We give you ships and tides and men
Anchors a-weigh and wind-filled sail
We give you back the sea again
In sailor's songs and rousing tale
And inland where the dark hills rise
Between you and the salt-thick foam
You hear the surf, the sea-gulls' cries
And eastward turn your heart towards home.
After cremation, Arthur's ashes will be returned to Nova Scotia and his final resting place will be among his kin in the HARRIS family burial ground at Oakhill Cemetery, Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia.

Brampton woman, 21, dies after severe beating
By Jen GERSON, Tuesday, August 2, 2005, Page A7
A 21-year-old woman from Brampton, Ontario, died shortly after police found her in her basement apartment suffering from a severe beating Sunday afternoon, and a 26-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder.
Peel Regional Police, responding to a call from a passerby, found a naked man wandering a street. southbound along Fletchers Creek Boulevard at about 1: 15 p.m. near Bovaird Drive and McLaughlin Boulevard.
"We have no idea what his state was at the time," Constable Jennifer BRYER of Peel Regional police said.
Police arrested the man and questioned him. Within a few minutes, they were told that a woman was injured in a nearby residence.
Police found Audrey CÔTÉ suffering from severe trauma. She was taken to a local hospital where she died at about 2: 30 p.m. Sunday.
Constable BRYER said that the victim and the accused are known to one another, though it did not look like the suspect lived in the apartment with Ms. COTE. She was renting the apartment at the time.
An autopsy is expected to be performed this week.
Ryan BUCKNOR appeared in Ontario Court in Brampton yesterday to face a charge of second-degree murder.
The investigation is continuing and police don't yet know what factors led to Ms. COTE's death.
This is Peel Region's fourth homicide of the year.

Man charged in woman's fatal beating
By Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporter
A 25-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in the beating death of a Brampton woman.
Audrey COTE, 21, died in hospital on Sunday a short time after Peel police found her clinging to life in her rented basement apartment in a home on Fletcher's Creek Blvd.
Police discovered the woman, who was suffering from severe head trauma, after being led to the residence by a man who was found running naked down the street at about 1: 15 p.m. Sunday.
Police said he indicated they could find an injured woman at the residence.
Few details about the homicide are being revealed but some neighbours said yesterday the victim had been living in the home for less than a year.
One neighbour said she understood the woman was from the Montreal area and another person said she believed she had been working as a nanny in the home.
Police wouldn't confirm whether this was the case.
But most people interviewed in the neighbourhood said they had rarely spoken to the woman.
Some said they didn't know she had been living in the residence.
Although the accused knew the victim, police won't reveal their relationship but said he didn't live in the residence.
Ryan BUCKNOR of Brampton appeared briefly in a Brampton courtroom yesterday while several distraught family members stood at the back of the room.
He was remanded in custody until his next appearance tomorrow.

Valerie GORE
By Jeff BUCKSTEIN, Friday, September 16, 2005, Page A22
Wife, mother, friend, teacher, transplant recipient. Born September 26, 1947, in Toronto. Died March 8 in Toronto of complications from pulmonary fibrosis, aged 57.
Ask anyone who knew Valerie GORE and they will tell you without hesitation that one of the reasons she was universally adored was because of her selfless devotion to family, Friends, and teaching.
Born in Toronto in 1947, Valerie grew up in a strong, close-knit family with parents Peter Sr. and May BUCHANAN, and older brother Peter. Val attended York Memorial Collegiate in the city's west end, where she easily forged many Friendships -- some of which would last for decades.
She also managed to catch the eye of a Runnymede Collegiate student. Craig GORE became smitten with Val and asked her out after the two ran into each other on a couple of occasions during the summer of 1964; first at the pool where Craig was a lifeguard and then again at the drugstore where Val worked. The two were destined to enjoy a long and successful marriage.
After graduating in 1966, Valerie went into teaching -- a profession ideally suited to her stellar interpersonal skills, ever-present smile and genuine warmth. She began her career in 1967 and over the span of nearly 30 years taught at Melody Road Public School and Beaumonde Heights Junior Middle School in Toronto.
A couple of years ago, when asked about the accomplishment she was most proud of in life, Valerie said that marrying Craig in 1969, and having two beautiful daughters -- Kerry Lee in 1975 and Heather in 1977 -- topped the list.
Heather recalls how her mother always liked to organize family events, such as birthdays or Easter, as "over-the-top celebrations." Val brought the girls as teaching assistants when she taught summer school, let them wear her fancy nightgowns, and was always there for them.
Valerie was always there for her Friends, too, putting her cooking skills and baking talent to good use at numerous social events, including an annual Christmas party at her Toronto home.
In 1995, Valerie received a tough break. She was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, an often-fatal lung disease -- which, in her case, was caused by a rare, accumulated allergic reaction to having owned several pet birds throughout her life.
Val's only hope, as her health rapidly declined and she became oxygen-dependent, was a double-lung transplant. This finally came on Mother's Day in 2000. But by 2003, Valerie was again dependent on oxygen, and knew that her time was probably limited. She made the most of it and was grateful for the opportunity to see Heather graduate from law school, to visit her brother Peter and his family in Prince Edward Island, to get Maggie, the cocker spaniel puppy she'd always wanted, and, most of all, to be part of her precious daughters' move into their own condominium.
Val always had a smile and was full of life, even when in extreme pain.
In her last conversation with Kerry, Valerie acknowledged that while family and Friends would be sad at her passing, she didn't want anybody to feel sorry about the hand fate dealt her.
"Being sad is very different from being sorry," she said, ending the discussion with the words Craig, Kerry and Heather heard every day, "I love you."
And that love was reciprocated, especially as Val's illness took its devastating toll.
After Valerie died, it was expected that about 75 people would attend her funeral service. Instead, close to 300 family members, Friends and former teaching colleagues and students showed up to say good-bye. And that would have made Val very happy.
Jeff BUCKSTEIN is Valerie's friend.
