GRAY/GREY, Gord
May 29, 2006.
All we have left are memories and pictures of the past
Our hearts are sad and broken
Our happy family did not last
It's hard going on without you,
Our one and only son,
But we thank God that we had those years,
And cherish every one.
- We love you forever, Mom and Dad and family.

BLAIS- DIAMOND, Margaret (née JOHNSON)
Joyfully entered the world on October 10, 1919 and quietly left on April 12, 2008. She spent 88 years living, loving and appreciating the world around her. Born to Hugh and Myrtle JOHNSON, sister to Vera, Jean and Nonie, she spent her early years as a "tomboy" playing tennis, climbing trees, skipping school and doing a variety of water activities. Her lifelong love of swimming and the serenity of water began with her dodging ships on the Detroit River in a sailboat or swimming. Margaret was in the Air Force during World War 2 and began her medical career there working with the Doctors and then in Medical Records. In 1949 while living in Toronto she met and married Aime BLAIS, together they raised six children and lived in a variety of farms in Southern Ontario and eventually settling in Strathroy. Times were tough on the farms but with lots of love, and determination they weathered the storms and Margaret even completed a Hospital Administration program at University of Saskatchewan. She was in Public Relations, and as Assistant Executive Director for over 30 years at the Strathroy Hospital loving it, and totally believed in positive leadership and the balance of work and family life. To say Margaret was proud of her six children was an understatement. Her unconditional love and unwavering support was there for all of us throughout our lives. She spent her retirement living on Lake Huron with her second husband Bert DIAMOND and swimming in many oceans and lakes. Bert died in 1987. For the last 15 years she lived with her son Paul in Toronto and together they roamed the world. Margaret loved life, she was kind, funny, curious and keen to meet new people and enjoy new experiences. She always said "Yes, I'll go" We will miss her dearly and will hold her strong values of family and respect forever. We are her proud children. David (Joanie and Thomas), Don (Ruth, Lisa, Chris, Angela and Hannah), Paul (Chris), Michele (Cliff, Ian and Paul) Doug (Michael), Nicole (Holly,) and her special daughter Tena GRAY/GREY. Visitation will be held on Monday, April 21st from 2-3 p.m. where the Funeral Service will be held at 3 p.m. in Denning Bros. Funeral Home, Strathroy. Tea to follow. Celebrate her life by doing something you love or donating to a charity. A tree will be planted as a living memorial to Margaret.

BOYD, Richard Norman, M.D., F.R.C.S.
(June 5, 1944-March 29, 2008)
It is with overwhelming grief that the family of Doctor Richard BOYD announces his death at age 63 on Saturday, March 29, 2008 after a heart attack and a stroke. Rick took his last breath held lovingly by his family and close Friends Doctor Frank DEMARCO and Doctor Tom ELSDON. Rick deeply loved, and was loved by, his wife of nearly 40 years, Jane (JOHNSTON,) and cherished his sons David Richard and Andrew Macartney. Rick adored his beautiful 'daughters' Kristen (SKINNER) and Lindsay (GRAY/GREY.) He was predeceased by his loving parents Doctor Norman and Barbara BOYD, and father-in-law Robert 'Mac' JOHNSTON. He will be profoundly missed by his mother-in-law Olive JOHNSTON. Left to mourn are his sisters Judy MANNING, Mary HOPKINS (Ed DAVEY) and Heather MUNRO (Bob,) his aunt Dorothy SEARLE, brother and sister-in-laws Dick and Jane JOHNSTON, cousins, nieces and nephews, and a legion of Friends. He was predeceased by his loyal Bichon Frises, Bijoux and Beaumont. Doctor BOYD graduated from the University Of Western Ontario Medical School in 1968. He obtained his Specialist Fellowship in Urology from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1976, and has since then practiced Urological Surgery in Windsor. He previously served as Chief of Surgery, and was currently head of Urology, at the Windsor Regional Hospital. He was one of the founders of the prostate cancer Bracytherapy programme at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. In recent years he has also served the community as a Provincial Coroner for Essex County. Rick was a member of the Alpha Kappa Kappa medical fraternity. An athlete, Rick ran 27 marathons around the world with a personal best of 2: 48 in Chicago. He curled in the Ontario Medical Association bonspiels, and was an avid golfer and scholar of golf history. He was a member of the Donald Ross Society. He was currently the very proud President of Essex Golf and Country Club. Rick was a skilled clinician and diagnostician, and a gentle man who exhibited great kindness to his patients. He had twinkling blue eyes, a mischievous smile and a wonderfully wicked sense of humour. Rick's prize orchids are especially beautiful this spring. Our family thanks the medical community, both doctors and nurses, who supported Rick in area hospitals over the years, and especially Ruth Anne PIETTE and Staci LEMIEUX who loyally kept his office organized in spite of him. We thank the doctors and nurses at Windsor Regional and Hotel Dieu Grace Hospitals who so valiantly tried to save him: Doctor Rob WOODALL, Doctor Anthony GLANZ, Doctor Hash PATEL, Doctor Natalie MALUS and Doctor Balraj JHAWAR, who over five difficult days demonstrated extraordinary skill, as well as great compassion and love to our family. Thank you to Carol DERBYSHIRE and Steve BRENNAN from the Hospice of Windsor; Pat BEST, Paula DEEHAN- SCHMIDT and Chaplain Joyce JARDIN from Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital; Kim VAN ALLEN and Bishop Bob BENNETT from All Saints' Church; and our community for enveloping our family in love and prayers as we ran with Rick on his last marathon. Always one to put others first, and ever the healer, Rick has made four gifts of life. His two corneas will go to enhance sight, and, ironically the "perfect urologist kidneys" will give life and hope to two patients. In order to give back to our community which Rick so loved, we ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to organizations that were so a part of his life: Hospice of Windsor for care of men with prostate cancer; All Saints' Anglican Church; Windsor Regional Hospital for a Cystoscopy suite; Windsor Regional Cancer Centre for the Prostate Brachytherapy Program; and Essex Golf and Country Club for a croquet pitch and garden in his name. Visiting will be held at the Walter D. Kelly Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 1969 Wyandotte St. E. On Monday and Tuesday from 1-4 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at All Saints' Anglican Church, 330 City Hall Square on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. Cremation to follow.

Innocent shooting victim 'worked hard'
By Michele HENRY and Betsy POWELL, Crime Reporters with files by Joanna SMITH, Donovan VINCENT and Tonda MacCHARLES.
Tomorrow would have been his last day on the job.
Hou Chang MAO, the city's second innocent victim of gun violence in a week, was days away from ending his tenure in the fruit and vegetable department of Fu Yao Supermarket when he was killed by a stray bullet Thursday night. MAO was stacking oranges on a display outside the Gerrard St. E. store when he was caught in the crossfire of a gun battle waged by two warring groups.
Described as honest, the kind of man who would pick only the nicest fruit for his customers, MAO 47, had worked at the small but busy market in the heart of Chinatown east for about two years -- ever since immigrating to Canada from Fuqing, a small coastal town in China.
He quit earlier this week, a family friend said yesterday. The father of two had agreed to stay until tomorrow due to his boss's pleadings.
MAO quit because he didn't like working outside in the cold, said the friend, who stopped by the family's home last night and did not want to be named. "He was a very good person. He worked hard and was kind to everyone. It's unbelievable "
Late yesterday evening, just feet from where MAO was struck, his younger brother met with local members of the Fuqing community to discuss funeral arrangements.
Hou Tan MAO talked privately with about 10 others, in an inner room at Fu Yao. He was appealing to people from his hometown on behalf of MAO's children, Zuo Xi, 22, and Yun Yam, 18, who both immigrated to Canada in the past two years and lived with their father in a house that sources said the father recently purchased. Friends said MAO's wife lives in China.
"They are really devastated," Jack LI, president of the Fuqing Association of Canada, said of the siblings while at Fu Yao last night for the discussion. "It's a really, really big surprise to us. It's a shock."
LI said he will post a plea in Chinese newspapers calling for help for the family of Toronto's third homicide victim of 2008.
A bouquet of flowers tied to a pole outside the store, and bullet holes in cars and on buildings on the north and south sides of Gerrard, are reminders of the shooting.
People ducked for cover as the bullets flew, but MAO was struck in the torso. He staggered toward the brightly lit entrance of the store where he worked and collapsed. He died later in Saint Michael's Hospital.
While no weapons have been recovered, police said they found two types of bullet casings at the scene of the shooting, which began amid the dinnertime rush of shoppers, around 6 p.m. Officers are searching for two male witnesses: seen leaving the scene shortly after the gun battle in a silver car with a shiny round grille.
Homicide Det. Pauline GRAY/GREY said police have more than 100 hours of surveillance tape to go through and appealed for witnesses: especially the two men, who are not considered suspects -- to come forward.
It's the second such murder in Toronto in less than a week. John O'KEEFE, 42, a father of one, was shot last weekend as he walked past the Brass Rail tavern on Yonge Street, just south of Bloor St. Two men have been charged with first-degree murder.
Even though last month Brian RAYBOULD, head of Toronto's homicide squad, suggested the chances of being a homicide victim are minute if you're not engaged in a criminal lifestyle, politicians yesterday called for a handgun ban.
Mayor David Miller toured the area yesterday morning and said he plans to ask Michael Wilson, Canada's ambassador to the U.S., for his assistance and will meet Monday with Ontario's new Attorney General, Chris Bentley.
"One of the items on the agenda will be handguns and how we can work together -- the province and the city of Toronto -- to deal with this issue," Miller said yesterday. Miller and Premier Dalton McGuinty want Ottawa to ban handguns.
The federal Tories say that won't address the "real problem."
"Handguns are already extremely tightly controlled," Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day said in a written statement.
Irrespective of calls for a ban, Insp. Peter YUEN of 55 Division, which includes the Gerrard strip, said the area is peaceful, not "crime-ridden," and still a safe place to shop, live and work. "This is a very rare occurrence," he said.
