McGRAGH
--In loving memory of our dearly loved and cherished son, brother and uncle, Gordon Thomas, who was taken from us March 6, 1983.
This month comes back with deep regret
It brings back a day we will never forget.
He went away without saying good bye
But our memories of him will never die.
No one knows the grief we bear
When the family meets and he's not there.
The tears we shed will wipe away
But the ache in our hearts will always stay.
He left us so suddenly, his thoughts unknown
But he left us with memories,
We are proud to own.
Sadly missed, always loved and remembered by Mom and family.

Driver faults U-Haul in death
He believes driveshaft fell off rented truck
Passenger thrown from vehicle with broken seatbelt
By Kevin McGRAN, Transportation Reporter
The Ontario coroner's office is investigating the mechanical fitness of a U-Haul truck after the death of a passenger who was thrown from the vehicle as it flipped over.
Gordon ANNIS, 43, of Peterborough, died last Wednesday while helping his cousin, James MILNE, move from Campbellford, northwest of Belleville.
ANNIS had not been wearing a seatbelt, but MILNE, who was driving the vehicle, and a source close to the investigation told the Star that ANNIS's seatbelt didn't work.
"The police are conducting their investigation with the coroner's office," said Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Brian BLIMKIE.
The coroner will examine the truck tomorrow to determine whether any safety malfunctions contributed to ANNIS's November 30 death.
MILNE, reached last night, told the Star ANNIS's seatbelt didn't work. He said the truck's driveshaft dropped off the vehicle, causing the accident.
"The seatbelt on the passenger side did not operate," said MILNE, "When I picked the truck up first, in Havelock, I went from Havelock to Campbellford. I picked my wife up and little boy, the seatbelt didn't work then. I tried it. I took them into Peterborough, went back to Campbellford, loaded up my truck and that's when it happened."
MILNE said he couldn't return the U-Haul for another vehicle.
"It was the only truck they had," MILNE said. "I just wanted to get my stuff moved out there and get out of there. It never crossed my mind to take the truck back because I was going to try to get the seatbelt to work. It didn't."
MILNE said as he was driving, he heard a loud bang. He believes the driveshaft dropped off the truck.
"It was a bang, like a shotgun bang," said MILNE. "It caused us to veer and I lost it."
A U-Haul spokesperson told The Peterborough Examiner after the accident that the company was awaiting the results of the police investigation and a mechanical inspection of the truck, due to be done this week.
Joanne Fried, based at U-Haul's headquarters in Tucson, Arizona., said U-Haul has had safety issues in the past, but she said they were being dealt with.
"Over the past year we've had more training, more resources available to our locations," Fried told The Examiner. "We've rotated older pieces of equipment out of our rental fleet because we're purchasing new equipment."
It's the first fatality involving a U-Haul in the area since a July Toronto Star investigation revealed half of U-Haul trucks routinely failed Ontario Provincial Police roadside spot checks.
In response to that investigation, the Ontario transportation ministry conducted its own investigation of all truck rental companies, determining that U-Haul had the poorest safety record. That prompted high-level meetings among Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, Ontario Provincial Police and U-Haul executives.
In October, U-Haul promised that it would clean up its act, and begin removing older vehicles from service and more thoroughly checking vehicles before they're rented.
MILNE was on Northumberland Rd. 30 when the accident occurred.
There were three other passengers in the vehicle, including two in the rear with the furniture. None of the others were seriously hurt, said Judy ANNIS, Gordon's mother.

Sobbing pals recall their 'rose'
Kitchen volunteer fed hungry with food from own fridge
Pattern of abuse started early in victim's life, cousin says
By Jessica LEEDER, Staff Reporter with files from Dale Anne FREED
Rose McGROARTY was known for putting the needs of others -- to eat a good meal, find shelter, have a shower -- before her own. Even among close Friends, the 46-year-old rarely talked about her aches, the causes of the bruises beneath her sweater, why she spent so much time volunteering at the Parkdale Activity-Recreation Centre, or made it her home away from home.
If only she had, mournful Friends said yesterday, her fate might have been different.
"I can't help thinking that I wish I had known what you were going through," a friend wrote to McGROARTY in a letter read at a packed memorial service at the community centre. The building houses the kitchen where McGROARTY spent six days a week the last three years volunteering and making Friends -- until she disappeared last month. Her dismembered body parts have been found throughout the city.
But a family member said it would have been out of character for the hard-luck woman to tell anyone if she was a punching bag. She learned early, the cousin said yesterday, to distract herself and not dwell on what was really going on.
"I understand that she didn't have a whole lot of money in Toronto," said Kimberly CAMPBELL, a cousin who grew up with McGROARTY in London, Ontario "The catch here is that it didn't start (in Toronto)," she told the Star in a phone interview. "But Rose Marie was the type of person, no matter what anybody did to her, she would never talk about it."
A pattern of abuse in McGROARTY's life started early, when she was about 6 or 7, CAMPBELL said. She was living in London at the time, and with her mother unable to care for her -- for reasons that are unclear -- McGROARTY moved into a boarding house run by Edith SANDERS.
In 2002, SANDERS was convicted for enslaving and torturing children, including CAMPBELL, her adopted daughter, from the 1950s to the 1980s. SANDERS' victims testified at her trial that while under her care, they were beaten with hockey sticks, tortured with a cattle prod and forced to eat animal feces. SANDERS was sentenced in January 2003 to four years in prison on four counts of assault and three counts of assault causing bodily harm. She died last year while on parole.
The conviction stemmed from allegations brought by CAMPBELL and other siblings; none of the charges that resulted in conviction related to McGROARTY.
"Rose Marie didn't have a fighting chance (in life,)" CAMPBELL said, recounting their tormented childhood. "Dysfunctional leads to dysfunctional. She didn't get the education she needed, she was abused mentally and physically, and yet she went along in life and tried to accomplish and do the best that she could.
"It sounds to me that she was doing wonderfully for what she experienced in her lifetime. She was such a forgiving person."
"This was Rose's home. This was a very important place for her," said Peggy-Gail DEHAL- RAMSON, a Parkdale community advocate.
Nearly 100 people gathered at the memorial service, one of two held for McGROARTY yesterday. Leaning on canes -- and each other and wiping wet cheeks, those whom McGROARTY treated like family lamented their great loss. At times, centre general manager Victor WILLIS had to pause to console the crowd.
"There's such a disconnect between who she was and how she died," he said. "We will not let another woman be harmed in our community."
Three women who worked alongside McGROARTY in the kitchen each day, Michelle WALDRON, Jean McGRATH and Sugar WALKER -- who had a red silk rose pinned to her top -- sobbed uncontrollably during the reading of farewell letters they wrote to their friend.
"Knowing someone like you, Rosie, you really were a 'rose,'" one letter said. "A good friend. A beautiful person. A 'rose' could not be so sweet as you!"
Greg DOWE, 25, met McGROARTY through his grandmother, Marjorie, who frequently offered up her Dunn Ave. apartment for McGROARTY when she needed a reprieve.
"This is just like killing a part of my family," DOWE said. "She's the kind of person who would give up their life in order for somebody else to live. Everything about her was to make everybody else happy."
Later in the afternoon, Father Vaughan QUINN asked 20 parishioners to remember McGROARTY and her good works at a service at the Missionaries of Charity Convent, near her apartment.
WALKER said McGROARTY had been trying to mend fences with her mother and two children, in their 20s, after years of estrangement.
After the hour-long service at the Parkdale community centre, Friends stayed to trade favourite stories about McGROARTY. She was a rare volunteer who allowed the very hungry to come back for seconds -- if the food ran out, she wasn't above running home and taking from her own fridge.
Robert WISZNIOWSKI, McGROARTY's 50-year-old common-law husband, has been charged with second-degree murder.
