Esther BROUGHTON, peacefully on May 8, 2008 at Christie Gardens, Toronto, in her 93rd year. Predeceased by her husband of 45 years, J. Harold BROUGHTON (d. 1989.)
Loving mother of Catherine BROUGHTON (Joseph MARSHALL) of Thornhill Thora BROUGHTON (George ABONYI) of Ottawa, and Alan BROUGHTON (Heather) of Ottawa. Cherished grandmother of Adam (Sarah), Alyssa, Erik and partner Kathryn AKER, David, Ben, Sam and Avery; and devoted great-grandmother of Emma.

ABOTOSSAWAY o@ca.on.manitoulin.howland.little_current.manitoulin_expositor 2008-11-19 published
ABOTOSSAWAY--In memory of our papa Greg Abotossaway, November 22,2007.
We know you liked to hunt Papa
We have got to see the pictures everyday
You shot a few nice bucks and moose, and told us lots of stories too!
We never understood all of your stories
But our dad, your son, does as we are still too young
But someday we will and we will use that knowledge too.
Moose Camp was sad this year, Papa, without you and we miss you lots
But we knew you were there with us
And especially when dad got his moose
Just like last year when you were with us.
We thought of you the whole time Papa
And all the good times you must have had.
Our dad said he will take up to the spot Papa
Where you got your last big buck
The day before you left us….
And we know, Papa, that you will always be looking down on us and
guarding us,
You are now our Guardian Angel.
You will be missed always.
Love Hunter and Carter Abotossaway (Jason and Natasha).
