BLUGER, Marianne -- I Remember
By Allan SHIPLEY, Saturday, December 3, 2005 Page, S11
Toronto -- Allan SHIPLEY of Toronto writes about Marianne BLUGER, whose obituary appeared on November 25.
Marianne was my friend since we were philosophy students at McGill University in Montreal more than 40 years ago. I have never known another person like her. Marianne's quest for truth was not just an intellectual exercise but a life to be lived. Equally, she loved the beauty of nature and of the human soul. In poetry, she found a public way to share her passion for truth and her compassion for others. But she also shared in very personal and direct ways.
When she and her two children were living in poverty she insisted on giving her grandmother's brass candlestick to us as a wedding present. Later, she would often mark special occasions with the gift of a poem.
But the greatest gift she gave us was herself. Too ill to attend the launch of The Eternities, a collection of deeply personal poems, she asked my wife Jocelyn and me, along with Professor Margo SWISS and Reverend Roland KAWANO, to appear and read on her behalf. By entrusting these poems to us, she placed her innermost self in our hands. An early morning e-mail alerted us that the end was near. The reading of each poem felt as if it were a eulogy. Afterward, we learned she had died just three hours before we read her words.
One of her last wishes was to tell her Friends that they were the most important thing in her life. We hope she knew that for her Friends, she was as important to them as they were to her.

Cancer patient and father of two dies at 29 after months of battling eviction
By Timothy APPLEBY, Wednesday, October 5, 2005, Page A13
A 29-year-old Toronto cancer patient whose battle against eviction stirred a wide response from Globe and Mail readers this summer died Monday night in Sunnybrook hospital.
A tow-truck driver until testicular cancer struck a year ago, Tim ELLISON had been weakened by a bout of pneumonia, said his long-time friend, Jodi LUCK, who set up a trust fund for the many donations that were made. Other help came in the form of offers of accommodation.
With no savings and few resources beyond a monthly disability cheque for $959, Mr. ELLISON lived in a rundown Keele Street apartment from which his Thornhill landlady, Marsha SWITZER, had tried to evict him for failure to pay rent.
A father of two young children, Mr. ELLISON could barely walk and spent his last days on a regime of chemotherapy and morphine. Home nurses visited to bathe him, clean the intravenous apparatus attached to his chest and provide other care.
He was "overwhelmed" by the public response to a story in July outlining his plight, Ms. LUCK said yesterday.
"He would want everybody thanked. He was unbelievable right up to the end," she said. "I would never have thought a young guy like him could have faced up to something like this without whining about it. But he never did."
