COCHRANE, Dorothy Lynn
In loving memory of a loving Mom and Nana, Dorothy Lynn COCHRANE, who passed away one year ago today March 1, 2005.
The sense of loss must give way,
If we're to value the life that was lived.
Grief is not a sign of weakness,
Nor a lack of faith,
It is the price of love.
I love you Mom….
We miss you a whole lot.
Love Corey and Justin.

BURK/BURKE, James (né KAPHALAKOS) (September 16, 1917-October 15, Writer - Editor - Novelist Longest-living Canadian Paraplegic
James BURK/BURKE would be the last to want his disability given any billing. Yet in the view of his considerable achievements it enhances his successful challenge of life. It is a mark of distinction. He was born in Toronto the son of Peter KAPHALAKOS (Peloponnesus, Greece) and Florence COCHRANE, Toronto. If heritage counts, he exhibited the strength and stoicism of a Spartan combined with the humour of the Irish. All his youth he excelled in academic standing, he was a voracious reader, lover of classic music, and a regular at the 'Y' (1939 Bronze Medal in the Jr. Ontario Championships). Later he took flying instructions out of the Toronto Island Airport. He was about to get his private license, when he was a passenger in an auto accident in 1940, before seat belts were in use. Rehabilitation or social programs for civilian paraplegics were nonexistent. He spent 7 years in hospitals permanently confined to a wheelchair. In an interview much later he said simply: 'I have a rather undistinguished past.' On release he pursued a career in freelance writing, book reviewing and editing for Canadian magazines, newspapers and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He wrote everything from short stories to commercial copy. He edited the journal of the Canadian Paraplegic Association for some 8 years. In 1951 he married actress Laddie DENNIS. They honeymooned in Mexico. Throughout their marriage they took numerous car journeys sharing the driving in the U.S. and Canada. They moved to Scarborough in 1955 and rescued an unfinished renovation of a building on the historic site of the Falcon Inn. Doing the contracting himself, BURK/BURKE did such a good job it was written up by most of the Toronto papers. The 11-room house sits in a woods with a spring fed stream and terraced lawns. It has remained their home to this day. He published his first novel "Flee Seven Ways" in Great Britain (by Hutchinson with distribution in Canada), in the U.S. (Pantheon) and in a German translation (Rauch). It received high praise from top publications: The Times Literary Supplement, The Irish Times, Punch magazine, New Yorker magazine, Sunday New York Herald Tribune, etc. Robert Moses, President of The New York World's Fair 1964-65 wrote of his admiration, and long time friend Marshall McLuhan predicted 'It is a picaresque scenario that will be snapped up by an alert movie enterprise.' And so it was that the Burkes flew to London in 1963 where he wrote the movie script. Given the vagaries of filmdom it did not come to fruition. However, an unexpected contract with the British Broadcasting Corporation resulted in his writing a radio script of the classic "Diary Of A Madman" by Gogol. It was given repeated airings with film actor Kenneth Williams. In 1969 his second novel was published in Britain "The Firefly Hunt" (Collins). Again it was embraced by reviewers, especially in the British press, including a long one in The Times Literary Supplement. 'A sparkling Romancandle of a fantasy' - Argosy United Kingdom called it. He started a third novel but serious health problems diminished the long term energy needed for the project. In his last days he was cheered to hear that his novels are still selling on the Internet. He died in a Toronto hospital with his wife of 55-years holding his hand, following a ferocious 5-week battle. According to his wishes he was buried in The Scarborough Historical Society's Bethel Pioneer Cemetery in a private family ceremony on October 24. There will be a tree planting in the Spring to honour his remarkable life. He is survived by brothers Paul and Peter, a nephew Christopher, a niece Paula BASTONE and sisters-in-law Mary KAYE of Montreal and Mae KAPHALAKOS of Toronto. He was predeceased by his brothers Jack (3-weeks before at 93 years) of Montreal and George KAPHALAKOS (1988) of Toronto. 'Now Jim, you can really fly. May angels ride on your wings.' - Bill McVean

James BURK/BURKE, Writer And Editor: (1917-2006)
Paralyzed by an auto accident in 1942, he survived to become one of Canada's longest-surviving paraplegics
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- James BURK/BURKE was 22 and only weeks from getting a pilot's licence when an accident left him paralyzed. The year was 1940 and Toronto's health system was ill equipped to deal with civilian paraplegics. Hospital authorities basically told him to "pray and die," he said later.
He spent long years in institutions before the availability of the personal collapsible wheelchair -- combined with his own willpower -- helped him start a new life on the outside. He worked as a freelance writer and editor, married radio and stage personality Laddie DENNIS, and authored two comic novels in the 1960s. He was to spend more than six decades in a wheelchair and was one of Canada's longest-surviving paraplegics.
"He never allowed himself to be shackled by remorse," says William GEISLER, one of the doctors who helped with his rehabilitation. "He didn't ruminate on what had been. He knew those emotions would sap him of the energy he required." Friends say he avoided talking about his handicap, had a strong sense of humour and was always willing to help others.
For a number of years, Mr. BURK/BURKE edited the Caliper, the journal of the Canadian Paraplegic Association. He also wrote Return to Action, a history of treatment programs for spinal-cord patients. But he never mentioned disabilities in his other writings, which included a physical fitness course, short stories, book reviews for The Globe and Mail and two novels.
Flee Seven Ways (1964) is the rollicking tale of a corrupt businessman. It was published in Britain, the U.S. and Germany to favourable reviews. "A very funny first novel," wrote The New York Times. The paper's Literary Supplement noted: "His novel is a complex construction, bravely undertaken and creditably carried out."
In The Firefly Hunt (1969), mischief and mayhem bedevil the hero after he inherits a castle from an eccentric uncle. Argosy magazine called it "a sparkling Roman-candle of a fantasy." Mr. BURK/BURKE drafted a third novel, but health problems halted completion.
Christened James KAPHALAKOS, he changed his last name to BURK/BURKE as a young man. He was the second of five sons of Panogiotis (Peter) KAPHALAKOS, a Greek immigrant who operated a Toronto coffee business, and his wife, Florence (née COCHRANE.) Young James excelled at school and in athletics but, because of his father's death in 1930, he abandoned his studies. To support his family, he graduated from high school and then went looking for whatever work he could find.
An avid weightlifter with a striking physique, he earned some income as a live model at the Ontario College of Art. But his main job in 1940 was on the bull gang at a paper mill. He was also taking flying lessons at the Toronto Island airport, but only when he had some extra money. That all changed when the car in which he was a passenger was involved in an accident. The impact broke his back and left him paralyzed from the mid-back down.
At the time, life expectancy for paraplegics was considered low. As a result, Mr. BURK/BURKE was given little more than food, a bed to lie in and drugs to fight off infection. In all, he spent seven years at a succession of Toronto hospitals. Later, he said he only talked about those missing years "to counter the canard" that he had spent them in jail.
He gave details of his dreary hospital years in lengthy interviews conducted in the early 1990s by Mary TREMBLAY, an associate professor of health sciences at McMaster University. She used his experiences in a series of academic papers on the evolution of Canada's treatment of spinal-cord injuries.
At Saint Michael's Hospital, nuns asked Mr. BURK/BURKE to accept his fate and make peace with God. "I somehow didn't feel like taking on the chore of dying at that moment," he told Ms. TREMBLAY. The Queen Elizabeth Hospital was "very restrictive" with few activities, but at Runnymede Hospital he found the staff to be more sympathetic. Somehow, he obtained a typewriter and took up writing. One of his first successes as a freelancer was a correspondence course on fitness that he sold through magazine ads.
His life changed dramatically in 1946 when he was visited by Dr. Al JOUSSE and John COUNSELL, a paraplegic veteran who had been injured at Dieppe. Along with neurosurgeon Doctor Harry BOTTERELL, they had helped set up Lyndhurst Lodge in Toronto as a centre for spinal-injury rehabilitation programs for veterans of the Second World War. As a deserving civilian, Mr. BURK/BURKE was squeezed into the program. He began travelling to Lyndhurst for physiotherapy twice a week. More importantly, he was given one of the Everest and Jennings folding, self-propelled wheelchairs that had provided freedom and hope to paraplegic veterans.
In 1948, he moved to the Young Men's Christian Association in downtown Toronto where he pursued his writing career. He wrote short stories and book reviews, and also worked as a copy editor. It was at the Young Men's Christian Association coffee bar that he met Laddie DENNIS, then a stage actress and radio announcer. She later appeared regularly on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television and became a travel writer. One friend called their romance "the love story of the century." Ms. DENNIS says she "made the first move" and was also the one who proposed. They were married in 1951 and spent their honeymoon in Mexico.
In 1955, they purchased a former five-car garage that once belonged to the historic Falcon Inn in Scarborough. The partly finished structure was considered a white elephant, but the couple turned it into a comfortable home where they often entertained 40 guests at a time.
In 1963, Mr. BURK/BURKE was invited to England to turn his first novel into a screenplay. The project fell through, but along the way he picked up an assignment to write the script for a British Broadcasting Corporation Radio play based on Nikolai Gogol's Diary of a Madman. It starred comedian Kenneth Williams.
Despite his handicap, Mr. BURK/BURKE drove a car, raked lawns, got in and out of a rowboat and even chopped wood.
Mary TREMBLAY started one interview saying she wanted to talk about Mr. BURK/BURKE's ideas about disability. His reply summed up his attitude: "I'm against it."
James BURK/BURKE was born in Toronto on September 16, 1917. He died in Toronto on October 15, 2006, of complications of paraplegia. He was 89. He leaves his wife, Laddie DENNIS, and brothers Paul and Peter KAPHALAKOS.

Tom HODGSON, 81: Passion for art, life
Abstract painter helped revitalize Canadian art
Kid from islands paddled a canoe like few others
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
People always talk about the parties. That's what they remember about Tom HODGSON's life. They happened wherever he lived or in whatever studio he worked -- be it the Pit, as it was called, at King and Church Sts., the house on Shaw Street, where he built a swimming pool in the kitchen, or the storefront on Queen St. W. opposite the mental hospital.
Cold cuts infamously served on the reclining body of a nude woman adorning the buffet table, body-painting women's bare breasts, art student orgies, rich and powerful art patrons swinging on the rope from his studio ceiling.
HODGSON's sons used to drop by to meet girls because there were always women around their dad -- if not the models he hired to pose nude for life drawing classes, then the dewy-eyed students he taught at the Ontario College of Art during the '70s, when mores were exploding in the name of creativity, the muse and the worship of the artist.
You can get away with it when you're also one of Canada's greatest painters, a founder of the audacious Painters Eleven -- the gang of abstract artists who broke the stranglehold of the Group of Seven and revolutionized the Canadian art world, at the same time as you're an Olympic athlete, marathoner, dirt-bike champ and master paddler winning dozens of national championships.
"Tom was a gifted person. Some people are just touched a certain way, but he was very easy about it, not full of himself," said Christopher CUTTS, HODGSON's art dealer.
In 1987, when CUTTS was an upstart on the art scene, a friend arranged a meeting with the artist known as a superb colourist, as well as for his style of action painting -- arm's-length hurling, scraping, pouring oil paints on horizontal canvases on a table surface held in place by an elaborate system of blocks and tackle.
"He had a natural way of dancing on the canvas. He could make it work," CUTTS said.
HODGSON's last solo show was at Cutts's gallery in 1992, the year the artist was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. This year, five days after HODGSON died from the disease -- at 81 on February 27 CUTTS opened a major group show of abstract painters. HODGSON's piece in the show was priced at $30,000.
HODGSON and his kid sister grew up in a 35-room house on Centre Island that their family rented out to tenants. Their father was an insurance broker, a convivial alcoholic who threw parties at their home, known throughout the island as the Hodgson House of Nonsense, according to Jane HODGSON.
"The kids all hung out at the clubhouse on the lagoon," she recalled. "All of us paddled."
But HODGSON was just that much more intense about the sport and much more skilled. When he was 12, it also was clear he was also a talented artist. He began the balancing act between art and athletics that he would maintain for decades.
He trained hard, dodging the ice in Toronto's harbour, winning more than 20 Canadian solo championships. With another islander, Art JOHNSON, and later Bill STEPHENSON, he finished eighth in the tandem at the Helsinki Olympics in 1952 and in ninth place four years later in Melbourne, Australia.
HODGSON married Wilma STEIN, an island girl, and they moved into a house on Centre Island on a lot that extended to the lagoon, where he built a north-facing studio on stilts.
When the property of Centre Island's residents was expropriated in the late '50s, HODGSON moved to the city, becoming very successful in advertising at the same time as he was making a name for himself in the art world with Painters Eleven.
But he walked away from advertising after assessing that he had enough money either to buy a sports car or support himself as an artist for two years. When his marriage ended in 1968, his wife had to get a job to support their four kids. "His life was more important than anybody else and that was hard," said daughter Lise SNAJDR. "He wasn't a good father, but he was a good person in many ways."
"He was not the kind of dad who hugged or kissed you or told you he loved you," said Tim BROADWAY, HODGSON's fifth child, born to Jeannie BROADWAY, an artist. They never married.
Painters Eleven officially disbanded in 1959. By the 1960s and early '70s, HODGSON was a famous artist, as well as a popular teacher at the Ontario College of Art. A nudist, he hosted many parties around the indoor pool at his Shaw St. home. He never had more than three beers, but others did.
"They were orgies," said Neil COCHRANE, an assistant art director at the Toronto Star who was studying at the college then. "That's what happens when you get naked art students, water and drink."
HODGSON met his second wife, Cathy GOOD, when she was his student. She was 19, he 46. He and GOOD moved to a horse farm near Hastings, Ontario, where he built a pond and paddled until 1996, when he went over a dam on the Trent River. By then, Alzheimer's had robbed him of the ability to talk in full sentences or complete a painting.
HODGSON then moved into a care facility and Good to an apartment in Warkworth. He could neither walk nor talk. GOOD, who was devoted to him, visited him three times a day, until her unexpected death last year of an embolism.
HODGSON was saluted by Friends and family at the Balmy Beach Club last month. At one point, one of his Friends shouted, "Here's to Tom," then took off all his clothes (except for his socks) and ran around the whole assembly, past HODGSON's trophies and his art, before sitting down and putting on his clothes.
"Dad would have loved it," SNAJDR said. "But I think he would have preferred it have been a beautiful young woman."
