KOWALIK, Peter Michael (October 26, 1970-August 24, 2001)
Dear Peter,
These past years without you
Are the hardest we've ever known
We treasure every thought of you,
And keep them as our own.
Although we cannot see you
You are with us night and day,
For the love that was between us
Death cannot take away.
The next time we will see you
Will be at Heaven's Doors
You'll be there to greet us
And we will cry no more.
We'll put our arms around you
And kiss your smiling face
Then the pieces of our broken hearts
Will fall back into place.
People tell us we have memories
But they don't understand
How can we hug a memory
Or hold a memory's hand.
If tears could build a stairway
And memories a lane
We'd walk right up to Heaven
And bring you home again.
We hold you close within our hearts,
To walk with us throughout our lives,
Love you, miss you. Until we meet again. Love, your wife Ewa, son Michael, Mom and Dad, your sister Barb, John, Paul and Stephen.

The world has just lost a creative and passionate man.

Black bear mauls doctor to death
Canadian Press
Missinaibi Lake Provincial Park -- Police and wildlife officials were hunting a wounded black bear yesterday after a woman was mauled to death and her husband hurt as he tried to stop the animal dragging his wife into northern Ontario bush.
Campers have been ordered out of the back country of Missinaibi Lake Provincial Park, about 80 kilometres north of Chapleau, as conservation officers equipped with a helicopter and a dog team scour the area.
Natural Resources officials said Marc JORDAN of Cambridge was armed with only a Swiss Army knife as he fought to keep the predatory animal from dragging his fatally mauled wife, Jacqueline PERRY, into the brush.
"He fought back as hard as he could with the weapon he had at hand," Jolanta KOWALSKI of the Ministry of Natural Resources said. "But the bear was relentless in wanting to take her into the bush."
JORDAN, 30, suffered cuts while slashing the bear at least five times, police said. The computer specialist was flown to a Sudbury hospital, where he was expected to require surgery. He was listed in serious but stable condition.
PERRY, 30, was a family doctor at a Cambridge hospital. Staff at Grandview Medical Centre were devastated on hearing of Tuesday's attack, said lead physician, Jeff MAIN.
JORDAN and PERRY were on a two-week holiday, camping and kayaking alone at a remote campsite when a black bear hunting for food attacked, said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Karen FARAND/PHARAND.
In the frantic attempt to save his wife, the injured JORDAN carried her to their kayak and began to paddle to the nearest campsite, FARAND/PHARAND said.
He yelled for help and a 54-year-old man and his 30-year-old son from Pennsylvania, camping at a site, heard him.
JORDAN put his wife into their boat, which carried them all off in search of help.
About a kilometre away, they spotted and flagged down another boat, which carried a doctor from North Carolina and an off-duty police officer.
The doctor tried to treat PERRY while the boat continued to the park's main office, about 10 kilometres away. But by then, PERRY had died.
"I've lived here all my life and this is a first for me," said FARAND/PHARAND.
"I can't even imagine what (PERRY and JORDAN) went through."
FARAND/PHARAND said the area is home to many black bears and has had more than its usual share of bear sightings this year because it hasn't been a good season for blueberries.
Keith SCOTT, a bear expert with the Ministry of Natural Resources, said such attacks are "very rare."
"There's only been four fatalities in Ontario through black bears dating back to about 1978," he said.
"In this particular case, it's early in the investigation, but it appears to be a predatory-type bear. These bears have learned to and often prey on humans."
The attack is just the latest in what has been a busy season for bear attacks across Canada.
A Manitoba man fended off a black bear in early September, just one week after a black bear killed another man in the province.
There have also been four grizzly attacks in Alberta since June, including a fatal one on a female jogger near Canmore. A woman in British Columbia was also mauled in May.

He was an avid supporter of the Stratford Festival and enjoyed relaxing with dear Friends over a wonderful bottle of wine.

Kay was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan in 1921. Her parents Tim and Rose MARTIN introduced her to a number of notables in her youth such as Mackenzie King, K.C. Irving and Elliott Trudeau. These associations led to a lifelong interest in politics. Trained in dance and theatre, Kay was also a skilled athlete and marksman. In 1938, she enrolled in Emerson College in Boston and began a key phase of her life as she served as part of the Sir William Stephenson's Intrepid network. As a student, she secretly brought vital communications documents between Churchill and Roosevelt back and forth across the Canada/U.S. border. In 1941, after Pearl Harbor, Kay immediately left school in Boston to serve the balance of World War 2 as an intelligence officer at the Captor II naval base in New Brunswick. In 1942 she married a sailor, Donald Edward SNELGROVE. After the war, Kay and Donald moved to Regina to start their family. Divorced in 1970, Kay returned to the workforce. She spent 17 years at the Brampton Times newspaper. In retirement Kay kept up her sports and was still dancing to the end bringing a smile to the faces of those around her.

Cambridge doctor fatally mauled by bear
Husband tries to fend off animal with knife
Community mourns 'wonderful' physician
By Liz MONTEIRO and Brian CALDWELL, Torstar News Service, Kitchener-Waterloo Record
Cambridge -- Armed with only a Swiss Army knife, Cambridge resident Mark JORDAN fended off a predatory bear yesterday, but not before the animal fatally mauled his wife, Dr. Jacqueline PERRY.
"He fought back as hard as he could with the weapon he had at hand," Jolanta KOWALSKI of the Ministry of Natural Resources said yesterday.
"But the bear was relentless in wanting to take her into the bush."
The couple were on a two-week holiday in Missinaibi Lake Provincial Park, 80 kilometres north of Chapleau, Ontario
PERRY, 30, was a family physician at the Grandview Medical Centre on Hespeler Rd. in Cambridge, and JORDAN, 30, is a computer specialist. The couple married nearly four years ago and didn't have any children.
Staff at the medical centre were devastated yesterday, and patients were calling in disbelief, said the centre's lead physician, Dr. Jeff MAIN.
"Jacqueline represented vitality and youthfulness," he said. "It's like losing a child. She was the youngest partner here."
PERRY and JORDAN were alone at the remote campsite yesterday afternoon when a black bear hunting for food attacked, said Const. Karen FARAND/PHARAND of the Superior East Ontario Provincial Police detachment.
The bear went after PERRY, and JORDAN tried to distract it by screaming.
Then, as the animal dragged PERRY into the bush, JORDAN slashed it at least five times with the Swiss Army knife. The bear finally fled, and conservation officers were searching for it yesterday.
In the frantic attempt to save his wife, the injured JORDAN carried her to their kayak and began to paddle to the nearest campsite, FARAND/PHARAND said. He yelled for help and a 54-year-old father and his 30-year-old son from Pennsylvania, who were camping at a site, heard him and got into their pontoon boat.
JORDAN put his wife into the boat, which carried them all off in search of help. About a kilometre away, they spotted and flagged down another boat, which carried a doctor from North Carolina and an off-duty police officer.
The doctor tried to treat PERRY while the boat continued on to the park's main office, about 10 kilometres away.
PERRY died of her injuries. JORDAN was flown to St. Joseph's Hospital in Sudbury, where he was in stable but serious condition yesterday.
This is just the fourth time since 1978 that a black bear has stalked and killed anyone in Ontario. The most recent attack took place in 1992.
"It's very rare and we would prefer to keep it that way," KOWALSKI said. "This is just one of those horrible aberrations."
FARAND/PHARAND said the father and son who came to the aid of the couple had been frightened by the bear about 45 minutes before the fatal attack.
The men were hiking when the bear approached them. They shouted and made as much noise before the bear scampered, FARAND/PHARAND said.
The pair returned to their campsite and were packing up when they heard JORDAN yell for help.
JORDAN's mother, Rosalind JORDAN of Mississauga, who is at her son's bedside in Sudbury, said her daughter-in-law was vivacious, caring and compassionate with her patients and her family.
"She was a bright spark, a bright star," she said. "She knew what she wanted. This just seems so wrong."
PERRY graduated from the University of Toronto's faculty of medicine in 2001. She started at Grandview last November and became a partner at the centre in July. She also worked part time as an emergency room doctor at Brantford General Hospital.
"The community has lost a wonderful physician, and staff and doctors have lost a great colleague and friend," said Jeff POLL, Grandview's administrator.
