In loving memory of my daughter, Heidi Louanne Sarah ROY, January 12, 2006.
I thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday,
And days before that, too.
I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name.
All I have are memories
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake,
With which I'll never part.
God has you in His keeping,
I have you in my heart.
Lovingly remembered every day by her Mom, May (Tut) Roy and Grandma
(Mama) Annie.

ROY
In loving memory of Auntie Heidi.
Just like a beautiful long stemmed rose,
Her precious memory grows and grows.
Touching the hearts of all of those she loves,
And like the fragrance of that same rose,
Her love so sweet still flows and flows,
Filling our lives with a warmth,
that shows she's there,
So, like a forever-blooming rose,
The beauty she shared eternally glows,
For deep in our hearts,
Each of us knows....She lives !
Always remembered by her nieces and nephews Eugenia, Ferris, Hunter, Cameron, Ephie, Mark Jr., Joel, Ethyn, Jaci, Lexie.

In loving memory of our sister Heidi.
"Heaven's Latest Angel"
"Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of Angels"
Such a young woman living grown up dreams
Shooting for the sky
With a smile and eyes that beam
Her living an example
Her death was a surprise
Heaven's latest angel
Finally gets to fly.
She touched so many lives
She made us see the light
Dreams are only dreams
Unless we live them day and night
Her life here may have ended
But her soul will never die
Heaven's latest angel
Finally gets to fly.
Nothing left to ground her
Spirit ... finally free
The world hers to discover
"From sea to shining sea"
Yearning for the blue skies
As she waves one last good-bye
Heaven's latest angel
Finally gets to fly.
Lovingly remembered by her brothers Mark and Eugene and sisters Natalie, Michelle and Anna.

COLEMAN, Doctor William Hugh (April 13, 1918-September 22, 2007)
Bill COLEMAN passed away peacefully on September 22, 2007 in Orillia, Ontario. He was the beloved husband of the late Nell (née ROY;) cherished father of Diane (Bryan MERCER) in Calgary, Dale (Colin WHEELER) in Whitby, and Hugh (Ennis) in Orillia devoted grandfather of Robin, Tara, Jocelyn, Jeff and Mark, and great-grandfather of Fiona; much-loved brother of Catherine PERCIVAL, Helen (predeceased) and Herbert (predeceased); and fond uncle to two nieces and four nephews. Born in Palmerston, Ontario to Dr. Herbert and Mary Moore COLEMAN, Bill moved with the family to Toronto as a young boy. He completed his DDS degree at the University of Toronto in 1943, earning his way by working on Great Lakes boats and picking tobacco. He then served two years as a Captain in the Royal Canadian Air Force dental corps, posted to Aylmer, Ontario. He married his high school sweetheart, Nell ROY, an occupational therapist, in 1942 in Hamilton. After leaving the Air Force, he set up his dental practice in Toronto, and practiced until 1983, when his health mandated retirement. He was a dedicated member of the Lions Clubs in Leaside, Markham and Bracebridge, coordinating their fall pumpkin sales and many other aspects of fundraising and social events. After 60 years of participation, he was presented with a Lions Lifetime Award, of which he was justly proud. 'Papa' was a fun guy. His big smile and infectious sense of humour will be fondly remembered by all of his family, as well as by his Friends from Toronto, Markham, Bracebridge and Orillia; by his dental patients who loved their 'Dr. Bill'; and by those with whom he sang in choirs and in Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, played golf, curled, played bridge, camped and cottaged, boated and fished, sipped manhattans, and just enjoyed life. He loved the outdoors, the cottage and the lake - a passion shared by his children - and always had a dog to follow him around. He loved a good garage sale, grilled a great steak, could fix anything, and produced both good furniture and bad wine from his workshop. The family extends their sincere appreciation to the staff of the Birchmere Retirement Residence and of the Dialysis Unit of the Orillia Hospital for their kind care. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice. No service by request; a private cremation has taken place. Messages of condolence are welcomed at www.mundellfuneralhome.ca

He Was A Lacrosse Star, Coach And Manager
By Canadian Press, Page S7
St. Catharines, Ontario -- Ron ROY, who played or coached lacrosse for most of his life, died of leukemia yesterday. He was 71.
In senior, major and pro leagues from 1955 through 1974, he scored 379 goals and assisted on 226 in 235 regular-season games. He had 133 goals and 65 assists in 82 playoff games. In 1960, he was a member of the Mann Cup-champion Port Credit Sailors and led the Ontario Lacrosse Association in scoring.
In the late 1970s, he helped revive senior field lacrosse in St. Catharines and served as president of the Pelham Minor Lacrosse Association. In 1998, he joined the Buffalo Bandits of the National Lacrosse League as a scout and technical analyst. Two years later, he was named an assistant coach. During summers in 1999 and 2000, he coached the St. Catharines senior team.
In 2002, he was appointed general manager and head coach of the National Lacrosse League's Columbus Landsharks in Ohio and built a promising young team that later moved to Arizona. "I never had as much fun in my life," he said of his Landsharks experience, which included 10-hour train rides to home games with players from Ontario.
By all accounts, he was dedicated to his players wherever he coached. "Winning is important, but it's not the most important thing for me," he said. "Building character is much more important and that's what makes a team in the long run."
When junior lacrosse returned to Niagara-on-the-Lake in 2003, he agreed to coach the Niagara Thunderhawks. It was his last coaching stint.
Mr. ROY, who was in the flooring business, is survived by his wife, Ethel, and by a daughter and son. He was a member of the Ontario Lacrosse Hall of Fame.

LE DAIN, Gerald Eric, C.C., Q.C., B.C.L., D. de l'Univ., D.C.L., LL.D.
Passed away peacefully on December 18, 2007 at the age of 83. Beloved husband of Cynthia LE DAIN (deceased,) and dearest father to Jacqueline (deceased), Catherine (deceased), Barbara (David MUIR), Caroline (Clifford BURGESS), Eric (Christie WILTSHIRE), and Jennifer (Philip SYMMONDS.) Cherished grandfather to Andrew, Katie, Alison, Ian, Matthew, Colin, Michael, Mark, Adam, David and Molly. We will miss you dearly, and will hear the echoes of your laughter at the family cottage, the source of so many happy memories. Gerald LE DAIN was born in Montreal in 1924, son of Eric LE DAIN and Antoinette WHITHARD. He attended McGill University briefly prior to volunteering, at the age of 18, to serve with the Canadian Army in World War 2 from 1943 to 1946, as a Gunner with the 7th Medium Regt., R.C.A., seeing action in Holland and Germany in 1945. In 1946, he attended Khaki University in England where in a fateful debate he met his wife of 48 years, Cynthia Emily ROY. After returning to Canada in 1946, he obtained a B.C.L. degree from McGill University, winning the Gold Medal. He pursued his studies in France, obtaining a Docteur de l'Université from the Université de Lyon. He was called to the Bar of Quebec in 1949; becoming a Q.C. in 1961. During the 1950's and 1960's, Gerald practised law in Montreal, with Walker Martineau, and as a partner in the firm of Riel, Le Dain, Bissonnette, Vermette and Ryan where he was counsel to the Attorney General of Quebec in constitutional cases, and in the legal department of the Canadian International Paper Co. For eight years during this period he was a professor of law at McGill University. In 1967, he became dean of Osgoode Hall Law School at York University. From 1969 to 1973, he chaired the Commission of Inquiry into the Non-Medical Use of Drugs. Two years later, he was appointed to the Federal Court of Appeal. He was elevated to the Supreme Court of Canada in 1984. He served on the Supreme Court for four years and retired in 1988. He was made a Companion of the Order of Canada in 1989. Gerald LE DAIN lived life with exuberance and passion, with integrity and a strong sense of responsibility, and with a profound commitment to Canada. The warmth of his personality, the power of his intellect, and his ability to bring clarity to complex issues enriched us all.
