STERLING, Charles
In loving memory of Charles STERLING, Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother
It took our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you
On the day God called you home.
We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new
We thought about you yesterday
And every day before that too.
We think of you in silence
And often speak your name
Now all we have are memories
And your picture in a frame
Those memories are our keepsake
With which we'll never part
God has you in his keeping
"We have you in our hearts"
You are always in our thoughts and prayers...your loving family.

Three killed in weekend gunplay
By Carolyn ABRAHAM, Monday, October 24, 2005, Page A12
Three men were shot dead on Toronto streets over the weekend in two separate, bloody and very public displays of gun power.
Some time around 6: 30 yesterday evening, two men were driving near the intersection of Finch Avenue and Martingrove Road in Etobicoke when two men on foot fired at them, police said.
Their silvery-coloured vehicle then veered through the intersection and crashed into the fence outside Elmbank Junior Middle Academy School.
"Both of the men were in the vehicle when they were shot," Toronto Sergeant Mike ROSINA said last night as officers worked in the cold drizzle, gathering grim measurements at the scene.
Inspector Mike EARL of 23 Division said the driver was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead. A passenger, whose body lay covered under an orange sheet on the sidewalk last night, died at the scene.
The suspects were seen fleeing eastbound on foot after the shooting, said Insp. EARL. As a result, police cordoned off the intersection at all four ends and began a methodical hunt in the area that involved forensics teams and at least one German Shepherd.
"Due to the amount of blood at the scene... we're also considering that there may be a third victim," he added. "We're just being cautious."
Police could not say last night if the double shooting had any connection to the fatal gunfire that erupted just 26 hours earlier in north Etobicoke -- an area that has borne the brunt of this summer's gun-related violence.
In that case, police received a 911 call at 4: 25 p.m. Saturday reporting gun shots fired at Finch and Albion Road. When police arrived they discovered 22-year-old Brandon Archibold STERLING lying on the street in front of a townhouse complex.
Mr. STERLING was pronounced dead at the hospital and an autopsy yesterday concluded he had died of a gunshot wound to the chest.
Police are looking for information about a dark blue Dodge, or Chrysler, minivan that witnesses: described fleeing the scene immediately after that shooting.
Toronto has suffered a record number of fatal shootings this year, with this weekend's deaths bringing the total to 64 -- 42 of them gun slayings.
Shortly before shots rang out at Finch and Martingrove yesterday, women who lost children to gunfire held a rally in Toronto calling themselves UMOVE -- short for United Mothers Opposing Violence Everywhere.
Toronto police also reported yesterday that they had pulled the body of a white man in his mid-30s from the Humber River at about 4: 15 p.m. The cause of death has not yet been confirmed.

Boyfriend charged in toddler's death
Toddler found dead in wooded lot near Cambridge
Mother's boyfriend charged with first-degree murder
By Nicolaas VAN RIJN, Staff Reporter
The desperate search for a little boy just shy of his second birthday has ended with the discovery of his body in a wooded lot on the outskirts of Cambridge and the arrest of a man on a charge of first-degree murder.
Police found the body of 22-month-old Donny CLUBB in a wooded area between the Grand River and the Whistle Bear Golf Club early yesterday, but would not say what or who led them there.
"Those human remains we believe to be that of Donovan CLUBB," Waterloo regional police Insp. Bryan LARKIN told a news conference, adding an autopsy must still be done. "We're in the early hours of investigation at the crime scene."
The discovery left the little boy's parents devastated.
His mother, 21-year-old Courtney CATTON of Chatham, was in disbelief, her sister Britney said.
"It isn't real," Britney CATTON said. "It's one thing to lose your baby, but to lose him to murder is another thing. It's unexplainable. The only break that my sister had in so long was her kid. He's never gone from her side, ever."
Matt CLUBB, the boy's father, was in shock. "I can't believe this is happening," said CLUBB, 21. "It's like a bad dream and I'm waiting to wake up. But I can't.
"I don't want to believe that this has really happened, I just miss him so much."
CLUBB said police "won't tell us much... if he was buried or not... because they don't want it to interfere with their investigation."
Pam CLUBB, the boy's grandmother, was overcome with grief. "I have a picture of him in a bathtub, he looks so beautiful.... I've been looking at it and all I want to do is hold him, but I can't."
Donny, who had been the subject of a seldom-used province-wide Amber Alert after his mother reported him missing Thursday, was last seen a week ago, when his mother's 35-year-old boyfriend took him on what police believe was a fishing trip in Simcoe, where he has connections.
"Donny's mother was well aware that Donny was going to go away for a period of time," said Chatham-Kent Insp. George FLIKWEERT.
"What they did there, we're not 100 per cent sure, but they were there for several days."
Casey PETERS, who lives next door to the Kitchener house sometimes used by the boyfriend, said she saw a little boy she believes was Donny in a car with the man Monday.
"The kid looked content," PETERS said.
The fishing trip was to have ended Wednesday, and the boy's mother went to bed that night thinking he was back home.
When she found Donny missing Thursday morning, FLIKWEERT said, she called police, who began a missing person investigation at 10: 48 a.m.
Donny's mother told police her boyfriend returned home to their Chatham residence late Wednesday night, and told her that her son was sleeping in the basement of their home.
The man left at about 5: 30 a.m. Thursday, but when CATTON went to look for Donny later that morning she couldn't find him, and called police.
After the boyfriend was arrested in Kitchener on Canada Day, he was interviewed by detectives with the assistance of members of the Ontario Provincial Police's behavioural sciences unit.
"The investigation revealed the circumstances surrounding the death of Donny," Deputy Chief Jack CHAMBERS of Chatham-Kent police said.
Neighbours of CATTON said she had been living with Donny and her boyfriend on Edgar Ave., a quiet street on Chatham's south side.
Rosaire STERLING and his wife Ruth, who have lived on Edgar for 37 years, recalled seeing the energetic child playing in front of their home.
"He used to play right on the road, but my three granddaughters played in the back," Sterling said. "I used to holler at the mum to pull him in. It's a calm street, but there's still a bit of traffic.
"These people didn't cause any rumpus," STERLING added. "They were good people."
Neighbours and other well-wishers began placing flowers in front of CATTON's house, roped off with yellow police crime scene tape, shortly after the news of Donny's death broke yesterday.
Among those paying their respects were Brenda McKINLAY, her young son Zack and boyfriend Bob.
After she placed a single red rose and a small stuffed teddy bear in front of the house, her boyfriend paused and considered the little boy standing beside them.
"Zack's the same age as little Donovan," said Bob.
"It kind of hits home."
Donny's father, meanwhile, was struggling to cope with his loss.
"He was an energetic little boy, always moving, always smiling, always full of life," CLUBB said. "I'll never have the chance to see him grow up and be with him."
Donny's grandmother, too, thought of the good time that will never come again.
"When he would cry, I would take him to the kitchen window and he would look outside, and he would laugh, but that will never happen again," Pam CLUBB said.
Charged with first-degree murder is Shawn Tyler PALMER, who was arrested Canada Day on a warrant charging him with abduction.
He is to make an audio court appearance in Chatham on Wednesday.

Gunfire claims 2 more
By Henry STANCU and Betsy POWELL, Staff Reporters
Three men were shot dead in two separate ambushes within blocks of each other in Rexdale this weekend, leaving police trying to find a connection between the slayings.
Last night, two gunmen opened fire around 6: 30 on the occupants of a car in the heavily travelled intersection at Martin Grove Rd. and Finch Ave. W. The beige Acura, which had been travelling north on Martin Grove, then turned right on Finch and veered off the road before mounting the curb and stopping against a mesh fence surrounding Elmbank Junior Middle Academy.
Fahim TALAKSHI, 25, who was shot in the head, lay beside the car and was pronounced dead by paramedics.
Aleem REHMTULLA, 26, also shot in the head, was taken to Sunnybrook hospital where he died. Both were from Oakville.
Two suspects were seen running from the area. One is described as black, in his early 20s and is 6 feet tall, about 150-160 pounds. He was wearing a black, waist-length coat, with tear-away pants and dark shoes.
The second suspect is black, about 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds. He was wearing a dark coat with a dark hood over a white hat.
"There's large quantities of blood located in the intersection. At this time we can't ascertain if the blood is from the victims in the vehicle or a third party who left the vehicle or if there was an exchange of gunfire between the people in the vehicle, or the people who were outside the vehicle," said Insp. Mike EARL.
It's unclear whether the Acura had come to a stop when the shooting erupted. Stray bullets hit a number of vehicles in the immediate area, said police, who were questioning pedestrians and motorists as potential witnesses.
The double homicide happened just 26 hours after Brandon ARCHIBALD- STERLING's life came to a sudden, violent end as he walked in a nearby laneway and a dark blue, late model minivan with dark-tinted windows pulled up behind him.
As police officers from 22, 23 and 31 divisions and traffic services closed off the main roads in all directions of the scene, a tracking dog was brought in to follow the trail of the fleeing suspects. Officers there hunted the grounds with flashlights.
"Man. Another shooting. This is getting to be too much," said a man who identified himself as George. "I live where the other guy (ARCHIBALD- STERLING) was killed yesterday. This place is like a shooting gallery."
"We've lived here 10 years and it's just gotten worse lately.
"A lot of people are afraid," said a resident who came to the intersection to see what happened and did not want to be identified.
Northwest Toronto was rocked by shootings this summer though the streets quieted down after police rounded up suspected gang members September 15 as part of Project Flicker, targeting the Ardwick Blood Crew.
Many of those arrested on drugs and weapons charges grew up in a public housing project on Ardwick Blvd., near Finch and Islington Ave., also a short distance from these latest killings.
More than a month had passed since the city's last fatal shooting, a triple homicide that also took place in Etobicoke.
On September 16, a gun battle erupted inside a parked car near an apartment on Tandridge Cres., near Albion Rd. and the Humber Valley Golf Club.
Two men died at the scene, a third succumbed to his injuries a few days later in hospital.
This weekend's gunfire brings the year's homicide total to 64, while the number of firearms homicides climbs to 44, a record number.
This year's escalating gun violence has already prompted police to redeploy officers to trouble spots and launch other initiatives aimed at halting the bloodshed.
Ottawa is also planning to beef up its response to gun crime, the Star reported this weekend.
Due to be unveiled by the end of November, the multi-faceted approach includes introducing tougher rules on sentencing and parole in gun crimes, including longer minimum sentence provisions and lifetime firearm-ownership bans on repeat offenders.
Minimum sentences of one year in some firearms offences could be doubled to two years, and 10-year ownership bans would be extended to lifetime prohibitions, a source told the Star. Another option being considered is for Canada to sue U.S. gun manufacturers for the spread of illegal weapons into this country.
It's estimated that almost half the gun crimes committed in Canada involved illegal U.S. weapons.
While the identity of the shooter and origin of the gun are unknown, a firearm was used to snuff out the life of ARCHIBALD- STERLING around 4: 25 p.m. Saturday.
Police say he was approached from behind by a slow-moving van when an occupant opened fire, striking the 22-year-old who collapsed beside a housing complex at 9 Kendleton Dr., near Finch Ave. W. and Albion Rd. Emergency services workers rushed to the scene and transported him to hospital where he later died.
While there are witnesses: helping police, "they're limited in what they saw and what they're able to tell us," homicide Det. Scott SPRATT said yesterday.
But investigators are hopeful surveillance cameras in the area might provide some clues, particularly because there was still plenty of daylight at the time of the drive-by shooting.
The footage is being enhanced and SPRATT hoped to release some images today.
ARCHIBALD- STERLING died from a gunshot wound to the chest, a post mortem found.
SPRATT said he doesn't know a lot about the victim because his mother is "grieving so hard that we haven't been able to get a lot of background about him."
ARCHIBALD- STERLING lived in a neighbourhood not far from the shooting, he said.
SPRATT believes his father lives in Brampton.
The victim was known to police, but not "in a major way," he added.
It is too soon to say whether the shooting relates to gang activity or for police to speculate on a possible motive.
SPRATT confirmed he had been at a Popeyes, a nearby fast food eatery, sometime before he was killed.
Police are looking for a dark blue minivan, possible a Chrysler, Dodge, or Plymouth, approximately two years old, with dark tinted windows.
