RYAN, Joyce
In loving memory of Joyce RYAN who left us two long years ago.
Our lives go on without you
But nothing is the same,
We have to hide our heartaches
When someone speaks your name.
Sad are the hearts that love you
Silent the tears that fall.
Living our lives without you
Is the hardest part of all.
You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true,
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you.
The special years will not return
When we were all together,
But with the love within our hearts
You will walk with us forever.
Loving you forever, the Ryan, Brodrecht and Scott families

Two die in crash on Highway 401 crash
Their sport utility vehicle collides with a transport after crossing the median at Woodstock.
By Joe BELANGER, Sun Media, Tues., February 26, 2008
Two people were killed in a crash after their sport utility vehicle crossed the grass median on Highway 401 at Woodstock and hit a westbound transport carrying a load of fuel.
The crash Sunday night was the second fatal crash in the area in less than a week.
The identities of the victims weren't released. The truck driver was taken to Woodstock hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
"It was just horrible, really sad," said Terra CROWE, 25, of Peterborough, who was headed to Toronto at the time.
"When we were getting closer, we could see the fire and then it just got really big, really fast."
Oxford Ontario Provincial Police said the crash occurred just east of Oxford County Road 2 at 7: 38 p.m. when the eastbound sport utility vehicle went out of control, onto the median and rolled into the transport.
The tanker, full of a mixture of diesel and other fuel products, was travelling to Sarnia.
"Upon impact the passenger vehicle and the truck portion of the unit caught on fire," said Const. Dennis HARWOOD.
The tanker portion of the truck didn't catch fire.
Names of the victims won't be released until next of kin are contacted, Harwood said. [The victims were subsequently identified as Lisa DOWARD, 21, and Sarah Paige RYAN, 19.]
Both lanes of the highway were reopened early yesterday.
Last Wednesday, a Windsor truck driver was killed when his rig slammed into the rear of another transport stopped on the west merge lane from Highway 403 to Highway 401 about 3 a.m.
Muammer ACAR, 40, was killed, but the driver of the stopped truck, Gezim NDRIOLLARI, 52, of Toronto, wasn't injured.
Police continue to investigate that crash.
The provincial Tories added a political twist to the carnage yesterday.
Conservative member of provincial parliament Frank Klees, the public infrastructure critic, cited the crash while calling out the governing Liberals to invest more in improving Ontario roads and toughening laws "before more innocent lives are lost."

ATKIN, John Hamilton " Jack"
Born August 12, 1928 in Leamington, Ontario; died peacefully on May 19, 2008 in his 80th year, exactly 10 days after accepting the news of the extent of his cancer with courage and dignity - the same realistic way he dealt with every other challenge he faced throughout his life, particularly during his last few years with limited mobility and multiple health issues (to quote him, this was just another 'curve ball'). He was surrounded during his last days by love, family, Friends, music, and of course, Flowers. Needless to say, he was telling jokes right up to his last hours of consciousness. He was much loved and will be missed by his children Greg and Carolyn ATKIN, Jay and Mary Maureen ATKIN, Virginia ATKIN and Keith AMBACHTSHEER, and Jacqui ATKIN and Laurie FRASER; his grandchildren Melissa ATKIN and Mike RYAN, Sean and Lori ATKIN and Peter AMBACHTSHEER. He was also very close to and will be missed by his sisters Jane JOHNSON, Bette SHARPE and Ruth STOREY. There are also numerous nieces and nephews who lovingly remember their Uncle Jack, cousins, a multitude of Friends, and a brother Bill. Predeceased by his parents Edward and Edith (JACKSON) ATKIN, his step-mother Agatha (WILSON) ATKIN his brother Don ATKIN, his brothers-in-law, far too many Friends, and his soulmate, Mary (ROBERTSON) BLAIR, with whom he is now reunited. Always a visionary, Jack was a pioneer in the growing, mass marketing and distribution of flowers throughout his career. He was one of the first flower producers to introduce the sale of potted plants and cut flowers to major food chains and department stores. In carrying on the family business that his father started (Atkin's Flowers, then Yoder-Atkin), he advanced the year-round propagation and sale of chrysanthemum cuttings to North American markets, and was a great believer in plant breeders' rights. His innovation for packaging and distribution led the way for the success that exists in today's flower industry. He also started the direct sales business at Ontario Flower Growers. Known as 'Action Jackson', he was also an avid volunteer in numerous organizations - he was one of the founders of the Cecil Delworth Foundation and the Canadian Ornamental Plant Foundation, a strong supporter of Flowers Canada and The Canadian Horticulture Council, and served on the Board of the Royal Winter Fair when they introduced the flower show into the annual program. Jack has always been recognized by the flower industry of North America and has been given many awards for his contributions over the years. He was also involved in building the Leamington District Memorial Hospital in the 1950s. His interests included having the best garden in town, curling, Kinsmen, tennis, barbershop singing, playing cards, scotch, dancing (even in his wheelchair) and more recently being a Claremont Calendar guy! Jack was always proud of the lifelong Friendships he made along the way with so many people, including his colleagues, most of his clients, and his competitors. His life was about 'caring and sharing'. He will be remembered by his 'power of positive thinking' approach to life, his loyalty and Friendship, the flowers he always had for everyone, and his lifelong ambition to make people smile. Jack's family is very grateful to Lynn WEBSTER, Natalie COPPOLINO and the entire Staff of The Claremont Retirement Residence for making the last few years of his life so happy (and the Residents, too); to Doctor Mary GOSPODAROWICZ of The Princess Margaret Hospital, and Dianne WILLIAMS and all of the very special Palliative Care Nurses at Saint Michael's Hospital for their care and compassion in easing the pain for Dad, and helping his family through this last part of his journey Dr. Gary MAY and the Gastro-Intestinal Team at Saint Michael's Hospital as well as Doctor Carmen MUELLER and Doctor Catherine WONG. Arrangements handled by The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, North York. A Celebration of Life will be held at The Old Mill, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto on Tuesday, June 17 at 3: 00 p.m. While there will definitely be flowers, we ask that those interested in making a donation to remember Jack do so either to The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, 610 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 2M9 (1.866.224.6560 or www.pmhf.ca) or to The Jack Atkin Memorial Fund at the Ontario Agricultural College, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2W1 (payable to the University of Guelph). We are setting up a 'Jack Atkin Memories' website - you can email jacqui.atkin@sympatico.ca to send us your stories and photos, and to be added to get on our website announcement mailing list. We will all miss Jack's warmth, love of life, and jokes! It Was A Great Ride!
