It's been a year now since God and His angels called you away.
If Roses Grow in Heaven
If roses grow in Heaven Lord
Please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother's arms
And tell her they're from me.
Tell her I love and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy.
I do it every day,
But there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away.

SEAGRAM, Charles Joseph, Q.C.
Barrie, Ontario
(May 20, 1918-January 29, 2008)
Charlie died peacefully at Grove Park Home on Tuesday January 29, 2008 in his 90th year. He is survived by his loving wife Joyce (née LITTLE) 4 children, 12 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild: David (Martha) and their children Tina and Phillip of Cincinnati Jim (Carol) and their children Jason, Kathleen, Naomi (Brian) and baby Kristina, and Sarah of Stayner; Kathy (Jamie SMITH) and their children Leona, William, Julia and Grace of Alliston and Becky (John GUTTERIDGE) and their children Katie-Ann and Rebecca of London. Charlie is the brother of Adine HUSSEY of Toronto and the late Leona CLARK of Victoria. He is the brother-in-law of Doctor Bill LITTLE (Margaret) of Vankoughnet. Charlie was born in Orillia, Ontario in 1918 and moved to Barrie in 1919. At the age of 11 he attended Trinity College School, Port Hope where for the next 7 years he excelled in both athletics (he was a football, cricket, squash and tennis champion) and academics. Crowning his career at Trinity College School he won the All Round Athletic Honours in addition to winning the All Round Top Academic Student Award in 2 consecutive years. Charlie made Friendships at Trinity College School which have lasted a lifetime and which followed him through his army and war experiences, law school and later his law practice. Charlie graduated from University of Toronto in 1939 and Osgoode Hall in 1942. In 1943 he went overseas as a member of the 48th Highlanders and Infantry Regiment as a First Lieutenant. He saw active service in Italy and Continental Europe between January 1944 and September 1945. Following the war, Charlie joined the Barrie law firm of Boys and Boys in 1947 and with Ozzie ROWE, bought the firm in 1949, changing the name to Boys, Seagram and Rowe. 1949 also marked the biggest merger of Charlie's life, marrying Joyce LITTLE, daughter of the late Doctor Bill and Kitty LITTLE. Charlie's active and generous life included a 7 year term as a bencher of the Law Society of Upper Canada, President of the Simcoe County Law Association, a Director of Sterling Trust, Warden and Sidesman of Trinity Anglican Church, a Director of the Barrie Golf and Country Club and member of the Scottish Country Dancers. His love of sports continued throughout his life as he remained active in golf and curling. But the sport for which Charlie will be most remembered is tennis, playing and talking a mean game into his early 80's. When he didn't have a tennis racquet in his hand, he would have a chain saw, garden trowel or a rake, as he loved working outdoors at the house, cottage or bush lot. Always the life of the party, Charlie's wit and humour endeared him to all. He was a loving husband, caring father and friend, and will be deeply missed. We give thanks for the life of this extraordinary dear man. Friends may call at the Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home, 30 Worsley Street, Barrie on Friday from 2: 30-5:30 p.m.. The Funeral Service will held at Trinity Anglican Church, 24 Collier Street, Barrie on Saturday February 2, 2008 at 11 a.m. Spring interment Barrie Union Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, you may wish to make a donation in memory of Charlie to Grove Park Home, Trinity Anglican Church, Royal Victoria Hospital, Barrie, or Trinity College School Scholarship Fund, Port Hope.

MORAND, Kathleen Beatrice (née LITTLE)
Medieval art expert and onetime head of the Department of Art at Queen's University (1978-1984)
Died peacefully at Kingston General Hospital on December 2, 2007, following a stroke, in her 93rd year. Born August 13, 1915, in Belfast. She was predeceased by parents James and Mary LITTLE and brothers William Eric and James Lawrence, and by her ex-husband and good friend, Sigmund MORAND, whom she married, in London, England, in the mid-1930s and divorced amicably circa 1960. She is survived by nieces Pamela CORNELL, of Kingston, and Rosemary WAGNER, of Vancouver; and by nephews John REID, of Vancouver, Tony and Donald REID, of England. Doctor MORAND earned her M.A. and PhD degrees at the Courtauld Institute, University of London, then lectured there and at the Brighton College of Art, before going to the University of California at Santa Barbara and, in 1970, joining the faculty at Queen's. As a teacher, she was much respected for her art history survey courses and her advanced medieval seminars. As an administrator, she negotiated to establish (in 1980) a graduate program in art history at Queen's, when the only other such program in Ontario was offered by the University of Toronto. As a scholar, her publications included a seminal work on Claus Sluter (1991), a monograph on Jean Pucelle (1962), numerous reviews for The Burlington Magazine, and a number of entries for the Encyclopedia Britannica. During her retirement, she travelled extensively, enjoyed fine food and wine with her Friends, collected contemporary art, and was a wide-ranging reader until macular degeneration led her to spend more time listening to current affairs and classical music programs on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio. Before fracturing a hip in 2004, she was an exceptionally energetic walker, whose trim figure, smooth skin, and light auburn hair made her look many years younger than she actually was. A memorial gathering will take place Friday, May 2, 2008 at 5: 00 p.m., in the atrium of the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, University Avenue at Bader Lane, Kingston.

CAMPBELL, Ronald McLachlan
Ron's last flight left Victoria at 2220 Thursday, March 13, 2008. The first child of "Sandy" Alexander McLachlan and "Lil" Christian CAMPBELL, Ron was born in Calgary, Alberta on May 29th, 1915. Due to the demands of the First World War, Sandy registered his elder son's birth as the 30th of May - perhaps that explains why Ron was usually early and never late.
Ron was predeceased by his beloved "Pudding", his adored wife of over 60 years, Phyllis Sara CAMPBELL in 2006. His brother Ken and sister Betty also predeceased him. His passing leaves a deep hole in the lives of his children of the heart, Hilarie McMURRAY and her partner Jack LITWINOWICH of Victoria and Steveston, British Columbia, Bill McMURRAY, his wife Mary and their children Scott and Elspeth of Senneville Quebec. His nieces of the heart Joanne TUSTIN of Victoria and Debbie TUSTIN of Duncan grieve the loss of their Uncle Ron. Also left to mourn are his baby sister Margaret STEVENSON of San Diego, California, his sister-in-law Helen CAMPBELL of Victoria, his cousin Bea WARD of Sidney, his brother-in-law Alan KIMBER and his wife Roberta of Lethbridge, Alberta and Ron's special Friends Bruce and Carol Gowans of Calgary, Alberta and long time friend George McMurray of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Ron leaves many Campbell and Kimber nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews across Canada and the United States.
Ron was a pioneer of Canadian aviation, graduating in 1933 from the first Aircraft Maintenance course at the then Provincial Institute of Technology and Art in Calgary (now SAIT). He and his friend Sheldon Luck made the first night flight over the Rockies in 1935 from Williams Lake to Calgary - Ron struck and held the long Eddy matches so Sheldon the pilot could see the compass in their single engine Puss Moth. Ron went on to a stellar career with Trans Canada Airlines and Air Canada. After Ron won the heart of the prettiest load agent in Canada, Phyllis KIMBER, they were married in Montreal in January 1946. Ron and Phyllis had a wonderful life together in Montreal and Toronto and Victoria - it was in Toronto in the 1950s that they first spoiled Hilarie and Bill McMURRAY which began a lifetime of unconditional love and support. After leading the team to introduce the 747 to the Air Canada fleet, Ron retired from Air Canada in 1975. That same year Phyllis and Ron drove across the country to their new home in Broadmead. Together, they travelled the world, visiting the then Soviet Union in the 1970s and taking two trips to China in the 1980s.
Ron was an old fashioned gentleman, always impeccably dressed and unfailingly polite - we will hold in our hearts and our memories the image of Ron's beautiful smile and his tip of the hat.
The family would like to thank the incredible staff of RP1 at the Royal Jubilee Hospital for their loving care over the last 5 weeks. For the past year Ron enjoyed his life at The Peninsula in Sidney, British Columbia - his caregivers were wonderful, in particular Ian. Thank you. And a special thanks to Chris Chilton and Anne Moon for being such good Friends to Ron.
There will be no service at Ron's request. Later this year, Ron and Phyllis will be buried together in the Kimber family plot in Lethbridge, Alberta. If you wish, the family would appreciate memorial donations to the Salvation Army or to The Mustard Seed Food Bank.
