600 attend boys' funeral
Brothers, 9, and 7, killed in swimming tragedy
By Huang NAILI, Staff Reporter
When the two little golden caskets covered with flowers were lowered into the grave at noon yesterday, Truc LE collapsed to the ground.
She rested her head against a railing surrounding the grave and reached out her right hand as if to touch her sons one more time.
Again and again, she called out the names of her two lost boys, Larry and Calvin, her frail voice almost drowned out by sobbing relatives and Friends.
The two Toronto brothers whose lives were claimed by a family swimming tragedy last Sunday were put to rest side by side at the Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery in Thornhill.
More than 600 people, some of them classmates and their families, crowded into St. Jane Frances Church on Jane St. for the service, held in Vietnamese and English.
Truc LE, 40, sank to her knees right in front of the grave and prayed.
A family member said Truc was asking her sons to bless their brother Anthony, the only survivor of the tragedy at Guelph's Belwood Lake Conservation Area, who is recovering at the Hospital for Sick Children.
Soan Thi NGUYEN, 78, the boys' grandmother who helped raise the children, also threw herself onto the caskets. Family members said she has been crying since the accident and has lost her voice.
Larry, 9, died Sunday after he drowned in the lake. Calvin, 7, died Monday night at Sick Kids. His major organs were donated to help other children live.
Theresa NGUYEN, 9, and her brother, Anh Tuan NGUYEN, 12, listened to the mass in the foyer outside the overflowing chapel. She and the LE brothers attended St. Jane Frances Catholic School.
"I'll always remember him as a funny guy," she said.
"We are making cards for the boys. We painted pictures like two little boys in heaven and we wrote words like 'We miss you' and 'We hope you have a peaceful time in heaven.'"
Mimi CHAU, 45, cried quietly in a corner of the foyer. She doesn't know the family but said she came out of respect.
"I'm one of the Vietnamese boat people who made a long way to have a life here in Canada, just as the boys' father. I came because I feel so sad for the family," said CHAU.
She read the news in a local Vietnamese newspaper while at Sick Kids on Tuesday, where her 15-year-old daughter was receiving a kidney transplant.
Noting Toronto's Vietnamese community isn't that big, CHAU said "whenever something like this happens, everyone would go out to help."
When the priests were sprinkling the two caskets with holy water, Theresa TRAN, a Sunday school teacher at the church, cried out with the boys' aunt, Anh LE.
The three brothers attended TRAN's Vietnamese language class every Sunday and June 5 was the last day before summer vacation.
"That Sunday was the last time I saw them. They are charming boys," TRAN said.
TRAN was preparing a gift her students in the last class.
Because the three boys were always very active and occassionally naughty, she teased them, saying they wouldn't receive anything.
"They all begged, 'Oh, Miss TRAN, please, please give us a gift. We'll be good. We promise to behave in September.'"
TRAN finally gave the three kids a book, a pencil and a little bear.
At the cemetery, Sabrina CARD and Wladimir ROBLERO of Pickering, were special guests of the family. They were at the lake when tragedy struck."I was just fortunate to be there. I was able to grab Anthony and take him to the shore so we could start (cardio-pulmonary resuscitation)."
"We feel sorry, deeply sorry for the family," CARD said. "We were busy doing cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on Anthony without knowing what was happening to Larry and Calvin." They were later found lying under water.
Yesterday, CARD gave the boys' mother, a kiss on the cheek. "I told her she has to stay strong for Anthony."
Anh LE, the boys' aunt who was supervising the children, "is having a very hard time," said a family member.
"The family is learning the lesson the hard way. But we should all learn and teach water safety to (kids).
"The government should bring back swimming lessons to schools," he said.
Another mass will be celebrated in Vietnamese at St. Jane Frances Catholic Church at 5: 30 p.m. today.
The Vietnamese community has set up a trust fund for the family at a Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce branch, transit number 05522, account 2681439. Tax receipts are available.

Tears mark spot where 'good man' died
By Scott ROBERTS, Staff Reporter. With files from Huang NAILI
With her head buried in her hands, Ann-Marie cried yesterday beside a small memorial erected for her 27-year-old boyfriend shot dead Friday night at a Scarborough housing complex.
On the patch of grass where Melbourne Glendon WHITTICK was killed lies a bundle of red and white roses, pink carnations and a glass of red wine flanked by a porcelain statue of the Virgin Mary. Aside from the tears, this memorial is the only sign that a man was murdered here a day earlier. The police tape has been taken down; children are back playing on the street.
"I woke up this morning and I said 'no, he's here,'" said Ann-Marie, who asked her last name not be used. "He was such a good man. He didn't bother anybody. He didn't harass anybody... I don't understand why."
WHITTICK became involved in an altercation with two men before he was shot once in the abdomen while on his way to the bus station on Victoria Park Rd. near Finch Ave., near the Morecambe Gate complex where his girlfriend and his aunt live.
It is unknown why WHITTICK was shot, but police said the two suspects might have been after the chain around his neck.
The woman who first called 911 said she tried to keep WHITTICK alert while he lay on the ground, a single stream of blood dripping down his shirt.
"He looked at me and I was just telling him to stay alert," said Sandy, who declined to give her last name. "I was clapping my hands together and trying to keep him conscious."
Police arrived at the scene within minutes and taped off the area to keep out a crowd of concerned residents. Some witnesses: said it took Emergency Medical Services workers more than 25 minutes to arrive.
"The police came and the fire trucks came but there was no ambulance," said Sandy. "I kept saying to them 'where is the ambulance, where is the ambulance? He is going to die!'"
Police did not comment on the response time but said it was unlikely it took 25 minutes for Emergency Medical Services workers to arrive.
Toronto Emergency Medical Services officials could not be reached for comment.
Doctors told the family that WHITTICK died of internal bleeding, Ann-Marie said. An autopsy is scheduled for 10 a.m. today.
WHITTICK, who celebrated a birthday in late May, moved to Canada three years ago from his native Jamaica in search of better opportunities and to be with family members in Toronto. He used to live at the housing complex where he was killed but had since moved to the Don Mills Rd. and Sheppard Ave. area.
Friends describe WHITTICK as a quiet and friendly man who loved to spend time with his 3-month-old son.
Yesterday morning, Pastor Orim MEIKLE from Rhema Christian Ministries in Scarborough and about 600 parishioners took "the power of prayer" to the streets in four neighbourhoods: Regent Park; Jane St.-Finch Ave. W.; Rexdale (Rexdale Blvd.-Albion Rd.); and Malvern (Sheppard Ave.-Markham Rd.).
The group wanted "to show support for the police and those who are trying their best to make our neighbourhoods safe and awesome for people to live," said Minister Jamie CARRINGTON as she walked with about 85 parishioners in Regent Park.
"We noticed in the past few weeks, or in the past few years, we have a lot of shootings... particularly in these areas," CARRINGTON said. "We want to reach out to these communities to let them know there is a church available. We want to take a strong stand against violence."
