My Love Is Forever
Written by Stephen Paul TOLMIE
I once was blessed with love
The feeling of closeness to you.
You were my gift from God above,
To have the whole day through.
Now my life is changed-
No longer safe in my arms,
Your time had come to leave me.
My sense of worth removed
The void of closeness to you
Now fills my world completely,
I must now search my memories
For your love I surely need.
Rest now my love, my lady
As my love will never die.
I know we will be together.
We will always live forever,
Our minds will be connected through all eternity.

Figure skater dominated national competition
By Tom HAWTHORN, Saturday, January 22, 2005 - Page S7
Victoria -- Sandy McKECHNIE, who has died aged 83, won five national figure-skating championships before going off to war.
Mr. McKECHNIE was aged 17 when he claimed the Canadian junior men's title in a 1939 meet at the Toronto Skating Club.
"Displaying even rhythm in his dance steps and executing the difficult double-loop, lutz and salchows with perfect precision, Sandy gave one of the most pleasing performances witnessed on Toronto ice," wrote Bobbie ROSENFELD in the Globe and Mail.
Mr. McKECHNIE also skated on the winning fours team that year with clubmates Gillian WATSON, Ruth HALL and Donald GILCHRIST. In 1941, he won a national dance title in tenstep with Norah McCARTHY. The following year he won two more Canadian titles with Eleanor O'MEARA, claiming the waltz and pairs championships. His ice partner, who died at age 83 five years ago, became a star with the Ice Capades, with whom she was known as a "ballerina of the blades."
The pair joined others in a "South Seas" extravaganza including 500 performers and a 100-piece orchestra at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto in the winter of 1941. He unlaced his skates to join the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve, serving as a lieutenant aboard the anti-submarine corvette Algoma.
A sportsman all his life, he was later president of the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club.
James Alexander McKECHNIE was born at Toronto on August 25, 1921. He moved to Victoria in 1980, where he died at his home on January 9, leaving his wife, Sally; a daughter; and a sister. He was predeceased by a son.

Kay KRITZWISER, Journalist: (1910-2005)
Reporter who started out as a 17-year-old editor of a children's magazine became a fearless feature writer, provocative art critic and 'a kind of Welcome Lady' for The Globe and Mail, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN With files by the late Donn DOWNIE, Friday, December 9, 2005, Page S9
When most women reporters were writing about teas, weddings and the latest in hemlines, Kay KRITZWISER was reporting on immigrants' problems, starving children, battered babies and the status of the working woman. She was among the first women reporters in Canada to compete head-to-head with her male counterparts. The newspapers she worked for were better because of her verve and insight.
"The lady knows how to bat an eyelash, swivel a hip, show off an ankle or arch an eyebrow," the late Richard "Dick" DOYLE said about her in a tribute in which he described her as the "daughter of Cartier, the sister of Givenchy -- the nemesis of Levi Strauss." He went on to deconstruct her devastating brand of seduction and betrayal as an interview technique.
"A rustle of silk announces her arrival, a breathless voice begins the interview, a laugh like Bacall's punctuates the questions. Tiny gasps greet the most mundane of responses to her guileless prodding into the dark recesses of the hapless fellow on the other side of her note pad. How gently she applauds the confession, how sympathetically she receives the acknowledged weakness.... Until the interview appears in print."
Veteran Globe journalist Michael VALPY remembers meeting her in the 1960s. "Kay was an incredibly elegant, warm, sophisticated woman, a female boulevardier with a healthy soupçon of Auntie Mame. She dressed very stylishly. I recall seeing her at events in hat and gloves -- I mean, not decades ago but as a matter of course. She was a rarity in journalism, an intellectual, well-read, an engaging conversationalist. I think of her as sparkling."
None of that famous style belies her success as a fearless feature writer and an engaging and provocative art critic. Art historian David Silcox, now president of Sotheby's Canada, predated Ms. KRITZWISER as an art critic at The Globe. "She was a very, very good reporter, more than a critic, but she was always curious and she loved writing about art and artists. She was somebody who was known and respected and liked by artists, curators and collectors."
Former Globe art critic John Bentley MAYS met her in the newsroom after he was appointed art critic of The Globe in 1980. "I came upon this birdlike lady with sharp clear eyes and a great smile and she said 'I'm Kay KRITZWISER,' he said. "That meant something to me because she was the witness to a generation of Toronto and Canadian artists dominated by Harold Town and the Isaacs Gallery."
She was a great chronicler of that period, he said, as a feature writer who could do wonderful interviews. "She knew the game and the players very well."
Kathleen Alice MULLAN was born in Regina five years after Saskatchewan joined Confederation and while Sir Wilfrid Laurier was prime minister. She was one of seven children of Joseph MULLAN, an Englishman who had served in the Boer War before immigrating to Canada, and his wife Lucy.
Ms. KRITZWISER began writing as a teenager, submitting articles to The Torchbearers Magazine, a supplement designed to encourage young writers that was part of the Regina Leader-Post's Saturday edition. After taking a secretarial course, she worked for an insurance company before being appointed, at the age of 17, the editor of the Leader-Post's young people's magazine.
She became a full-time reporter, but quit in 1933 to marry Harold H. KRITZWISER, a reporter and editorial writer at the paper. He was in his early 40s when he died of a heart attack in 1946, leaving Ms. KRITZWISER with a six-year-old son, David Erik to raise.
She went back to the Leader-Post as an editorial writer and wrote K.M.K.'s column three times a week. It appeared on the editorial page and was "about anything and everything" that caught her fancy, but usually about social and current affairs, according to her son, who is now a freelance writer in Vancouver. She was hired away by The Globe and Mail as a feature writer in 1956.
The late Oakley DALGLEISH was editor of the newspaper at the time, but her real mentor was the late Dick DOYLE, who was the first managing editor of the Weekly, The Globe magazine that began publication on May 4, 1957.
In his memoirs, Hurley-Burly, Mr. DOYLE recalled assigning her to write "the human side" of a big series on immigration. She was "a kind of Welcome Lady who gave special attention to the day-by-day problems of the newcomers and their old Canadian neighbours, the resident White, Anglo-Saxon, Protestants who didn't always know what to expect of the recent arrivals," Mr. DOYLE wrote. He said her major impact came, though, with a series on child welfare, "The One Who Never Grew Up."
Ms. KRITZWISER had a distinctive style that defied the conventional rules of daily journalism. She spurned the "who, what, where, when and how" first paragraph, preferring instead a scene-setter or an anecdote that would get the reader into the story. The essential facts would still be there, but the reader was permitted to swallow them in small gulps while she told her story.
"When Shirley Ann Barnhardt, in the first few weeks of her life, went to live in one of the Sunset cabins on Highway 17, a mile west of the town of Pembroke in Renfrew County, there were still a few stubborn roses blooming among the painted jockeys and ornamental birds in the circular garden," she wrote in a classic example of her style. "The hills of the upper Ottawa Valley were a backdrop for the white frame cabin and not too far away ran the Ottawa River. It promised to be a fine place to put out a baby's pram come the next summer."
She followed up that painterly opening with a zinger of a second paragraph: "When Shirley Ann Barnhardt died on January 27 in the seventh month of her life of malnutrition, dehydration and pneumonia, an icy wind blew in a broken window of the squalid cabin and the rose bushes scraped in the wind above the snow. A dog sniffed at frozen garbage outside the door. Inside, the cold air blowing in from the river could not clear the smell."
In his analysis, Mr. DOYLE wrote that the "poignancy of the scene set the stage for a ruthless examination of society's failure to provide even the flimsiest protection for the helpless."
The subjects of many of Ms. KRITZWISER's stories are still in the headlines today. In 1959, when credit cards were a new and a largely unfamiliar phenomenon, she wrote that they would eventually replace cash. In 1961, she spotted Metro Toronto's urban sprawl and the problems it created for the commuter. She noted, as others are still noting, that commuters are wedded to their cars and will take them to work regardless of parking costs and inconvenience.
Although much of her work appeared in the old Globe magazine, she was frequently assigned to cover Royal tours when they were regarded as big news by Canadian newspapers. She was also often asked to interview visiting celebrities. The list included Edward G. Robinson, Liberace, Cary Grant, Truman Capote, Elvis Presley and Zsa Zsa Gabor. Her byline also appeared on book and movie reviews.
She was best known in the latter part of her career as an art critic, a position for which she had no formal training. When she was offered the job, after The Globe's art critic, Pearl McCARTHY, died in 1965, she said, "I don't know anything about art," according to her son. "Well, you can learn," her son remembers Mr. DOYLE retorting.
She held the post for a decade until she retired in 1975. Turning 65 didn't mean she stopped working. She went to India, China, and South America, either privately or on assignment as a travel writer, for The Globe and other outlets. As well, she wrote extensively about the arts, read widely and kept up with a wide circle of Friends, until illness finally slowed her down in her 90s.
Kay KRITZWISER was born in Regina, Saskatchewan., on February 25, 1910. She died in Toronto yesterday of cancer. She was 95. She leaves her son David and his wife. A memorial service is being planned in Toronto.

Norm always loved a party and was often the last to leave. He took great joy in helping others grow strong and reach their full potential, and valued his role as mentor to many, many people. Dearly beloved and loving soul mate, partner and husband of Barbara DATLEN- KELLY for 26 years (back to 1979;) former husband of Mary Ellen JAMIESON; father of Sheila Anne KELLY; stepfather of James DATLEN (Dave CLEGHORN) of Brampton, Stephen DATLEN (Rachel) of Brampton, and John DATLEN (Jennifer) of San Francisco; eldest son of Dr. Norman KELLY and the late Helen KELLY née McCARTHY) of Toronto; brother of Robert KELLY of Toronto; eldest nephew of many aunts and uncles, and eldest of 22 cousins.

He set a shining example of courage by performing 8 different shows while confined to a wheelchair over the last 4 years. Norm fought a crippling Parkinson's Plus disorder, Multi System Atrophy, for 7 ½ years with grace, courage and determination. Norm's quality of life was greatly enhanced by a dedicated group of 15 Friends and neighbours who conducted speech therapy sessions with him on a regular basis for over 3 years.

BROCKINGTON, Phyllis Jane (née COLEMAN)
Long-time resident of Leaside, passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 20, 2005 at the age of 92. Predeceased by her beloved husband of 63 years, Brock (Horace William), her oldest son Bob (Robert John), and her brothers Thomas Chester and Geoffrey Gardiner COLEMAN. Cherished mother of Bill (William Charles;) Linda Lee McCARTHY and Mary Anne WELSH. Dear sister of Shirley GAWLEY of Williamsville, New York and sister-in-law Vimy COLEMAN of Leaside. Mother-in-law of Yolanda, Elizabeth and John. Grandmother of Guy, Kelly, Mark, Christopher, Scott, Tim, Vanessa, and Erica. Great-grandmother of five. Fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews, and very dear Friends, Inez VALE and Noreen MacINTOSH. Born in Toronto, Phyllis spent her early years in Chapleau, Ontario and Orlando, Florida. In the 1930s, the family returned to Toronto where she met and married her life partner, Brock. Following their wedding celebration in May 1937, the couple sailed to England where they planned to start their married life. Rumours of the coming war and the urging of their families persuaded them to return to Toronto. Establishing their home in the new community of Leaside, they designed and built family homes throughout Leaside and other new Toronto subdivisions until the 1970s. Snow Birds in retirement, they wintered in Florida with neighbours and Friends. Mother of four and partner in their business, Phyllis found time to be an active member of the volunteer community, most notably the Canadian Cancer Society, Girl Guides and Boy Scouts, Home and School and, in retirement, the Inter-generational Program at Northlea Public School. Her love of life-long learning, the opera, symphony and theatre, needlecrafts and gardening were a great joy to her. She was a caring and supportive wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. She truly lived a full life. May the winds of love blow softly and whisper so you'll hear, we will always love and miss you and wish that you were here. We know how much you missed Dad. You are with him now. We wish to thank the staff at Donway Place and North York General Hospital for their loving care. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W.

Girl's gifts still sitting under tree
Two families devastated by deadly crash
Locals describe Highway 6 as 'Killer 6'
By Dana BORCEA and Meredith MacLEOD, Torstar News Services, Hamilton Spectator
Hamilton -- Emily PORTO's Christmas presents sat under the tree. Her broken-hearted parents don't know what to do with them.
The 10-year-old girl was one of four family members killed in a horrific car accident late Thursday night.
Emily's mother, Laurie, said she is overcome with grief, but grateful for the outpouring of support her family has received in the days following the tragedy.
"This reminds me what Christmas is all about," she said.
Emily's aunt, Vivian PORTO, was driving the van carrying her niece as well as two of her own children, Azzadine, 10, and Francesco, 13, back from a hockey game in Guelph when she hit a snowdrift on Highway 6 and spun out of control before being broadsided by an oncoming sport utility vehicle.
The highway is nicknamed "Killer 6" by some local residents. The 24-kilometre stretch of road from Highway 403 to the 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 snowdrifts that blow in from surrounding open fields.
A high volume of traffic was also cited as a contributing factor in the crash.
In response to Thursday night's accident, Dr. David EDEN, the regional coroner, said he is considering calling an inquest into the safety of that stretch of Highway 6.
Police agree the highway can be hazardous.
"Highway 6 can be an unforgiving highway," said Sgt. Cam WOOLLEY of the Ontario Provincial Police highway safety division.
Flamborough Councillor Margaret McCARTHY said the highway falls under the jurisdiction of the province's ministry of transportation. After hearing about the fatal crash, her office forwarded a request to the ministry to erect snow fences along the highway.
McCARTHY said residents have expressed concerns about the highway for years.
"It's a complicated piece of road," she said. "To suggest that there is an easy fix would be negligent."
Gary MISNER, a Freelton resident who travels Highway 6 every day, said the stretch where the PORTOs were killed used to be protected by a snow fence. He happened upon the accident minutes after it happened and said the area was the only snow-covered spot on Highway 6 that night. Strong winds had been blowing for hours, MISNER said.
Sudden drifts on the road, combined with a looming stoplight, make for a dangerous combination, he said.
MISNER said snow fences should be installed to prevent drifting snow from piling up on the highway.
He also said the speed limit should be reduced to 70 km/h and strictly enforced.
"There will be other big accidents along there," MISNER warned.
Emily's aunt, Lisa ULRICH, estimated that close to 200 people had come through the home to offer their condolences to both families. She expects about 1,000 people to attend visitation and funeral services early this week.
Among them will be members of Hamilton's Italian community, minor-hockey families, and family colleagues from the textile, development and hospital industries.
"They've been coming out in droves," ULRICH said on the weekend, pointing to the line of parked cars spilling out of the driveway and down the street.
"To have a quiet, empty house -- especially at this time of the year -- would have made this even harder," she said.
On Saturday, family gathered at the home of Vivian's parents, Anna and Adriano SPALLACCI, with Father Bill TRUSZ, a pastor at Saint Margaret Mary Church.
"They prayed for those that died and for those who survived," said TRUSZ. " They are deeply stricken and just taking it one hour at a time."
Visitation for Vivian, Francesco, Azzadine and Emily PORTO will be held today and tomorrow from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the Friscolanti Funeral Chapel on 43 Barton St. E., Hamilton.
The funeral for all four will be held at 10: 30 a.m. on Wednesday at Saint Margaret Mary Church at 20 Idlewood Ave., Hamilton.
