the safety of our taxi drivers. It is a very dangerous job and it is very difficult in the middle of the night. The initiatives that have been taken, especially the cameras, are quite effective. Obviously, the circumstances of this one [incident] will be reviewed and there is anything more that can be learned we'll learn from it."
Shane SMITH of Toronto has been charged with second-degree murder and is scheduled to appear in court today.

--In loving memory of John LEWIS (O'TOWADJIWAN,) a Great Dad, Grandpa, Great Grandpa, who passed away January 16, 2003.
Beautiful memories are wonderful things
They last till the longest day.
They never wear out; they never get lost
And can never be given away.
To some you may be forgotten
To others a part of the past.
But to us who loved you and lost you
Your memory will always last.
We cannot bring the old days back,
When we were all together,
But the laughter we shared and loving thoughts,
Will live with us forever.
Missed too much to ever be forgotten, by Thecla and John TURCO, Patricia, Henry and Family, Jason, Steve.

And if I go
While your still here
Know that I live on
Vibrating to a different measure
Behind a thin veil you cannot see through
You will not see me
So you must have faith
I wait for the time when we soar together again
Both aware of each other
Until then, live your life to it's fullest
And when you need me
Just whisper my name in your heart
Collen Corah
A tree will be planted as a living memorial to Janice LEWIS.

There is probably a kitchen in heaven right now with a tea pot on the stove and some good Cape Breton fiddle music playing and love, laughter and memories being shared between Marg and her predeceased parents Maude (HINKS) and John Henry LEWIS, brothers Jim and Stan LEWIS and sister Mary BAKER. She was also predeceased by two great men who came into her life and brightened it in their own loving ways, husband Raymond SUTTON, husband Kenneth COOPER. Friends may call at the R.D.

LEWIS, Larry W. (October 13, 1942-September 18, 2004)
A special smile, a special face, A part of our family we can't replace, They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal. But neither time nor reason helps the emptiness we feel. Each morning when we wake up, We know that you are gone, No one knows the heartache, As we try to carry on. The special years will not return, When we were all together, But like the love within our hearts, You will be with us forever. We'll see you on the other side. Love Cathy, Heather and Millie.

Great Uncle of Hannah, Miles, Nathaniel, Gwen, Kyla and Emma. Pete was born in Hillegom, The Netherlands and was 11 years old when his family immigrated to Canada. They settled in the London area with the dream of building a business. Pete's destiny was to work in the greenhouse. From a very young age, he loved to accompany his father to the greenhouses where he worked. So while his parents worked elsewhere to provide a steady income, Pete was instrumental in the growth of the family business from its inception. Eventually he took over the business from his parents and has steadily and successfully built it to what it is today. Through the years he employed many family members and students and taught them an admirable work ethic. He worked right along with his staff and found it very difficult when he became ill and could no longer work. Pete was an admired Boy Scout Leader and a founding member of the London and District Florists Association. Special thanks to Dr. KERR, Dr. PERERA and Mary Liz. Your compassion for and care of Pete during his four years of treatment greatly helped ease his journey. Also thank you to the special women (ie Nurses) of Victorial Hospital who helped him through his final week. Pete touched the lives of all who knew him! He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. Cremation has taken place. Memorial visitation will be held in the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North (2 blocks north of Oxford) on Thursday from 6: 00-9:00 p.m. as well as one hour prior to the memorial service.

In loving memory of Harold Joseph, a dear father and grandfather, who passed away 2 years ago on March 18, 2003.
He is gone but not forgotten
And as dawns another year
In our lonely hours of thinking
Thoughts of him are always near.
Many think the wound is healed
But little they know the sorrow
That lies in the heart concealed.
Silent are the tears that fall

LEWIS, Harold Joseph
In loving memory of Harold Joseph, a dear Dad and Grandpa, who passed away March 18, 2003.
A life unselfish, for others you lived
Not to receive but always to give.
Helping, willing, thoughtful and kind
Beautiful memories you left behind.
Sadly missed along the way
Quietly remembered every day.
No longer in our lives to share
But in our hearts, you are always there.
Those special years will not return
When we were all together
But with the love within our hearts
You will walk with us forever...
Sadly missed by Cheryl, Rob, Jordyn, Danielle, and Taylor

FARMER, Kenneth Pentin (July 26th 1912 to January 12th 2005)
Born in Westmount Québec, son of the late Nora (PENTIN) and John FARMER. Brother of Madeleine and Florence and the late Eric and Bud. Ken was the much loved husband of the late Mildred Lorayne STRACHAN (1994) for 49 years, and adored and proud father and father in law of Howard (Alice), Ian (Sue), Cindy, and Pam (Tom LEWIS.) He will be greatly missed by his eight grandchildren Dan, Sarah, Colin, Laurence, Iain, Geoffrey, David, and Michael. He was also uncle to many nieces and nephews. Soon after his birth, Ken's family moved to Ste. Anne-de-Bellevue. Here, Ken could be seen spending every spare moment playing tennis in the summer and hockey in the winter on the local rink or the frozen ice of Lac St. Louis. Ken studied at McGill University (Bachelor of Commerce 1934), and received his C.A. in 1937, after which he joined the firm of McDonald Currie until retirement in 1974. It was at McGill that Ken became a hockey legend, where, with the McGill Redmen he skillfully won many championships. (McGill Sports Hall of Fame 1999). In 1936 while playing for the Victorias, he was asked to join the Canadian Olympic Hockey team which won the Silver medal in Garmich, Germany. When the war broke out in 1939, "the Major" proudly served with the Royal Montreal Regiment and later with the Manitoba Dragoons until May of 1945. His children and grandchildren will always remember "Grandpa's" wartime stories. From 1953 to 1961 Ken was President of the Canadian Olympic Association and later President of the Commonwealth Games. He and Lorayne were fortunate enough to travel the world through his association with these games. In 1980, Ken was made a member of the Order of Canada celebrating his life long contribution to amateur sport. Over the years, Dad also worked diligently for such charities as The Quebec Society for Disabled Children and the Commissionaires. Honor, truth, and respect, were the values Dad always lived by and, by example, passed on to his children and grandchildren. Ken shared many happy times with his Friends from afar, Montreal West, Lake McDonald, The Laurentian Lodge Club and The University Club of Montreal. Unpretentious to the end, we are certainly going to miss you Dad/Grandpa. Farewell "LeClou", "Mighty Midget". We love you. Funeral service will be held Monday, January 17th at 2 p.m., St Philip's Anglican Church, 25 Brock Avenue North, Montreal West, Québec. In Lieu of flowers, if desired, donations may be made to The Quebec Society for Disabled Children or another charity of your choice.

Body of woman found near Toronto high school
By Jeff GRAY/GREY, Thursday, May 19, 2005, Page A9
Toronto police homicide detectives are investigating after the body of a woman was found in a Scarborough park early yesterday morning, just metres from a youth facility and a high school.
The woman has been identified as Champagne LEWIS, 25, of Toronto.
Police were called to Galloway Road Park, near Galloway Road and Kingston Road, at about 3: 40 a.m. after neighbours complained about a disturbance.
Investigators cordoned off a wide area around the body, forcing the nearby East Scarborough Boys and Girls Club to close and move its daycare to an elementary school.
Police said Ms. LEWIS had suffered "obvious signs of trauma." A postmortem examination is scheduled for today.

Jim ERSKINE, Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner: 1920-2005
To A.Y. JACKSON, the man who cracked the Great Canadian Art Fraud case of 1964 was always 'my inspector.' The policeman known as 'Big Jim' went on to head the Ontario Provincial Police
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, June 10, 2005, Page S9
In November, 1962, Ontario Provincial Police officer Jim ERSKINE started on a new case. J. Russell HARPER, then curator of Canadian art at the National Gallery of Canada, had asked the force to investigate a flood of Canadian forgeries of the works of well-known artists, including the Group of Seven.
After a lot of dogged legwork, Mr. ERSKINE, appointed two years earlier as the Ontario Provincial Police's first head of its new anti-rackets squad, eventually cracked the case that came to be known as the Great Canadian Art Fraud.
It counts as only one highlight of Mr. ERSKINE's distinguished 38-year career with the Ontario Provincial Police. As well, he saw a hostage-taking incident successfully resolved, oversaw emergency response at the Mississauga train derailment and ended his career as the Ontario Provincial Police's commissioner.
Then premier William DAVIS appointed him commissioner, as well as head of a campaign begun in 1983 to end drinking and driving. "He was a professional police officer," Mr. DAVIS said. "It was his life. He was completely dedicated."
Mr. ERSKINE's break in the art-fraud came, according to a May, 1964, issue of Canadian Weekly, when a ruckus broke out at the Toronto art-auction house, Ward-Price. Some in attendance at a sale questioned the authenticity of Group of Seven works on offer. The scene led one purchaser of a work purportedly by Group of Seven artist J.E.H. MacDonald to take it to the Toronto Art Gallery, now the Art Gallery of Ontario, for authentication. When the purchase proved fake, the gallery informed Mr. ERSKINE, who immediately seized paintings and records from Ward-Price.
With the combined efforts of Mr. ERSKINE, artist A.J. CASSON and National Gallery conservator Dr. Nathan STOLOW, 91 paintings were confirmed as forgeries. The Ward-Price records showed that the fakes were sold on behalf of Leslie LEWIS, who operated a studio gallery at the back of Ward-Price. Mr. LEWIS had in turn obtained some of those works from another dealer, Neil SHARKEY.
Further investigation led to three painters, all of whom had created the works for other purposes and did not know their paintings were being passed off as being from more prominent artists. The two dealers pleaded guilty and were jailed.
A headline from a story about the fraud in an April, 1964, issue of Maclean's referred to Mr. ERSKINE as a "smart cop." As a result, Mr. ERSKINE came to be good Friends with some members of the Group of Seven, including A.J. CASSON, with whom he worked on the case. In addition, he was at Fred VARLEY's bedside at the artist's death and gained the confidence of A.Y. JACKSON.
Born in Guelph, Ontario, to Scottish immigrants, James Laird ERSKINE was the oldest of four children. His stonemason father worked on many buildings in and around the city, including some for the University of Guelph and the stone wall along the Niagara River.
Mr. ERSKINE obtained a Grade 10 education and, after serving underage in a field ambulance and medical corps and then an artillery reserve, joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, serving as a flight engineer on Lancaster bombers during the Second World War.
When stationed in England, Mr. ERSKINE was wounded twice, once while helping defuse bombs. One of the bombs exploded, Mr. ERSKINE blacked out and awoke to find himself among dead comrades.
Once on leave in London, he helped rescue children from a bombed school. Many students were killed or severely injured. "It took me years to get over that incident," he told the Guelph Daily Mercury in 2000. "I would wake up when I heard my own kids crying and break into a cold sweat."
Upon his return from the war in 1945, Mr. ERSKINE joined the Ontario Provincial Police. As well as solving the Great Canadian Art Fraud, he negotiated the release of four children being held hostage near London, Ontario, by an armed, escaped convict, Donald CLINE.
The con demanded cash but, according to one of Mr. ERSKINE's sons, Bruce, the incident took place on the weekend during a time with limited banking hours and no automated teller machines. To get the cash, Mr. ERSKINE borrowed it from a local businessman. After collecting it, the then-deputy commissioner and a colleague sat in the back of a cruiser and wrote down the serial numbers of each bill so they could be traced later.
During the incident, the hostage-taker held one of the children to the window, threatening to kill him. A gunshot sounded, the window shattered and the child fell. "My father said he felt sick to his stomach because he thought the child had died," the younger Mr. ERSKINE said.
In fact, the gunman had shot out the window above the child's head and simultaneously dropped the child.
Before handing over any money, Mr. ERSKINE insisted that three children be released. Once he received his booty, Mr. CLINE released the fourth and oldest child before taking off. He was later arrested.
At one point, tiring of the constant media swarm during the lengthy standoff, Mr. ERSKINE sent another officer out for coffee, instructing him to go in a marked cruiser with lights flashing, sirens screaming and tires screeching. The press fell for it and followed like bees to honey.
At 6 feet 5, Mr. ERSKINE was commonly known as "Big Jim." He also happened to look a lot like Errol Flynn. Once, in Los Angeles to bring an extradited man back home, he found himself constantly approached by curious women on the lookout for movie stars.
In November of 1979, 17 years after beginning on the art-fraud case, Mr. ERSKINE once again played an important part in a major Canadian event. A freight train carrying volatile materials including propane, chlorine and caustic soda left the tracks in Mississauga. Some of its chemical contents exploded and caught fire, releasing flames and vapours into the air early on a Sunday morning.
Fearing for the safety of the city's residents, officials ordered approximately 218,000 people from their homes in the largest peacetime evacuation in North American history. It lasted close to a week.
As director of emergency response, Mr. ERSKINE worked closely with Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCALLION during the disaster. That closeness became literal. The mayor had sprained her ankle and could not walk well, so Mr. ERSKINE picked her up and carried her to one of their daily press conferences.
Throughout his career, Mr. ERSKINE took on several leadership roles, including president of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police in 1976. Appointed a deputy commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police in 1975, he became commissioner in 1981. He retired in 1983.
As well as heading the drinking-driving campaign, Mr. ERSKINE was for 10 years the honorary colonel of the 11th Field Artillery Regiment.
With his death, the man who solved so many mysteries may have left one behind.
According to his son Bruce, Group of Seven artist A.Y. JACKSON always called Mr. ERSKINE "my inspector." Once, when the younger Mr. ERSKINE visited Mr. JACKSON, the artist confided that he knew the truth about the mysterious 1917 death of artist Tom THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and the only person he had ever told was "my inspector." When asked about it, Big Jim ERSKINE denied knowing anything.
James Laird ERSKINE was born on September 8, 1920, in Guelph, Ontario He died on May 22, 2005, in Mississauga. He was 84. He leaves his wife Jeanette, sons Bruce, Rick and Barry, and one sister. His oldest son Daniel died last fall.

James CADDELL, Soldier And Adventurer (1973-2005)
Former Canadian Forces peacekeeper with a taste for adventure who did a tour of duty in Bosnia and performed tsunami-relief work in India was overcome by altitude sickness in Bolivia, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, October 22, 2005, Page S9
A year ago last September, James CADDELL and his wife, Tara NEWELL, left their government jobs and set off to backpack around the world. Last Saturday, having trekked through five continents, they arrived by local bus in Bolivia, the poorest country in South America. They stopped in Tupiza, famous for its chunky red mountains and salt lakes, and as the final hideout for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
They found a hotel, explored the market and went to a restaurant. Mr. CADDELL felt unwell at dinner and went back to the hotel. He jumped in the pool, emerging quickly because the water was so cold, and tried to warm himself in a very hot shower.
Before the night was out, and despite Ms. NEWELL's efforts to get him medical help (which included carrying her husband into a local hospital), he was dead.
She thought he had food poisoning or a virulent stomach virus. In the logistical and linguistic nightmare that followed, Ms. NEWELL managed, with help from the Canadian government, to transport his body to a hospital in La Paz, the capital. That's where she learned that her husband had died from altitude sickness, accelerated by the rapid changes in his body temperature from the swim/shower routine.
Mr. CADDELL, who was extremely fit, had survived a year-long tour in Bosnia as a Canadian Forces peacekeeper. As a couple, they were adventurous but prudent travellers who were well aware of the dangers of altitude sickness. Nine months earlier, he had suffered from altitude sickness on Mount Everest, but that was above 5,000 metres and Tupiza was below 3,000 metres.
Nobody Ms. NEWELL beseeched for help in the hotel recognized the symptoms. Even worse, there were no oxygen masks or canisters not even in the local hospital.
"In hindsight, it all seems perfectly clear. I was lying next to him while he was suffocating and I didn't know it," a heartbroken Ms. NEWELL said by telephone from La Paz.
His father, Andrew CADDELL, a senior policy adviser in the Department of Foreign Affairs, said: "James and I talked a lot about the possibility of him dying abroad as a soldier. He always said, 'If anything happens to me, I don't want people to be overwhelmed with grief because it was something I wanted to do.' And that is how I feel about this trip. He and Tara knew there were risks and they went ahead and did some wonderful things."
James Lawrence CADDELL was born on March 16, 1973, to Norma LEWIS, a journalist and communications lecturer (she covered John Lennon's "bed-in" for peace for the Montreal Gazette in 1969) and Andrew CADDELL, one of her former students at Dawson College. As a child, James grew up with his "hippy" mother in the Huntington area of Quebec near the American border and then in upstate New York with her husband, Tom CUMMINS, and five half-siblings.
James's father, who was only 20 when his son was born, went on to university and a career in government. He eventually married public servant Elaine FELDMAN, the mother of his two younger children.
At 10, James reconnected with his father. Writer Denise CHONG, who was working for Pierre Trudeau in the 1980s, remembers meeting James and thinking how well-adjusted he seemed, considering his complicated family relationships. As he grew up, James became both a centre point between his father's and his mother's family and a bridge connecting their disparate parts.
"He was our cultural and emotional centre," said Erin KELLY, his oldest sibling, by telephone from La Paz. She and her brother Chris had flown to Bolivia to help Ms. NEWELL make arrangements to bring Mr. CADDELL's ashes back to Canada.
After James graduated from Cortland High School near Syracuse, New York in 1991, he moved to Montreal to study at Dawson College and then McGill University. He also joined a reserve unit of the Royal Canadian Hussars regiment. He wanted to honour his paternal grandfather, Philip (Pip) CADDELL, a Second World War veteran, and to serve his country because he loved it so much, said Ms. NEWELL.
At McGill, he enrolled in North American studies, a cross-disciplinary program in history, economics and political science, but later switched to political science and history.
He took a year off in 1995 to train at Val Cartier and to serve in Bosnia with the United Nations peacekeeping forces. This was not a traditional assignment because there was no peace to keep. Consequently, the United Nations altered its mandate to allow soldiers to return fire if fired on and to safeguard protected zones. Mr. CADDELL was awarded the Peacekeeping Service and UNPROFOR medals.
In the summer of 1997, he was a Normandy Foundation Scholar, which meant he did a six-week tour of battlefields in northern Europe from Waterloo to the Somme to the D-Day landings in Normandy. He graduated from McGill in 1997 and spent the next year working as an intern at the Pearson Peacekeeping Centre in Nova Scotia, living with his brother Chris in Los Angeles and doing freelance work.
In 1998, he went, as a civilian, to the Royal Military College in Kingston to do a master's degree in war studies. That is where he met Tara, who was starting a master's in public administration at Queen's. Neither of them knew anybody in Kingston, but they kind "of recognized" each other from classes at McGill, said Ms. NEWELL. In fact, Mr. CADDELL knew who she was because he had worked part-time for the Student Society and she had signed his paycheques in her capacity as president.
"He was really smart, really funny and, unlike other men, he was really kind and warm and sensitive," she said -- probably because he grew up with "so many" women. "He was always looking for stability and roots," while she wanted "to break free" from the stereotypical nuclear family in London, Ontario, with two parents "who had been in love forever," the dog, the station wagon and an older brother.
They fell in love, moved to Ottawa after they graduated in 2000 and found jobs with the federal government. At the same time, he switched reserve units to the 2 Intelligence Platoon of Royal Canadian Hussars. He never became an officer and referred to himself somewhat ruefully as a "master corporal with a master's degree."
Every year, they went on a long canoe trip in Algonquin Park, with Mr. CADDELL insisting they go to the "deepest, darkest, farthest corner of the park where they wouldn't see anybody else."
In July of 2002, they married and went to Africa for six weeks on their honeymoon. They were both inspired by its diversity, but she was the one who came home with a dream of seeing the rest of the world. Mr. CADDELL came up with the savings plan (live on his salary and bank hers) to make it happen. "In our relationship, he was the strategy/ideas guy and I was the logistics/implementer. For some reason, I couldn't stop dreaming [about the trip] and he put it together for me."
After seeing Australia and Southeast Asia, they went to Nepal, where they planned to spend Christmas at the last base camp before the summit on Mount Everest. On the way up the mountain, they made a pact that, if one of them developed altitude sickness, the other would continue alone. On Christmas morning, they set off for the base camp at 5,380 metres, but Mr. CADDELL became disoriented and the Nepali guide went for help. "It was the second-hardest day of my life," said Ms. NEWELL, weeping, explaining that the six hours she spent climbing to the base camp was the longest separation they had had in two years. "I worried the whole time, but when I came back, he was fine."
The tsunamis hit South Asia the next day. They had already done some relief work in East Timor, but they wanted to do more. They spent two months as volunteers with a Canadian relief agency in the Kannyakumari district of southern India, living with children who had been orphaned by the tsunamis. "It changed everything for us," she said.
They spent hours talking about the future, his business plans, the orphans they would adopt and their schemes for making the world a better place. "James wanted to come home and be a business success, so he could spend all of his money on charity and support children around the world. I wanted to be in the field, so we had different approaches with the same objective."
In June, they flew to Brazil and travelled through Uruguay and Argentina, where they studied Spanish for six weeks. "James wanted to go home about Buenos Aires and start having children," she said, "but I wanted to go as far south as we could go first. He was willing to do it because he loved me and he knew it was my dream."
They went to Tierra del Fuego, off the tip of South America, and reversed direction. "He was obsessed with turning north," she said, adding that he was the most patriotic Canadian she had ever met and just moving in a northerly direction excited him. Yesterday, she completed the journey with his ashes.
James Lawrence CADDELL was born in Montreal on March 16, 1973. He died of altitude sickness on Sunday morning in Tupiza, Bolivia. He was 32. He leaves wife, Tara NEWELL; his mother, Norma LEWIS his father, Andrew CADDELL; and seven half-siblings. A scholarship fund to provide higher education for orphans has been set up in his name with the Canadian Relief Organization. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.

He bicycled around Ottawa and took grandchildren boating on Dow's Lake. He enjoyed concerts at the National Arts Centre, attended Wednesday meetings at Riverside Kiwanis and delivered Meals on Wheels, where his regular Christmas delivery will be missed by many.

Call me by my old familiar name; speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone; wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name ever be the household word that it always was, let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere near, just around the corner. All is well." Canon Holland - St. Paul's Cathedral, 1918

Born in Llanelli, Wales, Meg and her husband immigrated to Canada in 1952, a decision they never regretted. Upon moving to Toronto from Montreal she discovered the church that was to mean so much to her for the rest of her life; the Dewi Sant Welsh United Church, 33 Melrose Ave. A service in her honour will be held at a date to be determined and her ashes will be scattered on the St. Lawrence River in the Thousand Islands near the spot where so many joyful Lewis family reunions have been held over the years. We thank all those for their prayers, those who kept sending cards of comfort, those who visited and sang to her and those who simply came to speak to her in Welsh. We also find it difficult to adequately express the profound gratitude we owe to all of the wonderful staff at Thompson House, Don Mills, who gave Meg such outstanding loving care and comfort each and every day over the past two years. They will never be forgotten. In lieu of flowers, donations to her beloved church, Dewi Sant, or the Heart and Stroke Foundation will be greatly appreciated.
