Losing a mother is like losing apart of yourself. A part of yourself that you can't function without. People tell you it gets better with time, but the holes in our hearts are shaped like you. How can it heal, when no one can fill those holes but you?
Love Always, Stacey and Shannon

Cop shot dead in Windsor
Two 18-year-olds are arrested after gunfire is exchanged in a Mac's Milk parking lot.
By Canadian Press, Sat., May 6, 2006
Windsor -- Residents here were stunned yesterday after witnessing a daylight shootout in a residential neighbourhood that ended with a veteran plainclothes police officer lying dead on a sidewalk and two teens in custody.
The victim was 37-year-old Const. John ATKINSON, a 14-year veteran of the force and a father of a six-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son.
ATKINSON was on duty when he spotted some suspicious men at a Mac's Milk convenience store and went into action, said Windsor Police Chief Glenn STANNARD.
He was struck by a bullet, but was able to return fire before the suspects ran off. Police later arrested two 18-year-old Windsor men. They have not yet been charged.
STANNARD said the community and police are outraged by the shooting, which is like nothing they'd seen before.
"Although we have had in our history three officers killed as a result of car accidents, to the best of my knowledge, this is the first officer in the history of more than 120 years of the Windsor Police Service that an officer has been murdered," he said.
One of ATKINSON's close Friends informed his wife of the shooting, which happened shortly after 2 p.m.
STANNARD, Windsor Mayor Eddie FRANCIS and other members of the police force visited the officer's family.
"What do you say?" STANNARD said about speaking with ATKINSON's wife and two young children. "You do what your heart leads you with. It's a tragic thing. You share tears and you share hugs.
"The policing community, for those who don't know, is a very close-knit community and police officers were there and they'll share their times with the family."
The shooting unfolded before many witnesses, who were shocked by what they saw.
The owner of the Mac's Milk declined to comment on the shooting, saying she was worried for her life.
A store employee identified as Emma said she saw the two men in the parking lot when suddenly she heard gunfire.
"We heard gunshots and a guy was bleeding from his mouth, and then we were told he was a policeman," she said.
Dennis ROCHON said he was sitting on his balcony in a nearby apartment building when he heard three loud shots, which he first thought was a car backfiring. He went outside to investigate and saw the victim covered in blood and lying on the sidewalk.
"There was no movement," he said. "There was blood all over the place. It looked like he got shot in the throat and the side of the chest. You could tell he was dead."
A man, who identified himself only as Terry, said after the shooting, the victim stumbled for three or four metres before collapsing.
"He tried to get up and he fell again."
Lloyd MENARD, who was in the store at the time, said onlookers couldn't believe their eyes or their ears.
"At first, a couple of people thought they were just like poppers on the ground, but no, it was actually gunfire," he said. "My truck's got blood all over it, so those kids must have shot him right there."
One local resident said people in the city will likely be shaken up as they are not used to gun violence, despite their proximity to the United States.
"This is very rare indeed for Windsor," said Patty HANDYSIDES of Windsor radio station CKLW. " Even though we are right across the river from Detroit, gun crime is low in Windsor, and certainly death by gun is very, very rare."
At least eight elementary schools and one high school in the area were initially locked down in the shooting's aftermath, keeping as many as 3,400 students indoors. A nearby day-care centre was also put under lockdown.
By 5 p.m., all students were allowed to leave, although they were told not to walk home alone or stop and play, said Supt. Steve SCHNIEDER/SNIDER/SNYDER of the Greater Essex County District school board.
Nearby residents were also advised to remain in their homes.
Ontario Premier Dalton McGUINTY released a statement last night in praise of ATKINSON and the work of all police officers.
"The loss of one of our officers is a tragedy for all of us. I don't know that there are words strong or eloquent enough to capture the courage it takes to put one's self in harm's way, in order to keep others safe," he said.

Constable shot to death in Windsor, 2 arrested
By Oliver MOORE, Page A2
An undercover police officer was slain yesterday in an exchange of gunfire outside a convenience store in Windsor, Ontario
Senior Constable John ATKINSON, a married father of two, is believed to be the first officer shot dead on duty in the history of the Windsor police force.
Two 18-year-old men were arrested after a short but intense search.
"This is a man who obviously did the right thing at the right time and he paid for it," Windsor Police Chief Glenn STANNARD said at a news conference with the mayor. "There's no question our community is outraged." The shooting occurred shortly after 2 p.m. and resulted in immediate protective measures at local schools. Students were allowed to leave about three hours later but were told to go straight home.
According to the results of the preliminary investigation, Constable ATKINSON, 37, became suspicious of a pair of young men. As he moved closer, officers said, one of these men produced a weapon and fired at him. He was hit once but managed to return fire before falling to the sidewalk, mortally wounded.
A witness told The Canadian Press that the constable stumbled for three or four metres before collapsing. "He tried to get up, and he fell again," said the man, who identified himself only as Terry.
Other witnesses: described confusion as people mistook the gunshots for firecrackers. Police and emergency crews flooded the scene and the slain officer was quickly covered with a blanket.
The two suspects fled but were arrested not far away, about 40 minutes later. They had not sustained any gunshot wounds, officers said. A firearm was recovered, though police said it was not known whether that was the weapon that killed Constable ATKINSON.
Before speaking publicly, the chief visited the constable's widow and their two children, aged 9 and 7.
"You share tears and you share hugs," he said, describing the scene at the ATKINSON home. "We put in place the supports we wished we never had to use."
Chief STANNARD -- who was joined at the family home by a close police friend of the slain constable, a minister and Mayor Eddie FRANCIS -- described Constable ATKINSON, a 14-year veteran, as a man passionate about policing.
"He loved this job," the chief said. At the evening news conference, Mr. FRANCIS reiterated the chief's outrage. "Today the entire city mourns the loss of a dedicated individual."
The shooting occurred only one day before an annual ceremony at Queen's Park commemorating police officers killed in the line of duty.

Officer shot dead, 2 teens in custody
By Peter EDWARDS in Windsor Nicolaas VAN RIJN in Toronto with files from Scott ROBERTS, Camille ROSS and Canadian Press, Page A1
A Windsor police officer who "couldn't wait to go to work" was shot dead yesterday afternoon while coming to the aid of a harassed family operating a Mac's Milk convenience store in a residential section of the border city.
Two 18-year-old male suspects are in custody and a gun has been seized, Windsor police Insp. Greg RENAUD told a news conference last night.
Const. John ATKINSON, 37, the father of two young children, is believed to be the first officer in the more than 120-year history of the Windsor force to be killed on duty, said Windsor police Chief Glenn STANNARD, who noted three other officers have died in car accidents.
As word of the 14-year police veteran's death rippled across the border city, the shock was palpable.
"Today the entire city mourns the loss of a dedicated individual, a committed individual who put service above self," said Windsor Mayor Eddie FRANCIS.
Police said the incident, at 2: 05 p.m. in a parking lot near Seminole St. and Pillette Rd., in a residential neighbourhood about half a dozen blocks south of the Detroit River, began when ATKINSON approached two men.
According to local residents, ATKINSON, who lived in the neighbourhood, was responding to a call for help from the Middle Eastern family who operated the milk store. They'd complained of being harassed by "white kids," neighbours said; when they told ATKINSON about it he suggested they call him if it happened again.
They did, and he responded quickly to confront the two men, neighbours said, producing his badge and identification. That's when one of the two men allegedly pulled a gun and shot him.
STANNARD said ATKINSON "approached these individuals and during this time a firearm was produced and Const. ATKINSON was shot. Const. ATKINSON was struck by a bullet, but was able to return fire."
"The two suspects," STANNARD added, "were seen fleeing the area on foot after the shooting, leaving the officer lying on the sidewalk. And it is possible, when the suspects were fleeing, some items were discarded, such as clothing."
Two 18-year-old Windsor men -- uninjured -- were arrested shortly afterwards during a massive police search, and a firearm was recovered, but police won't say if the weapon was related to the shooting.
Investigators also wouldn't say how many times the officer, assigned to the provincial anti-terrorism section, was hit. But local residents said ATKINSON was hit at least twice, once in the throat and chest.
Dennis ROCHON was sitting on his balcony in a nearby apartment building when he heard three loud shots. Rushing outside, he found ATKINSON on the pavement.
"There was no movement," ROCHON said. "There was blood all over the place. It looked like he got shot in the throat and the side of the chest. You could tell he was dead."
Another man, identified only as Terry, said he saw ATKINSON struggling, stumbling three or four metres before collapsing.
"He tried to get up, and he fell again," Terry said.
Lloyd MENARD, in the store at the time, thought he was hearing things when the gunfire broke out.
"At first, a couple of people thought they were just like poppers on the ground, but no, it was actually gunfire," he said. "My truck's got blood all over it, so those kids must have shot him right there."
After the two suspects were taken into custody, Special Weapons and Tactics teams scoured the neighbourhood for a possible third participant in the shooting, but police later said there may only have been the two suspects.
ATKINSON, a senior constable who started with the force as a cadet, was known as a "good cop," STANNARD said.
The chief, FRANCIS, a chaplain and several of ATKINSON's on-the-force Friends visited the slain officer's wife, Shelley, and his children yesterday afternoon in an effort to console the family. ATKINSON's daughter Nicole turned 7 this week; his son Mitchell is 9.
During the family visit, STANNARD said, tears flowed freely.
"You do what your heart leads you with," STANNARD told reporters last night when asked about the visit.
"It's a tragic thing, and I think the best I can do is say you share tears, and you share hugs."
STANNARD said he and the Windsor police honour guard will be in Toronto, as planned, for the annual memorial ceremony of remembrance at the Ontario Police Memorial tomorrow at 10: 45 a.m. The memorial, at Grosvenor St. and Queen's Park Circle E., commemorates Ontario police officers slain on duty.
"Our honour guard and I will be attending… obviously with heavy hearts," the chief said.

Jack McARTHUR, 79: Star editor, columnist
Former business editor knew his stuff
'He was a wonderful curmudgeon'
By Kenneth KIDD, Feature Writer
You could almost get the measure of Jack McARTHUR just by looking at him, not least in what became his natural environment.
Until well into the 1980s, the Toronto Star newsroom was still a sepia place, littered with clanging old typewriters and big, black telephones. The air was filled with yellow smoke.
And there McARTHUR would sit, stooped over his Underwood with a White Owl cigar in his mouth, wearing the same grey cardigan he donned every day at work.
When McARTHUR was writing his business column -- and he did that five times a week, plus a stock market wrap-up for Saturday -- there wasn't a better portrait of sheer concentration amid chaos.
That is how it came to pass that one day, mid-column, McARTHUR blindly tried to put his cigar in the ashtray behind him. He missed. The White Owl rolled away on his desk and was soon igniting a pile of papers.
But McARTHUR just kept on typing, hardly glancing back as John HONDERICH -- then ostensibly his boss as business editor -- rushed over to douse the flames.
"Firefighting was only one part of being the business editor," says HONDERICH, who went on to be the Star's publisher. "Keeping Jack happy was the other. He was a wonderful curmudgeon, truly one of the greats who knew his stuff inside out. He lived business through and through and he was a prolific column writer."
McARTHUR, who retired from the Star in 1991 but kept on writing three freelance columns a week for many years, died Tuesday (May 9) at age 79.
A two-finger typist of the old school, McARTHUR "sounded like a Gatling gun when he was hammering out his column," recalls Star columnist James DAW.
His pronouncements were often pithy, tart and knowing. And despite his intimidating appearance, younger reporters would often seek his expert opinion, usually in the minutes before deadline.
McARTHUR's standard response always began with a kind of howling, half-moan: "Aaaaagghh." That would be followed by something axiomatic, like this one about stock-market gains or losses that investors hadn't actually realized by selling the stock in question: "It was only paper then and it's only paper now."
"God, how I loved him," recalls Diane FRANCIS, who got her start in business journalism at the Star in the 1980s. "We were all kind of frightened of him, but his bark was worse than his bite. He was crusty, but boy, he knew lots."
McARTHUR was likely the only person in the department who read every Bank of Canada Review from cover to cover, along with piles of Statistics Canada reports. But except for his weekly story on the stock market, numbers rarely made their way into his columns.
"He'd just done the research in order to tell the story," says DAW.
And he had a way of seeing through complexity and spin-doctoring, says Helen HENDERSON, a former assistant financial editor and now Star columnist. "He could boil it down to its essence, into something you could understand, without ever talking down to you."
Saskatchewan-born in 1927, McARTHUR went on to take a degree in political science and economics at the University of Saskatchewan before launching his career in journalism. He worked at the Regina Leader-Post and The Western Producer before landing at the Financial Post, where he eventually became Montreal bureau chief.
Beland HONDERICH, then the Star's editor-in-chief, hired McARTHUR in 1960 as business editor, a post he held for the next 14 years, before going back to writing full-time.
In those days, editors also wrote columns and McARTHUR's personnel file soon became filled with praise from senior managers.
"What's he worth to the Star is almost incalculable," wrote one. "He's by far the best financial writer in Canada."
Writing was what mattered to McARTHUR, and he had little patience with the more bureaucratic aspects of newsroom management. Legend has it that McARTHUR once stopped going to management meetings unless Beland HONDERICH specifically asked for his presence.
In a typical memo to senior managers, McARTHUR had a blunt critique of a new budget-making process for the newsroom: "The new one seems fine in theory but bad in practice."
But McARTHUR had a soft underbelly. "The gentler side of Jack was that he was a mentor and a sage to many business reporters," says John HONDERICH. "He always had a moment of time to talk to people. He was a person I constantly went to seeking advice. His judgment was impeccable."
Kenneth KIDD worked with McARTHUR in the 1980s and served as the Star's business editor from 2000 to 2005.
