STODDART, Hazel
In loving memory of a dear Mother and Grandmother, Hazel, who passed away June 30, 1995.
There is nothing treasured and nothing so rare,
As the love of a mother that a family could share.
Through joy, through laughter, through sorrow and tears,
There develops a closeness that grows through the years.
This love that we share doesn't need to be spoken,
It's a wonderful bond that can never be broken,
To us, Mother, you were someone special
We miss you more each day,
The saddest day of our lives
Was the day you passed away.
- Lovingly remembered and sadly missed by your family.

Bob, better known as "Gamps", enjoyed taking on many roles from contestant on The Price is Right to a professional pumpkin carver on Halloween.
In 1994 Bob and Joan retired sold their home and moved back to their old haunts. They built their new home at Lake Eugenia where they made many new Friends. Bob loved the outdoors, enjoyed becoming a snow bird in Florida and most of all spending time with his family and Friends.

Church overflowing for funeral of 'bright star'
'Don't let his name be forgotten,' uncle asks during two-hour ceremony
By Alex DOBROTA, Page A14
To his Friends and relatives, he was an artistic teenager with a fascination for snakes and pranks, who still sucked on his thumb at times - a star that burned out ahead of its time.
But to the hundreds of mourners who knew him little yet still showed up to celebrate his memory yesterday, Jordan MANNERS became an icon for the damage gun crime has wrought in their community.
Thirty minutes before the funeral of the 15-year-old began yesterday morning, the main room at Christian Centre Church, near Jane Street and Finch Avenue, was already filled to capacity.
Hundreds more people packed the hallways, the balconies and a nearby gymnasium to watch a live feed of the proceedings. About 200 stood outside the church braving scorching heat. About as many waited at Beechwood Cemetery.
"I think it really struck a chord in the minds of people," said Pastor Dino ANDREADIS, who officiated at the ceremony. "I've done high-profile funerals, but never like this. I think this will really make a difference."
The church has a capacity of about 1,000 and Mr. ANDREADIS estimates more than 1,500 showed up yesterday.
The teen was shot last Wednesday inside his school, C.W. Jefferys Collegiate Institute. Two 17-year-old youths have been charged with first-degree murder.
After collapsing with grief on a chair steps away from his coffin, his mother, Laureen SMALL, took one last look at her son. She then watched pallbearers close the casket and the two-hour-long ceremony began.
One of Jordan's aunts told how he sucked on his thumb at times during his sleep. One of his teachers described how he easily reproduced a complicated architecture diagram in less than an hour. And the story of how Jordan brought snakes into his house elicited a rare moment of laughter.
"The world lost a bright, bright star," his aunt, Louisa MANNERS, said during her eulogy.
During one of the most emotional moments, Jordan's school mate and friend, Matthew ALAY, burst into tears and was unable to read a speech, which was delivered by a relative. "Jordan, may your soul rest in peace. I love you," the boy only managed to utter between sobs.
Other relatives said Jordan's death should serve as a call to action against gun violence in the community. "He's not a statistic," his uncle Gregory STOKES said. "Don't let his name be forgotten."
As the mourners spilled out in the parking lot after the ceremony, many young people expressed anger and disgust at the shooting.
"Our young man are dying and dying and this ain't right" said 14-year-old Jessica PAZMINO, who said she never met Jordan, but decided to come to the funeral to show support. "Hopefully, this will teach people a lesson."
"People are realizing that this is disgusting," said Martha BOTENG, 19. "I see people coming together more."
Beside her, the car carrying Jordan's casket set slowly in motion toward Beechwood Cemetery, followed by two lowriders - cars with modified hydraulics and suspension so as to allow the driver to bounce the vehicle up and down to the rhythm of hip-hop music.
In their wake, traffic on Jane Street backed up several blocks and the storm clouds gathering above shed a few drops.

First to show and last to go, he was king of the course at Angus Glen
head groundskeeper at the site of the 2007 Canadian Open believed the maintenance of a golf course was about three things: drainage, drainage and drainage -- that and hard work
By Lorne RUBENSTEIN, Page S8
Ernie AMSLER loved the outdoors and could take apart and repair any machine, anywhere. He couldn't have found a more suitable job than looking after golf courses, where it's crucial to understand grass and machinery. He spent his days, and many of his nights, tending to both with abiding care.
Where Mr. AMSLER grew grass, golf courses and golfers always benefited. The Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham, Ontario, which hosted the Canadian Open on its North course last month, was no exception. As director of agronomy, he was responsible for the care and maintenance of the North and the South course, which was the site of the 2002 Canadian Open.
In 1991, he was right there for the formidable task of turning a former horse farm into Angus Glen. Every year, golfers play 90,000 rounds at the club's two courses, which became popular during Mr. AMSLER's tenure for daily-fee play and corporate tournaments. He and his staff kept the courses up and running and in immaculate condition even while golfers were playing, which he managed by staggering the maintenance work so that scarcely a stroke was disturbed. Mr. AMSLER was on the property most days by 4 a.m., three hours before he expected his staff to arrive. He was the first to show up and usually the last to leave.
Mr. AMSLER loved nothing better than to get up on a bulldozer or some other piece of machinery to do the hard work of construction and grunt work that a good course demands. Course maintenance is all about three things: drainage, drainage and drainage. Whenever it rained, Mr. AMSLER had to restrain himself from immediately getting on a machine and digging a ditch. When the South course needed a couple of new teeing areas before the 2002 Canadian Open, he built them himself. Just before this year's Canadian Open, he realized that a large hill on the North course's 18th hole made a cart path there dangerous. He fired up the bulldozer, scraped off the hill and laid down asphalt. Presto, he had made a hazardous area safe. Over the years, his willingness and ability to do the hard work saved the club hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Ernie AMSLER grew up in Schoenenwerd, a small town halfway between Zurich and Basel in northwestern Switzerland. One of his first jobs as a youngster was helping to deliver groceries by truck. He had been fascinated by cars since an early age, and soon became an expert at repairing them. He was particularly taken by Volkswagens. His interest in cars broadened after he came to Canada in 1966, and eventually he was buying and restoring such automobiles as Mini Coopers and Mercedes.
Mr. AMSLER first lived in the Toronto area with his sister Erika, who had preceded him to Canada. He'd enjoyed skiing in Switzerland and soon took to Canada's vast spaces and the idea of making an impression on the landscape. His first job was in landscaping, where he learned to wield the heavy machinery that became the instruments of his craftsmanship. He subsequently worked at various golf clubs in southern and south-central Ontario, including Windmills Golf Club, Port Carling Golf Club, the Mandarin Golf and Country Club in Markham, and, finally, Angus Glen.
"He could do anything with machinery," said Gordon STOLLERY, the owner of Angus Glen. "It didn't matter if it was a bulldozer, a back hoe or an aerator -- he knew how to work it. Ernie was also a true gentleman, by which I mean a gentle man."
Notwithstanding his courtly manner, Mr. AMSLER was as demanding of his staff as he was of himself. Angus Glen employees knew he monitored them to make sure they carried out his orders. At the same time, he was willing to admit when he made a mistake. A stickler for keeping the equipment in top shape, he took particular care that his staff cleaned the machinery at the end of each working day. It was important, for example, to make sure that gaskets were dry; otherwise, a fire might start.
So it was that one day Mr. AMSLER, in his take-charge way, used one of the bigger machines to cut the high fescue bordering the fairways. At the end of the day, he parked the machine in a back barn and, somehow, a fire broke out. Mr. AMSLER had neglected to do the proper cleaning. He told his staff, "You see, this is what can happen when we don't do the proper cleaning."
Another time, Mr. AMSLER was on a machine called a Bobcat when it hit a gas line. Everybody in the vicinity withdrew, fearing for their safety. He calmly fixed the line, and was soon asking where everyone had gone.
As much as Mr. AMSLER expected to be in charge of everything on the course, it wasn't always possible to exert the same kind of control off the course. In December of 1999, his son Daniel, who was born with cerebral palsy that affected one side of his body, was in a serious car accident. He was driving on Highway 403 when a ladder fell from a transport truck ahead of him. He swerved to avoid the truck and his car flipped twice. Daniel's right leg was mangled, and he spent the next 2½ weeks in a Mississauga hospital. Mr. AMSLER visited his son every day.
Meanwhile, he continued to put in long days and evenings at Angus Glen. With Chip, his border collie, on the seat beside him, Mr. AMSLER made his rounds driving a golf cart as if at a speedway.
Five weeks before this year's Canadian Open, Mr. AMSLER became ill and was admitted to hospital where he was visited, among others, by Kevin THISTLE, president of Angus Glen. After undergoing some tests, Mr. AMSLER was discharged, but he wasn't expected back at work. Inevitably, he showed up at the club. Mr. THISTLE asked him what he was doing there, and got the expected shrug, as if Mr. AMSLER were saying, "This is where I belong." It was clear, however, that he was ill and Mr. THISTLE later insisted that he go home. "I almost had to issue a restraining order."
Even so, Mr. AMSLER did manage to prepare some fields for a temporary pavilion needed for the Canadian Open, and rode a bulldozer for three days in 38-degree heat.
Before long, he was readmitted to hospital, unhappy to be away as the Canadian Open drew near. Nor did he like being away from a new facility he was building for Mr. STOLLERY in nearby Goodwood. Yet, in a way, he never did leave his work. From his hospital bed, he placed orders for sand for the new golf course.
"Ernie loved being outside," Mr. THISTLE said. "That's where he most wanted to be. You'd see him at night, driving around the property, and in the morning, he'd meet the same guys for coffee before he'd come to the club. I lived right beside his office when I first came to Angus Glen. He'd come in at four in the morning and honk his horn to wake me up."
The 2007 Open went on without Mr. AMSLER, although much of the credit for its success went to him. At the end of every tournament, the Professional Golfers' Association Tour issues a report on the host course. In advance of the tournament, Professional Golfers' Association Tour agronomist Jon Scott evaluated the work done at Angus Glen's North course to prepare for the Canadian Open and gave credit to "one of the greatest grass growers I've met in the business, head superintendent Ernie AMSLER."
Ernst AMSLER was born December 4, 1940, in Schoenenwerd, Switzerland. He died of complications from a liver-related condition at Southlake Hospital in Newmarket, Ontario, on July 24, 2007. He was 66. He is survived by his wife, Pia, and by his sons Daniel and Roland from an earlier marriage to Therese LEDREW, with whom he remained a close friend. He also leaves his sisters Erika and Erna, and his brother Kurt.

Pol MARTIN, 78: Epicure
By M.J. STONE, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S12
When a friend telephoned Pol MARTIN in the middle of her dinner party to lament the failed meal she was preparing, he told his panic-stricken friend to leave the back door open. He hurried over to her house, swept in unnoticed and deftly rescued the feast she had been attempting to orchestrate. The dinner party was a hit and none of the guests had the slightest clue that the meal had been created by one of North America's most celebrated chefs.
Although Mr. MARTIN could not make house calls to every cook in a crisis, he was welcomed into kitchens across North America, via his culinary television shows and the more than 30 cookbooks he authored. His sage advice about meal preparation centred on the basics. With proper guidance, good cooking is very simple, he said. "The more fun you have in the kitchen, the more you will want to try."
Born Pol HALNA DU FRETAY in Brittany, he was the son of an aristocratic French military officer. He grew up in a castle which he once almost set ablaze through an early attempt at cooking. He studied to become a chef at the École hôtelière de Paris and emigrated to Canada in 1954. He crossed the country working in the kitchens of the Canadian Pacific Hotel chain, before he was hired as a saucier at the Four Seasons Hotel in Manhattan. In 1967, he moved to Montreal where he managed the once chic and now-defunct restaurant, Mother Martin's. It was during his tenure there that he came to be known as Pol MARTIN. He said that his new name suited his adopted country, noting that Halna du Fretay was too high-brow for Canadian tastes.
In 1970, he began focusing on culinary education. He opened his Montreal cooking school, L'Ecole Culinaire Pol Martin, and began making appearances on French television in Quebec. In 1973, he published his first book The Art of Cooking and also hosted The Art of Cooking, a nationally broadcast CTV television program. Lighthearted, and blessed with an infectious sense of humour, his personality was a perfect fit for the small screen. In 1981, three years after the show went off the air, Mr. MARTIN closed his cooking school and moved to Port Credit, Ontario There, he devoted himself to writing such books as Love at First Bite and Smart and Simple Cooking while simultaneously managing two French-language culinary magazines, Télé-cuisine and Santé menu.
Mr. MARTIN remained a much sought-after guest on television and radio talk shows across North America. He was a huge hit on Live with Regis and Kathie Lee and is remembered today by the producer, Victoria Lang, as one of funniest chefs to appear on the show. She also liked his recipes. "Anybody can look at Easy Cooking and complete a recipe successfully. I have a lot of cookbooks, but I especially like this one."
What made his cookbooks so successful was a culinary philosophy that centred around the idea that should be mere starting points. They were not meant to be followed religiously. Mr. MARTIN described his recipes as dependable, simple dishes that allow cooks to improvise, so that it can be made by everyone, not just gourmets. "I have vulgarized French food," he once said during an interview.
His daughter, Melissa HALNA DU FRETAY, said that, as a child, the kitchen had been the centre of family life. "My brother and I served the multi-course dinners that my father and mother would host at our family home in Pointe Claire. We learned early about table etiquette and hospitality. Those dinners were always joyous events in an era when a five-hour dinner was normal. Or at least it was at our house."
Pol MARTIN was born in Nantes, France, on August 3, 1929. He died of cancer at home in Carlisle, Ontario, on September 16, 2007. He was 78. He is survived by his second wife, Suzanne, and by three children from a previous marriage, Melissa, Brett and Abigail.
