We thought about you with love today
But that is nothing new.
We thought about your yesterday
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence
We often speak your name,
All we have are memories
And your picture in a frame.
The special years will not return
When we were all together,
But with the love within our hearts
You will walk with us forever.

We miss you darling.

Joe GRIGAS: a 'natural soldier'
'International Joe' had a love of travel, a love of action and the respect of his Friends.
By Jael WONG, and Peter GEIGEN- MILLER, Free Press Reporter
Before he died, Joseph (International Joe) GRIGAS had his favourite dish -- sardines. The decorated war veteran developed a liking for the fish more than 60 years ago after he was taken prisoner during the Spanish Civil War.
He and his fellow prisoners -- 150 Americans in all -- were given nothing to eat for 13 months but sardines and beans.
"Joe was a survivor, so Joe learned to like sardines and beans and he ate them with relish. For the rest of his life, sardines and beans were his favourite dishes," said retired Capt. Robert WALSH.
He met GRIGAS two years ago through the Royal Canadian Regiment Association.
GRIGAS -- dubbed International Joe because he had been to many countries -- died March 8 at Parkwood Hospital in London at age An American, he fought in the Second World War as part of the London-based Royal Canadian Regiment.
He was awarded a Distinguished Conduct Medal -- one level below the Victoria Cross -- for leading a group of soldiers in capturing two enemy machine-gun nests in Sicily in 1943.
But no one at the Royal Canadian Regiment knew what happened to GRIGAS for 58 years after the war and it was thought he was dead. In fact, there's a gold brick at the Royal Canadian Regiment Museum in London in his memory, said Capt. Duncan McMILLAN.
So McMILLAN was intrigued when he learned GRIGAS was in a veterans' shelter in the United States and wanted to come back to Canada.
McMILLAN and two veterans went to see GRIGAS on Veterans' Day in 2000 and confirmed his identity. The Royal Canadian Regiment arranged to have GRIGAS moved to Parkwood Hospital in June 2003, where he lived for the past two years.
A native of Worcester, Massachusetts., with Lithuanian roots, GRIGAS was "a natural soldier at heart," said WALSH, going wherever the action was.
"He liked to travel a lot and he liked adventure and when he didn't have that, he didn't have much of a life."
Tara O'CONNOR, who befriended GRIGAS at the Worcester veterans shelter in 1994, said he lived a vagabond existence, spending most of the year "in the weeds," a term explained as "anywhere you lay your head at night."
Once age finally caught up with GRIGAS, O'CONNOR helped him find an apartment in a complex for the elderly.
It was not an easy adjustment.
"He wouldn't sleep in his new bed, telling me it was too civilized," said O'CONNOR. "And on more than one occasion, I found him cooking a can of beans directly on the electric stove top."
After his release from the Spanish prison camp in 1939, he returned to the U.S., but didn't stay long. In 1940, he went to Montreal to enlist in the Canadian Army because the U.S. was not yet involved in the Second World War. He joined Canadian troops in England.
He served until he was injured in 1944 and returned to the U.S. For the next 50 years, he worked at odd jobs.
GRIGAS never married and didn't make Friends easily.
"But once he accepted you as a friend, he was a very good friend," said WALSH.
McMILLAN agrees, noting he has heard praises for GRIGAS's character from veterans of the Spanish Civil War.
"When he was held in captivity by the Nationalists, by the Fascists, he was regarded as someone who was trustworthy," said McMILLAN. "You didn't have to watch your back with him."

Bruce MacMILLAN
By Andy LIPCHAK, Thursday, January 6, 2005 - Page A20
Educator, founder of Canada FIRST. Born November 6, 1945, in Toronto. Died September 8, 2004, in an accident, near Oshawa, aged 58.
I met Bruce MacMILLAN in 1972 when I first applied for a job in the Ontario government. Bruce was the personnel officer for the competition. He phoned me after the interview to tell me that, although I didn't get the job, he wanted to help me find another position. I was stunned by this interest and support from someone I had barely met. Bruce was true to his word, and so began my own career and my 32-year Friendship with an extraordinary person.
Bruce left the government soon after I entered. He was restless and wanted to do something more entrepreneurial. This urge, no doubt, came from his father who founded what was probably Toronto's first health food store in 1939. Bruce demonstrated an enterprising spirit at an early age. As a small boy, he started his own lending library, issuing cards to neighbourhood children and keeping a record of borrowed books in a recipe box. The cards were free and there was no overdue charge.
Later in life, Bruce roped me and many other Friends into other good causes. One of these was Canada FIRST, which he founded in 1993. Canada FIRST encouraged Canadian youth to explore careers in math, science and technology by staging an annual national robotics competition for high-school teams. The students designed and built the robots that each year had to play a different sport such as hockey, curling and basketball.
Over its 10 years, more than 11,000 students, teachers, engineering mentors and volunteers participated. Many students have gone onto careers in high-tech companies because of the excitement and inspiration of Canada FIRST. Bruce was particularly proud that a growing number of them were young women. He and his wife, Janice, were always there to help and encourage the students. He was presented with the Outstanding Educator Award in 2000 by the 20,000-member Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists.
Bruce raised more than $2-million for Canada FIRST, but funding the program was always a struggle. He mortgaged his house and often put up his own money to pay the bills. He supplemented his income by chairing federal tribunals in both English and French to settle unemployment insurance disputes.
Bruce also placed Canada first in other ways. He was fascinated by politics and was a frequent and perceptive letter-to-the-editor writer on political issues. During the referendum of 1995, he started his own campaign to keep Quebec within Canada. He placed an ad in The Globe and Mail asking Canadians to join him. He presented the many letters and e-mails he received to Quebec politicians before the referendum, to demonstrate the Friendship of other Canadians. A gifted speaker, Bruce also appeared at unity rallies and town hall meetings. Along with 11 other "ordinary" Canadians, he participated in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation program 72 Hours to Remake Canada on the future of Confederation.
Bruce believed that Canada didn't honour its heroes enough. He became close Friends with James FLOYD, a patron of Canada FIRST. As head of design and engineering for Avro Canada, Jim played a central role in the development of some of the greatest planes in Canadian aviation, including the Avro Arrow. Bruce established a robotics design award in his name and raised money for the Canada FIRST Jim Floyd Scholarship at the new University of Ontario Institute of Technology. After Bruce died, Jim asked that the scholarship be re-dedicated to his friend.
Bruce's life was defined by his energy and generosity, his love for his family and country, and the pride he took in his many Friends and the young people he helped.
Andy is Bruce's friend.

HINDS, Sarah " Sadie"
On Friday, January 7th, 2005, Sarah HINDS, known as Sadie to her Friends and Aunt Sally to the many children of her acquaintance, passed away peacefully at Toronto Grace Hospital. Sadie was predeceased by her parents and sister, Hannah. She is survived by her sister Jean (John) HAY of Winnipeg, nephews Ron (Adell) and William HAY, and niece Ruth MacMILLAN. Also left to mourn her passing are her grand-nephews Graeme, Andrew, and Alan, the Scott family, and Friends from Dufferin Avenue and Yorkminster Park Baptist churches. Throughout her long and active life, Sadie loved sports, travel, and being a proud Torontonian. She would passionately defend Toronto's sports teams, subway, and snow removal efforts. Sadie's love of travel was sparked in the forties when she worked in Washington, D.C. with the British Air Command and spoke fondly of her many exciting and memorable moments around Dupont Circle. Travels to Egypt, Jerusalem, Hawaii and many points in between provided her with many stories to entertain family, Friends and the children in her Sunday school classes. A loyal employee of Imperial Oil Ltd., she taught many children how to spell their first word E-S-S-O even after her retirement. Services will be held at Yorkminster Park Baptist Church, 1585 Yonge Street (at Heath), on Tuesday, January 11th at 2 p.m. with visiting one hour prior. If desired, donations may be made to the charity of one's choice.

McDONOUGH, Ivan Patrick
Passed away Saturday, February 5, in his 47th year surrounded by his family and dearest Friends. His remarkable dignity in the face of the cancer that took his life taught us all the meaning of true courage. Ivan was much loved for his gentle and generous ways. His job as a Canadian National Railway engineer and his passion for curling kept him in Northern Ontario for most of his life, but did not completely tame his love of exotic travel. His final gift to his siblings, Peggy, Mary, Robert and Jane, was to remind them of their deep commitment and fierce loyalty to each other. His nephews, Joseph and William (McDONOUGH) and his nieces, Kielly (McDONOUGH) and Sinead (WALKER,) will remember their uncle 'Brutie' as 'the one who loved to play with us' - and they will always love him. Our very special thanks to Dr. Geoff DAVIS and the wonderful staff of St. Joseph's Hospice. Our heart-felt thanks, also, to Friends Don and Pam SMITH; Robert and Dana MacMILLAN who were with Ivan constantly and provided much support to all of us. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations in Ivan's name be made to St. Joseph's Foundation of Thunder Bay, 63 Carrie Street, Thunder Bay Ontario P7A 4J2.

Toronto -- Karl RENNER never meant to come to Canada. He was sent here at the start of war as an internee, an "enemy alien" kept behind barbed wire in one of several camps for Germans and Austrians, many of them Jews, who were living in England when the Second World War broke out in 1939.
Although not a vengeful man, Mr. RENNER did get back at the Nazis. He later helped to create Canadian war propaganda, German-language radio broadcasts aimed at sowing doubts in the German population, and stayed on for most of 65 years.
The Nazi race laws were one of the reasons Karl RENNER and part of his family fled to England. The other was that they couldn't abide living under Nazi rule. Although his father had been a practising Protestant, the Nazis classified him as Jewish. "As far as the Nazis were concerned, he was Jewish," said Frances ASHLEY, Mr. RENNER's sister. The classification applied to his son, too.
In May, 1940, the British didn't have time to decide who was a threat and who wasn't. They put them all in internment camps, such as on the Isle of Man, and then shipped them to Canada. "The British panicked," said broadcaster and writer Eric KOCH who went to England from Germany in the mid-1930s. "We were interned by the British and sent to Canada."
Both men spent about two years in "enemy alien" camps. Later, Mr. RENNER would joke that although they were given the same rations as men in the Canadian Army, they ate better. The chef from the Ritz in London was among the detainees at his camp at Farnham in Quebec's Eastern Townships.
The internees arrived in May, 1940, and settled down to life behind the wire. Soon, however, Ottawa questioned whether they should be treated as prisoners of war and in mid-1941 reclassified them as refugees. The government also realized they could be useful. Some, like Mr. RENNER, were given a chance to work.
He spent a short time at the spy school at Camp X outside Toronto where he polished his propaganda skills. From 1943 on, Mr. RENNER and others wrote and broadcast propaganda aimed at the German population in a unit with the ominous name of the Psychological Warfare Committee. The Canadian Censorship Board also asked Mr. RENNER and many others to translate letters to and from some of the 32,000 German prisoners of war held in camps in Canada. What they gleaned was often used to advantage in their radio broadcasts. The service began transmission during Christmas, "What distinguished the German-language material was that it was prepared by very bright persons who understood German, could empathize with the German population as well as the prisoners," wrote Arthur SIEGEL in his History of Radio Canada International. "Karl RENNER, the Censorship's Board's contributor to psychological warfare, had himself been an internee when he first arrived in this country, although he was a refugee from the Nazis."
Even 10 years after the war, Canadian officials glossed over the treatment given to Germans and Austrians who had fled the Nazis. "A native of Vienna, Karl came to Canada in 1940 and worked for a time with the National War Services in Ottawa," read the announcement when Mr. RENNER was named a correspondent for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation International Service, implying he arrived as a happy immigrant.
Karl RENNER was a man of polished manners and a sharp wit, a product of a privileged childhood in Vienna and a direct connection to the culture of central Europe. In Canada, where he lived for most of the past 65 years, he was always the life of the party.
He loved his connection to European socialist aristocracy. "We don't have to work, we're socialists," was a favourite throwaway line. And he had a string of them.
"He had beautiful manners, spoke several languages and was a beautiful dancer," recalled Joan IRWIN, a retired journalist who knew him in Ottawa and Montreal. "He was very aware of his family background. He lived two-thirds in the present and one-third in the past."
Karl RENNER's socialist connection came through his maternal grandfather, Karl RENNER, the first Chancellor of the Republic of Austria. He was born Karl RENNER- DEUTSCH (his father, Hans DEUTSCH, had hyphenated the two names) in Vienna in 1917. The year of his birth shaped his life. The Austro Hungarian Empire was at war with Britain, Canada and the rest of the Empire, France and Italy and soon the United States. When it ended, so did the Empire that stretched from parts of Poland in the north to Trieste and the Adriatic in the south, covering 11 ethnic groups. Vienna went from being the centre of a polyglot empire of 50 million people to being the capital of a poor man's Switzerland with just three million people.
Karl RENNER, grandfather of the man who has just died in Ottawa, was the son of a Moravian peasant and a prominent socialist politician, first elected to Parliament in 1907. In her book, Paris 1919, University of Toronto historian Margaret MacMILLAN details how Karl RENNER, who was leader of a peace delegation at Versailles, used his charm to save chunks of land for the new Austria. "Karl RENNER, a cheerful, portly man, fond of good food and drink, card games and dancing," was how Ms. MacMILLAN described the Austrian chancellor.
By all accounts, it also described his grand_son, Karl RENNER, who had long since dropped both the hyphen and his father's name. Big-picture politics continued to shape young Karl RENNER's life. When that other Austrian, Adolf HITLER, took over his native country in 1938, young Karl RENNER fled to England. His grandfather remained in Vienna under a kind of house arrest throughout the war and re-surfaced in 1945 to help Austria maintain its delicate balance between the Soviet Union and the West.
In England, the grand_son of the old Austrian Chancellor was a social hit. His dancing skills made him a favourite at balls his Austrian airs added a cosmopolitan sparkle, helped out by anti-Nazi views.
After his internment and then freedom in Canada, Mr. RENNER returned to London and worked for an oil company, travelling across Europe. In 1948-1950 he worked for the International Refuge Organization in Italy. During his time in Europe he maintained his Canadian connection, making freelance radio reports to the International Service.
In the mid 1960s, he returned to Montreal to serve as public-relations officer for the service. By then, the Cold War was at its height and much of the service was broadcasting to the Soviet Union.
Mr. RENNER's ambition was to become head of the department but worried his connection to a famous socialist family might have done in him. "Socialism and communism were seen as closely related during the Cold War," said his wife, Juliet HARRISON. Some of his Friends thought he was thwarted, in part by his own louche image.
"He loved to give the appearance of never working very hard," said Mr. KOCH. His old friend Joan IRWIN remembered that Al Johnson, the Saskatchewan-born president of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, was not fond of the smooth Karl RENNER.
"Al Johnson thought Karl was frivolous," said Ms. IRWIN. And, in many ways, he was. Years of diplomatic parties gave him a weakness for drink. One of his affectations was to carry a silver flask filled with vodka. Eventually, one by one, he gave up his vices.
Some time in the mid-1970s, Karl RENNER moved to Ottawa. He loved it there. The Austrian embassy treated him as a near deity and he was invited to many receptions. Recently, the current ambassador paid him a visit.
He visited Austria often, staying with his mother at the family home near Vienna. When his mother died, the house was dedicated to his grandfather and made into the Renner Museum.
Karl RENNER was born in Vienna on February 7, 1917. He died in Ottawa on January 26, 2005. He was 87.
He is survived by his wife and by a sister who lives in California.
He asked that some of his ashes be buried beside his parents in Austria, and the rest spread at Lake Memphramagog in Quebec's Eastern Townships.

Muriel Gidley STAFFORD
By William WRIGHT, Friday, March 4, 2005 - Page A18
Musician, horticulturalist. Born April 1, 1906, in Leamington, Ontario. Died December 30, 2004, of a stroke, aged 98.
Muriel GIDLEY grew up the daughter of Leamington's postmaster and first water and gas commissioner. Beginning piano lessons at age 7, she finished her Associateship of the Toronto Conservatory of Music in piano in 1925. She also studied organ and, at age 15, was engaged as organist of the Anglican Church.
In 1925, she came to Toronto to study at the Conservatory and live in the old residence on Orde Street. To economize, she moved to an elegant mansion on Sherbourne St. that provided good accommodation at minimal cost for young working women in the city.
She studied organ with G.D. ATKINSON at Sherbourne Street United Church, piano with Ernest SEITZ, and theory with Ernest MacMILLAN, who became a great friend and supporter. Early in her studies, she learned the importance of trusting her own judgment and this formed the core of her authoritative musicianship. When MacMILLAN became principal of the Conservatory, Muriel went to Healey WILLAN for theoretical work. In 1926, she won highest marks (90 per cent) and a gold medal for her A.T.C.M. exam in organ.
About this time, a new congregation -- youthful, intellectual, and artistic -- was being formed as a splinter from Jarvis Street Baptist Church. In 1927, Muriel was invited to take charge both of the organ and choir in this new church "on approval" -- an approval that lasted nearly 32 years. Soon her choir was famous in the city for its fine singing, winning Kiwanis Festival prizes. She enjoyed playing colourful works, always asking herself before starting to master a piece, "Is this piece worth while spending my time learning?"
In winter, Park Road Church was unheated. Muriel stitched a canvas roof and walls for a frame fitted over the organ console. She placed an electric heater in the "tent" and continued practising and teaching through winter.
When Casavant FRÈRES introduced the organ series at Eaton Auditorium, she was invited to perform several times, along with artists of international reputation.
In 1927, she joined the Canadian College of Organists, and in 1948 she became Chair of the Toronto Centre (the first woman to do so) and had an all-male committee. She remarked, "I soon learned that I had to think things through on my own, and make up a definite plan and go to the meetings prepared. If I left it up to the men, they would simply sit around and talk, and at the end of the evening, nothing was accomplished!" She was soon involved in the National Council and became national president in 1957, thus being the first woman to hold such an honour in either Canada or in the sister organization in the United States.
She retired from duties in Park Road Baptist in 1959; as she admitted, "I wanted to get out while I was on top; I didn't want to fade away." She didn't. She remained active in the Women's Musical Club of Toronto and in the Heliconian Club, encouraging women making a career in music.
She and her husband built a magnificent garden around their home, winning many prizes for her roses. She said, "Planning a garden is like planning an organ program; you have to have the whole thing in your head before you start putting it down on paper."
Her honest and direct comments were famous. She recently said to a competition winner, "Well, what you did with the piece was interesting, but that's not the way I would have done it!"
She was given honours by the various organizations in which she was active and was respected and indeed loved by the many musicians in the city who knew her.
William WRIGHT, Director of Music of Deer Park United, is a friend of Muriel STAFFORD.

MacMILLAN, Viola, 1993 -- Died This Day
Tuesday, August 30, 2005, Page S11
Miner and prospector born Viola HUGGARD on April 21, 1903, in Windermere, Ontario
After attending high school, she got a job as a stenographer in a local law office. There, in 1923, she met George MacMILLAN and together they ventured into prospecting. She never looked back on city life and staked her claim in the Ontario gold rush of the 1930s. At the time, there were few women miners but she stood firm and emerged as a leader to transform the Prospectors and Developers Association from a small group of less than 100 to an organization of more than 4,000. She served as president for 20 years. In the 1960s, she became a successful Bay Street promoter. In 1964, she ran a so-called wash-trading operation (which creates the appearance of trading activity through fictitious accounts) in shares of Consolidated Golden Arrow, which she and her husband owned. The episode led to a royal commission inquiry and became known as the Windfall Scandal. In 1967, she was convicted of fraudulent manipulation of stock exchange transactions. In 1978, she was granted a full pardon and was later made a member of the Order of Canada.

McDONOUGH, Ivan Patrick
Passed away Saturday, February 5, 2005, in his 47th year, surrounded by his family and dearest Friends. His remarkable dignity in the face of the cancer that took his life taught us all the meaning of true courage. Ivan was much loved for his gentle and generous ways. His job as a Canadian National Railway engineer and his passion for curling kept him in Northern Ontario for most of his life, but did not completely tame his love of exotic travel. His final gift to his siblings, Peggy, Mary, Robert and Jane, was to remind them of their deep commitment and fierce loyalty to each other. His nephews, Joseph and William (McDONOUGH) and his nieces, Kielly (McDONOUGH) and Sinead (WALKER,) will remember their Uncle "Brutie" as "the one who loved to play with us" - and they will always love him. Our very special thanks to Dr. Geoff DAVIS and the wonderful staff of St. Joseph's Hospice. Our heart-felt thanks, also, to Friends Don and Pam SMITH; Robert and Dana MacMILLAN who were with Ivan constantly and provided much support to all of us. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations in Ivan's name be made to St. Joseph's Foundation of Thunder Bay, 63 Carrie Street, Thunder Bay, Ontario P7A 4J2.
