Dreaded homecoming for soldier's remains
Body of Thunder Bay reservist flown to Trenton
Clouds broke to shine light on grief of his loved ones
By Anna PIEKARSKI, Staff Reporter
Canadian Forces Base Trenton -- His homecoming should have been joyous, a loving son hugging his parents and girlfriend after coming back from the battlefield, but instead those he loved linked arms and cried, watching as a casket was lifted off a plane.
Anthony BONECA, the 21-year-old reservist from the Lake Superior Scottish Regiment based in Thunder Bay, died in a firefight near Pahmol, west of Kandahar City, in Afghanistan on Sunday.
His visibly grief-stricken parents Shirley and Antonio BONECA leaned on each other for support, as they stared at the flag-draped coffin of their only son. His tour of duty was scheduled to be over in three weeks.
Anthony's girlfriend Megan DECORTE fell into the arms of her parents at the sight of the coffin carrying his body.
BONECA's loved ones stood beside dignitaries yesterday at Canadian Forces Base Trenton awaiting the plane, with media present at the family's request. Rain fell all day, stopping less than an hour before the aircraft touched down at 7 p.m.
Governor General Michaëlle Jean, Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor, Chief of Defence Staff Gen. Rick Hillier and members of the military were there to join in remembering the ultimate sacrifice BONECA made for his country.
The grey Airbus broke through clouds just as the sun appeared, turning the rain-soaked tarmac into a blinding surface of light.
A bagpiper played as the body was placed in the hearse -- the sound of Megan's sobs the only other noise.
Clutching flowers, family members kissed the petals before placing them on the casket.
There has been debate surrounding BONECA's death, based on accounts he gave to those back home about his two tours of duty in Afghanistan.
His girlfriend's father Larry DECORTE told the Star on Sunday that BONECA was unhappy about conditions of his recent Kandahar posting, including one three-week-long foot patrol without adequate food or water.
"He hated it over there. He was misled as to what was going to be there when he got there, and what he would be doing. He was very mad about it," DECORTE said.
DECORTE said BONECA was not suicidal but he even went to an army priest to see if talk of suicide would get him discharged.
BONECA's father issued a statement Tuesday saying Anthony loved the army and he knew what he was getting into.
It upset his son to see the conditions in Afghanistan -- the 50°C weather, the sand and the hardships the children endured.
"Certainly Anthony wanted to come home, but I ask what soldier wouldn't in that situation?"
No matter what his state of mind, he still fought and performed the tasks of a soldier. Though he may have been desperate for a ticket home, the duties done gave BONECA a homecoming every soldier dreads.
BONECA's infantry unit motto is Inter Pericula Intrepidi, Latin for fearless in the face of danger.
"Anthony was the first to volunteer in any situation," his father said.
BONECA is Canada's 17th military casualty in Afghanistan since For a time, media were banned from covering the return of those killed in Afghanistan earlier this year, by Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government.
Public backlash from that decision -- and talk that the government was really attempting to hide the death toll of the Afghan conflict saw the Conservatives retreat, saying they would leave the decision up to individual families.
The BONECAs allowed photos on the tarmac.
But they declined to give interviews.

FOLEY, Christopher Columba
Passed away at home, on Good Friday, April 14, 2006, at the age of 80, in the High Park neighbourhood where he lived for more than 40 years. Christopher was born in Kells, County Meath, Ireland on May 10, 1925. He was the beloved father of Margaret FOLEY and devoted husband to his late wife, Anne Teresa, née CLIFFORD. He is survived by his loving wife Marie Terese, née BONENFANT. Christopher was known affectionately as Christy by his wide circle of Friends, many of whom shared his passion for Irish culture. His was a life marked by a devotion to those institutions that nurtured the values he held dear, among them, the Catholic Church, the St. Vincent de Paul Society and numerous Irish social organizations. Although he moved away from his native Ireland as a teenager, Christy carried his roots with him wherever he went. He flew to Canada in 1948 on one of the early trans-Atlantic flights in search of greater opportunity. It was in Toronto that his enterprising spirit rose to the fore. Christy worked for C.N. Rail and the Royal York Hotel. Saving enough to buy his first home within six months, Christy turned it into yet another opportunity - becoming a landlord and giving other young Irish men a roof over their heads. He worked with the Metro Toronto Waterworks Department for 30 years and continued a close relationship with fellow retirees through the rest of his life. Family, work and his many community activities filled his days. Sickness did nothing to quell his stubborn streak nor dash his great love of travel. Christy will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. He leaves behind his cherished sisters-in-law Margaret HERRING, Evelyn FOLEY and longtime family friend, Mildred CREGAN. He is also survived by his loving nephews and nieces and their families: Ray FOLEY, Ann PALEN, Brian and Thomas HEGARTY, Thomas CARROLL, Peter, Gerard and Michael O'LOUGHLIN and Angela BYRNE. Christy, the youngest of six children born to Margaret SMITH and Thomas FOLEY, is predeceased by all his siblings, Kathleen, Gerty, May, Lily and brother Paddy. Special thanks to his doctor, Eckhart SCHWEIHOFER and Margaret GORECKI, the home care worker who became such a good friend. Visitation for our beloved Christy will be held Tuesday, April 18 and Wednesday, April 19 from 2-4 and 7- 9 p.m. at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor Street West, Toronto, at Windermere Ave., east of Jane subway. Funeral Mass will be held Thursday, April 20 at 10: 30 a.m. at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 3055 Bloor Street West. In lieu of flowers, donations in the name of Christopher Foley to the St. Vincent de Paul Society or ShareLife would be much appreciated.

February 1, 2005.
I often lie awake at night
When the world is fast asleep
I take a walk down memory lane
With tears upon my cheeks.
The years we had with you
Are worth their weight in gold.
The joy and laughter you gave us
Are mine to have and to hold.
Remembering you is easy
I do it every day
Missing you is a heartache
That never goes away
I hold you close within my heart
And there you will remain.
To walk with me, throughout my life
Until we meet again.
Deeply missed and lovingly remembered. Mike and Candice Wilson, Art, Marg

Barrie woman charged with murdering her children
Family embroiled in bitter custody battle
By Gregory BONNELL and Allison JONES / The Canadian Press
A troubled mother embroiled in a court battle over custody of her two young daughters was facing murder charges Wednesday after police discovered the girls dead in a west-end apartment.
An early-morning phone call summoned police to the apartment, where they made an emotional and grisly discovery: the bodies of a one-year-old girl and her three-year-old sister.
Also in the apartment was the mother of the victims, 31-year-old Frances Elaine CAMPIONE, who was taken to hospital for a brief examination before she was charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
Residents of the building expressed shock and disbelief as they described seeing the girls playing outside; those who know their mother said the family was in the midst of a bitter custody dispute. "Nobody would help her, it seemed like," said one of the building's tenants, speaking on condition of anonymity. "She was reaching out for help and she was struggling.
She was having a hard time."
CAMPIONE, whom the neighbour said lived in shelter before recently moving into the apartment complex, was scheduled to appear in family court today on what a judge would only describe as "family matters." She's now scheduled to appear in criminal court instead.
Sharon LYNN, whose daughter lives in the building and is a good friend of CAMPIONE, said it's impossible for strangers to understand what she's been going through.
"(She) was tormented and nobody saw the signs," said LYNN. "( Imagine) you are so desperate that you actually kill your children, to take away the pain to send them to be with the Lord."
"The little girls are precious, their eyes would light up," she continued. "My little grand_son (said he) was going to marry her (oldest daughter)."
CAMPIONE called 911 at about 6: 15 a.m. Wednesday "to notify us that there were two children dead in the apartment," Barrie police Insp. Jim FARRELL said.
The sight of the bodies being removed from the building on adult-size stretchers proved emotional for one officer on the scene. "To see two young bodies being brought out definitely choked me up," said Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND.
"I can only imagine what officers and staff had to face when they saw those children… three and one, they're very innocent and it's very difficult."
Police did not release the names of the girls or how they were killed. Post-mortem examinations were expected to take place Thursday in Toronto.
Neighbours walking their dogs in the small park beside the building said they would see the girls there every day.
"Last Sunday, one little girl was out in the yard looking for a prince," said Reid, who declined to give his last name.
When asked about the mother, Reid replied: "She kept to herself."
Another neighbour, John LAINE, said he didn't know the family well but he recalled seeing the two girls playing in a park outside the apartment building.
"They were happy, go-lucky kids," he said.
The Toronto Star reported on its website that the father lives with his parents in Woodbridge, Ontario - a suburb northwest of Toronto where he lived with CAMPIONE and the two girls before their marriage fell apart.
Neighbours identified the father as Leo CAMPIONE, a hard-working, soft-spoken construction worker who loved nothing more than time with his children, the Star reported.
"He wanted to work things out for the kids, and he loved his wife, too," said neighbour Elisa RIZZO, a grandmother who watched Leo CAMPIONE grow up on the street, fall in love, then suffer through marital breakdown.
"He's a very good guy," "she told the Star. "Always kept his nose clean. Very respectful."

In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, Dennis T. BONNER, who passed away 10 years ago today, January 3, 1995.
This month comes with deep regret,
It brings back a day we cannot forget,
You left so suddenly with no good-bye,
But memories of you will never die,
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone,
Because part of us went with you.
The day God called you home.
Always remembered and sadly missed by family.
