I long to see her kindly face, I long to see her smile, I long to see her tender eyes, And to sit by my side for a while, I long to hold her hand in mine, And tell her how much I cared, And how glad I am to know it was me, With whom her life she shared, No one will ever take her place, And no one ever can, To brighten my life the way she did, This sweet and lovely lady, I know I will wait until we meet, Upon that other shore, Where life goes on forever, We shall part no more, And be together always. Your loving husband always Eric, Margaret and Ray, Dianne and Eric and grandchildren.

15-year-old boy killed driving on a rural road
By The Canadian Press, Mon., June 30, 2008
Jarvis -- A 15-year-old boy is dead after the all-terrain vehicle he was driving crashed into another vehicle near Jarvis.
Ontario Provincial Police said the teen was going through a rural intersection around 6: 30 p.m. Saturday when the all-terrain vehicle crashed into a vehicle.
The driver of the all-terrain vehicle, identified as Jake RICHARDSON of Peacock Point was pronounced dead at the scene.
Const. Paula WRIGHT said the people in the vehicle were taken to hospital with minor injuries and later released.
RICHARDSON's death comes on the heels of another all-terrain vehicle crash that claimed the life of a 52-year-old Dunnville man last Wednesday.
Ian KLEIN, who may have been trapped under his vehicle for up to 10 hours before being discovered, was found after crashing into a ditch.
Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Michael PRICE, off-road safety co-ordinator with the highway safety division, said all-terrain vehicles have grown in popularity. The biggest users are in the 25- to 45-year-old age range. On private property and trails, kids must be under close parental supervision, PRICE said.

Ottawa pilot lived for his plane - and died in it
By Peter CHENEY, Page A3
For six years, Bruce MacKINNON worked in his garage in southeastern Ottawa, building an airplane so perfect it didn't need paint to cover the errors that usually come with shaping raw metal into a flying machine.
Instead, the naked aluminum skin of Mr. MacKINNON's Van's RV-3 was polished to a mirror finish, exposing every detail. His airplane could stand the scrutiny: Each rivet was flawless, and the panels fit with BMW precision.
"It was a Swiss watch," said aircraft expert Dale LAMPORT, who served as a technical adviser to Mr. MacKINNON. " You couldn't do a better job."
Mr. MacKINNON was a Renaissance man. He was a licensed pilot, a trained commercial diver, and one of the world's top experts in the arcane yet critical field of bird and airplane interaction, studying ways to prevent crashes caused by bird strikes. He was a highly placed official at Transport Canada, but had spent years working as a park ranger. He graduated from the University of Calgary, where he paid his way by working as a machinist.
Mr. MacKINNON was 61, but could pass for 45: He got off the bus miles before his office, so he could get in an hour of walking before work. Aviation was a lifelong passion, and he had always dreamed of building an RV-3, a tiny, single-seat machine that appeals to purists. He bought a kit in 2000. By the time he emerged from his garage workshop six years later, he had created a flying dissertation on the art of aircraft construction, perfect in every detail.
Mr. MacKINNON's relationship with his airplane was not uncomplicated. Shortly after finishing it, he considered selling it, concerned that the dangers of flight might be excessive for a man with a wife and a young daughter. "He assessed the risk, and he drew the line in a new place," said fellow pilot and airplane builder Randy LERVOLD.
But then Mr. MacKINNON changed his mind, deciding that he would keep flying after all. A few weeks later, he e-mailed Mr. LERVOLD to tell him how much he enjoyed his airplane. "Glad you stuck with it," Mr. LERVOLD replied.
And it went on from there. Almost every weekend, Mr. MacKINNON would head out to the Carp Regional Airport to work on his treasured RV-3, then take off for a flight over the green Ontario countryside.
Mr. MacKINNON's love affair with his airplane came to a tragic end last Sunday, when he died in a fiery crash at Simcoe Regional Airport, north of Toronto. Although the accident is still under investigation by the Transportation Safety Board, it appears the crash was caused by a landing that went bad, bouncing him back into the air nose-high and creating an unrecoverable low-altitude stall.
Mr. MacKINNON lived in Ottawa with his wife, Sylvie LALONDE, a school principal, and their 10-year-old daughter, Maxine. Ms. LALONDE wept as she recalled her husband's passion for flying, and for the little airplane that ultimately killed him.
"Bruce loved everything about it," she said. "He loved being in the sky, he loved airplanes and he loved talking to the other pilots. It was part of him."
Ms. LALONDE said she had always harboured concerns about the risks of flying, but knew that it would be useless to ask her husband to quit: "That sense of adventure was important to him. I couldn't keep him back. If I told him it was too dangerous, he'd say, 'You don't understand.' "
Ms. LALONDE didn't find out about her husband's death for nearly two days. She and Maxine had gone to a chalet near Mont Tremblant. Mr. MacKINNON had planned to spend some time flying, then join them later in the week.
When the Ontario Provincial Police finally tracked her down, Ms. LALONDE instantly knew what was wrong. "I know what you're going to tell me," she said.
For his fellow aviators, Mr. MacKINNON's crash is yet another reminder of the risks inherent to their chosen passion. "You can't deny it," said Mark RICHARDSON, an airplane builder who shared a hangar with Mr. MacKINNON. "… You train, you study and you prepare, but you can't make it go away."
Mr. MacKINNON was considered a careful, well-prepared pilot. After completing his RV-3, he travelled to Oregon to take training with an RV specialist, even though he was already an experienced flier. "Bruce wasn't a slipshod guy," Mr. LERVOLD said. "He did everything by the book." As he built his RV-3, Mr. MacKINNON consulted with a long list of builders and experts, picking their brains on everything from aerodynamics to metal fabrication.
Mr. RICHARDSON, who watched Mr. MacKINNON take his first flight in the RV-3 in 2006, said other pilots would study his crash in the hope that they might avoid a similar fate.
"You learn from other pilots' experiences," he said. "You just hope that you don't end up providing a learning experience yourself."

It is with a sadness tempered by Hope that we announce the passing of Joyce on Tuesday July 8, 2008. Joyce will be eternally loved by her late husband Lloyd. She was a loving mother to Dwight and Jeffrey, a caring mother-in-law to Renata and an inspirational Grandy to Morgan Lee, Matthew and Thomas. We are certain that Joyce's memory will always be in the heart of her sister Helen and brother-in-law Ed ROACH, her brother-in-law and sister-in-law Eric and Marg RUSSELL, and her many nieces, nephews and their families in both Ontario and California, most particularly her beloved Marilyn. Joyce's devotion to her family and Friends, her strength of character and commitment to God provide comfort now that she has become a part of that good night. To remember Joyce a donation may be made to the Centre for Continuing Care and Rehabilitation at York Central Hospital or to a charity of your choice. Condolences - www.rskane.ca R.S.
