PAUL, Clive Delbridge (29th November 1932-27th February 2005)
'A true gentleman' 'A great guy' 'He had such dignity' 'We'll miss his sense of humour' 'He found ways to have fun in any situation' 'A man of ideals who lived by those ideals' Those thoughts are just a small sample of what people had to say about our father when they heard he had died. A single one of those would be an epitaph to which we could aspire. But Clive was all of that...and so much more besides. Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan was his birthplace and home until he left to attend Stanford University. Although he didn't actually live there again, Clive remained a loyal Moose Jaw lad. He attended reunions in Victoria for as long as his health permitted, and often regaled his family with tales of his time growing up. Clive was a versatile athlete, playing at senior competitive levels in hockey, baseball, basketball and football. As his family grew, he became an avid swimmer and encouraged all three of his children in their competitive swimming. After attending Stanford University and the University of British Columbia (where he also played football), Clive worked for several major corporations including General Motors, Avis Renta-Car, and Eli Lilly. When he and his wife, Doreen, decided that life was too short to spend it shoveling snow in Alberta, they moved to Kelowna, British Columbia and then to Nelson, British Columbia. While in Nelson, Clive ran a successful co-operative insurance business and later became purchasing manager at Kootenay Lake District Hospital. Clive and Doreen finally completed their westward migration and settled in Victoria where they opened The Glass Store. Clive had strong political and social ideals and he wasn't shy about expressing them. He felt very strongly that the true measure of a society is the degree to which it takes responsibility for, and cares for, the weakest members of that society. An unusual combination of businessman and unrepentant 'lefty', he also took the rare step of 'putting his money where his mouth was' by taking up public service. He sat on the governing board of the St. Francis Hospital in Nelson, served as President of the New Democratic Party riding association for Nelson-Creston, and was elected as Regional Director for the Regional District of Central Kootenay. As his kids, we are so thankful for his life. We're thankful for all the 'dad things' he did for us that we didn't really appreciate at the time - like giving up his summers so we could attend swim meets, and staying late at work so he could collect us from band and basketball practice. We're thankful that he passed along his love and enthusiasm for jazz. We're thankful for the various senses he helped us develop - like our warped sense of humour, a keen sense of social justice, and a sense of family. Doreen passed away in 1989, but at the end Clive was surrounded by family and Friends who helped him to rest after he worked so hard to stay with us. Family members who will be hoisting a drink in his memory include his wife, Lucille DOXSEE, son Gordon (daughter-in-law Nicole O'SULLIVAN and granddaughters Maggie and Alex,) daughter Shannon EDWARDS (grand_sons Paul and Corbin,) and son Kevin (daughter-in-law Karin PAUL.) We will be celebrating Clive's life on the afternoon of 31st March 2005. It was his wish that any who want to make a gesture of remembrance do so by making a donation to Oxfam or to the World Wildlife Fund. If you would like to send us your memories of Clive, we would enjoy hearing from you at: rememberingclive@shaw.ca

Bob and his family travelled extensively during his career, including stints in Hong Kong, New York, Nassau, Bahamas, and London, England. His career with the Royal Bank was interrupted only by his service from 1942 to 1946 as a Flying Officer with the Royal Air Force Ferry Command during World War Two. In 1985, Bob founded his own consulting company of which he was President until 1996. Bob was also a Director of several leading corporations in Canada and abroad including Cambridge Shopping Centres Limited, Prudential Assurance of Canada, The Philadelphia Fund, Eagle Growth Fund, Continental Can Company Inc, Munich Reinsurance, Tiedemann/ Goodnow International Capital Corp, MICC Investments Limited, Commodore Computers, Dominion Bridge, R.A.

In 1969, the pioneer of cinéma vérité was among the first to use a technique that today's television viewers know as reality television
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail; Globe and Mail archives, Tuesday, September 27, 2005, Page S11
The cinematographer Richard LEITERMAN -- best known for his work in such films as Goin' Down the Road and A Married Couple -- was told by a teacher early in his career that he might have been born holding a camera.
Mr. LEITERMAN first picked up a camera because his then brother-in-law, filmmaker Allan KING, was making documentaries. Working in film seemed a lot more fun to Mr. LEITERMAN than the assortment of odd jobs -- from a forklift operator to a dish washer -- he had done for money since dropping out of university. He asked Mr. KING if he could get a job hauling gear around, but was told to learn how to use a camera instead. Later on, he referred to Mr. KING as his mentor and as someone who "took me in when I was very, very green."
As a pioneer in cinéma vérité filmmaking, Mr. LEITERMAN's work with Mr. KING created some landmark, low-budget documentaries, including A Married Couple (1969), a raw and at times disturbing look inside the strained marriage of an ordinary Toronto couple.
"He had a great relationship not only with people but with machines," said filmmaker Don SHEBIB, whose first feature film was Goin' Down the Road, a 1970 low-budget movie about Maritimers down and out in Toronto which has become a Canadian classic. "The machine was so close to him. I don't have the same relationship with the camera as he did. He played it like a violin and always did."
By the end of his career, his work had become a barometer against which the development of Canadian film Could be measured. In their 1978 book, Richard Leiterman, Alison Reid and P.M. Evanchuk wrote that his career "has been so closely involved with the mainstream of Canadian filmmaking that his work is practically illustrative of its trends, its tendency towards fiction film with a solid base in the documentary tradition."
Born near a small mining community near Timmins, Ontario, Mr. LEITERMAN was the youngest of six children. Raised in a strict Christian household, his father Douglas worked as a bookkeeper at the local mine. As a young boy, the family moved to Vancouver.
Initially, Mr. LEITERMAN studied engineering at the University of British Columbia. The move was in response to his talented and artistic older siblings, who all went into the arts and intimidated him. He soon learned that engineering wasn't for him and dropped out. He headed to Europe where he worked in restaurant kitchens, drove trucks in Germany, sailed charter yachts on the Mediterranean and served coffee in trendy cafes. It was at one such coffee shop in London where he met his future wife, Margaret. They married in 1960 after returning to Vancouver.
At the suggestion of Mr. KING, Mr. LEITERMAN enrolled in a summer course in camera technique at the University of British Columbia when he was in his early twenties. He jokingly referred to the course as "Be Your Own Film Director in Six Easy Weekends." His instructor, Stanley Fox, would later remark that Mr. LEITERMAN, while still a beginner, "held the camera as though it had been in his hands his whole life."
After taking the summer course, Mr. LEITERMAN bought a Bell and Howell 16 mm camera, shot some footage of a storm and sold it to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News in Vancouver for $35. Now a professional, he and his wife returned to London and he worked as a news stringer for various networks. Soon after he went into partnership with Mr. KING, helping form Allan King Associates, in 1962.
The documentaries Mr. LEITERMAN and Mr. KING made together took them from the Arctic Circle to the civil rights marches in Mississippi and Alabama and through war-ravaged Vietnam. In the late 1960s, he followed anthropologist Margaret Mead through New Guinea and American writer Norman Mailer at a protest march on the Pentagon.
"Richard is not as splashy or spectacular as most cameramen who work with the hand-held camera, but he's incredibly secure with what he sees and responds to. He has unique vision and great integrity," Mr. KING once said of Mr. LEITERMAN's techniques and style. "He never grabs at a subject; he doesn't push but responds to what's happening in front of the camera, with the result that he gets more respect from his subjects than anyone I know. If there was a shot I had to get, I'd give it to Richard."
At the end of the decade, Mr. LEITERMAN threw himself into another Allan KING project, A Married Couple. It was an early example of what television viewers today think of as reality television. The couple was Billy and Antoinette EDWARDS of Toronto. A camera crew visited their Rushton Road house for about 10 weeks and recorded their conversations, their ferocious arguments, and their moments of tenderness.
Mr. LEITERMAN told Billy and Antoinette: "Don't recognize us, don't give us a cup of coffee in the morning. We won't tell you when we're coming. We won't say goodbye when we leave."
He installed light brackets on the walls and put photo floodlights in the table lamps. Then he and Chris WANGLER, the soundman, showed up with their equipment. And waited for something to happen.
The film, whose obscene language created trouble with Ontario film Censors, was a hit. Clive Barnes in The New York Times called it "quite simply one of the greatest films I've ever seen."
Many thought it opened a new period in documentary film; it was shown at festivals and much discussed. In the United States, it was imitated by the producers of An American Family, which ran in the 1972-73 season and became perhaps the most popular series ever made for PBS. Mr. LEITERMAN's hand-held, swish-pan style was eventually adopted by fiction films, including Woody Allen's Husbands and Wives.
That same year, Mr. SHEBIB, then a young Toronto director asked Mr. LEITERMAN if he'd like to shoot a low-budget movie about Maritimers down on their luck in Toronto. Having agreed to be part of the three-man crew, Mr. LEITERMAN brought his documentary eye to fiction filmmaking with Goin' Down the Road. During the filming, he says he learned "a hell of a lot" about transition, priorities and collaboration.
"It was a learning experience for both of us," he told an interviewer, referring to himself and Mr. SHEBIB. "We shot it with minimal lighting, we shot it at 16. We would look around and see what there was in the script and see what the weather was like. Sometimes there was just nothing to shoot, and we'd say to the two lead actors, 'Okay guys, go out and do something. It's snowing, the sun is shining, it's a beautiful afternoon, let's do something.' So they'd go out and have a snowball fight. It's what the characters would have done. They would have said, "To hell with job hunting, we'll go for a walk in Edwards Gardens and throw snowballs at each other." Mr. LEITERMAN and Mr. SHEBIB went on to collaborate on several more features and documentaries including Rip-Off (1971) and Between Friends (1973). Along with making films, a concern with labour practices within the industry led Mr. LEITERMAN to help organize the Canadian cameramen's union. When he wasn't working, Mr. LEITERMAN loved to sail on his eight-metre boat. Every summer he would take a 10-day solo trip to B.C.'s Desolation Sound. But sailing wasn't limited to summertime. He was also known to take his boat out in the midst of a winter storm. "He was a person who lived on the edge," said his widow Margaret LEITERMAN.
Mr. LEITERMAN won a Canadian Film Award for Cinematography for his work on Joyce Wieland's The Far Shore (1975) and a Genie Award for Best Cinematography for Mr. KING's Silence of the North (1981). In 2000, he received the Kodak New Century Award for outstanding contribution to the art of cinematography, from the Canadian Society of Cinematographers. Recently, Mr. LEITERMAN shot movies for television, directed episodes of the Vancouver-shot series Cold Squad and taught cinematography at Sheridan College in Toronto. By all accounts, he had a reputation for demanding the best of his students.
"If you are going to carry on in this business, then the most important thing is to keep the faith," he liked to say. "Be passionate."
Richard LEITERMAN was born on April 7, 1935, in South Porcupine, Ontario, and died in Vancouver on July 14, 2005. He was 70.
Cause of death was complications from the rare disease amyloidosis, in which the body's organ systems accumulate deposits of abnormal proteins. He was diagnosed in December and spent the last few weeks of his life confined to a wheelchair.
He is survived by his wife Margaret, son Mark, daughter Rachel, granddaughter Clara and siblings Elaine, Phyllis, Catherine and Douglas, also a filmmaker.
His ashes were scattered in the Pacific Ocean.

Action urged in heat death
By Alejandro BUSTOS, Staff Reporter
Poverty, brutal summer heat and a lack of city regulations killed a man last week, activists say. Richard HOWELL, who lived in a boarding house in the west end, "died of heat-related" causes, the Toronto Disaster Relief Committee said yesterday.
Social advocates held a news conference to demand a coroner's inquest.
An inquest would "discover how it is possible that a man can live in government-supported housing, paid for with his government disability cheque... and still die for the price of an air conditioner," said Bob ROSE, project co-ordinator for the Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre, where HOWELL used to go.
On June 29, the day HOWELL died, humidity made the temperature feel like 37°C, according to Environment Canada.
Dr. James EDWARDS, supervisor coroner for Toronto east, told the Star last week that the death of a man on June 29 "was probably related to the heat, although we can't say that definitively at this stage in our investigation." But he said he couldn't comment on any specific death when asked about HOWELL. Activists also called on the city to introduce a bylaw that would control temperatures in residential dwellings during the summer.
Councillor Mike FELDMAN (Ward 10, York Centre) said that while this bylaw may seem like a good idea, it is not feasible to refit buildings, many of them older than 50 years, with air conditioning.
"I'm trying to be realistic," the city's deputy mayor said. "Yeah, it's a nice idea. But is it economically possible? I've got a list of 70,000 people who are just waiting for social housing," he said.

Scarborough brothers killed in hit-run
Students were walking on Waterloo street; police might treat case as homicide
By Astrid POEI and Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporters
Waterloo -- Police are considering laying homicide charges against the hit-and-run driver who killed two Scarborough brothers on an industrial street near the University of Waterloo.
Soumiyan, 19, and Chandrasegar (Chandru) NAGULASIGAMANY, 21, were pronounced dead in hospital after being run down early Friday morning; a 20-year-old Waterloo man who was walking with them has been released from hospital.
Autopsy results are expected from the coroner's office in Hamilton tomorrow. A police spokesman said those results could push investigators to treat the case as a homicide rather than an accident.
"It's very unusual," said Olaf HEINZEL, of the Waterloo Regional Police Service. "As a result of the circumstances, there's a team, including traffic and forensic officers and detectives from the homicide branch.
"It could potentially go to a homicide investigation if the information were to support it."
As police traffic experts studied the dead-end industrial street where the brothers were killed, Friends and family spoke of their enormous sense of loss and disbelief.
Their uncle, Path SITHAMPARANATHAN, said that Chandrasegar, a University of Waterloo student, felt a little homesick and invited his younger brother, who attended Centennial College in Scarborough, to visit.
"He always said that he missed his brother," SITHAMPARANATHAN said. "They were very good boys."
Abiraa BALENDRAN, 19, met Chandrasegar at the University of Waterloo Tamil Students' Association, where he was president, and said the young man will be remembered fondly by fellow students.
"He was so determined to fulfill his duties as president," she said. "We're in shock, in denial, we're all grieving."
BALENDRAN said she was struck by the love the brothers had for each other.
A makeshift memorial at their Scarborough high-rise apartment building reads, "We lost two brothers, death could not do them apart, our loss, heaven's gain."
"They were best Friends, pretty much. Chandru always looked out for his brother," she said.
"There's so much respect for him," she added. "He would never let anyone walk home alone if we were in a night class. If we were sick, he would call us up and ask if we needed medicine."
She said Chandrasegar had been a track-and-field athlete but was known by Friends as someone who was "all about community involvement."
"We are planning to raise money for their funeral, we're just doing whatever we can to help the family and helping with the funeral costs. (It) may not be a lot, but it is something."
Police said they were called to a disturbance on Dearborn Place at about 1 a.m. on Friday. HEINZEL of Waterloo Region police downplayed reports that they might have died as a result of an argument that began at the nearby Revolution Night Club on Marsland Dr.
"There is no information to specifically suggest where they were before this occurred and there are other commercial establishments nearby, so we are not pointing to one specific area," HEINZEL said.
Officers were on the scene yesterday taking measurements to prepare a model to reconstruct the hit-and-run scene.

Clifford GEORGE, 85: Elder kept his sense of humour
Native elder fought in two wars but found 'enemies' at home
A regular at hearings into cousin's death at Ipperwash park
By Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporter
Clifford GEORGE, a native elder who retained a boyish sense of humour despite pain that included being a World War 2 prisoner of war and losing his family home to the Canadian government, will be buried tomorrow.
GEORGE was a constant fixture at the Ipperwash inquiry into the shooting death of his cousin, Anthony (Dudley) GEORGE, until August, when he began traditional native and mainstream treatments for cancer. Over the past month, he also suffered two heart attacks and stroke while in hospital.
He died Friday in a Sarnia hospital at the age of 85.
Mr. Justice Sidney LINDEN, chair of the Ipperwash inquiry, praised GEORGE's humour and wisdom over the past 14 months during public hearings in the southwestern Ontario town of Forest, near the Stoney Point reserve where GEORGE was raised.
"Clifford GEORGE's good humour and positive outlook were particularly admired and appreciated," LINDEN said in a prepared statement. "He will be greatly missed by many and his death marks a sad day for all of us."
Lead commission lawyer Derry MILLAR said: "Clifford GEORGE as an elder brought great wisdom to his community and the wider community. His presence at the inquiry virtually every day was an inspiration to all participants."
The inquiry is looking into the death of his distant cousin Dudley GEORGE, 38, who was shot by an Ontario Provincial Police officer late at night on September 6, 1995. Acting Sergeant Kenneth DEANE was convicted of criminal negligence causing death.
Dudley GEORGE was one of two dozen native protestors who occupied Ipperwash Provincial Park at the end of tourist season in 1995, saying it was on a sacred burial ground. Their claims were later supported by documents released by the federal government.
Clifford GEORGE said there were several sacred burial grounds in Ipperwash Provincial Park on Lake Huron near Sarnia. He also loved to tell that he knew the secret burial site of the great native leader Tecumseh, who was killed by U.S. troops during the War of 1812 on the banks of the Thames River, about a 45-minute drive from Stoney Point.
When he testified at the Ipperwash inquiry in September 2004, Clifford GEORGE wore a veteran's blue blazer, with a chest full of war medals from World War 2 and the Korean War, and held an eagle feather, a native symbol for truth.
He told of how the return home from World War 2 was particularly rough for his older brother, Kenneth, who suffered shell shock in combat. Immediately after returning to Canada in 1945, Kenneth GEORGE skipped a party held by his military unit in Guelph to hitchhike to Stoney Point, only to see his community had been levelled for a military base.
"He looked around and found that (his former home) was a barracks, and he couldn't understand that," GEORGE said. "He slept in a ditch for the rest of the night, because he didn't know where to go."
Clifford GEORGE and his two older brothers, all of whom volunteered to fight overseas, were granted permission to visit the graveyard at the military base where their mothers and others from the community were buried.
"There was trenches dug where they were playing soldier, right in our gravesite," GEORGE said. "That is what made it bad for us.... I always say, 'I found all my enemies when I got home.'"
Clifford GEORGE said he tried to bring his English war bride, whom he met while fighting with an anti-aircraft unit in Dover, onto the Kettle Point reserve where his family had been forcibly relocated by the Canadian government in 1942.
However, he testified an official told him it wasn't right to bring a white woman onto a native reserve that would likely never get hydroelectricity or indoor plumbing.
Clifford GEORGE and his cousin Dudley were among several dozen Stoney Point natives who moved back onto the military base in 1993 and refused to leave. In the summer of 1995, the Canadian military moved out.
In an interview, Clifford GEORGE said he welcomed LINDEN's approach of putting Dudley GEORGE's death in the context of history and culture, and striving for healing as well as facts.
"I've been asked a lot of times, 'Don't you hate white people?'" he said in an interview during a break in the inquiry. "I can't hate nobody.... I learned a long time ago if you want to have Friends, you've got to be one."

Crash kills 3 kids, mother
'She wasn't supposed to go,' 10-year-old's grieving aunt says
By Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporter, Page A1
Hamilton -- Ten-year-old Emily PORTO loved to watch her cousin Francesco play hockey, and begged to watch his game on Thursday night, even though it would mean staying up a little late.
Emily's mother relented, and so Emily went to 13-year-old Francesco's elite-level game in Guelph with Francesco, his mother, Vivian PORTO, 43, and his sister, 10-year-old Azzidene.
They were all killed in a two-vehicle collision around 10: 45 p.m. Thursday along a deadly stretch of Highway 6, north of Parkside Dr.
Four people in a sport utility vehicle that collided with the PORTO minivan suffered potentially life-threatening injuries. Their identities have not been released, but they are a 40-year-old Cambridge man, who was driving, and a 38-year-old Cambridge woman and the man's 17-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter from Perth. They are all in serious condition in area hospitals.
Police blame bad weather for the collision.
"She wasn't supposed to go," Emily's aunt Lisa ULRICH said yesterday in an interview at Emily's home. "Emily got very excited about attending. She begged her mother to go. The cousins are very, very close."
Hanging behind her in the family garage was a wall of sports equipment for Emily and her family.
Their mother, Vivian, loved being a hockey mom, even though Francesco's membership on the triple-A elite level minor bantam Hamilton Junior Bulldogs meant several nights a week on the road.
When not caring for her four children -- including older boys Amadeo and Riccardo, who also play hockey -- Vivian PORTO ran three fabric stores.
"There was never any doubt that her commitment was to the children," ULRICH said. "It was hockey, hockey, hockey. She was a hockey mom."
Other family members were also devastated by the accident.
Emily's brother Gabriel, 3, still hadn't been told about her death yesterday.
Emily and Gabriel were thrilled earlier this month when they got to sit on the knee of Santa in a mall near their home, their grandmother Diana BORDONARO said.
BORDONARO stared at Emily's bicycle in disbelief, then said she loved to show pictures of Emily and her wide, distinctive smile to everyone she knew.
"She had a dimple on one cheek.... I bragged about her to everyone," her grandmother cried. "... I can't imagine this...
"I just took them to see Santa. It was wonderful."
BORDONARO said she doesn't know how to break the news to Gabriel, who's excited about Christmas.
"He never called her Emily," she said. "It was 'sister'... She became a little mother to him. She protected him."
Several people witnessed the accident near the intersection with Highway 5, including other members of the Junior Bulldogs and their parents.
Highway 6 has caught the attention of the regional coroner, Dr. David EDEN.
"We're very concerned about this and we'll look at an inquiry, but we're a long way from making that decision," EDEN said. "I travel that road and it's a very busy stretch of road."
The 24-kilometre stretch of road linking Highways 403 and 401 has been the scene of at least 20 fatal accidents since the early 1990s.
Residents and police blame a lack of barriers between the north and southbound lanes as well as the absence of snow fences to block snow drifts that blow in from surrounding open fields.
"The roads were generally good," said Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Cam WOOLLEY. " However, during the evening winds had picked up and there was blowing snow that had drifted along Highway 6. When (the victim's) van hit the snowdrift she lost control.
"She ended up in the northbound lanes sideways and into the path of the Blazer. Both vehicles were believed to be doing the speed limit of 80 km/h. So it was not survivable.
"The minivan was hit broadside and then pushed back into the guardrail."
Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs president Frank CASALE said he first heard of the accident at 8 yesterday morning and immediately set out to get grief counsellors for the team.
"I couldn't believe it," CASALE said. "We're all in shock. The team, the coaches, the executives are all grieving. He (Francesco) was a wonderful kid, a good hockey player."
Francesco's and Azzidene's dad and Vivian's husband, Sam, is a trainer on another of their teams where he has another son playing, CASALE said.
"I just don't know how he is coping with it all," CASALE said.
The funeral for all four PORTO family members will be 10: 30 a.m. Wednesday at Saint Margaret Mary Church. Funeral arrangements are being handled by the Friscolanti Funeral Chapel.

'Kind family' mourned at service
Mom, two kids and niece killed
Driving back from son's hockey game
By Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporter
Hamilton -- Mourners filled the 800 seats in Saint Margaret Mary Church on Hamilton Mountain almost an hour before yesterday's funeral began for four family members killed in an accident on their way home from a hockey game.
There were an estimated 1,450 mourners by the time the service began for Vivian PORTO, 43; two of her children, Francesco, 13, and Azzadine, 10; and her niece, Emily PORTO, 10.
Some of the people who couldn't find a seat lined the walls of the Roman Catholic church for the two-hour service. Others listened through speakers in an adjoining church meeting room. A few who couldn't find room in the church stood outside in the rain.
Inside, members of the Hamilton Junior Bulldogs team stood as an honour guard, wearing white hockey jerseys with Francesco's Number 11 stitched on the left shoulder.
"This is a tragedy," Bishop Gerard BOURGIE told the congregation. "We cannot make sense of it. All we can do is trust in God and support one another."
Father William TRUSCZ noted that hundreds of Friends of the family have visited the PORTOs since the two-car accident last Thursday night on Highway 6, north of Highway 5, as the PORTOs returned from Francesco's AAA game in Guelph.
Police blamed bad weather for the accident. Some area residents have urged snow barriers be erected along a 24-kilometre stretch of Highway 6 between Highways 401 and 403 that has claimed at least 20 lives in the past 15 years.
"Your kind presence is a silent testimony that this kind family is being held in the community's embrace," TRUSCZ said, asking mourners to remember to continue to show their love for surviving PORTO family members.
Emily PORTO's aunt, Lisa ULRICH, recalled in a eulogy the 10-year-old's gentle, one-dimpled smile. "Her inclination was to heal hurt, never to inflict it," ULRICH said.
Family friend Joe MANCINELLI told the congregation he considered Vivian PORTO to be a "supermom" who worked at a family store in the daytime and spent her evenings helping her children with schoolwork or taking them to soccer or hockey games or family functions.
"She loved family and loved everything that family stood for," MANCINELLI said. "... She was devoted to her children's activities. Never missed a game and loved every minute of it."
MANCINELLI recalled Francesco as an honours student with a special ability in math, and a love of soccer as well as hockey. Azzadine had an uncanny resemblance to her mother, both physically and in spirit, MANCINELLI said. "She was a determined young lady, with bright eyes and an angelic smile," MANCINELLI told the congregation.
Vivian PORTO and her high-school sweetheart, Sam PORTO, also had two older teenaged boys, both also members of the Junior Bulldogs organization. Sam PORTO is a manager with the Bulldogs.
Emily PORTO had a 3-year-old brother, Gabriel.
MANCINELLI, who knew Vivian PORTO for more than three decades, told the church service he was sure she could appreciate the outpouring of support. However, he said she would urge her Friends and family to go on enjoying life.
"I think that she would say, 'That's enough (grieving) now. We're all in heaven.'"
