Or we can smile because he lived.
We can close our eyes and pray that he'll come back, or we can open our eyes and see everything he has left us.
Our hearts can be empty because he is no longer with us, or be full of the love he gave us.

STANLEY, Robert Crooks, 1951 -- Died This Day
Mining executive and metallurgist born in Little Falls, N.J., on August 1, 1876
After studying mechanical engineering, he attended the Columbia School of Mines and graduated with a degree in mine engineering in 1901. The following year, he joined International Nickel in Sudbury, Ontario, and served as president from 1922 to 1949. He was the driving force behind the development of a nickel-copper alloy called monel. He also promoted commercial applications for Inco's nickel, which in the First World War had been used primarily in armour plating, a market that vanished in peacetime. In the late 1920s, he played a major role in the merger of Inco and the Mond Nickel Company. He died at Staten Island, N.Y.

Cop shot dead in Windsor
Two 18-year-olds are arrested after gunfire is exchanged in a Mac's Milk parking lot.
By Canadian Press, Sat., May 6, 2006
Windsor -- Residents here were stunned yesterday after witnessing a daylight shootout in a residential neighbourhood that ended with a veteran plainclothes police officer lying dead on a sidewalk and two teens in custody.
The victim was 37-year-old Const. John ATKINSON, a 14-year veteran of the force and a father of a six-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son.
ATKINSON was on duty when he spotted some suspicious men at a Mac's Milk convenience store and went into action, said Windsor Police Chief Glenn STANNARD.
He was struck by a bullet, but was able to return fire before the suspects ran off. Police later arrested two 18-year-old Windsor men. They have not yet been charged.
STANNARD said the community and police are outraged by the shooting, which is like nothing they'd seen before.
"Although we have had in our history three officers killed as a result of car accidents, to the best of my knowledge, this is the first officer in the history of more than 120 years of the Windsor Police Service that an officer has been murdered," he said.
One of ATKINSON's close Friends informed his wife of the shooting, which happened shortly after 2 p.m.
STANNARD, Windsor Mayor Eddie FRANCIS and other members of the police force visited the officer's family.
"What do you say?" STANNARD said about speaking with ATKINSON's wife and two young children. "You do what your heart leads you with. It's a tragic thing. You share tears and you share hugs.
"The policing community, for those who don't know, is a very close-knit community and police officers were there and they'll share their times with the family."
The shooting unfolded before many witnesses, who were shocked by what they saw.
The owner of the Mac's Milk declined to comment on the shooting, saying she was worried for her life.
A store employee identified as Emma said she saw the two men in the parking lot when suddenly she heard gunfire.
"We heard gunshots and a guy was bleeding from his mouth, and then we were told he was a policeman," she said.
Dennis ROCHON said he was sitting on his balcony in a nearby apartment building when he heard three loud shots, which he first thought was a car backfiring. He went outside to investigate and saw the victim covered in blood and lying on the sidewalk.
"There was no movement," he said. "There was blood all over the place. It looked like he got shot in the throat and the side of the chest. You could tell he was dead."
A man, who identified himself only as Terry, said after the shooting, the victim stumbled for three or four metres before collapsing.
"He tried to get up and he fell again."
Lloyd MENARD, who was in the store at the time, said onlookers couldn't believe their eyes or their ears.
"At first, a couple of people thought they were just like poppers on the ground, but no, it was actually gunfire," he said. "My truck's got blood all over it, so those kids must have shot him right there."
One local resident said people in the city will likely be shaken up as they are not used to gun violence, despite their proximity to the United States.
"This is very rare indeed for Windsor," said Patty HANDYSIDES of Windsor radio station CKLW. " Even though we are right across the river from Detroit, gun crime is low in Windsor, and certainly death by gun is very, very rare."
At least eight elementary schools and one high school in the area were initially locked down in the shooting's aftermath, keeping as many as 3,400 students indoors. A nearby day-care centre was also put under lockdown.
By 5 p.m., all students were allowed to leave, although they were told not to walk home alone or stop and play, said Supt. Steve SCHNIEDER/SNIDER/SNYDER of the Greater Essex County District school board.
Nearby residents were also advised to remain in their homes.
Ontario Premier Dalton McGUINTY released a statement last night in praise of ATKINSON and the work of all police officers.
"The loss of one of our officers is a tragedy for all of us. I don't know that there are words strong or eloquent enough to capture the courage it takes to put one's self in harm's way, in order to keep others safe," he said.

Constable shot to death in Windsor, 2 arrested
By Oliver MOORE, Page A2
An undercover police officer was slain yesterday in an exchange of gunfire outside a convenience store in Windsor, Ontario
Senior Constable John ATKINSON, a married father of two, is believed to be the first officer shot dead on duty in the history of the Windsor police force.
Two 18-year-old men were arrested after a short but intense search.
"This is a man who obviously did the right thing at the right time and he paid for it," Windsor Police Chief Glenn STANNARD said at a news conference with the mayor. "There's no question our community is outraged." The shooting occurred shortly after 2 p.m. and resulted in immediate protective measures at local schools. Students were allowed to leave about three hours later but were told to go straight home.
According to the results of the preliminary investigation, Constable ATKINSON, 37, became suspicious of a pair of young men. As he moved closer, officers said, one of these men produced a weapon and fired at him. He was hit once but managed to return fire before falling to the sidewalk, mortally wounded.
A witness told The Canadian Press that the constable stumbled for three or four metres before collapsing. "He tried to get up, and he fell again," said the man, who identified himself only as Terry.
Other witnesses: described confusion as people mistook the gunshots for firecrackers. Police and emergency crews flooded the scene and the slain officer was quickly covered with a blanket.
The two suspects fled but were arrested not far away, about 40 minutes later. They had not sustained any gunshot wounds, officers said. A firearm was recovered, though police said it was not known whether that was the weapon that killed Constable ATKINSON.
Before speaking publicly, the chief visited the constable's widow and their two children, aged 9 and 7.
"You share tears and you share hugs," he said, describing the scene at the ATKINSON home. "We put in place the supports we wished we never had to use."
Chief STANNARD -- who was joined at the family home by a close police friend of the slain constable, a minister and Mayor Eddie FRANCIS -- described Constable ATKINSON, a 14-year veteran, as a man passionate about policing.
"He loved this job," the chief said. At the evening news conference, Mr. FRANCIS reiterated the chief's outrage. "Today the entire city mourns the loss of a dedicated individual."
The shooting occurred only one day before an annual ceremony at Queen's Park commemorating police officers killed in the line of duty.

Slain officer remembered as 'true-blue cop's cop'
Veteran plain clothes detective may have broken up drug deal before being shot
By Hayley MICK with a report from Canadian Press, Page A6
Toronto -- His colleagues say Constable John ATKINSON was a "true-blue cop's cop" who was on the job "24 hours a day."
That dedication helped him infiltrate organized crime, charm hardened criminals and propel him to a spot on Ontario's elite anti-terrorism squad.
Now, as the Windsor police force mourns the loss of this 14-year veteran, the question is whether Constable ATKINSON's willingness to go the extra mile may have played a role in his death.
Police say Constable ATKINSON, 37, was on duty Friday afternoon when he was fatally shot after confronting two people outside a convenience store. The father of two died in the parking lot, only blocks from his east-end Windsor home. Two 18-year-olds have been charged with first-degree murder.
Police say Constable ATKINSON suspected a drug deal was going on, and Windsor Police Chief Glenn STANNARD said yesterday that the officer would have been "duty bound" to investigate.
Breaking up petty drug deals was not a part of the job description for an officer who worked in street clothes and sometimes undercover. He had been working for the past two years to unearth terrorists with a provincial joint task force.
Yesterday, the force's honour guard joined thousands of Ontario police in Toronto for a service honouring fallen officers.
As they ate lunch after the service at Queen's Park, his colleagues described Constable ATKINSON as a "true brother" who lived for his family and his profession.
"He was a policeman 24 hours a day," said one constable who did not want to be named.
"You say 'police,' you say 'John,' " added another.
Constable ATKINSON grew up in Windsor and married his high-school sweetheart, Shelly. They bought the house next door to his parents and had two children: Mitchell, now 9, and Nicole, who turned 7 on Saturday.
He joined his hometown police force as a cadet in 1991, and earned a reputation as a hard-working cop who was especially adept at recovering stolen vehicles.
"There's people who go 120 miles an hour and there's people who go 40 miles an hour," said Chief STANNARD. "He worked all the time."
About six years ago, Constable ATKINSON became an undercover officer. His easy-going manner had proven valuable in getting criminals to talk.
"He was really good at cultivating that information," said Sergeant Mike LAPORT, president of the Windsor Police Association. "He could pretty well talk to anybody."
He was also "strong like an ox," said another officer, who said he often worked out with Constable ATKINSON, who was about six feet tall and weighed over 200 pounds. "He was a true-blue cop's cop," he added. "If you're in [trouble], you want him there."
About two years ago, Constable ATKINSON was assigned to the province's anti-terrorism section, a unit that includes municipal, provincial and federal officers. The job meant he often worked alone.
He showed up to work most days wearing jeans.
On Friday afternoon, just after 2 p.m., police say Constable ATKINSON pulled up to a gas station and convenience store. He was in plainclothes and filling up his unmarked vehicle with gas.
Police say he noticed two men involved in what appeared to be a drug deal.
"He came across something that was potentially a criminal offence and was duty bound to take some action, and he did," Chief STANNARD said.
Constable ATKINSON flashed his police badge, police say, and shortly after he was struck by a bullet. He was able to return fire before falling to the pavement.
Chief STANNARD said he did not know whether Constable ATKINSON knew the two teens charged in his death.
"I'm not going to question or second-guess whether he should have done this, or should have done that," Chief STANNARD said.
"He took some action -- whatever that may be. We'll sort through the rest of that in the investigation."
He said the officer was comfortable working alone, as he often did.
Constable ATKINSON, the first Windsor police officer ever killed on duty, will be buried with full police honours on Thursday. A public memorial service will be held Tuesday.
Charged with first-degree murder are Nikkolas BRENNAN and Coty DEFAUSSES, both 18. Mr. BRENNAN was also charged with possession of a narcotic for the purpose of trafficking. He also faces a weapons charge.

Officer shot dead, 2 teens in custody
By Peter EDWARDS in Windsor Nicolaas VAN RIJN in Toronto with files from Scott ROBERTS, Camille ROSS and Canadian Press, Page A1
A Windsor police officer who "couldn't wait to go to work" was shot dead yesterday afternoon while coming to the aid of a harassed family operating a Mac's Milk convenience store in a residential section of the border city.
Two 18-year-old male suspects are in custody and a gun has been seized, Windsor police Insp. Greg RENAUD told a news conference last night.
Const. John ATKINSON, 37, the father of two young children, is believed to be the first officer in the more than 120-year history of the Windsor force to be killed on duty, said Windsor police Chief Glenn STANNARD, who noted three other officers have died in car accidents.
As word of the 14-year police veteran's death rippled across the border city, the shock was palpable.
"Today the entire city mourns the loss of a dedicated individual, a committed individual who put service above self," said Windsor Mayor Eddie FRANCIS.
Police said the incident, at 2: 05 p.m. in a parking lot near Seminole St. and Pillette Rd., in a residential neighbourhood about half a dozen blocks south of the Detroit River, began when ATKINSON approached two men.
According to local residents, ATKINSON, who lived in the neighbourhood, was responding to a call for help from the Middle Eastern family who operated the milk store. They'd complained of being harassed by "white kids," neighbours said; when they told ATKINSON about it he suggested they call him if it happened again.
They did, and he responded quickly to confront the two men, neighbours said, producing his badge and identification. That's when one of the two men allegedly pulled a gun and shot him.
STANNARD said ATKINSON "approached these individuals and during this time a firearm was produced and Const. ATKINSON was shot. Const. ATKINSON was struck by a bullet, but was able to return fire."
"The two suspects," STANNARD added, "were seen fleeing the area on foot after the shooting, leaving the officer lying on the sidewalk. And it is possible, when the suspects were fleeing, some items were discarded, such as clothing."
Two 18-year-old Windsor men -- uninjured -- were arrested shortly afterwards during a massive police search, and a firearm was recovered, but police won't say if the weapon was related to the shooting.
Investigators also wouldn't say how many times the officer, assigned to the provincial anti-terrorism section, was hit. But local residents said ATKINSON was hit at least twice, once in the throat and chest.
Dennis ROCHON was sitting on his balcony in a nearby apartment building when he heard three loud shots. Rushing outside, he found ATKINSON on the pavement.
"There was no movement," ROCHON said. "There was blood all over the place. It looked like he got shot in the throat and the side of the chest. You could tell he was dead."
Another man, identified only as Terry, said he saw ATKINSON struggling, stumbling three or four metres before collapsing.
"He tried to get up, and he fell again," Terry said.
Lloyd MENARD, in the store at the time, thought he was hearing things when the gunfire broke out.
"At first, a couple of people thought they were just like poppers on the ground, but no, it was actually gunfire," he said. "My truck's got blood all over it, so those kids must have shot him right there."
After the two suspects were taken into custody, Special Weapons and Tactics teams scoured the neighbourhood for a possible third participant in the shooting, but police later said there may only have been the two suspects.
ATKINSON, a senior constable who started with the force as a cadet, was known as a "good cop," STANNARD said.
The chief, FRANCIS, a chaplain and several of ATKINSON's on-the-force Friends visited the slain officer's wife, Shelley, and his children yesterday afternoon in an effort to console the family. ATKINSON's daughter Nicole turned 7 this week; his son Mitchell is 9.
During the family visit, STANNARD said, tears flowed freely.
"You do what your heart leads you with," STANNARD told reporters last night when asked about the visit.
"It's a tragic thing, and I think the best I can do is say you share tears, and you share hugs."
STANNARD said he and the Windsor police honour guard will be in Toronto, as planned, for the annual memorial ceremony of remembrance at the Ontario Police Memorial tomorrow at 10: 45 a.m. The memorial, at Grosvenor St. and Queen's Park Circle E., commemorates Ontario police officers slain on duty.
"Our honour guard and I will be attending… obviously with heavy hearts," the chief said.
