WALKER, Wally
The family of the late Wally WALKER are deeply grateful to so many people for all their love and support shown to us at this time of the loss of our wonderful Dad. Our grief was made easier when hearing all the kind words spoken by everyone about Dad. Dad touched many people with his smile, chuckle, gentleness and compassion for all living creatures. Thank you to everyone at Country Lane Nursing home, thank you seems inadequate for all that you did for our Dad and for us, but know that it is thank you that comes from our hearts, we will never forget your kindness, exemplary care, compassion and understanding. Special thanks to Rev. Bill VANDERSTELT for the lovely service befitting our Dad. Deep appreciation to Granddaughter, Alisha WARDELL, for her eulogy, no doubt Poppa was very proud. We would sincerely like to thank Jim CORBETT and staff of Currie Funeral Home for their support and attention to detail. We are truly touched by the many cards, flower arrangements, food brought to our homes, phone calls, words of encouragement and donations. Thank you for everything.
- Steve, Connie, John, Gwynne, Lisa and families.

WARDELL, Mearle
In loving memory of a dear wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Mearle WARDELL, who passed away 1 year ago, April 11, 2005.
Our lives go on without you
But nothing is the same
We have to hide our heartaches
When someone speaks your name.
Sad are the hearts that love you
Silent the tears that fall
Living our lives without you
Is the hardest part of all.
You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you.
The special years will not return
When we were all together
But with the love within our hearts
You will walk with us forever.
Sadly missed and lovingly remembered, Willis, Lloyde and Irene Evan and Willa, and families

Dad, 2 daughters killed in collision
By Debora VAN BRENK, Daniela SIMUNAC, April KEMICK and Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporters, Wed. May 31, 2006
A London man and his two daughters were killed Monday in a head-on collision so violent police weren't sure at first how many people had died.
John DAUBS, 49, and daughters, Ashley, 15, and Stephanie, 12, died when their car was crushed beneath a flatbed towed by a dump truck on Clarke Road near Kilally Road in the city's northeast.
Police are investigating whether the collision was intentional, mechanical or accidental, London police Const. Amanda PFEFFER said.
"It really is indescribable."
As word of the deaths spread at Clarke Road secondary school, where Ashley was in Grade 9, students there were overwhelmed with grief, said friend Taylor WAREHAM.
"People who knew (Ashley) were really upset and confused," said WAREHAM, who was on the track and field team with the popular student.
"There were so many people crying in the hallways. (Ashley) was such a happy outgoing girl," said Jordan CLAYTON, 15, a friend who laid flowers at the crash scene last night.
Friends described the 15-year-old track star as funny, athletic and outgoing, well-liked by peers.
Her younger sister, Stephanie, who was in Grade 7 at Bonaventure Meadows elementary school, was remembered by those who knew her as a smart, friendly, athletic girl with lots of Friends.
"She was always happy," said Murtaza REZAZADA, in Stephanie's class last year.
Carolyn WEBB, a retired Bonaventure kindergarten teacher who taught both girls and stayed in touch with the family, said the pair were "wonderful, loveable girls."
WEBB said John and his wife Debbie had recently separated, but the family remained tight.
"The parents were so dedicated to those girls -- they did everything for them," WEBB said, wiping her eyes.
"This is so devastating."
John's sister, Diane HALES, said last night the family was shocked to hear of the triple fatality early yesterday.
HALES said John was a "doting" dad who was a regular at the girls' many athletic and musical events.
"(John) was a proud father," she said, adding the two girls were "inseparable."
Those who knew John at the trailer park where he had lived and worked as manager for the last 10 years agreed.
"As a dad, he was always there for them," said Jim ANDREW, owner of the London Terrace trailer park on Dundas Street.
"John was very involved."
Overnight and into yesterday, a blue tarp covered the Chevy Citation, flattened by the dump truck.
Yesterday, about 12 London police officers walked shoulder to shoulder examining the road for evidence.
Another 10 blue-gloved officers scoured the ditches and the road edge, searched for clues that might explain why the northbound car slammed into the southbound truck.
The vehicles -- car, dump truck and a backhoe still secured to the truck's flatbed -- were pulled from the scene, but the road wasn't re-opened until yesterday, allowing police to investigate.
Police have interviewed the truck driver, who suffered minor injuries in the crash.
A dog in the car died yesterday.
Police ask any witnesses: to the crash to call 661-5670.

This Was Johnathon
In November 2003, Johnathon was beaten, thrown down the basement stairs in his Toronto home and stabbed 71 times -- his throat slashed. Yesterday, his mother sobbed as her only remaining child was handed a life sentence for the murder. Another teen, nicknamed Vampire Boy, was also sentenced as an adult for manslaughter
By Timothy APPLEBY, Armina LIGAYA and Hayley MICK, Page A12
Toronto -- For close to three years he was the 12-year-old Toronto boy with no face and only one name, cut and stabbed so ferociously that he drowned in his own blood.
He was simply "Johnathan," his identity shielded because one of the three teenagers accused of slaughtering him was his older brother, 16 at the time. Identifying the brother would have contravened provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act and so "Johnathan," much to the chagrin of his mother, was robbed not just of his life, but also of his identity.
But as sentence was passed yesterday on two of the three accused (the third was acquitted of all charges in February), a Superior Court judge ruled that the horrendous circumstances demanded the killers be dealt with as adults. And so, finally, the veil was lifted and Johnathon Robert MADDEN of Dawes Road, in Toronto's east Danforth area, can be named and seen, as his mother had asked the court.
Likewise unveiled are the two killers, Kevin MADDEN, a hulking, stone-faced figure, now almost 20, and his friend, Timothy FERRIMAN, nicknamed Vampire Boy for his professed fondness for sipping blood.
"The facts are horrific," Mr. Justice David McCOMBS concluded, outlining what he described as "a hideous, senseless crime."
Mr. MADDEN was found guilty of first-degree murder in February and yesterday was sentenced to life imprisonment for killing his little brother in the family home, cutting and slicing his face and neck 71 times with a butcher knife, severing both his voice box and his carotid artery.
Mr. MADDEN was also convicted of trying to murder his stepfather, Ralston CHAMPAGNIE, who was attacked with a knife and a baseball bat when he returned home that same afternoon in November of 2003. For that, he received a concurrent 10-year prison term, less three years spent in pretrial custody.
Two years of his life sentence will be served in a youth facility and the balance in a federal penitentiary, Judge McCOMBS ruled. Behind bars since the day after Johnathon was slain, he will be eligible to apply for parole in just over seven years.
Like all lifers, Mr. MADDEN will be under supervision for the rest of his days, if, or when, he goes free. He is not necessarily beyond all hope, the judge said.
In keeping with his icy demeanour throughout the trial, Mr. MADDEN showed not a shred of emotion yesterday. Mr. FERRIMAN, now 18 and convicted of manslaughter for his role in Johnathon's death, was slightly more animated, glancing around at the packed courtroom where his father, Timothy, sat.
Unlike Mr. MADDEN, Mr. FERRIMAN addressed the court during the sentencing hearing, apologizing for what he had done. The judge said yesterday he found the remorse of the "deeply disturbed" young man to be credible.
Mr. FERRIMAN did not stab the boy but he handed Mr. MADDEN the murder weapon and he helped move Johnathon's body.
On top of time served, Mr. FERRIMAN must spend two years less a day in the youth prison system -- in which he is said to have made significant rehabilitative progress -- followed by three years probation.
The judge's comments during the trial were laced with sympathy for the MADDEN family's ordeal of having one son murder another.
But for both prosecution and defence, the case was unusually taxing.
The first trial was aborted midway through jury deliberations after postings on a vampire-related Internet site -- the same one patronized by Montreal's Dawson College killer -- cast doubt on the veracity of a teenaged girl who was the Crown's key witness.
Fourteen years old at the time, the girl had tape-recorded a telephone call in which the two killers had bragged of plans to wipe out Mr. MADDEN's family, beginning with Johnathon. Less than an hour later, with the house vandalized and smashed up, Johnathon's 45-kilogram (100-pound) body was stuffed in a basement crawl space as the three accused awaited Mr. CHAMPAGNIE's return.
All were arrested within 24 hours.
Mr. MADDEN never disputed killing his brother, who "adored" him, their mother, Joanne CHAMPAGNIE, said in a heart-wrenching victim-impact statement.
Missing throughout the trial, however, was any persuasive insight into how Mr. MADDEN's rage boiled to such a peak that he wanted to annihilate his family.
After the verdicts, emotions were mixed.
Lead prosecutor Hank GOODY, who argued strenuously for adult sentences, declined comment.
But Mr. MADDEN's lawyer, Robert NUTTALL, who sought to have his client sentenced as a youth, said he would appeal the ruling.
"I'm disappointed for Kevin, everybody agrees that Kevin is a very troubled fellow," he said. "Kevin desperately needs treatment. And unfortunately, he's not going to get it."
He described Mr. MADDEN as a "deeply disturbed young man" -- not the psychopath perceived by Doctor Ian SWAYZE, a psychiatrist who examined him at length -- who would benefit from treatment within the youth justice system. "If he doesn't get treatment, he will remain a high risk to reoffend. The issue is, where's he going to get the treatment? It sounds like the [penitentiary] is not the place to get it."
John DENNIS, Mr. FERRIMAN's lawyer, called the past three years "a roller coaster ride" and said he, too, would appeal the decision to sentence the young men as adults.
Ms. CHAMPAGNIE said nothing.
Dressed in a ribbed beige sweater and dark pants and flanked by supporters, she started dabbing at her eyes as she took her seat in the first row, the same place she occupied for each day of the sentencing hearing, listening attentively to Judge McCOMBS.
Each time he alluded to the brutal murder, tears flowed, and when he described how Mr. FERRIMAN helped move the younger boy's body, she held her eyes tightly shut.
Talk of Mr. MADDEN's thoughts elicited a different reaction.
"[Kevin] has repeatedly stated that he has never loved anyone, and has never felt love from anyone," the judge said.
Ms. CHAMPAGNIE looked down and shook her head.
And when the judge told the court that Mr. MADDEN blames his mother for not protecting him, she again shook her head.
She didn't react when Mr. MADDEN's sentence was announced.
But she burst into tears when Judge McCOMBS offered his condolences to her family.
She wanted Johnathon's identity revealed, she told the trial earlier, because she wanted him to be remembered -- to have a face.
When she realized yesterday the publication ban could be lifted, she exhaled a sigh of relief.
Homicide squad Detective Sergeant Terry WARK, who became close to the family throughout their ordeal, said later that Ms. CHAMPAGNIE was content with the outcome and still wants to be in Mr. MADDEN's life.
"But she realizes he needs help," Det. Sgt. WARK said. "She's happy that he'll be in a youth facility for the next two years, because he has been getting a lot of help in there."
The judge's ruling was fair, he said. "He was very compassionate to the family, but I think his sentence today was very helpful to the two boys, and it also gets across the message of deterrence."
Dr. SWAYZE also voiced approval.
Mr. MADDEN, he said, is "salvageable to the extent that he's relatively young, and he hasn't had a lifetime of entrenched antisocial attitudes."
Johnathon and Kevin's biological father, also named Kevin MADDEN and estranged from Ms. CHAMPAGNIE since 1993, had no comment on the ruling.
After the sentencing, the brothers' aunt, Wendy EBERHARDT, read a statement on behalf of her family.
"We are relieved to see an end to the trial," she said. "We are pleased that Kevin and Tim are going to get help with their problems. We're relieved to have Johnathon's full name released, so that we can now properly memorialize him."
'BF's 4-ever'
He'd grown up building forts, hurling mud pies with his Friends and playing Little League.
Now he was 12, and larger horizons beckoned.
His voice was beginning to break, he'd started junior high and girls were on his mind.
His best friend's grandmother recalled the fair, blue-eyed boy plunking down at her kitchen table on a November day, three years ago, and musing about a crush. Where should he take her for dinner? he wondered.
None of it would come to pass.
A few weeks later, Johnathon MADDEN was ambushed and stabbed to death by his older brother Kevin, becoming Toronto's 59th homicide victim of 2003.
Until yesterday, he could not be identified, because his name would reveal those of his accused killers.
"He just had a sweetness about him," said the grandmother of his best friend, Nathan. "We miss him."
Johnathon Robert MADDEN was born in Toronto on May 11, 1991, the second son of Joanne and Kevin MADDEN.
The pair separated when Kevin was 7 and Johnathon 3. Their mother remarried soon after the divorce.
The court heard that while a teenaged Kevin had problems in class, at home and with the law, Johnathon led a happy childhood.
"Johnathon was a compassionate boy. He was worried about what was going on in his family. And loved his brother," said the woman, who did not want to be identified.
Johnathon and Nathan lived blocks apart in North York and, for six years, they were inseparable. They built forts, attended Raptors games with Johnathon's family and revelled in nicki-nicki-nine-door "missions."
One weekend, they dotted Nathan's grandmother's yard with holes and had mud fights.
The summer they were 9, they had a marathon number of sleepovers that lasted three weeks.
On the last day of his life, Johnathon walked Nathan home after a snowball fight.
Hours later, the boy was slashed to death by his brother in the basement of his family home.
Nathan, 10 at the time of the killing, testified at two trials held for his friend's accused killers. The first ended in a mistrial.
Johnathon's mother, now Ms. CHAMPAGNIE, wants her son to be remembered, and created a memorial website (http://www.johnathon-madden.memory-of.com). In it, Johnathon is remembered as the boy with the big smile who loved tacos, saltfish and making people laugh.
His aunt, Margo ANDERSON, wrote: "To my nephew, may you enjoy skateboarding with the angels."
A classmate wrote: "You always were the funny one in the class."
And Nathan STEVENSON, Johnathon's co-conspirator, mud-fight rival and sleepover buddy, wrote that he misses his best friend, signing it "BF's 4-ever."

'You just don't understand'
During the three years that homicide investigator Detective Sergeant Terry WARK helped shape the prosecution case against Kevin MADDEN, the accused responded to his many questions just once.
"I said to him, 'Kevin, this was your brother. How could you do this?' " the policeman recalled.
"And he said, 'You don't understand. It built up. You just don't understand.' That's the only thing he ever said to me, he never said another word."
Blond, tall and broad shouldered -- he weighed about 230 pounds when he killed his young brother -- Mr. MADDEN appeared to listen carefully during his two murder trials, occasionally peering around the room with his cold, flat eyes.
But he never testified and only once did he display any emotion.
That was when his mother, Joanne CHAMPAGNIE, described her pain and her love for both of her sons.
Her words left Mr. MADDEN sobbing quietly, rocking in his chair in the prisoners' box.
To the end, the teenaged killer was an enigma.
Mr. MADDEN's history -- moving from house to house after his parents' marriage failed, habitual truancy at 10 different schools, alcohol abuse that started at the age of 12, sharing his home with a stepfather he hated -- offered some grim early warning signs.
When he killed his 12-year-old brother, he was already on probation over threats he had made to schoolmates
He also threatened to blow up one school. He was suspended at least six times from the last high school he attended.
Some observers -- including the judge who sentenced him to life imprisonment yesterday -- nonetheless see a glimmer of hope, because of his youth.
So does his biological father.
"He's got ambition now," Kevin MADDEN Sr. told the court after visiting his son in custody. "He wants to get good grades, wants to be productive, he seems like a totally different person."
Prosecutor Hank GOODY saw things entirely differently.
"Mr. MADDEN is now the same person psychologically as he was November 23, 2003," he told the court. "And is likely to remain the same psychologically for the foreseeable future."
And forensic psychiatrist Doctor Ian SWAYZE painted a picture that was alarming.
"He really is sort of a smouldering volcano, with steam coming out of the vents," he testified.
"These explosions of anger are not out of character, not aberrant. There's a cascade towards a terrible event… a path towards disaster."

Woman in car fatally shot
Struck in the head; boyfriend wounded in leg
Gunman fired through partly opened window
By Betsy POWELL and John DUNCANSON, Staff Reporters
Police are looking for a motive in a double shooting that left a 27-year-old woman dead and her boyfriend wounded in a car outside a west-end bar early yesterday.
After receiving a 911 call at 2: 13 a.m., officers located 32-year-old Michael DENNETT and his girlfriend, Dianna SANDEMAN, in a black, two-door BMW parked in front of the Europa Café and Sports Bar on Browns Line, just south of Horner Ave.
The couple, who had been together for 3½ years, had been inside the bar with five or six Friends celebrating Italy's victory over Germany in the World Cup semifinal, homicide Det. Sgt. Terry WARK said.
Police said a man approached the passenger side of the car and fired into the partially opened window, fatally wounding SANDEMAN and injuring DENNETT, who was in the driver's seat.
It appeared she was shot in the head, while he was struck in the leg. DENNETT is recovering in hospital. An autopsy is scheduled for this morning.
A handgun was recovered by police on the front lawn of a home on a nearby residential street.
The car was parked in the southbound curb lane about six metres from the Europa's front door. A bullet hole could be seen on the outside of the driver's door.
WARK said police had little to go on so far.
The handful of patrons in the bar and bar staff, who are not considered suspects, have all been interviewed and were co-operative, police said.
Investigators interviewed DENNETT, who couldn't provide a motive. After leaving the vehicle, he saw the gunman, whom he described as skinny and wearing a sweatshirt and jeans, police said.
The BMW was leased to SANDEMAN and DENNETT, who lived together in a condominium.
Earlier this year, DENNETT and SANDEMAN were charged with assault causing bodily harm after two people were attacked with a hammer inside a Walmer Rd. apartment on March 18.
Court records show that DENNETT pleaded guilty and was convicted of the reduced charge of assault in April. He was given a 10-day jail sentence, which he served on weekends. He was also put on probation for 18 months and was banned from owning weapons for 10 years.
SANDEMAN's assault charge was withdrawn.
WARK said he was "aware of the charge" but that there was nothing yet to suggest the two incidents were connected.
Yesterday afternoon inside the small sports bar, the big-screen television was tuned to a local news channel broadcasting details of the shooting.
A woman standing behind the bar said she didn't know anything about the incident.
The Europa is beside a Japanese and Korean food restaurant, a video rental outlet and a massage parlour. The businesses back onto a quiet residential area.
A witness who did not want to be identified said he saw the male victim recline the passenger seat so that the mortally wounded woman could lie back.
He also told her that help was on the way, the man said.
