Smiles after month of tears for slain man
Loved ones gather to remember life of newly married shooting victim
By Tamara CHERRY, Staff Reporter
Just over a month after two bullets to the chest took the life of 21-year-old Dave PERSAUD, his loved ones gathered in an east-end Toronto church, no longer a group shaking their heads in disbelief, but a group coping with the fact that the unthinkable can -- and most certainly did -- happen.
Jasmatti PERSAUD paced the room before the program started at the East Scarborough Church of God, rubbing her hands together, smiling at anyone whose eyes met her own. She told stories of her son with spurts of laughter as her husband, Deodat, sat against the wall, making small talk with all who greeted him.
Their son's Friends put this evening together Saturday night as a way to celebrate the life of Dave, who was killed when he tried to break up a fight on an Edmonton dance floor October 29. Two Edmonton residents were also killed and four others injured when the gunfire broke out.
PERSAUD's parents were called up to speak as the program began.
"My feelings, my emotions, it's not something I can explain," Deodat PERSAUD says with his wife's hand on his shoulder. "We don't know everyday when we wake up how we will be able to face the challenge of that day."
The man whose words were virtually lost in tears during an interview last month speaks loudly and with distinction now.
"(It) is not something that we ever thought would happen. We see it on the news and we read of it and we say, 'Well, we are insulated and it can't happen to us.' But because of this, I can say to any one of us, well, it can happen."
Laughter filled the room when Dale PERSAUD took the microphone with a rap about his older brother. Even his dad, who last month said, "I can't be happy, I can't laugh," smiled.
And more laughter yet when Ajith DURAIRAJ told the story of going with PERSAUD as support to his now widow's home this summer to ask her parents for permission to marry their daughter.
A few months later, DURAIRAJ made the long drive to Edmonton with his good friend. PERSAUD had heard about the wealth on the oil rigs and wanted to make money to bring home to his new bride. The two would spend 24 hours a day together for their five weeks in Alberta's capital, right up until the shooting.
"Today we're here to celebrate his life, but it's kind of hard to celebrate with so much tragedy," DURAIRAJ said, before relapsing to the moments after PERSAUD was shot.
"Dave was lying on the floor and I'm holding him and giving him water, and he was just looking up at me," said DURAIRAJ, who was standing between two people, including PERSAUD, just before they were shot dead. "If it wasn't for Dave on that day, I wouldn't be alive either."
"I remember Dave just nudging me and when he did that, I fell back. Everyone was shot once and Dave had two bullets. If he didn't do that, I wouldn't be here today."
Feben PERSAUD took the microphone, clad in a colourful dress with her hair done up. A month after her husband was killed, she's smiling again.
"The last month has been very difficult," she said. "I couldn't see my life continuing without Dave by my side."
But, she continued, "Even though Dave's death was a great loss, it has brought each and every one of us closer together."
The young woman spoke of love as she read a poem PERSAUD wrote for her: "Finding out what the end is going to be is realizing it has an end," she read, her tears keeping her from continuing.
On November 2, the same day police announced an arrest in the triple slaying, Feben PERSAUD told an Edmonton newspaper she forgave whoever shot the man she'd married just six weeks prior. That statement was praised by the father of Dwayne Anthony NELSON, who stands accused of the murders, through a taped phone message played at Saturday's gathering.
"It brought tears to my eyes," Oswald NELSON -- whose son is charged with three counts of second-degree murder -- said of her public statement.
"We are feeling your pain and we are experiencing a whole lot of pain also," he said. "I will remember Dave and you (Feben) and his Friends and family and hellip; may God bless you all."
Said the father: "I'm very proud of these 21 years, eight months and 25 days Dave has been my son. He will live on in my heart and in my memory forever."

DURNAN, Bill, 1972 -- Died This Day
Athlete born in Toronto on January 22, 1915
Regarded as the greatest National Hockey League goaltender of his day, he was tall but quick with an ability to catch and block shots with either hand. He spent nine years in the minors until he was finally accepted by the Montreal Canadiens at 29. In the end, he led the club to two Stanley Cups and won six Vezina Trophies in seven years. He also racked up four consecutive shutouts in 1948-49, a record that stood until 2004. He retired in 1950 with a career goals-against-average of 2.36 and was the last goalie to be a captain in the National Hockey League.
