LINKLATER, Harold Fraser
Harold Fraser LINKLATER was born on October 1, 1917 in Teeswater, Ontario to Harvey and Gladys (née Mason FRASER) LINKLATER. He was the oldest of three brothers. Until his death all four of them were still living - I'm sure that is a record for four brothers who had survived World War 2. Harold died at 90 and all his brothers are in their 80s. His great-grandparents arrived in Canada from the Orkneys in Scotland in 1852 and some of his great-uncles had come to Canada with the Hudson's Bay Company. The family moved to Kincardine in August 1929 when his father Harvey bought the furniture store and funeral home from W.H.A. MORRISON. He worked helping his father from age 12, but really started that career in 1935 when he finished Grade 12. In 1937-38 he took courses at the Banting Institute and General Hospital in Toronto. At 19 he got his license as an undertaker but couldn't use it until he was 21. He married Nora Elizabeth DIMOND on November 20, 1940. In May 1940 he had joined the Canadian army. He went into Officer training in Brockville and between 1940 to 1943 he was stationed in Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia. In World War 2 he went overseas in June 1944 before the invasion of France and stayed there until the fall of 1946. He was in the 19th Self-Propelled Regiment. He was a Captain by the time the war ended. His daughter Elizabeth Ann was born in 1949 and son John Douglas in 1951. He was a Rover Scout and became a cub and scout leader. He was on the Kincardine Public School Board for 10 years, belonged to the Rotary Club, the Kinsmen, the Masonic Lodge and was president of the Chamber of Commerce for two years and received an award. In 1970 he was chairman of the Old Boy's and Girls Reunion Committee and won the award of Citizen of the Year. He cherished the silver tray that he was given to him with that inscription. The award was reported in the London Free Press. Ballots were received from as far away as Michigan and from across the province. It was the largest number of ballots at that time and 70 percent voted for him. His pride and joy was the cottage he built on Crab Cove near Red Bay. He bought the lakefront property in 1952 for $350 and in 1953 he and his neighbour Ed HAGEDORN put up the frame. He worked both at the Linklater Funeral Home and the Linklater Furniture Store. From 1966 to 1974 he owned and operated the funeral business by himself. In 1974 at age 57 he sold the Funeral business although he helped the new owner in the summers for 4-5 years afterwards. In 1974 he and Nora bought a place in Lakeland, Florida and started going there in the winters in 1975. Nora died on his birthday, October 1, 1988 after a 48-year marriage. He married Helen Emma HAYES (née COULSON) of Saint Thomas and Lakeland, Florida on July 22 1989. He and Helen lived at the cottage until September 2000 and in Owen Sound since then. They wintered in Lakeland until 1995 when Harold got cancer of the jaw. He survived that as he did a heart attack, strokes, blindness, and several operations. He was tenacious and had a tremendous will to live through all of these ailments until April 2008 when he accepted he was failing. Perhaps being a funeral director had given him this will to live because he had to live with death around him for so many years. Harold is survived by his beloved wife Helen, his daughter Elizabeth (Liza) and her husband James TROTTIER of Manila, Philippines, his son Douglas (Doug) of Red Bay, his grandchildren Jesse and Dane of Barrie, his brothers Ken (and Reita) of Kincardine, Bryce (and Alma) of Jarvis and Gordon (and Joan) of Toronto, and his former daughter-in-law, Dianne LINKLATER of Kincardine; his step-family Helen (and Bert) WRAY of Durham and their children Marla (and Lee) ZWOLMAN of Milton, Kevin and David WRAY; and to Marg NICHOL (and Gerald) of Brampton, Donald FINDLAY (and Teresa) of Campbell River, British Columbia and William FINDLAY (and Gazelle) of Winnipeg; as well as everyone's children and many grandchildren, great- and great-great-grandchildren. Heartfelt thanks and affection are extended to dearest Helen, Helen and Bert WRAY of Durham, Fern and Ken FYNN, Linda CRANDALL and Ab LIPSETT and Mary VAN TRIGT, all of Owen Sound for their loving care and assistance over the last years. A memorial service took place on Monday May 5 at the Kincardine cemetery and was followed by a reception at Knox Presbyterian Church. Arrangements were made by Harold's friend Tom WHITCROFT of the Thomas C. Whitcroft Funeral Home and Chapel in Sauble Beach. Donations can be made to the charity of your choice.

COLE, David Kenneth (1946-2008)
Those of us who knew and love David will not dishonor his memory with cliché and sentiment. Let it just be said that in his absence there is a hole in the world that will never be filled. This is fact, not sentiment. Let it be also said that our lives will be forever diminished. This is a fact. We must all start again and carry on and try to be brave.
To strike a conventional note: David is survived by his cherished daughter Meghan and his baby granddaughter Ivy Rose RIENHARDT, by his son Lliam, whom he loved so much, and (yet another) baby granddaughter Isabel Marie, by Anne BROMLEY, Meghan and Lliam's mother and David's former wife, whom he admired and loved to the end of his life, by his beloved brother and sister Tim and Ardra, by Tim's daughter Alex and finally by his adoring and grateful twin spirit of over thirty years, Barbie NICHOL.
And by Mister Brown.
For those with a mind to, the family would be so thankful for any memories you might think of to put on paper. There will be a place to leave these notes at the Memorial.
The Memorial Service will be held at Trinity-St Paul United Church (427 Bloor Street West) at 3 p.m. on Friday, June 6th, with a wake afterwards at Sarah and Tom MILROY's house at 73 Linwood Ave.
There will be a service in Nova Scotia at a time yet to be decided upon.
Davey's ashes will be dispersed on Nova Scotia's Atlantic shore. His home.

HILL- In loving memory of Barbara (NICHOLS) HILL, January 2, 2007.
Your Heart is Your Garden
Your heart is like your garden
Old fashioned, quaint and sweet
With here a wealth of blossoms
And there a still retreat
Sweet violets are hiding
We know as we pass by
And lilies pure as angel thoughts
Are opening somewhere nigh.
Forget-me-nots there linger
To full perfection brought
And there bloom purple pansies
In many a tender thought
There loves' own roses blossom
As from enchanted ground
And lavish perfume exquisite
The whole glad year around.
And in the quiet garden
The garden of your heart
Songbirds are always singing
Their songs of cheer apart
And from it floats forever
Overcoming sin and strife
Sweet as the breath of roses blown
The fragrance of your life.
Donald Hore 2005.
Love from Bonnie, Wendy, Carol, Melody, Allison, Ean and families.

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.

He was a proud son of the late Arthur and Nina KNIGHTS of Pembroke, Ontario. Glen was further blessed with many great Friends from Wisconsin to Mexico, British Columbia to Nova Scotia, and all four corners of the world.

Services will be held at 4: 00 p.m. Saturday, July 19, 2008 in the Chapel, York Cemetery, 160 Beecroft Road, Toronto, Ontario.
