Simple is better. We love you Dad!

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.' "

Baron CHATFIELD, 90
He Was Aide-De-Camp To The Governor General
By Tom HAWTHORN, Page S10
Victoria -- Baron CHATFIELD of Ditching, who served as aide-de-camp to a governor general during the Second World War, has died at his Oak Bay home. He was 90.
As a young lieutenant in the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve, he was at Pier 61 in Halifax in 1940 to greet the Earl of Athlone on his arrival to take up the post of Governor General. He served the earl throughout the war, attending him at such events as the 1943 New Year's levee at the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. The soldier also was feted in his own honour, as a former Ontario cabinet minister and wife hosted a tea at the Toronto Hunt Club in 1941.
Ernle David Lewis CHATFIELD was born on January 2, 1917, at Edinburgh, Scotland. He was educated at the Royal Naval College at Dartmouth and at Trinity College at Cambridge, England.
His father, Alfred Ernle Montacute CHATFIELD, served as captain of the H.M.S. Medina during a tour of India by George V in 1911-12. He was decorated for his actions at the Battle of Jutland in the Great War, and was serving as First Sea Lord of the Admiralty when raised to the peerage as Baron CHATFIELD in 1937. Two years later, he was briefly in the war cabinet as the minister for co-ordination of defence.
The first Lord CHATFIELD died in 1967, his son succeeding to the title.
The 2nd Lord CHATFIELD died on September 30. He leaves his wife of 38 years, the former Elizabeth BULMAN, and a sister, Katharine DUCKWORTH, an officer of the Order of the British Empire. He was predeceased by a sister who died in 1943.
