In Loving Memory of; Sean ABEL “My Guardian Angel&rdquo
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die...
You are my Guardian Angel, through song your spirit uplifts and protects me.
Love always; Lex

Reginald 'Red' HORNER, National Hockey League Hockey Player: The bad-boy captain of the prewar Toronto Maple Leafs shared the ice with such legends of defence as 'King' CLANCY and established a record for penalties that stood for 20 years
By James CHRISTIE, Friday, April 29, 2005, Page S7
The night of December 13, 1933, was a landmark night in the history of the National Hockey League. The career of Toronto Maple Leaf Irwin (Ace) BAILEY was ended with a life-threatening head injury suffered when he crashed to the ice following a hard check by Boston Bruins' Eddie SHORE.
What is not always mentioned is the fact that Mr. BAILEY was not the only man carried off the ice at Boston Garden that night. He had an avenger, a flame-haired bad boy named "Red" HORNER, the prototype of hockey's "policeman."
Red HORNER was the oldest Toronto Maple Leaf captain and oldest living member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. Red HORNER embodied Toronto Maple Leaf history. He was on the ice for the very first shift played at Maple Leaf Gardens in 1931 and was involved in ceremonies at the closing of the Gardens on February 13, 1999.
On the dangerous night in Boston Garden, Mr. BAILEY recalled in a 1985 interview with The Globe and Mail's Paul PATTON that "SHORE took my feet from under me. I wasn't facing him and when I fell, my head hit the ice and I went into convulsions.
"SHORE was standing over at the other side of the rink when Red went over and said, 'Put up your hands, I'm going to hit you.' And HORNER did. One punch was all he needed. The boys told me afterwards that they carried SHORE out feet first, just moments after they carried me out, and they needed seven stitches to sew him up."
While Ace BAILEY was still unconscious and recovering from surgery done at Boston City Hospital to relieve pressure on his brain, "My dad went to Boston and he checked into the Copley Plaza hotel because he knew that was where Conn SMYTHE (the Leaf manager) was staying. He had a.45 revolver with him and wanted to know where he could find SHORE. SMYTHE said, 'Let's go up to my room and have a chat.' SMYTHE got two of the hotel policemen to come up, and they must have slipped dad a couple of mickeys. SMYTHE put him on the train back to Toronto and Dad didn't wake up until he was back in Canada. Two weeks later, he got his gun back through the mail."
Fortunately, Red HORNER was all the avenger the Toronto Maple Leafs needed most nights during his 12-year career. Hockey feuds were serious matters and Mr. HORNER was hockey's version of the blunt instrument.
"Red" HORNER was born in a small rural community near Brantford, Ontario He was the son of a farmer. The HORNER family moved first to Ancaster, where he started school, then to Hamilton and eventually to Toronto. He was playing bantam hockey with North Toronto by his early teens, living with his half-brother who was a grocer, and his wife.
He was one of 72 players trying out for Frank SELKE's Marlboro juniors in 1926 and although young Red did not distinguish himself in that first practice, Mr. SELKE felt that he would be as patient as possible with him. The fact that Red was Mr. SELKE's grocery boy didn't hurt his chances.
Leafs founder Conn SMYTHE was a builder and well acquainted with Mr. SELKE, who was business manager of the electrical union. Mr. SELKE's autobiography recounts how Mr. SMYTHE was tiring of his Leafs being manhandled by the likes of the Montreal Maroons but couldn't pry any strong physical talents away from other National Hockey League teams.
Mr. SELKE's suggested solution was for Mr. SMYTHE to unload his vulnerable veterans and fill the lineup with robust kids from the Marlboros. Red HORNER made his National Hockey League debut on Saturday, December 22, 1928. He had already played a Friday night game with the Marlboro juniors and a Saturday afternoon match with a senior team when he was informed he'd be suiting up as a Toronto Maple Leaf that night at Arena Gardens on Mutual Street, the predecessor of Maple Leaf Gardens.
In a 2003 interview with the Internet site legendsofhockey.net, he recalled his debut: "He said, 'I'll tell ya what I'm gonna do. I'll pay you $2,500 for the balance of the season.' I thought about it and it sounded pretty good because I was making $25 a week as a clerk at the Standard Stock Exchange.
"I said, 'Well Mr. SMYTHE, I've only seen two pro games in my life before, I don't know any of your players, I haven't a car but if you'd like to pick me up and take me down tonight, I'll take you and introduce you to my mother and father.'
"He said, 'That's a deal,' and we shook hands on it. No signing or anything, just a handshake."
He was not a graceful skater but could move the puck quickly and possessed a gift for concentration under pressure. He could make a pinpoint pass while two forecheckers were zeroing in on him.
His tough, physical style of play earned him the league leadership in penalty minutes for eight of his 12 National Hockey League seasons. He set a record for penalties that lasted 20 years.
Mr. SMYTHE dispatched Mr. HORNER to a summer camp to work out and to put on weight in the summer of 1931. He was trained by Olympic pole-vaulter Ed ARCHIBALD. By the end of the summer, Mr. HORNER had gone from a soft 180 pounds to a solid 190.
In 1932, he was on a Stanley Cup winner with Toronto. For seven of his seasons, he played alongside another Toronto legend on defence, Francis Michael (King) CLANCY. Mr. HORNER played his entire career with the Maple Leafs and served as team captain from 1938 until his retirement in 1940. In 490 regular season games, he scored 42 goals and added 110 assists for 152 points. But his scoring statistics pale beside the fact he collected 1,264 penalty minutes during that time. He once collected 17 penalty minutes in the first 20-minute period of a game.
The scuffles didn't end when he retired as a player. Mr. HORNER, like Mr. CLANCY, turned to officiating and was an National Hockey League linesman for two seasons. On January 11, 1943, at Maple Leaf Gardens, he was working a game between the Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings when Detroit manager Jack ADAM/ADAMS berated him, alleging he had missed an icing call. Later in the game, Mr. HORNER lined up for a faceoff near the Detroit bench and Mr. ADAM/ADAMS reached out and shoved him, claiming he was blocking the view. Mr. HORNER swung around with an elbow that grazed his chin. Mr. ADAM/ADAMS shoved him again. Detroit player Syd ABEL took a swing at Mr. HORNER, who shoved Mr. ADAM/ADAMS hard before referee Bill CHADWICK stepped in.
Mr. HORNER went on to a business career managing North American Coal in Cleveland, Ohio, where he was the majority owner.
George Reginald (Red) HORNER was born in Lynden, Ontario, on May 28, 1909. He died in Toronto on April 27, 2005. He was 95. He was predeceased by his wife.

ABELL, Dr. Helen C., PhD
Helen Caroline ABELL died on Saturday, April 2nd, 2005, at the Markham Stouffville Hospital. Born in Medicine Hat, Alberta on January 28th, 1917, she spent most of her growing up years in Toronto. She began her lifelong interest in rural people, agriculture and nutrition as a young person at the family cottage near Kingston, Ontario. One of Canada's first rural sociologists; she graduated from MacDonald Institute (Ontario Agricultural College) in 1938 and went on to study at University of Toronto and Cornell University (New York), receiving her PhD in Rural Sociology in 1951. At Cornell she was one of the first women graduates from the doctoral program. She served, along with four of her brothers, in World War 2 when she was a member of the Canadian Women's Army Corp. Her career was a combination of research assignments for Canadian International Development Agency, F.A.O. and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and other interests, in rural parts of Jamaica, Nigeria, Columbia, Transki (South Africa), Bangledesh, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Ghana and Pakistan. From 1951 to 1961 she was the head of the Rural Sociology Research Unit, Canada Department of Agriculture. The other part of her career in Canada was teaching at the graduate level of various universities: University of Guelph, University of Waterloo and University of Saskatchewan. Her original work and papers are housed in the Dr. Helen C. Abell Archives at the University of Guelph. The University recognized her contributions in 1997 with the conferring of an honorary doctor of laws degree.
Helen's interest in people, the outdoors, world events and her "story telling" ability were her signature. A strong woman, she loved her work and the opportunity to understand and promote the experience of rural people at an important time of change for Canada and in other parts of the world.
Helen was predeceased by her parents and five brothers. She is survived by her brother, Robert (Annie) of Florida. Special aunt and friend to Helen Anne ABELL (Richard NEARY) of Kingston, Ontario and remembered by nieces and nephews in Canada and the U.S.: Tom of Chicago; Mary Ellen (Fred) of Florida; Sara Lynn (Craig) of Oregon; Susan of Port Hope, Ontario; Marion (John) of Kingston, Ontario; Richard (Rosemary) of Cornwall, Ontario; John of Rhode Island; Jim of California, and their families. Special thanks to the caring staff of the Buckingham Manor, Stouffville, where Helen lived for the last three years.
At Helen's request, cremation has taken place. A memorial service in recognition of her life will be arranged to take place at a later date. Donations in her memory may be made to the Salvation Army or another charity.
Arrangements entrusted to O'Neill Funeral Home, 6324 Main Street, Souffville, Ontario (905) 642-2855.

Helen ABELL
By Susan ABELL and Marion ABELL, Monday, June 13, 2005, Page A14
Rural sociologist, researcher, professor, daughter, sister, aunt, friend. Born January 28, 1917, in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Died April 2, of natural causes, aged 88.
Helen ABELL grew up as the only girl in the midst of five brothers. Her mother, Caroline ABELL, was pleased to finally have a girl to dress and to teach feminine ways. However, Helen always wanted to be with "the boys" and pined for jeans, not dresses. She shared the same love of fishing and being in the outdoors they all enjoyed. Some of her best times were on a lake at a cottage, fishing from a small boat. When she bought the property for her first cottage, in the late 1950s, in Prince Edward Island, she drew the design on a serviette and had a local fisherman build it for her.
All her life, she was shaped by and loyal to the lessons learned as a child of the Depression. She was fascinated by how rural people, particularly the farm family, lived in the face of major change. As a good researcher, she was always counting. Her work was who she was and it filled her life. One of her favourite stories was how she got locked in a government building in Ottawa, where she was working late at night, and having to be escorted out by the Mounties.
As a sociologist, Helen was proud to say that she was the first in Canada to study rural peoples. This led her to many countries including Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and South Africa, years before it became popular to travel rough. In telling her stories in later life, she'd insert the phrase; "I was the only woman, you know." She loved to "push the envelope" and travel to remote areas to study how the people lived. She always returned to Canada and to her parents in Stouffville, Ontario
The other part of her life that brought so much meaning to her was teaching at the university post-graduate level, particularly the University of Guelph. It gave her an opportunity to share her experiences and knowledge and to "grow" the next generations of sociologists. Her drive and story-telling ability made her a natural. Throughout the years, she kept in touch with many groups that were interested in farming and rural issues. She gave radio talks and wrote articles on farm life.
Two features of knowing Helen were her love of strong, black coffee, which she started drinking during an assignment to Colombia in the 1950s. And -- smoking (as a product of her years in the Canadian Women's Army Corps during the Second World War), but she always claimed she didn't really inhale! In her home and the cottages she owned through the years, she had many items she brought back from her travels. She wasn't interested in clothes, although she loved anything red. Her wall hangings, carved elephant table and many other original pieces meant a lot to her. When she finally retired (as her health didn't permit travelling any more), she went to the local high school to take up furniture building. Being practical, she designed a side table to hold her coffee cup and ashtray for when she spent mornings reading her Globe and Mail.
She never married and family and Friends were always an important part of her life; she'd travel to be with them whenever she could. She saved everything and it was interesting to find family letters she had kept, dating back to her childhood. For her nieces and nephews, they provide new insight into the ABELL family.
At the end of her life, the woman who had travelled and been independent was forced to rely on others for her personal care. She did so without complaint and with appreciation. Her interest in other's lives, her stories and her humour never left her. She left us on her own terms... not making a fuss, just doing what she believed was natural.
Susan and Marion are Helen's nieces.

Samuel GRANGE, Jurist (1920-2005)
Best known for heading the royal commission into the deaths of 24 babies at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, he declined to lay blame and stoically endured any criticism
By Oliver MOORE, Tuesday, August 30, 2005, Page S11
After falling quite by chance into the legal profession, Samuel GRANGE was at the centre of a series of key decisions and headed the controversial inquiry which determined that babies had been murdered at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children.
"He played an enormous role... he should be remembered because of his contribution," said Horace KREVER, another retired judge who oversaw a commission, in his case a probe of the tainted-blood scandal. "He was everything a judge should be: learned, wise, compassionate, patient and extraordinarily literate."
Judge GRANGE was on the bench at the Ontario Court of Appeal when it ruled the rape-shield law constitutional and when the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation miniseries The Valour and the Horror was ruled not to have libelled Canadian airmen. He also backed the decision by that court which allowed the custodial parent in a divorced couple to move the child far away from the former spouse.
But Judge GRANGE was most prominently in the public eye when he headed the royal commission into the deaths at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children. The probe was called after a series of deaths rocked the hospital, a leading pediatrics institution. From the summer of 1980 to the spring of 1981, the death toll on the hospital's cardiac ward was 625 per cent higher than the previous three nine-month periods.
After 191 days of testimony over three years, Judge GRANGE found that eight babies had been killed by drug overdoses and another 15 had died in suspicious circumstances. He issued his 224-page report in the first few days of 1985. He concluded that the babies had died because of overdoses of digoxin, a heart drug that many should not have been given. The babies' bodies, nine of which were exhumed for the investigation, revealed abnormally high digoxin levels.
Controversially, although Judge GRANGE recommended compensation to Susan NELLES, a nurse charged with several of the murders, he did not assign blame to anyone. He faulted no one and offered no solution to the mystery of who killed the babies.
The report angered parents of some of the babies and brought a wave of public criticism. Ms. NELLES had been released after a preliminary hearing because of lack of evidence and it appeared no one would be held responsible.
But according to his son Dougall, Judge GRANGE had long inured himself from criticism and maintained a healthy distaste for the media, in spite of initially considering a career in journalism. Later, though, he came publicly to the defence of inquiries at a time when they were being criticized as unwieldy and overly time-consuming.
"You can't run an inquiry without letting everybody have his say," he said in the mid-1990s. "You don't know what a person's going to say until he says it -- even though sometimes he says it and you're sorry you ever let him speak."
His father recognized the importance of many of the cases he heard and was keenly aware of the lasting impact of his decisions, said Dougall, a 46-year-old paralegal in Toronto. "Sometimes he didn't come to these decisions easily, he really worked, he was conscientious and would think very, very carefully about what he was doing. Regularly he would be up at three or four in the morning, going over the materials and trying to come up with a solution."
Judge GRANGE felt strongly that the practice of law had fallen into public disrepute and believed that one way to regain the people's trust would be to introduce television cameras into some courtrooms. "The image of justice is poor, I don't think we deserve that image," he said in the mid-1980s.
But he felt no compulsion to play to the public gallery. "He was of the view that you write your judgments, you write your reports, and you let them speak for themselves," said the younger Mr. GRANGE.
Many of the decisions are still with us, their importance being felt still today. The intrusive questioning of rape complainants is a thing of the past in part because of the decision written by Judge GRANGE. In the case of two adults accused of assaulting a 15-year-old girl in the basement of a school, the question of the girl's previous behaviour with men came up. But Judge GRANGE, then sitting on the Ontario Court of Appeal, made it clear that times had changed.
"Sexual reputation is no more an indicator of credibility in a woman then it is in a man," he wrote for the majority in the late summer of 1987. "It should no longer be recognized as relevant to the issue."
Two years earlier he backed another controversial Court of Appeal decision, this one written by then Madam Justice Rosalie ABELLA. Hearing the case of a divorced couple, one of whom wanted to move away with the couple's child, the three judges unanimously agreed that she could.
"The custodial parent's best interests are inextricably tied to those of the child," wrote Judge ABELLA, supported by Judge GRANGE and backed by then Mr. Justice Jean LABROSSE. In effect, they ruled that what is good for the custodial parent should be presumed to be good for the child.
Retired judge KREVER called him "an exemplary member of the profession" and said he was something approaching a poet laureate at the Court of Appeal.
"There are a lot of cases in which he wrote excellent decisions which will stand the test of time," said Judge KREVER, 76.
Dougall GRANGE said that, as a child of two journalists, his father was headed for that career when the war diverted him to Europe. Awarded the Croix de Guerre for his dangerous work as a forward artillery observer, he seems also to have caught the eye of several peers. Military law at the time allowed a serviceman accused of a crime to choose the officer he wanted to represent him. Mr. GRANGE, then a captain, had no legal training or experience but was chosen several times.
In one of the more serious cases, he defended an American who had lied his way into the war before his country became involved. When the United States entered the war he quit his unit with the intention of joining the allied U.S. forces. Caught and tried for desertion, he could have been shot. Then-Captain GRANGE successfully argued his case and the man was released, Dougall GRANGE said.
"He came back here afterwards and thought 'okay, why don't I try this. He loved the practice and he liked the people... it was his life'."
Samuel GRANGE was born on March 19, 1920, in London, Ontario He died on August 26, 2005, at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto after suffering a series of strokes. He was 85. He was predeceased in 2003 by his wife Patricia. He is survived by his son Dougall and daughter Alice.
