My Love Is Forever
Written by Stephen Paul TOLMIE
I once was blessed with love
The feeling of closeness to you.
You were my gift from God above,
To have the whole day through.
Now my life is changed-
No longer safe in my arms,
Your time had come to leave me.
My sense of worth removed
The void of closeness to you
Now fills my world completely,
I must now search my memories
For your love I surely need.
Rest now my love, my lady
As my love will never die.
I know we will be together.
We will always live forever,
Our minds will be connected through all eternity.

TOLOS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-11-16 published
Chris TOLOS, Wrestler (1929-2005)
Elder half of the Tolos Brothers who intimidated wrestling 40 years ago shunned the spotlight in retirement, wrote a cookbook and stayed home to care for his elderly mother
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, November 16, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- The elder of the two famous TOLOS brothers from Hamilton, Ontario, Chris enjoyed the bulk of his success in the ring in tag-team matches, while John TOLOS gained more stature in singles' events.
Nicknamed The Body, Chris TOLOS was a natural athlete. Growing up in Hamilton, he participated in track and field, lacrosse, hockey and football. A six-footer and shorter than John TOLOS by two inches, Chris TOLOS took up wrestling some time around 1950 under trainer (Wee) Willie DAVIS. He made his debut as a bad guy or "heel," losing preliminary bouts to such stalwarts of the mat as Sandor Kovacs and Johnny Barend.
In an era when wrestlers travelled around North America and performed many nights a week, Chris TOLOS soon had his brother accepting the call into the ring. Together, the two developed one of the best tag teams in the sport. In the 1950s and 1960s, the duo won a number of championships, including the world and Canadian titles in 1967. Along they way, they also won wrestling crowns in Florida, Texas, New York and Northern California. In 1963, they took the top tag title in the World Wrestling Federation by defeating Killer Kowalski and Gorilla Monsoon. Oddly, the TOLOS brothers seldom competed at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, a famed venue for wrestling. They appeared at the Gardens only in 1957, and then for a few months. They preferred to travel and didn't return until 1960.
"Travel broadens one. It also makes some persons mean, such as Chris and John TOLOS," reported the Toronto Telegram on August 21, 1960. "The TOLOS Brothers, who went away two years ago as real good guys, came back meaner than hungry piranhas." By then the TOLOS Brothers had come to be known as the Canadian Wrecking Crew or the Golden Greeks. They were rarely demonstrative or relied on props; instead they preferred to show up in simple athletic tights. Their techniques and holds varied: Chris TOLOS was known for his flying head scissors and Boston Crab while John TOLOS used knee drops and body slams.
However, for all their ringside reticence, the brothers weren't above indulging in prolonged grudges. One of their greatest feuds developed in Buffalo when they repeatedly came up against the Gallagher Brothers, Doc and Mike. It was a classic battle between two bad-guy combos. According to the website Slam! Sports, those encounters often resulted in a bloodbath and it was not uncommon for them to end in double disqualifications.
For all the terror they spread among wrestlers, the TOLOS boys conveyed the kind of comfortable jocularity only seen among brothers. Their hype and banter at the end of an interview with a ring announcer was a familiar sight. Relaxed and generally pleased with themselves, they would pat each other warmly on the back. "Right, brother John?" Chris would ask. Taking the microphone, John would reply, "Right, brother Chris? Right." Often, they would triumphantly clasp hands and Chris would declare: "Me and John are the greatest."
Their devotion was legendary. Chris TOLOS was featured in the 1988 book Drawing Heat by Jim Freedman who wrote, "Neither brother would stop at anything to defend the other. This solidarity, a fanatical loyalty that called organized crime to mind, became their secret weapon, a mindless brotherhood. They flogged it weekly on television appearances with a steady drone of mutual admiration and threats addressed in unison to their adversaries."
In an interview with Mr. Freedman, Chris TOLOS spoke of the importance of connecting with fans. "We don't need no clips, no pens or robes. We had a natural gimmick. Nobody really needs that stuff foreign objects and all. The gimmick is to reach the fans. Understand them. Look them in the eyes."
During his singles' career in the 1960s, Chris TOLOS made a number of bids for a National Wrestling Alliance title and survived a lengthy feud with Iron Mike DiBiase. Notably, he also fought the likes of Fred Atkins, Billy Red Lyons, The Sheik, The Beast, Pampiro Firpo and Canadian legend Gene Kiniski.
"I only fought Chris a few times but one thing about him is that he always kept in fantastic shape," Mr. Kiniski said from his home recently. "With the shape he was in, once he got in the ring, he gave fans their money's worth. He was a guy who worked on your neck and upper part of the body. He didn't do many leg take-downs."
In 1971, Chris TOLOS decided it was time to get married and raise a family. After that, he spent most of his time wrestling close to home for Ontario sport promoters Frank Tunney and Dave (Bearman) McKigney. Domesticity must have suited him because some time in the mid-1970s he came out with a cookbook.
By 1983, Chris TOLOS had quit competitive wrestling and returned to Hamilton for good. He looked after his disabled sister, Mary, and cared for his mother until her death at 101.
Chris TOLOS was an extrovert in the ring and an introvert in private. He became a recluse after retiring from the ring and he seldom spoke to reporters. He was rarely seen in public, spurned publicity and did not attend wrestling engagements. In the end, the limelight had lost its appeal. Ditto for John TOLOS, who declined to be interviewed.
Chris TOLOS was born December 5, 1929, in Hamilton, Ontario He died August 12, 2005, of cancer in Hamilton. He is survived by his brother John, sister Mary and son Nicholas. He was predeceased by his wife.
