BYERS strummed a happy tune
By Randy RICHMOND, Sun Media, Thurs., December 20, 2007
The people of the street gathered for a Christmas party and Sean BYERS was there, of course.
Eating platefuls of food, making people laugh, he won the Christmas carol trivia contest at the party run by Streetlight.
Each player got more points for singing the answers and even more points for getting everyone to sing along.
"Sean got everyone singing," remembers Gil CLELLAND, the director of Streetlight ministry.
When CLELLAND went home that night, Tuesday, December 11, he thought of the joy at the gathering.
"I thought maybe this is that peace that we all hear about at Christmas," he said.
Then came Wednesday.
"And I thought, where is that peace today? I asked God. Where are you? What happened?"
What happened?
BYERS left the party and went to a Unity Project crash bed that night.
Sometime the next morning he left the shelter, then snuck back in. A worker found him in a locked bathroom.
Maybe BYERS, 28, took his own life. Maybe it was an accident. The needle never cares.
The death of the engaging young man has rattled the street to its supposedly hardened core. More than 100 people, from the homeless to the workers helping them, gathered at the Central Library this week to remember.
"Sean was a really awesome guy," said Trevor JOHNSON, a transition services manager at Youth Action Centre.
"He was generous, very well spoken, very well read, intelligent. He struggled at times and made mistakes."
It's hard to pinpoint where and when the struggle began, his mother, Myra GARNETT, told The Free Press. There were problems at home that hit her son hard, she admitted.
"He was a very, very thoughtful boy."
Although he was identified as a gifted pupil in Grade 1, BYERS struggled later in school and by 15 had dropped out and left home. He took the roads so many lost boys take, sometimes turning to drugs and petty crime that led to jail, sometimes trying to make it, getting a job and treatment for his growing addiction.
No matter which way he turned, he played guitar or sketched, and cared for others.
"No matter how much pain he was in, he would see someone else and reach right through his pain to theirs," GARNETT said.
JOHNSON joined the Youth Action Centre about 10 years ago and met BYERS, who was doing volunteer work. BYERS would make ends meet by busking at the market or on weekend nights outside the bars on Richmond Row.
The memorial service was held at the library because he loved books so much, JOHNSON said.
"Give him his coffee, his paper, a smoke and his guitar and he was a happy guy."
BYERS always put on a smiling face to the world. But when he was really down, he took his guitar to the park and played, JOHNSON said.
BYERS and a few other young men his age all became hooked on the needle and hung around together.
One of those men was Jay DUCKWORTH, a Saint Thomas resident, who died December 8. He, too, was remembered this week.
"Although they struggled with self-medicating, they had strong spirits," Jim WATKIN, executive director of the London Harm Reduction Coalition, said at the service.
"You would see it in their eyes. That is what we need to remember. It is not about shame or guilt. We need to get rid of that. We need to let our spirits flourish."
The world looks at the Seans and the Jays as addicts and nothing more, said Matti PAQUIN, once an addict and now a worker at the Unity Project shelter.
"I loved those two boys. They were good people who tended to do drugs."
But their deaths must serve as a warning, others said at the memorial service.
"I cared for these guys for a long time. I hoped a miracle would happen and these men would excel," said Lawrence BOOM of Street Connection, a drop-in centre. "We have to come to terms with this. We have to start looking at drug addiction as an illness, not a weakness."
Over the next few months, city council will wrestle with questions of where to spend this year's budget. The city's community services department wants politicians to spend more money helping the homeless and the addicted.
The people of the street think the government should do more to help as well. In the meantime, they will continue to help each other the best they can. They will gather.
"I think that is where the peace is today," CLELLAND said, his voice breaking with grief at the memorial service.
"The peace we seek at Christmas is that in these tough moments we don't leave each other alone. When we say, 'I need you in my life right now.' "

OLMSTED, Marjorie Kingsland (née SALTER)
(February 25, 1917-June 23, 2007)
Marjorie OLMSTED lived 90 years of what she would have termed an 'ordinary life', but to those of us who knew and loved her, she was extraordinary. She brought joy to others in the simplest way possible - yet few achieve it - she made us laugh. Constantly! Her keen eye combined with quick wit left any situation open to her humorous quips. Marj will always be remembered as kind, gentle, artistic and creative, and most of all, funny. She loved the sound of laughter and even as Alzheimers slowly diminished her memory in later years, with a twinkle in her eye she managed to bring delight to others daily. This beautiful Scottish/Irish lassie with the gorgeous auburn hair and freckles was born in Quebec City on February 25th, 1917 to parents Lillian and Norman SALTER who later moved to Ottawa. At 14, Marj met her childhood sweetheart, Earl OLMSTED, whom she married at 23 and they remained together for 76 years. Not an easy feat when you consider they endured the 2nd World War being apart. (Lt. Col. OLMSTED [Ret.] was overseas for 5 years and is one of the few living survivors of the Normandy Beach landing.) For 2 of the war years Marj attended Kemptville Agricultural College, one of the highlights of her life. This was followed by a life being an 'army wife' with moves from Ottawa to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Fort Churchill, Manitoba, and Madison, Wisconsin accompanied by their four children - Eric, Valerie, Eleanor, and Bruce. She was able to put her home economic studies to good use in her chosen career as a devoted and outstanding Mom. Marjorie lived for many years on Broadview Avenue, Ottawa and in Amberwood Village, Stittsville surrounded by wonderful neighbors. On one of their postings 45 years ago, Marjorie discovered she had breast cancer. Her humour helped her through those dark times and upon waking from major surgery asked her doctor 'Does this mean I can no longer wear double breasted suits?' He encouraged her to find a new hobby so she signed up for art lessons as a form of therapy and found a hidden artistic gift that blossomed into years of painting (often with her beloved dog Lara at her feet). Using mixed media, she would amaze relatives and Friends with her original artwork and poems to suit special occasions. Always a journalist and poet, at the age of 80 Marj wrote an article entitled 'Diary of Breast Cancer.' Not only was it published in the Ottawa Citizen, but it has been widely distributed to thousands of women across Canada to offer them hope and inspiration. Her illness never returned and she lived cancer-free 45 more years! Marjorie's #1 passion was her family and grandchildren - Jana and Pat CLENDON of Calgary, Lani EL- GUEBALY of Vancouver, and Tally, Lindsay, and Geoffrey OSBORNE of Toronto - and many happy reunions took place at Marj and Earl's beloved Red Pine Camp on Golden Lake, Ontario where lifelong Friendships were formed and strengthened each summer for over 65 years. Beauty was an ongoing theme in her poems; Sugarbush Pointe and Red Pine Camp captured for Marjorie the best that camaraderie and nature had to offer. Perfect and personal pieces of Canada. Already sadly missed by her husband, children, and grandchildren, some very special people who will mourn her loss are relatives Noreen LANGDON, Rita SALTER, Ted and Muriel LANGDON, Alan and Waveney SALTER, Doctor Nady EL- GUEBALY, Doctor Ray OSBORNE, Judy KETCHESON, Marilyn EL- GUEBALY, Bill SALTER Jr., Mary and King CHAPMAN, Andrea and Albert PETERS, Doug and Jean SALTER, Red Piners and lifelong Friends in the Ottawa Valley. She was recently predeceased in August 2006 by her first-born son Eric, also by her parents, her brothers Bill and Jack, her niece's son Scotty, many aunts and uncles, fellow grandparents Ahmed and Andree EL- GUEBALY, and nephew Geoffrey LANGDON. In the summer of 2002 Marjorie said, 'soon I will be flying with wings.' We are forever grateful that we had a few more years to enjoy her company before she flew away. Marjorie loved words and here are a few of her own which foreshadowed this occasion.
End of Summer
Touch the rustic railings one more time And gaze at the quiet lake. The leaves are brittle now And rattle in the breeze. Feel the sun, half warm, half chill, And say goodbye to summer. A quiver is in the poplars; A shiver is in the pines, On the lake the waves wear A lacey fringe of winter white And one bird flies Into a fading sky.
Special thanks to Evelyn ALBAN, who is like a member of the family, and to the loving staff at the Claremont Retirement Residence in Toronto, especially Barbara. You are truly an amazingly loyal and caring group of people. A Graveside Internment Service will be held at Capital Memorial Gardens Cemetery, 3700 Price of Wales Drive, Nepean on Thursday, June 28, 2007 at 3: 15 p.m. For further information please call Tubman Funeral Homes at 613-722-6559. In lieu of flowers, donations in Marjorie's name to the Ottawa Mission, 35 Waller Street, Ottawa, K1N 7G4, would be sincerely appreciated.

Mavis will be sadly missed by her brothers and sisters-in-law Nancy and Kenneth MALLINSON (Langley, British Columbia), Pat BURNS and John MALLINSON (Lachine, Quebec), Audrey KNOWLES (Pointe Claire, Quebec), Mary BRANDON (Fenelon Falls, Ontario,) and Isobel and Doug CLERK (Fenelon Falls, Ontario,) her nieces, nephews and cousins. Mavis is predeceased by her brothers Robert and Harold MALLINSON. She has relatives and Friends right across Canada, from British Columbia to the Atlantic Provinces and will be fondly remembered by them all. Mom was born in Montreal on July 9th, 1920, the daughter of Donalda Grace (WOOD) and George James MALLINSON. She graduated from West Hill High School in 1938. After completing a secretarial course, she worked at Ciba Company and Allied War Supplies. As the daughter of an National Hockey League referee, she had a great love of sports throughout her life. She was a member of the Notre-Dame de Grace Tennis Club and spent many winter weekends in the Laurentians skiing. After her marriage to Fred in 1943, the couple enjoyed teaching their children how to have fun. Ice skating, swimming, bike riding, fishing and going on picnics were family pastimes. For many years, Mavis and Fred were enthusiastic members of the Montreal West Curling Club. Mom was also an active member of Westmount Baptist Church and taught Bible study at the church's summer retreat in the Eastern Townships, Cedar Lodge. In 1979, Mom moved to Brampton to be closer to her grandchildren. She took up lawn bowling and joined the local Brampton club. In early 1989, Mom was introduced to John McINTOSH. The happy couple married and moved to Belleville where they enjoyed visits with John's family. Mom was a member of the Belleville Newcomers Club and Ladies Euchre Group. As well as ensuring her children were well educated, Mom passed on to them a great love of music. She was herself part of many musical organizations. She sang in the Westmount Baptist Choir and the Brampton Choral Society, and was a member of the Sandalwood Chime Choir. She loved listening to performances of the Metropolitan Opera on the radio and tolerated her son's rock band practices in the basement of the Belmore Avenue home. Mom was a helpful daughter, a caring sister, a good wife and a wonderful mother. She was a proud and loving grandmother. Most important of all, you could not ask for a better friend. We will all miss her infectious laugh. Many thanks to the staff at Sandalwood who looked after Mom with kindness, patience, and understanding. Also, thank-you to the nursing staff in Ward 4A at the Peel Memorial Hospital. A private cremation has taken place.
