United in their grief
Strength in numbers: More than 1,000 attend the funeral of slain couple Hélène and Bill REGIER.
By John MINER, Sun Media, Tues., July 31, 2007
More than 1,000 people attend the funeral and burial services yesterday of Bill and Hélène REGIER at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. The couple was found slain in their Mount Carmel home last Monday. Police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for 22-year-old Jesse Norman IMESON of Windsor, in connection with the deaths. (Derek RUTTAN, Sun Media)
Mount Carmel -- With prayers, hymns and tears, Hélène and Bill REGIER were laid to rest yesterday within sight of their Huron County farmstead, where they were found slain a week ago.
More than 1,000 mourners gathered for the funeral, many arriving 90 minutes early.
The crowd filled Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church and its yard, some standing for more than two hours when the seats filled up.
Two Ontario Provincial Police officers in dress uniform flanked the church entrance, saluting as the two caskets were carried by grand_sons and nephews into the service that was also attended by Bishop Ronald FABBRO of the London Catholic diocese.
The REGIERs had been active church members in Mount Carmel, north of London.
Bill REGIER was an active member of the Knights of Columbus and a huge advocate of restoration of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church.
Hélène served with the Catholic Women's League for more than 50 years and was a past London diocesan president.
Despite the brutal killing of their loved ones, the REGIER family spoke of forgiveness and hope yesterday, remembering the deep faith, love of life and generosity of the couple, in their early 70s.
"They have taught all of us throughout the years about strength, faith, family values and most importantly forgiveness. That is what we must remember now," said granddaughter Nikki DENOMY in a tribute as the service began.
DENOMY said her grandparents faced their own tragedy when a fire 32 years ago destroyed the family home and killed a grandmother.
"Grandma and grandpa (Bill and Hélène REGIER,) with six children, surrounded themselves with God, kept on praying and continued farming. Soon enough they had rebuilt their family home and were a closer family than ever before," said DENOMY.
"Our family will once again bind together, carrying on all the values that the most beautiful couple in the world taught us."
Together as a family we will watch the wheat grow, the corn harvest, listen to the birds sing, watch the sun rise and sun set, because difficult times don't last forever," she said.
Grandson Nathan REGIER thanked the community for its support in tragic times.
While it might be hard to find a silver lining in the dark cloud of the horrible event, REGIER said there was one.
"Grandpa and grandma were practically inseparable since the day they met. You would never think of one without the other close in mind. If one were to have passed before the other, the other one would not have been the same," he said.
Both grandchildren said it was difficult to be in a sour mood around their grandparents.
REGIER described stopping in at his grandparents on the way home from work, catching up on the farm news from his grandfather while his grandmother would be in constant motion, making sure he had two days' worth of food in his stomach.
"When she finally realized she had cooked enough for six people, I wasn't allowed to go home without three days worth of leftovers," he said.
DENOMY said that Helene's grandchildren all knew grandma had a drawer filled with little gifts.
"If you ever mentioned you liked something in the house, you pretty much knew you were taking it home. It never failed: She would say, 'you like it, you want it, you have it.' "
She said the sun just seemed to shine a little brighter around her grandparents.
"Let's not be sad or angry that they are gone, but just thankful that we are blessed to have them here in the first place," she said.
Rev. Ray LAWHEAD, the parish priest at Mount Carmel, said the REGIERs' death had rocked the community, family and Friends.
"It was not nice news," he said.
LAWHEAD referred to the killing as a "horrendous act" and "evil."
"What do you do, how do we respond? As Jesus would say, and I am sure Bill and Hélène would say, there is only one response to evil like this and that is love."
Bill and Hélène were buried in the cemetery next to the church.
Jesse Norman IMESON, 22, wanted in the slayings of the REGIERs and a Windsor bartender days earlier, remains on the lam, despite intensive police efforts to find him.

Crash kills London mother, daughter
Their car hit a median on Highway 401 and was struck by a transport truck.
By Randy RICHMOND, Sun Media, Wed., September 12, 2007
Grim scene: The driver of this transport truck died yesterday morning when he rear-ended a tractor trailer on Highway 401 near Colonel Talbot Road that had slowed for a police roadblock to divert traffic around an earlier fatal accident. (Derek RUTTAN Sun Media)
A London mother and daughter dedicated to helping victims of self abuse were killed yesterday in a Highway 401 crash that led to the death of a third driver hours later.
B.J. THOM, 52, also known as Elizabeth, and her daughter, Ashley GARROD, 22, were killed after their car hit the median in the east lanes of Highway 401 between Colonel Talbot Road and Wellington Road, spun out of control and was hit by a transport truck during heavy rain about 4 a.m., police said.
The driver of the tractor-trailer faces several charges, including leaving the scene of an accident causing death.
A second crash occurred just before 11 a.m. at the roadblock where police were diverting traffic from Highway 401 to Colonel Talbot Road.
A transport truck slowed down at the roadblock and a second truck slammed into it, killing the driver of the second truck.
Killed in the second crash was Timothy McDERMOTT, 50, of South Woodslee, Essex County.
The three deaths bring to nine the total killed on area roads the last 11 days and the carnage is exasperating police, said Const. Doug GRAHAM of Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police.
"Every accident on Highway 401 and 402 in the past few days was preventable. We are very concerned about all these deaths," he said.
Some drivers aren't getting the message to slow down in bad weather or at night, to leave room between vehicles and to wear seatbelts, GRAHAM said.
"That is is what is so disturbing."
Friends of THOM and GARROD expressed horror yesterday at the news the pair had died.
THOM and GARROD ran Self Abuse Finally Ends in Canada, a London-based group that helps people who hurt themselves.
THOM had successfully fought self abuse, said Trix VAN EGMOND, mental health public educator with the Canadian Mental Health Association of London- Middlesex.
"She gave help back and she did it in a personalized way. She was very funny and irreverent, I think, from going to hell and back herself."
GARROD was driving the car when the crash occurred, Ontario Provincial Police said.
Police learned of the accident from a motorist who noticed headlights from a vehicle in the south ditch along the east lanes.
Officers arrived to find the two women dead and the car "extensively damaged," GRAHAM said.
They also found a headlight at the scene.
"From the impact and from the evidence left at the scene we were able to determine it was a tractor-trailer we were looking for," GRAHAM said.
It appears the car hit the median and spun enough that the truck hit the passenger side, GRAHAM said.
Police searched area truck stops for a damaged tractor- trailer missing a headlight. They found a truck parked at the back of the Flying J truck stop south off Highway 401 near Highbury Avenue about two hours later, GRAHAM said.
The driver was inside the truck, he added, and at first refused to leave the cab, .
"He made no effort to contact police or return to the scene," GRAHAM said.
Stefan FOGIEL, 61, of Acton, has been charged with two counts of failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing death, resisting arrest, failing to maintain log books and failing to have a pre-trip inspection, Ontario Provincial Police said.
FOGIEL made a brief court appearance before Justice of the Peace Patricia HODGINS yesterday.
White-haired with glasses and wearing a white T-shirt with a Bass Beer logo, FOGIEL told HODGINS he wanted a Polish interpreter for his court appearances.
Assistant Crown attorney Brian WHITE/WHYTE ordered FOGIEL be kept in custody. He is to make a video court appearance today.
The second crash yesterday occurred only minutes after police had removed the London women's crumpled blue car from the scene of the first incident.
"The lead transport truck was slowing down. The one behind slammed into it. It was quite an impact," GRAHAM said.
The driver of the first transport, Harpreet PANNU, 29, of Brampton, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
There was no reason for the collision, GRAHAM said.

Dear friend of Ivan and Sandra Anderson, Jim and Heather Murdock, Barry and Kathy Kiggins, Dianne Aves, Betty Townshend, Trudie Robbins, Brad and Ellen Luelo, Mandy and Jamie Badrian, Peter and Elizabeth Moffat, Pat and John Weber, Conestogo, Alan and Nicole Mockler, Montreal, Doctor William Akeroyd and family Vancouver Dr's John and Christine Martin, Inverness, Scotland as well as countless others. She will be deeply missed by her close Friends at Queensmount Senior Public School, Kitchener and the many new Friends she had made as she setup a second home with Jim in Saint John, New Brunswick. The family would also like to thank the Waterloo Community Care Access Centre team, Doctor Bob HUNTER, Kitchener and the doctors of the Hamilton Juravinski Cancer Centre for their caring and support of Barb through her long journey. Barb was predeceased by her first husband, Bill McLEOD, and her parents, Luke and Hope TINCKNELL, of Paris, Ontario. Barb was first and foremost a proud and loving mother. She was also a wonderful, caring and generous wife, sibling, friend, and teacher. She was born in Paris, Ontario, where she spent the entirety of her childhood. She was an energetic child, who succeeded both at academics and athletics. She attended teacher's college at McMaster University and later returned to Guelph University to complete a degree in English and theatre arts. She taught at several elementary schools, took a leave to dedicate herself to parenting, and then returned to Queensmount Senior Public School in the late 1980s. Barb established herself as a remarkable teacher who inspired both her students and her colleagues. She taught English and math and directed several musical productions, while acting as a supportive mentor and friend to her fellow staff. In recent years, Barb was an avid fan of her daughter's careers, both scholastic and athletic. She adored her 'boys', Cody and Spooky, and the new addition of Oakley. She was a knowledgeable and dedicated sports fan. She travelled frequently with Jim, to Western and Eastern Canada, Boston, and Sanibel Island, Florida. Barb loved visiting with her granddaughter, Morgan, spending time at her cabin, gardening, bird watching, renovating and decorating her home, riding her bicycle, going to movies, and visiting her favourite people. As her health declined over the past year, Barb inspired us all with her ability to embrace every day of her life, and to find joy and humour during the most difficult of times. She fought an incredibly long and hard battle, but continued to focus only on the needs and lives of others. Her life was miraculous in many ways; she will be cherished forever by those who were blessed to share her life. Interment will be at Memory Gardens followed by a private service in celebration of her life. Donations in memory of Barbara (Barb) Ellen McLEOD can be made to the Hamilton Juravinski Cancer Centre, http://www.jccfoundation.on.ca/donations/online.shtml or may be placed by calling the Henry Walser Funeral Home 519 749-8467.
