McGRAGH--In memory of William Malcom McGRAGH 1929-1998 and Gordon Thomas McGRAGH 1957-1983.
They are gone but not forgotten
And as dawns another year
In our lonely hours of thinking
Thoughts of them are always near
Days of sadness will come o'er us
Many think the wound is healed
But they little know the sorrow
That lies in the heart concealed.
Remembered and loved always, the Family.

It's been a year since you were called, To go. The tears I've wept, the hole that's left, You know. The days go on, you're always in, My heart, My selfishness did not want us, To part. But life goes on, I'll have to learn, To hold, Onto your love that shelters out, The cold. I know someday we'll meet again, I pray, So until then, you know, I'll stay. Your sister.

McGRATH, David
Teacher, lover, foster parent. Born July 30, 1938, in Sarnia, Ontario Died October 25, 2007, in Toronto of a heart attack, aged 69.
By Jo NAZAR and Paul HANSEN, Page L8
The second of three sons, David spent his youth in Sarnia.
He earned his teaching degree at the University of Western Ontario, then travelled and taught abroad, including at Eton College.
David returned to Canada with his partner, David STURGESS, whom he had met at a private school in England where they were both teaching. Yes, they were referred to as "The Davids."
While teaching elementary school in Toronto, David brought his ailing mother to their home to care for her until her death. When his dad arrived, he nursed him until he passed away.
Not wishing to be without family in their home, David was intrigued by an ad in The Globe and Mail for foster parents. It was the early 1980s. Two males? "All they can do is say no," he said.
Then Steve arrived. "He'll kill us in our beds," David said. The Children's Aid Society of Toronto had deemed their home to be a place for boys whose next stop would be a treatment centre.
After 26 years, 36 boys and an award for outstanding service to children, David had created a large and unique family.
Apart from hauling boys out of crack houses, driving others to hockey games and proofreading homework, David ensured that his penchant for detail was integral to family living.
Dinner was at 10 p.m. sharp. His partner would prepare the sumptuous meal - a roast of lamb, for example - while David had the boys set an elaborate table. This is when they sat as a family and talked about the day. A Eucharist, really.
It was a game to try to trip up David. When he wasn't looking, the boys would turn a porcelain figurine ever so slightly, then wait. David would notice and set the figurine just right, much to the boys' amazement and delight.
David looked after all the minutiae necessary for the boys to grow. He knew his job was to let them become who they wanted to be and not wallow in what others defined them as.
A member of Saint Paul's Roman Catholic community in downtown Toronto, David taught children to read from the pulpit and to serve the community at liturgy. He opened the doors of confidence and service through which the children boldly entered.
Steve, now a chef in Germany, flew home to be with David in his last days. Thai came in from Montreal, while Liang did the driving. At the funeral Steve told those gathered, "If it wasn't for David I would surely be dead."
David insisted on life for the boys who came through their home. And he continues to do so in death, as one of his boys now considers fostering children.
Jo NAZAR and Paul HANSEN are David's Friends.

Suddenly, as a result of a household fall with complications, on January 14, 2008 at age 67. Dearly beloved wife of Douglas Grinslade LEWIS of Orillia.

Linda was the rock of the LEWIS family and we will all miss her. She supported and raised the family and then watched over us as she went about her remarkable careers. As well as acting as wife and mother she made a contribution in two careers, as a public health nurse and a lawyer. Once she had raised the family she entered law school at age 51 and was called to the bar in 1994. She was probably the most active legal aid lawyer in Orillia or Simcoe County as she had the ability to empathize with her clients as a result of her public health career. Her client's cause became her cause. At the same time she continued to volunteer in such varied fields as Quota, the Murf Committee, Orillia Association for Community Living and the Soldiers' Memorial Hospital Board of Directors. Her husband Doug revered her as his wife, best friend, interested critic and always best supporter. She will be missed by all she touched. The late Linda Diane LEWIS will rest at the Mundell Funeral Home, 79 West Street North, Orillia, with visitations on Wednesday 7 to 9 p.m., Thursday 2 to 4 pm.. and 7 to 9 p.m. Then to Saint Paul's United Church, 62 Peter Street North, Orillia, for a funeral service at 2: 00 p.m. on Friday, January 18th, 2008.

McGREGOR--In loving memory of our Mother and Grandmother, Olive McGregor,
whose Spirit remains in our hearts forever.
January 30, 1936 to March 6, 1998.
"When I Fly, I Fly"
Far above the earth she soars,
Circling the clear sky.
Flying over forests dim,
Peering in shadows.
Seeking far and wide,
her children,
To give them peace.
Always loved and remembered Dean and Family

BURTCH, Linda
Historian, archivist, cartographer, bookmaker, intrepid traveller, enthusiastic gourmet, wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, friend. Born April 4, 1953, in Morden, Manitoba Died April 9 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, of melanoma, aged 55.
By Anne MacGREGOR, Page L6
Linda possessed great joie de vivre. She was passionate about everything she was involved in, but her main passion was for her family: her husband Michael, daughters Sarah and Michelle and grand_sons Julien, Aidan, Myles, Michael, Stephen and Spencer.
Each stitch that went into the wedding dresses Linda made for her daughters had love in it. Every summer, in spite of her gruelling chemotherapy treatments, Linda and Michael cared for their grand_sons for fun-filled weeks of activity.
Spending time with Linda was always fun. She loved good food and wine and had so many interesting things to talk about, including enthusiastic accounts of recent adventures.
As a historian she loved travelling and visiting art galleries and heritage buildings. A talented photographer, Linda had a darkroom in her home where she developed her own photographs. She was an avid gardener, an excellent cook and talented seamstress, and whatever she produced was perfect. She never spent her time idly - she always had several projects on the go.
When Linda enrolled at Brandon University in Manitoba, her orientation leader was Michael BURTCH. It was love at first sight. One year after they met, Michael and Linda married and moved to Kingston, Ontario, where Michael completed a degree in art history. During this period Sarah and Michelle were born.
In 1981, Michael was appointed director and curator of the Art Gallery of Algoma in Sault Ste. Marie. The family immediately embraced the northern lifestyle and relished their participation in outdoor activities.
Linda and Michael quickly became assimilated into the city's thriving arts community, and Linda completed a bachelor's degree in history. Upon graduating, she was hired in the reference department of the Sault Ste. Marie Public Library, where she was employed for 20 years.
In the early 1990s, she obtained her archive technician diploma. The library's archival collection grew tremendously during her tenure, and now measures 1,100 linear feet. Linda obtained collections of historic papers from all the businesses that formed Sault Ste. Marie's industrial heritage. The city lost a valuable asset in her knowledge and experience.
Linda and Michael loved to travel, but as her illness progressed they both sensed time was getting short. They embarked on an intensive itinerary. Within one year they explored Havana, Nova Scotia, Yellowknife, China, New York, Rome and Venice. Shortly after their trip to Italy Linda died peacefully at home, surrounded by those she loved most.
Anne MacGREGOR is Linda's friend.

Bob MacGREGOR, 74: Broadcaster
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S15
Bob MacGREGOR was perhaps the best-known overnight voice to be heard reading the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio news in the past decade. And that, even though he worked only three nights a week - Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Out of the studio, Mr. MacGREGOR was a man who could not be pigeon-holed. A lover of classical music and opera, he was also a car nut who early in life stuffed a V-8 engine into an MG sports car. He was a dedicated poker player, too: "I remember Bob MacGREGOR sitting down at the Montreal press club one night in the seventies and saying with a straight face: 'I must warn you. I can only stay until 9 in the morning,' " a friend recalled.
The son of Scottish immigrants, he grew up in Toronto. He worked as a copy boy at The Globe and Mail while still at high school, and later studied broadcasting at what was then Ryerson Polytechnic. He then followed the usual pattern of working in small radio stations before landing a job at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Montreal.
At one stage he started a program called RPM, a show that specialized in cars. It gave him a chance to test cars he would otherwise never drive. One of them was a Rolls.
"Bob had the Rolls for a road test. But we drove it to Watkins Glen [N.Y.] for one of their Grand Prix races," said his friend Lionel Birnbom. "Rolls Royce was more than a little surprised to find more than 1,000 miles on the brand-new car after three days."
As a reporter, he covered a number of news events around Montreal, including Expo 67, for which he was awarded a Centennial Medal. He also reported on many elections for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio and served as a commentator on the 1973 election in which Quebec Liberal leader Robert Bourassa won a landslide victory. Along the way, Mr. MacGREGOR came up with the idea for the Quebec Community network, broadcasting to smaller, sometimes isolated, English-speaking communities in Quebec. The network still exists.
By that time he had left the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and started a company which did everything from publish a magazine called Canadian Motorsport Bulletin to produce radio programs which specialized in cars and racing. To help make ends meet, he did voice-over work and acted in a few movies.
Mr. McGREGOR returned to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation more than once. In the late seventies, he was rehired as a public-relations manager and then gave up the job only to rejoin the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation about 10 years later - again in public-relations.
Although Mr. MacGREGOR was a hard worker, there were aspects of public-relations life he didn't like. His son, Alex MacGREGOR, said he remembered his father complaining that he had to spend a day looking after pop star René Simard and then spend that night drinking with Al Waxman, the star of the show King of Kensington.
In 1996, Mr. MacGREGOR retired from his publicity job at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He soon became bored and asked if he could read the overnight news. Because of the hours - 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. on weekends - it was a job few wanted. He usually arrived a early to write his newscasts. "He was a stickler for grammar and language," said his son Alex. "He loved Canada, and he loved the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and reading those newscasts gave him a window on the country."
Robert Bertram MacGREGOR was born August 16, 1933, in Toronto. He died May 31, 2008, in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario He was 74. He is survived by his sons, Alex and William.
