In the flowers of spring time
And in the stars at night
The heart is like a treasure chest
That's filled with souvenirs
It's there to keep the memories
We gather through the years.
We cannot lose the ones we love
For they will always stay
In all that's bright and beautiful
Around us every day.

POTTS, Phyllis Catharine (née McLEOD)
Phyllis Catharine POTTS, beloved wife of the late Dean POTTS, passed away after a brief illness on January 6, 2008 in Centre Grey Hospital, Markdale, Ontario in her 82nd year.
Phyllis was born on December 24, 1926 to Katie (CAMPBELL) and Marshall McLEOD, on Lot 11, Conc. 9 Nottawasaga Township, nestled between the hills of Glen Huron and Dunedin. She was the third of eight children, namely Hazel (Harry ROWLEY,) Don (Betty,) Jean (Joe YAGER,) Marion (William GORDON,) Charles (Maureen,) Mildred (James WALKER) and Helen (Ronald WRIGHT.)
Phyllis earned her education at S.S.#16 Nottawasaga, Glen Huron, Ontario, writing her entrance in Singhampton. After completing school she would go to work at Dunedin General Store. She worked in the homes of the Bowerman's and Sherlock METHERAL's before venturing off to Collingwood to work in Dominion Woolens Textiles Peerless factory which made denim products; and Woolworth Department Store. During that time she boarded at the homes of the Aikins', Hornsby's, Martin's and Wilson's.
Phyllis married Wallace Dean POTTS on October 15, 1955 in Dunedin Knox Presbyterian Church, with a reception in Stayner. A honeymoon was enjoyed in Niagara Falls and also a few days in Northern Ontario. Then returning to start a new life on the family farm on the third line of Osprey Township, between McIntyre and Badjeros. Phyllis continued to work in Collingwood for awhile, before coming home to help Dean on the farm and sawmill and preparing many meals for the hired men who helped in the fields and at the sawmill. No one ever left the table hungry.
Phyllis and Dean had two children, a stillborn son in 1961 and a daughter Judith Phyllis in 1965. Judy married Dan WICKENS on October 15, 1988 and lives close by. Phyllis enjoyed watching her two grandchildren Katie and Lori growing up next door, taking advantage of every opportunity to watch them in their activities. She was indeed a "proud" Grandma.
Phyllis and Dean celebrated 44 years of marriage at the time of Dean's passing in 2000. She was fortunate to live on the family farm until her time of passing.
Baking, flowerbeds, visiting and chatting with family and Friends, and the occasional bus trip, were some of the things that she enjoyed and that helped to pass the time for Phyllis.
Phyllis was predeceased by her parents Marshall in 1987 and Katie in 1989. Husband Dean (2000), sister Jean (1999) and brother-in-law Joe YAGER (1998,) brother Charles (2007.)

CARLSON, Gerald
Master piano technician, hall of fame bowler, brother, friend. Born November 18, 1937, in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia Died November 16, 2007, in Toronto of complications related to throat cancer, aged By Jeremy ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, Page L6
The eldest of eight children, Gerry left school in Grade 7 to help care for his siblings when his mother became ill and his father was working double shifts in the coal mine.
Gerry never went back to school, but he never stopped learning. In 1954, he moved to Toronto and found work as a pipefitter, then as a piano mover for Heintzman and Co. A quick study and a hard worker, he was soon employed in the repair shop replacing tuning pins on pianos in less than five hours, a tremendous feat.
Although he spent a brief stint at Mason and Risch (which allowed him to claim he had worked at "all" the piano makers in Toronto), Gerry worked for close to 20 years at Heintzman, or "Heintzmans" as he called it.
In 1972, Paul HAHN hired Gerry to help in the workshop of his Toronto piano store, Paul Hahn and Co., during a busy patch. Gerry never left.
On his 65th birthday, Gerry mused about retiring, but he decided to continue working. Not that he was defined by his job as a piano technician. A confirmed bachelor, Gerry had the free time to indulge his passions, whether that was five-pin bowling (at one point bowling in 11 leagues and, in 2001, inducted to the Ontario 5 Pin Bowlers' Association Hall of Fame), or betting on "the ponies" or golfing with his buddies.
Gerry seemed to find his calling in the last 10 years of his life. Paul HAHN's daughter, Alex HAHN, took over the piano store just as she was starting her family. Trying to balance the pressures of running a business and raising her children meant she often brought the kids to work when they were young. Gerry, who had never had children, became a playmate at the store.
One night in 2001, Alex and her husband, Allan, were desperate for a babysitter and asked Gerry if he would look after the children. He became from that moment a surrogate grandfather to Allister, Andrew and Allie.
Gerry worked tirelessly as babysitter, friend, coach, goaltender, wrestling partner, chaperone, even teddy bear for young Allie when she couldn't sleep. Last year, he and the children took full advantage of the $2 Tuesdays Blue Jays baseball games. His big grin when he noticed himself (surrounded by children) displayed on the video screen said it all.
Gerry was selfless with his time, often remarking to his Friends when leaving the bowling alley to look after the kids that he was "going to have fun." As a technician, he was without equal, as a bowler, with few peers, and as a friend to the little ones, irreplaceable. We will miss him.
Jeremy ELLIOT/ELLIOTT is Gerry's colleague.

Ottawa insider was at the centre of the October Crisis of 1970
Schoolteacher who joined the Privy Council Office thrived in the inner sanctums of power. He served five prime ministers, including Pierre Trudeau, whom he considered a friend
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S8
Ottawa -- It was the beginning of the October Crisis, and Jack CROSS was secretive when he called home to say he wouldn't be there for dinner. "I can't tell you why," he told his wife, Doris. "I'll be home when I can."
The date was October 15, 1970, and the federal cabinet was meeting to consider proclaiming the War Measures Act after the terrorist group Front de libération du Québec (FLQ) had kidnapped British trade commissioner James Cross and Quebec labour minister Pierre Laporte.
A few hours later, the government went ahead and Mr. CROSS, the assistant clerk of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada (orders-in-council), played a unique role in a drama that would divide opinion from coast to coast. Some people believed the government had overreacted by suspending basic civil rights, while others applauded prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau for protecting Canadians from an insurrection.
A career civil servant who had worked for six prime ministers from Mackenzie King to Mr. Trudeau, Mr. CROSS watched anxiously from Parliament Hill as the drama unfolded. Wondering whether "this still could be Canada," he waited while Mr. Trudeau consulted his advisers.
"Canadians might've been accustomed to uniforms and arms during wartime, but to have them appear in peacetime gave one an uneasy feeling," Mr. CROSS said decades later.
Finally, at 3 a.m., Mr. CROSS got his orders. Mr. Trudeau may have decided to proclaim the act, but certain legalities had to be observed. Mr. CROSS would drive to Rideau Hall and get it signed by Governor-General Roland MICHENER.
That short trip was not without drama, Mr. CROSS said in 1996. Within minutes, his armed bodyguard noticed that a car seemed to be tailing them. "When it got alongside, it slowed down, which made him very nervous. It stayed with us a little while, then sped away."
A few minutes later, Mr. CROSS arrived at Rideau Hall and was ushered in to see Mr. MICHENER, who was waiting in his dressing gown and pyjamas. As the Queen's representative in Canada, he wasn't going to sign something he was uncertain about, so Mr. CROSS had to some explaining. "He had some hesitation about signing a document that strong," Mr. CROSS said.
Mr. CROSS then had to go to the Queen's Printer to get the act printed. The final legality was to affix the Great Seal of Canada to the original. By that time, it was 6 a.m. Even so, his night was not over.
Back on Parliament Hill, 35 reporters clamoured for details as the sun came up. Mr. CROSS's boss, Gordon ROBERTSON, the clerk of the Privy Council, agreed that he and Mr. CROSS would answer their questions.
After Mr. ROBERTSON spoke, Mr. CROSS took over. Described in that day's edition of the Ottawa Citizen as a "second spokesman," he outlined the act's history. It had been invoked only twice, and that was during each world war.
"It is a blunt instrument. If we had had more emergencies, graduated instruments with dealing with certain kinds of emergencies might have been developed," he told the reporters. "But now it is the whole damn thing or nothing. Once proclaimed, it is up to the government to exercise discretion - the powers used should be commensurate to the conditions."
It had been an unforgettable night, both for Mr. CROSS and for Canada. By the time the impromptu press conference was over, Montreal police were already rounding up the first 500 people. Mr. CROSS went home for breakfast and then returned to work. Tragically, Mr. Laporte was found murdered on October 17, while Mr. CROSS of Britain was released unharmed December 3.
The son of Wesley CROSS and Louisa CROSS, he was the youngest of eight children raised on a farm near Chesterville, Ontario, a village located just west of Cornwall. After high school, he attended Ottawa Teachers College and graduated in 1934. His first assignment was to teach at a one-room schoolhouse near Chesterville. He remained there for several years and left teaching to enlist in the Royal Canadian Air Force after the outbreak of the Second World War. He served in a secret radar group attached to a night squadron in Yorkshire, England.
After demobilization, he started work with the Privy Council Office on February 1, 1945, the day after he was interviewed. "I had never heard of it. One of their men had left the previous day and they wanted him replaced as quickly as possible. It was just a matter of timing," Mr. CROSS told his cousin Clarence.
Then numbering only 35 people, the Privy Council Office was housed in the East Block of Parliament Hill. During the war, it had issued 12,000 orders-in-council per year, but a radical reorganization was needed and Mr. CROSS played a part in that, editing and publishing orders and regulations.
Mr. CROSS met about everyone in government, including Mackenzie King, who visited "at least once a year. He'd sit by the window, and reminisce about what he had done in his past and about government. It was always a very friendly visit."
Meanwhile, he had met someone else who ended up being very important. Some time in 1953, a friend invited him to go bowling, where he encountered an attractive young woman named Doris. Little did he know that they had been set up by his friend, who had decided to play matchmaker. They began seeing each other and romance bloomed. They married in 1955.
Over the next 31 years, Mr. CROSS built an enviable reputation as a senior civil servant, a behind-the scenes expert in many areas, including the documentation and protocol for the appointment and installation of ministers of the Crown and provincial lieutenants-governor.
Working for such famous privy council clerks as Arnold Heaney, Jack Pickersgill and Mr. ROBERTSON, he knew of developments long before they became public knowledge. He kept those secrets to himself. "He was a very private man who believed strongly in his official oath of secrecy," said his daughter, Catherine TRYON. "He knew what was going on before it happened, he knew about cabinet shuffles, and when an election was to be called."
One day in 1967, Mr. CROSS inadvertently let the cat out of the bag. He prematurely informed Mr. Trudeau that he was promoted to minister of justice. Prime Minister Lester Pearson had arrived later than expected from a trip and hadn't had time to ask Mr. Trudeau to accept the portfolio. "Mr. Trudeau, realizing my embarrassment, quickly assured me he would express surprise [to Mr. Pearson] later that morning."
Ms. TRYON realized her father knew a lot of important people, but "he was just my dad. I admired him for being a kind and loving father, devoted to his church, community, country and family. He didn't care about someone's rank, background or accomplishments. What he respected most was kindness, honesty and generosity."
Working at the highest level of government didn't mean Mr. CROSS, who cherished Canada's system of parliamentary democracy, lost his humanity. In the 1960s, he was able to cut red tape at two federal departments - Veterans' Affairs and National Defence - when they denied a terminally-ill woman the Canadian Memorial Cross 20 years after her adopted son was killed during the war.
At the time, only natural mothers could receive the award. Within three days, Mr. CROSS had the definition of "mother" changed, and the woman received her silver cross.
The last prime minister Mr. CROSS worked for was Mr. Trudeau, whom he met in 1949 when the latter was hired by the Privy Council Office. Their offices were two doors apart on the East Block's third floor and they soon became Friends. In fact, they may have been distantly related. Mr. Trudeau's mother was Grace ELLIOT/ELLIOTT while Mr. CROSS's mother was Louisa ELLIOT/ELLIOTT.
"They worked together, bowled together and according to my father 'even did some girl watching together.' Years later, Pierre would tell my father's staff, 'I used to work for Jack too!' " said Ms. TRYON.
After Mr. CROSS retired from the Privy Council Office in 1976, Mr. Trudeau paid him a singular tribute. "I hold Jack CROSS in high regard. He is a devoted, talented man, a friend who gave me my first job."
For his decades of devoted service, Mr. CROSS was appointed a member of the Order of Canada in 1985. His citation mentioned his 1973 book, Guide to Canadian Ministries since Confederation July 1867-April 1973.
After working as a consultant, Mr. CROSS and his wife moved back to Chesterville in 1981. He spent his retirement with various community organizations such as the Shriners and Rotary. He also liked to play bridge and putter around his house.
Jack Lester CROSS was born in Chesterville, Ontario, on May 6, 1911. He died of natural causes in Ottawa on March 25. He was 96. He leaves his wife, Doris, daughter Catherine, sister Dorothea and five grandchildren. His son, Ronald, predeceased him.
