KARI, Mary Ethel
In loving memory of a dear mother and grandmother, Mary Ethel, who passed away one year ago today, January 6, 2006. In tears we watched you sinking, We watched you fade away, Our hearts were almost broken, You fought so hard to stay. But when we saw you sleeping, So peacefully from pain, We could not wish you back, To suffer that again. May the winds of love blow softly, And whisper so you'll hear, That we'll always love and miss you, And wish you still were here. Sadly missed and always remembered by; Doug and Chrystal, Barb and George, Bev and Mike, Don and Gillian, Donna and Ken as well as grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Full life's worth of big-hearted giving
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary writer, Page R2
People usually have only nice things to say about the departed some of which might even be true -- but with Kelly SILVERSTEIN people always had only nice things to say about him.
He really was just the greatest guy. Always there for kids -- any kid, not simply his own two boys. He was the fundraiser you could count on. And a coach for eight teams spread through four different sports.
He was the brother who rescued his fraternity when it teetered on bankruptcy. The volunteer who always raised the most money every year at Big Brothers and Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake. The parent who donated the Raptors tickets that pushed the bidding over the top at the school auction. The Dad who slipped the school principal a cheque for sports camp for an underprivileged student he thought particularly talented.
So when SILVERSTEIN died November 20 at age 42 just four days after he was diagnosed with leukemia, there was a shocked silence throughout his Hillcrest community.
And people wept when they heard.
There was standing room only at Holy Blossom Temple -- more than 1,200 people attended. The line snaked around the corner, and the service was 25 minutes late starting.
"You could feel it," said Rabbi John MOSCOWITZ. " There was a sense the very best one of us had just died."
SILVERSTEIN's Friends and family -- wife Jill, sons Oliver and Jonah -- were there, as were his fraternity brothers, his work colleagues, the teachers from the schools where he coached, kids from the teams he coached, but also the guy who worked in the underground parking lot in the building that housed his office.
He was that kind of guy.
"He was a stand-up kind of guy," said Terry KARIS, his barber at the Forest Hill Barber Shop. The two talked about more than the weather when SILVERSTEIN came in for his camouflage cut -- short on sides, long on top -- to hide the hair thinning on top.
In the fall of 2005, SILVERSTEIN invited KARIS to a hockey old-timers function.
"My son Adam was on the ice with Guy Lafleur. How good is that?" said KARIS.
It got better, though. KARIS had forgotten his camera and just as he and his son were about to leave, SILVERSTEIN hauled them over to Lafleur and took their picture together.
"He found a camera somewhere, somehow, because he knew I was a Montreal fan. And he wasn't even one. He put it in a frame and gave it to me. I treasure that picture," said KARIS.
"He was goodness personified," said Michael KALLES, a fraternity brother. "He gave his all to everything. He wasn't a guy who asked you to lift a heavy piano and he carried the piano bench. He'd be carrying 15 pianos." When they were students at the University of Western Ontario together, it was SILVERSTEIN who started Pi Lambda Phi fraternity.
First they met in a bedroom, then SILVERSTEIN got the idea they should rent a house; then he decided they should buy one -- which they did, choice real estate at the corner of Cheapside and Richmond Sts. -- because he raised a ton of money.
He started a chapter at the University of Windsor as well.
"Kelly did all the heavy lifting," KALLES said. He mobilized them to raise the $10,000 they needed to retain their charter when their chapter got in financial trouble. "He would say that we have to ensure that the frat would be around when our kids wanted to join."
He was always doing it for kids.
"He really was as fine a person as you would ever meet," said John HUNTER, principal of Hillcrest public school, where the SILVERSTEIN sons had attended and their father coached.
He started the basketball team there -- for five years he called practices for 7: 30 a.m. before he went to work. There was an offer on the table for him to come back and coach again this winter.
"He was so kind to the kids. He had a lot of trouble cutting them (from the team)," Hunter said.
For four years he coached two hockey teams in the North Toronto house league. For even longer he also coached two soccer teams, as well as baseball and basketball teams. Basketball was his favourite sport, possibly because he was six-foot-four.
He'd take his teams out for chicken wings; he'd sweep his sons' Friends up along on their family outings.
"Lunch became dinner and then supper. It was always one more invitation. That was the way it was with the whole family. They were a team," said Elaine LESNIAK, a single mom whose son, Ari, 14, had been Oliver's best friend until they went to different schools.
That never stopped SILVERSTEIN. "At the bus when the kids were going off to camp, Kelly always made sure to give Ari a big hug," she said.
"Every time you are with him, you want to be with him more. You are just drawn to him," said Ari.
Maybe he was just a big kid in some ways. He'd take the family and their Friends to a Baskin-Robbins ice cream place, seat them at the window and pay the kids $1 for every person they could get to wave to them. "It was our job to get people to wave, in a freezing cold night," Jill recalled.
SILVERSTEIN attacked life, reading three newspapers daily, tearing out articles to send off to Friends. "We all got them with the note: FYI, K.S.," said Bonnie BLONDER, Jill's best friend since childhood.
As he was often first in the office of Davis + Henderson cheque makers, he'd put on the coffee.
"Kelly just wanted to make sure everyone was happy," said Jill with a smile.
He was the youngest of five children of Sonny and Marlene SILVERSTEIN, of Silverstein's Bakery. "He was always being picked up and cuddled," said his only sister Robin SILVERSTEIN- EISEN.
The family lived in a cul-de-sac near Lawrence and Marlee in a house with a basketball hoop out front that was the centre of activity for all the neighbourhood kids. SILVERSTEIN often took his own family back there.
"He called it our 'drive-bys,'" said Jill. "He'd always tell the kids who lived in the houses. He wanted us to know about the good things."
In 1998, SILVERSTEIN had returned to Toronto after working in Atlanta when his mother was diagnosed with cancer. He postponed finding work to be with her. It was as if he pushed himself to get in a full life's worth of giving.
"This was just his thing -- to do for others," said family friend Barbara SILVERSTEIN (no relation.)
"He was so decent. I have never met anyone like him."
"I can't tell you how many people phoned us to volunteer because they heard about us from Kelly," said Heather SPROULE, executive director of Big Brothers and Sisters.
The day after SILVERSTEIN died, her office received a donation from him via the United Way. "I had no idea that beyond all that he was doing for us, that in his usual quiet fashion he made an annual donation through the United Way."
Next month there will be an award in SILVERSTEIN's name at the 2007 Bowl for Kids Sake.
"We thought about it for less than a second," SPROULE said. "It will be a fundraising award, which at the least is very fitting."
