DELANEY, Joseph C.
We wish to express our many thanks to so many people who helped us at the time of Dad's passing June 9, 2008. We were very touched by the outpouring of generosity from our neighbours, relatives and Friends through the preparation of food, sympathy cards, mass card offerings, charitable and floral tributes. Dad was blessed to be surrounded by many caring people during his time at home over the last few years. His 'support staff' included kindness and care from Janet BILKE, Margie CAMPBELL, and Rosemary BALFOUR. In particular, Nancy O'REILLY is fondly remembered for her special attention in helping to organize his appointments, and ensuring he was able to attend mass and enjoy special music events such as 'Tuesday Toonies'. She became his 5th daughter. Upon relocating to the Ritz Villa in Mitchell, he enjoyed continued care and attention from the staff. He loved when the staff acknowledged him with "Hi Joe" - so happy that everyone knew his name! A special visitor he looked forward to her visiting and saying the rosary was Pauline (Geottler) HARTFIEL who shared her time with him reminiscing about many of the Dublin families from years ago. During the few days that Dad was at Stratford General Hospital, he received calming and gentle care from the nursing staff; we know that his most memorable visit was from Fr. Paul NICHOLSON who bestowed upon him the Sacrament of the Sick. We were overwhelmed with the support of Friends and family who attended the funeral visitation on Thursday. Special thanks to the ladies of the Seaforth Legion for their preparing a hot meal for our family between the two visiting times. Dad's funeral was shared with Friends and family and was beautifully concelebrated by Fr. Chris GILLESPIE and Fr. MOONEY. Dad always enjoyed the sounds of the pipe organ at St. Patrick's Church and we appreciated the gift of music from Brian ECKERT, the organist, and the choir members of St. Patrick's and St. Vincent De Paul. The Catholic Women's League provided a tasty lunch following the funeral mass. Our thanks to Ruth and Ross from Whitney-Ribey Funeral Home for the kindness they shared with our family throughout the funeral preparations. Although Dad lived a long and healthy life, it is still difficult to 'say goodbye'. We are comforted by our trust in a life afterward, that Dad is now reunited with Mom (Mamie) after 6½ years. His life is now complete. Yvonne and Steve SEILER, Mitchell; Pat and Charlene DELANEY, Dublin; Maureen and Paul VAN DE WALLE, Saint Marys; Jim DELANEY, London; Jayne and Brad WALSH, Egmondville and Lucille and Neil PANZIERA, Lambeth.

ABBOTT, Saille Brock
On June 16, 2008, Saille passed away at home after a lengthy bout of cancer, a recurrence of her previous episode in 2006. Her extraordinary courage, grace, humour and wisdom throughout her ordeal was an inspiration to her family and her many Friends from Canada, the U.S.A. and Europe. Her life philosophy was to live in the present, live one day at a time, and to find joy in every day regardless of the circumstances. She was at peace when she died, firm in her belief that she had lived her life fully and with no regrets for any of the decisions that she had made in her lifetime. Saille was born on December 3, 1962 in Montreal. Her early education took place in Montreal, Edmonton and Brentwood, B.C.. She graduated from Queen's University (Kingston) in 1985 with a Bachelor of Arts and Physical Health and Education. Saille's work immediately after graduation involved Sport Canada and a number of sport/athletic associations. Later, as a social justice and health research facilitator, her work took her to Charlottetown, Ottawa and Toronto. Still later in 1996, Saille attended the Tamalpa Institute, California, where she studied expressive arts therapy (movement-based) to realize one of the abiding passions in her life. Saille taught expressive movement classes in Vancouver and led a communitybased improvisational movement group dedicated to social justice issues. Most recently, Saille was studying in the United Kingdom to become a Buddhist minister. Saille was known for the love, care and compassion that she showed to her immediate family, to her nieces and nephews, to all her Friends and to virtually everyone that she met. Starting at a very early age, Saille devoted considerable time to caring for the physically and mentally disadvantaged. Her ability to connect and communicate with people in all walks of life was legendary. She encouraged compromise, openness to new ideas, support for the underdog and generosity of spirit. And she taught us so much by example. She is survived by her mother and father, Wendy and John ABBOTT, her sisters Heather, Jennifer and Andrea, by her nieces and nephews Zoe, Sam and Joshua ABBOTT- TAIT/TAITE/TATE, Weston ABBOTT- ARCAN, and Jessa and Tahlea BALINT, and by her brother-in-law Ian TAIT/TAITE/TATE, Sean BALINT, and Matthew HART. She will be sorely missed by all and forever remembered for her loving care and wisdom. The Celebration of Saille's life will take place on Friday, June 20 starting at 3: 00 p.m., at the family home at 18863 Centreville Creek Road in the Town of Caledon; telephone (905) 584-1326. Friends and family are most welcome. Please no donations or flowers, but Saille has requested that each should do something that will bring joy to a friend, a neighbour, or someone in need. From Saille: ' -- and so my dear Friends, I hope you will each choose to journey with me on your own ride, walk, jump, dance, skip of this one wild and precious life that we have each been given. I will meet you there -- '

The moment that you died, Our hearts were split in two. One side filled with memories, the other died with you. The years we had with you, are worth their weight in gold, The joy and laughter you gave us. are ours to have and hold. We hold you within our hearts, And know one thing true, In God's grace we'll be together, Once again, Me and You. Love you forever and deeply missed Lorna, Lorrie, Jamie, Jason and family.

BALL, Robert " Bob" Harvey
(January 1, 1929-February 28, 2008)
Bob died at home on Thursday morning, in the tender care of his family. He was loved beyond telling by his wife and sweetheart Janet (née MORROW,) five grateful children, Timothy (d. 1984,) David, Anna GARDNER (John BROCKE,) Doug, and Nathan (Paula KILCOYNE,) as well as 15 beautiful grandchildren, two newly born great-grandchildren, and the hundreds of people whose lives he touched. Born and raised in Regina, Bob will be profoundly missed by his older siblings from Saskatchewan and their extended families; Margaret BLOMMAERT, Jim BALL and Fran APPERLY. Graduating from Scott Collegiate with Honours, Bob began an agricultural degree at University of Saskatoon before he followed a deeper call to sow seeds of the spirit and till soil in the lives of people. After marrying Janet in 1952 he worked the gold mines in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories and as a Fuller Brush Salesman to put himself through seminary at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario with two infants. As a Home Missions pastor with the Canadian Baptist Union, Bob grew and nurtured young churches in the small towns of Kitimat and Richmond, British Columbia, and Jasper, Alberta. His innovative programming with young adults in the national park stood him in good stead during his term on the pastoral team at First Baptist Church, Calgary from 1971-1976 where he established the Burning Bush Coffee House ministry for youth. Inspired in part by staying as a family in a chalet at L'Abri in Switzerland in 1969, Bob began dreaming and envisioning along with Janet, about creating a hospitality based ecumenical renewal centre. King's Fold Retreat Centre, located in the foothills of the Rockies celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and continues to be place of beauty, peace and deep inspiration for people from all walks of life. Bob was a master stained glass artist, a visionary, an entrepreneur, a dreamer, a romantic, a barista, and a lover of life par excellence. He will be celebrated at Central United Church, Calgary on Monday, March 3 at 11: 00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to King's Fold Retreat Centre, L'Arche Canada Foundation or the Henri Nouwen Society.

BALL, Jonathan
Teacher, lawyer, photographer, husband, brother, friend. Born March 15, 1947, in Redlands, California. Died March 3 in Toronto of sudden cardiac arrest, aged 60.
By Miriam MITTERMAIER, Page L6
Jon was an achiever from the start. In grade school, he was excellent in all subjects and a favourite with teachers and classmates. In high school, he was both an academic prize winner and the drum major. He attended Stanford University on a prestigious National Merit scholarship.
He had every opportunity to become conceited, but he remained incurably modest. He took pride in quirky things. As a child, he became the neighbourhood hula-hoop and pogo-stick champion. Later came a tandem bicycle, a motorcycle and an open Morgan, a vintage Victrola, a stereopticon and garage-sale cameras. Although he shrugged off his more conventional achievements, he loved showing these off.
Jon lived his values. He never preached, but refused to go to Vietnam. He was never demonstrative, but maintained warm, generous ties to Friends, family, beloved cats and, above all, his wife Lynne. They were a team, helping each other achieve their dreams and sharing adventures: Nova Scotia by motorcycle in the rain Tiananmen Square days before the massacre; Berlin as the Wall was coming down.
Jon's intelligence, humour, values and warmth came together in his two careers. He was a natural teacher, able to explain complex concepts clearly and make learning fun. Teaching combined well with adventure - he spent two years in Ghana with Canadian University Services Organization, and two in a Cree school in Moosonee, Ontario
He loved teaching, but also observing law courts wherever he went. So, in his 40s, he qualified as a lawyer and began his second career as a Crown attorney with the child-abuse team. He lasted far longer than most in this emotionally wrenching job. He was known for his empathy with children, his unshakeable fairness, his courtesy, his legal skill and his Friendship and teamwork with colleagues across the system.
In June, 2007, Jon took early retirement. Although short, it was filled with things he loved: walking the beach in Cobourg, Ontario; exploring by kayak and scooter; teaching law; solving sudokus; learning the bagpipes; printing and sharing his photos maintaining connections.
On March 3, while having lunch with Friends, Jon collapsed and died. At his memorial gathering, two rooms were packed despite a major blizzard. Attending were family, Friends and people from across the justice system. His family learned how his co-operative spirit and search for truth had influenced his co-workers; colleagues, in turn, were moved to hear that the qualities they had admired in Jon's work were present throughout all aspects of his life.
Miriam MITTERMAIER is Jon's sister.
