In life we loved you all dearly
In death we do the same
It broke our hearts to lose you
You did not go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home
You left us all beautiful memories
Your love is still our guide
And though we cannot see you
You are always by our side.

We bless the years we had with them
And leave the rest to God.

Life a source of wonder
By Ian GILLESPIE, Free Press Columnist, Fri., June 13, 2008
REANEY's gift to arts will inspire generations
James REANEY once told an interviewer: "I still haven't grown up."
And maybe that was one of the great writer's gifts: An ability to look at life with the open-eyed wonderment of a child.
When I visited his London home in 1994 to talk about his adaptation of Alice Through the Looking Glass for the Stratford Festival, REANEY's conversation veered from the odd to the articulate, often in the same sentence.
At one point REANEY, who died Wednesday evening at age 81, complained that many of his university students had trouble with Lewis Carroll's text.
"They just don't understand why it's such fun to go to a place where everything is backwards," he said gleefully.
REANEY had no trouble navigating a world like that -- where time runs backwards, language loops back and forth and notions of logic need not always apply.
Despite its lyrical whimsy, REANEY's work delved deeply into notions of darkness and evil.
"Many of his ideas came from a sense of kids' play, but it was also informed by a really sharp, politically astute mind," says London-bred playwright/novelist Allan Stratton, who first worked with REANEY in the 1960s. "He was tough as nails, while at the same time being absolutely open and generous."
Poet Stan DRAGLAND, who edited a 1983 book of essays titled Approaches to James REANEY, says "there just seemed to be no lid on his imagination."
DRAGLAND recalls one incident during the early 1970s when both men were teaching at University of Western Ontario, and DRAGLAND told REANEY he'd just delivered a lesson on Jane Austen's novel, Emma.
"And (REANEY) said, 'I love the turkeys at the end of that book,' says DRAGLAND, who now lives in Saint_John's, Newfoundland. "And I thought, what turkeys? I didn't notice the turkeys."
DRAGLAND admits he never found the turkeys. But he figures they're in there, somewhere.
"But the point of the story is he would come from left field with something, and that often made you go back and think," says DRAGLAND. "He was a complete original."
In a 15-year period during the 1960s and 1970s, Keith Turnbull directed almost all of REANEY's major plays -- including the national touring production of The Donnelly Trilogy -- and says REANEY possessed "an absolutely unique and extraordinary imagination."
"He pulled his ideas from a massive and unconventional range, like Yeats and Blake and Peking opera," says Turnbull, who lives in Montreal. "He believed your limits were not geographical, they were imaginative. He said you could sit by a duck pond and have access to the whole universe."
Toronto-based director Paul THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, who guided Toronto's Theatre Passe Muraille in the 1970s, says REANEY was 15 years ahead of his time.
"The rest of us were just thinking about being Canadian playwrights, dramaturges, directors and whatever, and he was doing it," says THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. "He was a cultural dynamo."
A dynamo tempered by a sense of playful innocence, perhaps. And who left a massive legacy.
"Jamie towers over Canadian literature, and in particular, drama," says Stratton. "He's certainly the finest playwright the country has ever produced. And the Donnelly Trilogy is certainly the finest work in our dramatic canon.
"His loss can't be measured."
He was tough as nails, while at the same time being absolutely open and generous.

Mercurial bag-carrier teased greatness from unproven professionals
Canadian caddie's genius - and foibles - were chronicled in a bestselling book about the P.G.A. tour's wild side
By Robert THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
Toronto -- There was always a dichotomy to the life of Steve DUPLANTIS.
On one hand, the PGA Tour caddie from Brampton, Ontario, was known as one of the best at his trade, a man who could elicit top performances from the players whose bags he carried. He worked with several of the best and brightest on golf's premier stage for 15 years, working for players such as Jim Furyk, Rich Beem, Daniel Chopra and Tommy Armour III. Through his guidance, leadership and sheer determination, Mr. DUPLANTIS led several players to the top performances of their careers.
"He was one of the better caddies," said Mr. Armour, who used the Canadian's services when he set the tour's 72-hole scoring record in 2003. "That's why he kept getting hired. He was very confident with what he said."
On the other hand, although Mr. DUPLANTIS was all focus on the course, his life away from golf was anything but. He married his first wife, an exotic dancer, in 1995 after knowing her for just 19 days. He proposed to his second wife while still married to the first, and his predilection for a good time often led him to turn up late for tee times - then have to search for a new job.
However, his talent for elevating the play of those he worked with was undeniable, and once on the course, he could distance himself from the distractions.
"He was a throwback," said tour caddie Patrick Smith. "He raised the level of every player he worked for. He could take guys who were marginal and they would play well."
Mr. DUPLANTIS was drawn to the game of golf early in his life. As a junior member at North Halton Golf and Country Club in Georgetown, Ontario, the young golfer would often play from daybreak to dusk. When he wasn't playing, he could be found at the range, pounding ball after ball.
"He'd play 36 holes a day in weather that was below freezing and then complain that he only got in 36 before he lost feeling in his hands and toes," John MITCHELL, his mother's ex-husband, told Sports Illustrated columnist Alan Shipnuck.
His passion for the game and self-confidence led Mr. DUPLANTIS to chase a scholarship to the United States, although he wasn't a blue-chip prospect. He got a partial scholarship to Spartanburg Methodist in South Carolina, playing two years. "Maybe I wasn't as great as I wanted to be," he once said. "But I loved it."
It was in 1993, his sophomore year at Spartanburg, that Mr. DUPLANTIS was bit by the caddie bug. At the Greater Greenville Classic on the Nike Tour, he became reacquainted with Clarence Rose, a PGA Tour journeyman he had first met at the Canadian Open some years previous. Mr. Rose didn't have a regular caddie and asked Mr. DUPLANTIS whether he was interested. Mr. DUPLANTIS worked so well that Mr. Rose asked him to stay on for the summer, including caddying in a PGA Tour event that earned the rookie bag carrier $600 (U.S.).
Mr. Rose stopped playing at the end of the summer, and Mr. DUPLANTIS decided to forgo school and try to make his way as a professional caddie. In 1994, lacking a regular job, he encountered upstart PGA Tour pro Jim Furyk at the Anheuser-Busch Golf Classic. Mr. Furyk asked him to carry his bag that week and finished 10th, earning Mr. DUPLANTIS $2,000 and a regular job.
"He was a very likable person," Mr. Furyk said. "He had a way about him and a charisma."
As Mr. Furyk's star rose - including wins in 1995 and 1996 - Mr. DUPLANTIS began to develop a reputation for leading a wild life away from his day job. At a tournament in Texas, he met Vicki, a woman he would later refer to as a "titty dancer," and married her a couple of weeks later. She was pregnant soon afterward and gave birth to a daughter, Sierra, in 1996. Within a year, the couple were in the midst of a divorce and an ugly custody battle.
While his personal life was in disarray, his player became a big name on the PGA Tour. Mr. DUPLANTIS caddied for him at 1997 Ryder Cup in Spain, as well as at golf's four major tournaments.
But the distractions in his personal life began taking a toll. Mr. Furyk said his caddie was late "maybe a dozen times. Maybe two dozen. It all blends together." Despite earning huge sums, the tardiness eventually forced Mr. Furyk to fire him in 1999.
Mr. DUPLANTIS didn't stay down long. In May, only months after being fired by Mr. Furyk, he was on the bag for a former cellphone salesman turned PGA Tour pro named Rich Beem. Coming into the Kemper Open, Mr. Beem was floundering, having missed five straight cuts. But that week, with Mr. DUPLANTIS urging him on and keeping him focused, Mr. Beem won the tournament. Announcer Ken Venturi called Mr. DUPLANTIS's work that week one of best caddie performances in history.
The partnership with Mr. Beem didn't last long, however. The two parted ways before the year was finished.
"He was a hell of a caddie at times and other times he was sometimes difficult to get along with," Mr. Beem said. "That's the nature of this business."
Mr. DUPLANTIS's life, warts and all, as well as his time with Mr. Furyk and Mr. Beem, was captured in Bud, Sweat and Tees, a book by Mr. Shipnuck. Released in 2001, it became a bestseller after Mr. Beem won the 2002 PGA Championship.
Through the challenges, Mr. DUPLANTIS displayed an unflagging desire to keep working.
"He just really loved everything about the game," said Ted McIntyre, editor of Ontario Golf, a magazine to which the caddie contributed as a columnist for several years. "He could be maddening, but when he delivered, it was always worth waiting for."
He worked everything from the LPGA Tour to the PGA Tour's dreaded qualifying school, six gruelling rounds played on consecutive days. In the second stage of 2005 Q-School, he carried the bag of John Maginnes, a journeyman pro on his last legs. Even though Mr. Maginnes was struggling to find some magic in his declining game, he found Mr. DUPLANTIS's instinct for the game to be exhilarating.
"He would talk you through the shot before you hit it, visualizing it right along with you," Mr. Maginnes said. "I never discovered the origin of Stevie's insight but it was apparent in his approach to the game. He couldn't realize that although I could see the shot we discussed, execution was another matter all together. But for the first time in a long time, I was excited about playing, if only for a moment."
He spent most of 2007 caddying for rising Swedish star Daniel Chopra, including a start at the Canadian Open in Markham, Ontario, where Mr. Chopra missed the cut. Family Friends say he seemed almost not to be working the weekend last July, and spent time with his daughter and family Friends. He stayed in Toronto for a short period after the Canadian Open, playing in a fundraising tournament and demonstrating his golfing prowess by taking the prize for longest drive.
At the start of the 2008 PGA Tour year, he found himself with yet another new golfer - Eric Axley, who had appeared to be on the rise in 2006 before struggling throughout 2007. It appeared to be a good match - another golfer who might fulfill his potential with the help of a savvy caddie. They were set to play the Buick Invitational, the fourth event of the PGA Tour season, in late January, when he stepped in front of a taxi and was killed.
"Am I shocked by this? No," Mr. Armour told reporters. "I tried several times to get him some help. And I told him in 2003, 'Bud, if you don't change, you're going to die a tragic death.' "
Despite his unpredictable disposition, it was his ability to get the best from others that kept those around him hoping he'd change his ways.
"He was a real charmer," Mr. McIntyre said. "Guys like Steve don't come around very often. He always found a way to make the golfers he worked for better. It was on the course that he always shined."
Steve DUPLANTIS was born in Brampton, Ontario, on September 20, 1972. He died after being struck by a taxi in Del Mar, California., on January 23, 2008. He was 35. He leaves mother Sandra and her husband Denis CANTIN; father Steve and his wife Jackie; brother Danny, sister Amy and brother-in-law Chris NORBURY, plus grandparents Dorothy and Art BILTON.

SINCLAIR, Robert Grey
Robert (Bob) passed gently at the age of 94 on April 9, 2008, surrounded by family. He will be profoundly missed by his wife of seventy years, Irene (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON,) their daughters Diane GILDAY (David) and Marilynne SINCLAIR (Brent HOLDEN,) son Gregory SINCLAIR (Kateri LANTHIER) and six grandchildren, Sean (Jane CASKEY), Neil (Kristi SYRON), and Keith GILDAY (Regan BIGGS), and Nicholas, Julia and newborn William SINCLAIR. Robert was the proud great-grandfather of James, Ellen and Walker GILDAY. He was predeceased by his sister Renee DUNTHORNE.
Born in Toronto on July 22, 1913, Robert married Irene in 1937. In 1943, the couple moved to Montreal, where they raised their family, returning to Toronto in 1987. Robert delighted us all with his passion for jazz and swing music - he was a clarinet and saxophone player, and performed in Toronto swing bands by night in the 1930s, while completing Chartered Accountant accreditation by day. He enjoyed a successful career as chief financial officer for a major, Quebec-based construction company. In later years, he and Irene took great pleasure in their cottage on Lake Champlain in upstate New York, hosting innumerable joyful family gatherings. His sense of humour, unshakeable optimism at lowering his golf score 'next time,' and his talent for improvising vivid bedtime stories are indelible memories. We will always cherish the legacy of Robert's gracious, gentle and deeply considerate nature.
The family wishes to acknowledge the thoughtful care and diligence of the staff of the Wellesley Central Place, Robert's home for the last two years of his life. If desired, donations may be made to Wellesley Central Place, 160 Wellesley Street East, Toronto, M4A 1J3.
A family service will be held on Saturday, April 12. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymiles.com.

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Margaret Anne (née HORNE)
After a brief, but valiant fight, Margie succumbed to the devastating effects of cancer on May 11, 2008 at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto.
The family is deeply grateful to all the oncology, clinical research and palliative care teams for the compassionate and thoughtful care Margie received while at Sunnybrook.
Margie is survived by her beloved husband Peter, her sons David (Joanne DE VISSER) and Ian, and her cherished grandchildren Erin and Callum THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
Born in Montreal, Margie was the elder daughter of the late Marjorie Frances HORNE (née SMITH) and the late David Ross HORNE, and leaves her sister Janet HAWKE (Earl) of Pointe Claire and her many nieces and nephews.
Margie's love of her family, her passion for sport and her commitment to her community, like her beloved Orford Lake, ran deep. An avid and accomplished athlete, Margie was always on-the-go whether it was over to the tennis or badminton courts in Leaside, on the ski hills of the Eastern Townships and Jay Peak, or in recent years, chasing a little white ball all over Ontario and Quebec. Slow was not in Margie's vocabulary, and her passion for action burns brightly in her children and grandchildren.
Margie was also a very active volunteer in her Leaside community. Recently at her bedside, she was honoured for her 35 years as a volunteer at the Bloorview Kids Rehab centre. She also canvassed extensively for worthy causes such as the Salvation Army and Canadian Cancer Society. Margie could be counted on to support her sons' and grandchildren's school functions, as well as various neighbourhood events. For many of these functions, Margie could always depend on her extended circle of Friends to lend a hand in these endeavours. Over the years, her Friends really became more like family.
The family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers, Margie's memory will be honoured through Tribute donations to the Bloorview Kids Foundation, 150 Kilgour Road, Toronto, Ontario M4G 1R8 or www.bloorview.ca.
Cremation has taken place. A memorial gathering for family and Friends will be held on May 20, 2008 at 11 a.m. at Leaside United Church, followed by reception at the Church.
