In loving memory of my mother and best friend, Mary STEPHENS, who passed away April 24, 2004.
In the whispers of the morning,
When all is silent,
I still listen for you.
I still ache for your hugs,
And words of wisdom.
I still long to see your smile.
God has taken you to be
With Him and Dad.
Many Angels will be with you
On your journey.
Good Friends are present in Heaven.
And good Friends are still here on Earth.
People who laugh, smile and cry together.
Angels come in all shapes and sizes,
And are seen in all places.
If I see one, I will wonder
If they know you.
Miss and love you, Magoo, C.J. and Stan.

I thought of you today, it was about everyday things. I cherish those the most.
I dreamt about you last night. As I woke, I layed still trying to keep the warm memories close. I passed by a room and your perfume greeted me at the doorway.
It felt like your wings brushed past me.
Memories flood back to me. Cherished memories are for those who know the wife, friend and our mother.

Ontario Provincial Police officer dies while refereeing game
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter, Sat., December 17, 2005
A charity hockey game between Ontario Provincial Police officers and Glencoe District high school students took a tragic turn yesterday when a veteran officer refereeing the game collapsed and later died.
Const. Dale WAGAR, 55, of Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police, was refereeing the game at Glencoe Arena when he left the ice feeling ill.
The 31-year Ontario Provincial Police veteran collapsed in the dressing room about 2 p.m.
"He was a wonderful man," Sgt. Dave REKTOR of Western Region Ontario Provincial Police said last night.
"He was just full of life and such a great guy... Dale was loved by all of us."
WAGAR, who is survived by his wife, was pronounced dead at Four Counties Hospital in Newbury. It's unclear exactly what caused his sudden death.
Colleagues of the dedicated officer -- some of whom responded to the 911 call for medical assistance at the arena -- were stunned by the sudden death of one of their own, REKTOR said.
"Everybody is in shock," he said.
"They're devastated. Some of them are in tears, some of them are very angry.
"They're dealing with a whole host of emotions that people go through when there's a death of a loved one."
WAGAR, who joined the Ontario Provincial Police in 1974 and served at the Downsview and Kingston detachments before coming to Middlesex, was an "exemplary officer who will be greatly missed by everyone his life touched," said Insp. John STEPHENS, commander of the Middlesex detachment.
"This is a huge loss for the Ontario Provincial Police and the communities we serve," he said.
WAGAR, a Londoner, was a long-serving hockey referee who "died doing everything he loved doing," STEPHENS said.
In a 2001 Free Press column, WAGAR described his affinity for hockey and his reasons for donning the stripes.
"A referee is only there for one reason and it surely isn't the money," he wrote. "They do it for the love of the game."
In his long policing career, WAGAR was a member of the prestigious Golden Helmets precision motorcycle team and served in drug enforcement.
WAGAR also helped with the V.I.P. security unit and assisted when the Queen, the Queen Mother and Pope John Paul II visited Canada.
"He was a heck of a guy," REKTOR said.
He said it's not often officers have to respond to an emergency call involving a colleague, but when it happens it's "a terrible, terrible thing."
"Some people forget that we're humans, too," he said.
The game between the Glencoe students and Western Region Ontario Provincial Police officers was a benefit for the Glencoe Food Bank, REKTOR said.
Play was halted after WAGAR collapsed, he said.
