VAN GRINSVEN, Tiny
In memory of a very special person, Tiny VAN GRINSVEN, who left us October 2, 2005.
To Mom, a poem was the greatest gift
She knew it was heartfelt and gave her a lift.
With love, poems were written and read
With a rhyming verse, we said what needed to be said.
Our poems are a family tradition
Mom would sit and write hers in the kitchen.
Our verses were often quite funny
To her, valued more than mere money.
Moms Friends were important to her and very dear
We know who you are, because you were all there.
When folks are talking and reminisce about Mom
They use one common word and it is Fun!
She was an avid gardener, with a green thumb
She'd be planting, fertilizing, weeding and then some.
When her work was completed in the yard
She loved bowling and also playing cards.
Be it a joke or a story, Mom amused everyone
My, but did she enjoy having Fun!
She was a caring and compassionate grandmother
12 grandchildren could wish for no other.
She was a great-grandma to three
Yes, there was… still room on her knee.
Mom helped run the business
To this we were all witness.
She was a wonderful wife
To John, The Love of Her Life.
She remained so strong
Even after Dad was gone
She never quit doing for others
This was the woman we (so proudly, called Mother.
Then our time came to take care of you
And we all felt it was important to do.
When you needed us, we rallied around
We were all there, Mom, I'm sure youd be proud.
The love you shared throughout your years
We will cherish and remember, despite the tears.
This poem to you will not be the last
Well be talking to you, as we remember the past.
With love forever, your family

VAN GRINSVEN, Tiny
In memory of Tiny VAN GRINSVEN, who passed away October 2, 2005.
A year has gone by without you now
And I still struggle with why and how.
You raised us all to care for others
As brothers, sisters, and mothers.
Yet, here we are without you
And we really dont know what to do.
I sometimes think you taught us too well
On our own problems you said never to dwell.
When Dad passed on, that lesson pulled us through
We had not to think of our loss, but the loss for others like you.
But now you're both gone, and our grief is ours alone
Our family has changed in ways no one could have known.
In honour of your spirit, this poem cant be all sad
We miss you so much, but are happy to know youre with Dad.
We see your Friends and, with a smile, they mention your name
They squeeze our hand and say they still miss your card game.
Your grandchildren still admire and brag about all you did
Your costumes, jokes, and gummy bears, you were the biggest kid.
Your roses still bloom, their scent is divine
The only difference is their garden is now mine.
Your strength, your humour, your love will never die
It carries on in our hearts and in the tears we still cry.
We cry and we laugh, we gather and we go our separate ways
We reminisce of years gone by and we pray for better days.
If I had just one wish, it would be for me
To be the kind of wife and mother I've always known you to be.
Dream a little dream of me.
All my love, Teresa FISCHTNER

Man chased by car, hacked in 'set up' machete slaying
First-degree murder warrant issued
One of 3 homicides in 4½-hour period
By John DUNCANSON and Betsy POWELL, Staff Reporter
Piratheep THARMAKULASINGAM was walking home, unaware someone lay in wait.
He tried to run, but a man in a car chased the frightened unemployed factory worker down a quiet Scarborough street around 10 a.m. Sunday.
The driver then got out of the car and repeatedly hacked at THARMAKULASINGAM's head and body with a machete before fleeing. THARMAKULASINGAM, who was going through a marital separation, was found on the lawn of a home on Huntsmill Blvd. The 25-year-old died in hospital of severe neck wounds, one of three homicides in a 4½-hour period early Sunday. He is to be cremated Thursday.
According to the dead man's brother, Suren, his older sibling was attacked after he had left his "lover's" home after arguing with her. Suren is convinced "Deep" was set up.
Police issued a first-degree murder warrant yesterday for Sujan ABEYEWARDENE, 19, of Richmond Hill. Suren, 23, said his "much-loved" brother didn't know the suspect, but the wanted man is the cousin of his brother's lover, a former girlfriend.
"What's the motive? He didn't even know him (the suspect)," Suren said as he gathered with Friends and family at their Chester Le Boulevard home. "He hid his emotions. He only lived for us, everyone loved him."
THARMAKULASINGAM's slaying, the 51st of the year, was the third homicide to take place over a 4½ hour period Sunday morning. The outburst of violence broke a relative calm in which there had been only three other homicides in the past month.
There are nine fewer homicides compared to this time last year and firearms slaying are down significantly.
The first homicide Sunday was a shooting some time before 5: 30 a.m. at a three-storey Parkdale apartment known to be used by drug addicts.
There they found Christopher James WHITE/WHYTE, 35, shot in the head, but still alive. He was taken to Saint Michael's Hospital where he died.
Detective Gary GRINTON said WHITE/WHYTE, who had an extensive criminal record, was last seen at Dufferin and King Sts. around 6 p.m. Saturday night. He was found shot on the second floor of the building, which police know as a site where drug addicts hang out.
Two hours after WHITE/WHYTE was shot, police in Scarborough received a 911 call from a home on Bridlington Street, just off Bellamy Rd. near Ellesmere Rd.
A father found his son, Patrick SANTOS, dead in the family's backyard just steps from the back door about 7: 30 a.m.

GRIPTON, James MacPherson
By Jude GRIPTON and Jamie GRIPTON, Page A20
Professor of social work, father, lover of music and theatre, gourmet. Born October 19, 1921, in Toronto. Died November 2, 2005, in Calgary, of complications due to heart disease, aged James GRIPTON was a formidable man. He grew up in a world of privilege, with he and his sister Catherine alternating between homes in Toronto, Port Hope and Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario As the eldest, and the only son, he was bred to take over the family business, The Canada Stamp Co. But Jim was a rebel. He spoke of change and new ideas.
When he attended the University of Toronto, he studied social work rather than law as his family had ordained. Jim persevered and was one of the first to earn a doctorate of social work in Canada, in the 1950s. He had a 60-year career in social work, which took him from the Children's Aid Society working in downtown Toronto, and establishing the first day-camp for inner city kids, to the University of Calgary where he served as professor long after his so-called retirement.
Along the way he worked for the federal government, taught social work at Carleton and at the universities of Denver and Calgary. He is renowned as a leading-edge thinker in human sexuality, the use of computers and the application of scientific rigour and experimental design in clinical research.
Jim, our Dad, is another story. We cherish memories of his warmth, humour, passion and compassion. Jude was just a baby when Jim and our mother, Evelyn, brought home two teenagers, Eddie and Ralphie, wards of Children's Aid. Dad fathered them through high-school and university. He saw them achieve careers in education and journalism -- two of many lives changed by dad's caring.
Dad was a carpenter. He built wooden toys, play sets for my mother's day-care centres, our cottage at Kasshabog Lake, and best of all, a full-size playhouse for Jude and a sandbox for Jamie. Dad loved all kinds of music and theatre. We watched with wonder as Dad "air-conducted" orchestras and we listened to him "star" in musicals in our living room. At age 83, he attended his first Bob Dylan concert in search of Jamie's muse (Jamie an acknowledged Dylan scholar).
Dad was a traveller. Together we visited museums and art galleries. Over the past 30 years he travelled extensively with his partner Mary VALENTICH and their son, our brother Stuart.
Dad was a gourmet. Sensory delight was adventure. Jude remembers him saying to her, a girl of 6: "Taste this creamy blue cheese dressing. It's delicious." She did, and it was; as well, it was the beginning of her more than 30 years as a chef.
Dad was a cottager. Our cottage was a family retreat. Dad would show his athletic side, especially his water-skiing. At the end of a slalom ride around the lake, there was the perfect glide to shore.
Dad was truly a gentle soul, although his passion for life gave us glimpses into his Scottish temper. We saw him bang his head on the door frame and throw a file or two when frustrated; and occasionally heard him shout "Bloody idiot!" from our car window. Although we were distanced for many years, we came back together in the later stage of Dad's life. Jude remembers Dad coming to visit her lakeside cottage. "He'd put work aside. We'd canoe, swim, gourmandize, listen to music, solve the unsolvable problems of the world and revel in cherished memories." In the evening, sitting on the dock, watching the glorious sunset, Dad would hold up his glass of wine in toast: "Ah," he sighed with his little chuckle and his big smile, "This is the life!"
Judith and Jamie are two of Jim's children; they wrote this with help from Jamie's wife Christine GRIPTON.

GRIPTON, Jamie
By Paul BAGNELL, Page A22
Minister, radio host, Bob Dylan fan, husband, father. Born July 10, 1956, in Toronto. Died December 5, 2005 of cancer, in Sackville, New Brunswick, aged 49.
At Mel's Tea Room in Sackville, New Brunswick, there were days every once in a while when a sheepish drifter would walk through the door and pass a handwritten note to a waitress.
The note would read something like this: "Please provide this person with a meal. I will pay for it the next time I come by. Jamie."
Jamie GRIPTON was the minister of Sackville United Church, just a block from that restaurant. He saw social justice as his mission, and spent his career defending life's underdogs.
Jamie drew inspiration from John Steinbeck's 1939 masterpiece The Grapes of Wrath, his favourite novel. Jim Casy, a former preacher fighting for the rights of migrant fruit pickers, is the book's spiritual voice.
"The search for justice guides Casy," says Jamie's close friend Rev. John Perkin. "And it guided Jamie."
At Sackville United, he unequivocally supported the congregation's still-controversial decision to fully embrace gays and lesbians. His Sunday sermons could be unorthodox (his final effort made reference to hockey sensation Sidney Crosby) but his knowledge of scripture ran deep.
Jamie was a huge fan of the music, and particularly the words, of Bob Dylan. He hosted a weekly program on Dylan at Mount Allison University's campus radio station. He called the show Buckets of Bob and, in it, invited listeners into what he called "the musical conversation between Bob Dylan and the Word."
Twice, he wrote Lives Lived articles for The Globe and Mail, each time on the life of a member of his congregation. He collaborated on a third about his father.
Jamie was born in Toronto and raised there and in Ottawa. His teenage years had more than a fair share of turmoil (he would later marvel at the unconditional love shown to him by his mother), but Jamie abruptly reversed course in his mid-twenties. He found a Christian faith that illuminated the path ahead.
After graduating from Toronto's Emmanuel College in 1987, Jamie packed his belongings into a battered Ford Mustang and drove the 2,900-kilometre road to Fogo Island, Newfoundland. He was a newly ordained minister in the United Church of Canada, and had been given a four-point charge of churches, serving the tiny communities of Fogo, Seldom, Stag Harbour, Joe Batt's Arm and Barr'd Islands (these two served by one church).
During a visit to an ailing congregation member, Jamie met his future wife. Christine PIKE had come to Fogo Island from Corner Brook with her daughter Amy to work as a nurse at Fogo Island Cottage Hospital. In September, 1988, they were wed. ("We're getting married!" proclaimed three-year-old Amy.) Daughters Rosasharon and Tina were born over the next three years.
In 1992, after three years at Wesley United Church in Saint_John's, Jamie was posted to the Methodist Church of Jamaica in Port Antonio, on Jamaica's northeast coast. Here, just as in Fogo Island, he ministered to a charge of four small churches. When his church-provided car broke down, he travelled between them by motorcycle.
During these years, Jamie completed a doctoral degree from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. The family left Jamaica for Sackville in 1997.
When news of his inoperable cancer circulated during the summer and autumn of 2005, many of the people whose lives had been touched by Jamie reached out to touch him back.
During a final conversation with a friend, he reflected. "People are kind," Jamie said. "That's what I've learned."
Paul BAGNELL is a friend of Jamie GRIPTON.
