BARBARA JANE BAIN (nee Watt)
Barbara Jane Bain passed peacefully on June 8, 2019 at the age of 80 due to complications from Alzheimer's. She was born in Timmins on Valentine's Day in 1939 and raised in Oshawa along with her three brothers.
Barb graduated from the Ottawa Civic Hospital School of Nursing (Class of 1960) and the University of Western School of Nursing, and then worked at the Hospital for Sick Children before her long and happy marriage to Dr. Harry Bain. They retired from Toronto to the south shore of Lake Nipissing and, after Harry died in 2001, Barb moved into North Bay where she found community and support with her Living Fit group. Barb loved gardening, bridge, birding, baking blueberry pies, hosting epic dinner parties, travelling with friends, volunteering and walking fast and far every day. After her diagnosis, she returned to Toronto to be closer to family and lived independently at Briton House for several years before transferring to their excellent memory care floor. We are grateful for the wonderful care and kindness that Barb received from Briton House, where she died with dignity while surrounded by family.
Barb is the much-loved mother of Jennifer and her husband Rick MacKenzie, and Michael and his wife Jennifer Wells. She is the loving grandmother of Sandy Bain (Britt Ziegler) of Regina - and was close to his mom Jennifer Bain (Ron Mang), also of Regina - as well as Lucy, Kate, Gillian, Archie, Hazel and Charlie, all of Toronto. She is the proud greatgrandmother to Calla Katy Bain of Regina. Barbara is dearly loved by her brother Jim Watt and his wife Merridy of Peterborough, and her brother Bill Watt and his wife Susan Murphy, of Vancouver. She had a loving extended family and a wide circle of lifelong friends, including the nursing girls, friends in Sioux Lookout, extended family at Clear Lake/Cache Bay/ Balsam Lake, Hamiltons, Christies, Baileys and Latimers. Barb was predeceased by her infant sister Catherine Ann, brother David and parents Dr. William Gordon Watt and Lillian Watt (nee Alkenbrack).
She was able to donate her brain to the Maritime Brain Tissue Bank for research and will be cremated and buried alongside Harry at a rural cemetery near Lake Nipissing, where the Bain family loved catching pickerel. A private family gathering is planned.
To share memories or make donations to the Alzheimer's Society of Canada or the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care, please visit Barb's memorial website at http://www.ecofuneral.ca.
MARY VIVIAN BRIDGER
August 29, 1922 June 12, 2019 With profound sadness we announce that Mary passed away suddenly in her home on Wednesday afternoon, June 12, 2019. Mary was predeceased by her beloved husband, Denis, and her sister, Rae Preston. She is survived by her three sons David (Betty), Keith (Morag), and Ian (Nikki), all of whom reside in British Columbia. Mary had eight grandchildren: Andrea, Bonnie, Nicole, Stephen, Michael, James, Emily, and Tom, as well as five great-grandchildren: Sierra, Marin, June, Rhame, and Hunter. Mary is also survived by her nephews in Cornwall, England, Paul, Andrew, and Henry Preston and their families.
Mary was born in Cornwall, England, and at the age of 19 she joined the Women's Royal Air Force and served for five years.
Mary met her future husband, Denis, while he was attending the Camborne School of Mines in Cornwall. They were married in Durban, South Africa, Denis' homeland, and then spent 3 ½ years in the Northern Rhodesian copperbelt. They immigrated to Noranda, Quebec in 1952, and remained with Noranda Mines Ltd in mining towns of northern Ontario and northern Quebec moving 23 times in 24 years. In 1969, Mary and Denis moved to London, England, where Denis worked for Consolidated Gold Fields. Son, Ian, joined them, and sons, David and Keith remained in Canada to attend university.
In 1979, they returned to Canada with BP Selection Trust and while in Toronto, Mary volunteered at Princess Margaret Cancer Hospital in the wig boutique. After retirement, in 1989, Mary and Denis moved to Vancouver where son, David, already had a dental practice, and proceeded to have their dream home built in South Surrey, White Rock. Unfortunately, Denis died in 1991, and Mary continued to live in their lovely home until her own passing. Mary had many interests including her love of the game of bridge and her 'bridge club' continued to attend Mary's home until shortly before her death. She very much enjoyed being a member of the Vancouver Cornish Association, the Greater Vancouver Mining Women's Association and it's book club which continued to meet at Mary's home even in the last month before she died. Mary also belonged to the Vancouver Engineers Wives' Association, the South Surrey Garden Club, and the White Rock Hospice Society.
Mary had a great love of gardening and took great pleasure in picking and arranging flowers for her home from her beautiful back yard garden. Mary was very fortunate to have been attended to by her long time loving and competent care givers, Melvie and Margie, and more recently Melanie and Rosel, all who provided excellent devoted service. Mary loved them and we thank them and their families for their years of devotion and compassion.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Peace Arch Hospice Society. A funeral service will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on June 20th at St Mark, 12953 20th Avenue, Surrey, BC, Canada.

She had suffered strokes and vascular dementia in recent years.
Christine was born in East York (Toronto) on November 7, 1930, received her primary education at Hartman Jones Memorial School, her secondary education at St.
Clement's School and graduated from Toronto Normal School (the forerunner of Teacher's College).
She received her Permanent First Class Certificate for teaching in 1953; she taught first grade in Toronto and Winnipeg.
Christine married Charles Henry ("Chuck") Buckner on April 4, 1953 in Toronto. They had two children, both born in Winnipeg: Wendy Louise Buckner, born in 1959, and Brent Charles Buckner, born in 1963. After the family relocated from Winnipeg to Ottawa, Christine along with Chuck was a leader of the local swimming community for many years; Christine was a Master Official and was the Executive Secretary of the Eastern Ontario Swimming Association for five years.

ANDREW CAMERON BURNS
On June 10, 2019, with his loving family at his side, Andy passed away at the age of 84 at Toronto General Hospital after a short illness. Beloved husband of 58 years to Marguerite (nee Armstrong); cherished father to Susan (Douglas Pepper), Ann, Andrew (Christine Ansley) and James (Meghan Valentine); dear brother-in-law to Heather Woolf and the late Dr. J.H. (Paddy) Woolf of Bermuda; adoring grandfather to Drew, Sophie, Ansley, Luke, Leo, Thomas and William. He is predeceased by his sister Jean and brother David.
Andy was born on November 24, 1934, in London, UK, to Dr. Andrew Shaw Burns and Susan Cameron Burns. With the outbreak of WWII, Andy left London with his mother and sister to stay with relatives first in Ayrshire, Scotland, then in Bible Hill, Nova Scotia, and finally Bermuda in 1941 where they took up permanent residence and Andy's great love for the island began. He was a student and avid athlete at the Saltus Grammar School, playing soccer and running track at the highest level.
He entered Dalhousie University in 1953, obtained his CA from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Quebec, and an MBA in 1965 from the University of Western Ontario where he was president of his class. He married Marg in 1960 in Windsor, Nova Scotia, and they settled in Montreal where, in 1965 he joined the firm of PS Ross.
They spent many happy years in Montreal, working hard but finding time for skiing and tennis, spending summers in Bermuda and Nova Scotia, and raising three children. In 1976, the family moved to the US where Andy became the Regional Partnerin-Charge of Latin America and the Caribbean for Touche Ross International in New York. They moved back to Canada in 1979, now with four children, and Andy became Partner-in-Charge of the Touche Ross North York office.
Upon retirement in 1996, Andy moved with Marg to Zurich where he was Managing Partner of Deloitte & Touche. In 1998, he and Marg made the exciting move to Bangkok where he served for four years as Managing Partner of Deloitte Touche Tomatsu Jaiyos.
Andy traveled extensively for many years, so much so that his grandchildren said it was easier to name all of the countries he had not visited. Andy and Marg returned to Toronto in 2003 and began spending their winters in Andy's beloved Bermuda, playing golf at Mid Ocean Club and spending time with dear family and friends.
Andy was a generous and supportive father and grandfather who will be remembered for his kindness and wisdom, his sense of humour, and his boundless encouragement of academics and athletics. He loved nothing more than a large family gathering and he was always at the ready with a toast or anecdote. He was an exemplary role model of integrity, loyalty, and hard work but also had a grand sense of fun and at his core he was happy. Andy was greatly loved and will be deeply missed.
Cremation has taken place and a ceremony to remember Andy will be held at Mount Pleasant Funeral Centre, 375 Mount Pleasant Road, Toronto (east gate, north of St Clair) on Sunday, June 23, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. For online condolences, please visit http://www.etouch.ca.

MARCELLE DE FREITAS (1920-2019)
Marcelle died peacefully on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 in Toronto.
She was born on the Caribbean Island of St.
Vincent, the third of eleven children. In her final year of high school she was the island's top girl student and was awarded the Island Scholarship, which paid for her university education. With rumblings of war in Europe, her parents did not want her to go to Britain as other scholarship winners had done, so she came to Canada to study at McGill University instead.
Two years after graduating from McGill with a Bachelor of Arts degree, she was hired in 1944 to teach Spanish and Sewing classes at Havergal College, where she was much loved and respected until her retirement in 1984. To honour the many contributions she made to the school during her 40-year tenure, a Havergal House was named after her in 1995. She visited the school for the last time in 2010 to celebrate her 90th birthday with students, faculty and staff of the Marcelle De Freitas House.
Throughout her life Marcelle was deeply involved in service activities in Toronto.
She was tireless in her support of the outreach work of St. Stephen-In-The-Fields Anglican Church (College St.)
Stop 103 (now The Stop) and many other organizations.
She loved children, was a wonderful cook, a gracious hostess and a warm and loving person of great integrity, compassion and goodness.
Her friends thank all those who cared for her at Lakeside Extendicare. As per her wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial service with Eucharist will be held at the Chapel of St. James-theLess, 635 Parliament Street on Wednesday, July 3rd at 10:30 a.m. The Havergal community will mark a celebration of her life this coming fall.

She lived fully and joyously for 93 years, so she did not die young. She lived life fully, loved her family and friends totally, and was as fully loved in return. Her end was rapid, peaceful, and, in its own way, as beautiful as her life. She died in my arms, as I kissed her. She will live on, in my memory, the memories of our children, our grandchildren, our greatgrandchild, and so many of you."
Eleanor was a talented photographer, skilled at portraits and a pioneer of birth photography. She was a speaker, research bibliographer and a wonderful writer. She had a great love and knowledge of classical music and traditional jazz, and was a highly learned supporter of the arts. She loved to name every flower she saw.

Stella married Englishman Donald Etherington and raised their children in Toronto with reverence for British culture and hearty embrace of Canada. Stella worked hard and sacrificed much to give the best she could to her children.
She was kind and generous with many lifelong friends admiring her fortitude, courage and loyalty as a "true friend." She was a gracious hostess, avid tennis player at Moore Park, and animal lover - especially of her cats Pushkin and Tinkerbell.
After two decades working at TVOntario, Stella regularly volunteered to help others and enjoyed lectures at University of Toronto. Her last years at Belmont House were enriched by her new friends, devoted personal caregivers and staff to whom we give our heartfelt thanks.

After graduating from McGill University, Joan and Yank married and attended graduate school at Syracuse University, where she was top of her class. Afterward, they moved to Detroit, MI.

On June 8, 2019, our family and her many, many friends lost a very special person. Diane was so loving, caring, and compassionate.
She will be missed by so many.
Born on October 5, 1945 in Kelowna, BC, she was predeceased by her mother, Chiyo, and her father, Akira Shishido. Diane and Bill married on September 14, 1968 and were blessed with two wonderful daughters, Alison Marconicchio (Vito) and Zoé Doyle (Mike), both born in Thunder Bay. But the greatest joys in her life were her two young grandchildren, Coco Doyle (5) and Bonham Doyle (2). Coco and Bonham could not possibly have been more loved by any Nanée. She loved to get them treats.
Diane had many accomplishments in her life. She was among the last graduates of the TGH School of Nursing. She worked as a nurse, a clinic co-ordinator, and as a medical secretarial instructor at Herzing College where she became the Head Teacher and ultimately Director of the College.
On retirement, she applied her enthusiasm for and love of life to her family and to volunteer and cultural activities. Being a consummate people person, and also very determined, she became a terrific fundraiser, particularly in the theatre sector where she helped found The Company Theatre whose productions received popular and critical acclaim, the most recent being the award-winning production of Jerusalem.
Diane made friends easily. She just attracted people to her given her varied interests, her sense of humour, and her caring nature.
She loved being with her friends and learning about their lives and families, but she particularly loved their shopping and dining outings. Regarding her illness, Diane was stoic, positive, brave, and comforted by how full her life had been. Her only real regret was in not being able to watch Coco and Bonham grow up.
Diane leaves behind her brother, Ron Shishido (Valerie, Lindsey and James, Logan) and sister Sherry Usami (Koji, Lauren and Kyle and Aria, Justin) as well as many relatives from Japan.
Many thanks from the family to the wonderful doctors, nurses, and staff at TGH and the PMH palliative care unit for the wonderful care and comfort they provided her.
A private service will be held on Monday, June 17 and a celebration of her life will be held at a date and venue to be announced.
Arrangements entrusted to Turner & Porter Yorke Chapel. If desired, donations in memoriam may be directed to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

She retired after 20 years in publishing at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.
A lifelong sportswoman, Pat enjoyed many hours and activities at the Cricket Club. She spent winters at Osler Bluff Ski Club and summers at Glenwild in Muskoka.

PETER HOWARD HUNTER RIDOUT
QC On Monday, June 10, 2019 Peter Howard Hunter Ridout died against his wishes. When told by his attending physician that death was imminent, at age 93, his response was "SO SOON?" His wit, intellect and heart were intact to the end. He was incredulous that nothing else would cooperate! Predeceased by the love of his life and wife of over 50 years, Judith Jane Blackey; and his sisters, Joan Bruce and Katharine Knier Kortright; he achieved a Ridout age benchmark through life balance, persistence, curiosity, and four walks a day with his best friend, Charlie. Peter is survived by two generations, Antoinette Ridout and Rob Armstrong of West Vancouver, Thomas and Jana Ridout of Toronto, Peter Ridout and Jacqueline Barron of Calgary, James and Megan Ridout of Toronto and grandchildren, Rebecca, Talia, Samuel, Matthew, Amelia, Charlie, Griffin, Brooke, Leo, Cormac, Jardine, and Blackey.
Peter survived boyhood as a citizen of the Republic of Rathnelly, where fingers in toasters, firecrackers in gas tanks, and the local toughs claimed numerous victims and warned future generations off all kinds of danger. Brown School and ultimately University of Toronto Schools instilled in Peter hard work, perseverance, knowledge, and inquisitiveness.
His summers were spent first as a caddie in 1942 and then a bellhop in 1946 and '47 at Banff Springs Hotel, all the while enjoying mountain hikes, motorcycle rides to Lake Louise, golfing, and camaraderie.
He formed lifelong friendships and an attachment to Western Canada and the mountain parks.
Peter attended Trinity College, U of T. After graduating, he spent a year in Abitibi and then enrolled at Osgoode Hall leading to a career in law. He started practice in 1953 with his friend and brother-inlaw, Maxwell Bruce, and practiced for 40 years, most recently as a partner at McMillan Binch. His legal career was eclectic and followed his interests. He was not a litigator but litigated complex matters to the Supreme Court of Canada with success. His practice touched numerous areas in which he excelled becoming a trusted advisor to many. He was always generous to his colleagues, especially those he mentored. His only bias was excellence.
Peter's interests were many and reflected the Canada of his generation. Canoe tripping, Collingwood, Muskoka, Georgian Bay were hallmarks of a life well lived. On a ski vacation at Tremblant while teaching Judith to ski by demonstration, he fell deeply in love. In competition, he won her hand starting his favourite journey in life. Four children followed and a life full of adventure. When not a gentleman farmer, his devotion was to Grace Church on the Hill and its community although less so the 8am service. He served on numerous boards and gave his time generously to the needs of the community.
A lifelong student at University of Toronto he devoured books, current affairs and always connected to the world around him. He was also a student of French and dressed with flair and purpose. Travel was with intent, highlighted by many unique destinations, China in 1972 and most recently a multigenerational family trip to the Western Front to trace the WWI experience of Col James Arthur Blackey, his father in law.
With a reduced range of athletic goals in his later years, golf, billiards, the sport of bridge and accompanying friendships brought constant joy to his calendar. In addition he relished his next doctors' appointments and humoured doctors and nurses alike always asking about their schooling and upbringing.
His loyalty to family and friends, spanned every part of his life and all generations.
Peter's final steps were taken at Pleasant Prospect, his farm of 50 years in the Pretty River Valley, on a beautiful day with Spring flowers, birds in abundance, and views into the middle distance. From there he took his leave and we are poorer for his absence.
A Memorial Service will be held at Grace Church on the Hill at 3 p.m. on Monday, June 17, 2019.
Reception to follow.
In Peter's memory, memorial donations may be made to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital or University of Toronto School (UTS).
RUTH B. RUSSELL
February 20, 1925 April 30, 2019 Ruth passed away peacefully in her 95th year, in the loving presence of family, at Sunrise of Thornhill. She was born in Doucet, Quebec to Harold and Mary Hinman and spent most of her youth in Montreal, where she met her husband, Arnold.
They were core members of the Dominion Douglas United Church "Young" Couples Club, the source of many deep and long lasting friendships, and Ruth was a hard working member of the UCW. Ruth and Arn relocated to Toronto in 1978 and soon became involved in activities at Fairlawn Avenue United Church and also took up square dancing with great enthusiasm. Ruth carried on bravely after Arnold's passing in 1999 and continued to spend summers at the family cottage at Lac Marois for many years.
Though her later years were impacted by vascular dementia and increasing frailty, she retained her kind heart, her appreciation of people and her sense of humour to the end.
Ruth will always be remembered and cherished by her three children, Ken (Susan J. Peterson), Don (Lynn) and Lois (Phillip Wattam); her five grandchildren, Stephanie Papini (Rocco), Jessica Russell, Sarah Wattam (Marko Skof), Jocelyn Wattam (Shawn Williams) and Christopher Wattam (Christina Campsall); her surviving brother, Allan Hinman (Sherry); her five great-grandchildren and her niece and nephews.
The family wishes to thank caregivers from Seniors For Seniors for years of home care and those at Sunrise for care in her final months.
A celebration of Ruth's life will be held at Fairlawn Avenue United Church, Toronto, on Monday, June 17 at 11:00 a.m. Donations in her memory may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Toronto at http://www.alz.to. Condolences may be sent to the family at RuthRussellFamily@gmail.com
KATHERINE MOULTON STEVENS
Katherine Moulton Stevens died peacefully in Toronto on June 13, 2019. Kitto, as she was known to her family, was born on November 26, 1917 in Oakville to Gladys (née Walker) and John Guest; she was the youngest of four children. Her father was Headmaster at Appleby College, which she and her sister, Elizabeth, attended for several years, despite the fact that it was a boys' school. At the age of 12, she went to Ovenden College in Barrie, and later to the University of Toronto, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. In 1940, she married Major James G.
(Hamish) Osler of Toronto, who was stationed in England at the time. Their daughters, Mary and Kathy, were born in 1941 and 1944, respectively; Hamish was killed in France in 1944. In 1947 Kitto married Major J. Hugh Stevens, who moved to Canada for exactly that purpose (and never regretted it for a moment). In addition to Mary and Kathy, they had three children, Jean (Jennie) in 1948, John in 1949, and Alison in 1951. Hugh Stevens was an executive at Canada Wire and Cable Company, and they travelled throughout the world during his career. Kitto was an outstanding golfer, and tolerated tennis for the sake of the company and five-pin bowling for winter exercise.
She loved singing, and taught us many of the music hall favourites we still sing at family get-togethers. She was an excellent story-teller who specialized in accounts of mischief and derring-do. But most of all, she was our rock and centre, and her family is grateful for the many years she was with us. With all of her people she had particular, rich and sustained relationships, and we each have special and personal memories that frame her love for us and express our love for her. There is at least one memory that we all share, which is Kitto sitting in her long chair in the verandah at the white house at De Grassi Point, where she spent almost all the summers of her life. It will be called "Kitto's Chair" for many years to come, whoever should be sitting in it.
Kitto was predeceased by her daughter, Mary; her second husband, Hugh; and her first husband, Hamish. She is survived by her daughters, Kathy, Jennie (Mehmet), and Alison (John); and her son, John (Nancy; Glenda); by her grandchildren, Kathy, Susie, Rachel, Hugh, Alison (Jamie), Stephanie (Brian), Yasemin (Liam), Jem (Aimée), Sahra (Dave), Flickerine, Luke (Lizzie), Leslie (Texas), Valerie (Brendan), Alexander, Kristin (Jess), Jennie, and Danielle (Tim); and by her greatgrandchildren, Thomas, Jackson, Elise, Beatrice, Clementine, Olivia, Duncan, Hamish, Callum, Lucy, William, Juliet, Emre, Kai, Zoe, Dylan, Alegria, Sam, Sterling, Ella, Cayden, and Harper. For Mira BransbyWilliams and Michèle MarteauD'Autry, Kitto was their Canadian mother; they gave her many fond memories and much love.
There will be a private interment and, later in the year, a celebration of Kitto's life. In remembrance, the family welcomes donations to the Children's Aid Society, Janet McDonald Scholarship, 25 Spadina Ave., Toronto, ON, M5R 2S9 and the Providence Health Care Foundation, 3276 St. Clair Ave. E.,Toronto, ON M1L 1W1.

MARGARET SOMERVILLE WHITELAW
Died peacefully on June 8, 2019 at the age of 72. Known professionally as "Tara Somerville", she was born in Toronto, Ontario to Archibald Burnside Whitelaw and Margaret Somerville Whitelaw (McKibbin).
At the age of 15 she began modern dance with teachers, Mary Wigman and Biannca Rose in the German School. She also danced with the Toronto Dance Theatre with Trish Beatty.
When Tara was 17, she founded a small group in 1964 (Three for Dance) at a theatre at Ryerson with George Sanford and Jon Bush. She began serious training in ballet in her early twenties at the Royal Academy of Dance, London, England. She also trained at the National Ballet of Canada under Lois Smith, Betty Oliphant and David Adams.
Her life of dance changed abruptly when at 18 she was diagnosed with leukemia. She was unable to dance for 2 years while she underwent bone marrow transplants. Her career became very eclectic based on treatment and school. She danced (briefly) with Ballet Rambert in London, the Joffrey Ballet (4 years) as well as experimental groups connected with the National Ballet of Canada.
In 1976, when Tara was 29 she moved to New York City and studied at the Joffrey Ballet, School of American Ballet under Balanchine and New York Conservatory for the Arts.
She began choreographing and teaching at Carnegie Hall, the Louisville Ballet Company, Conservatory for the Arts and Theatre Dance where she was involved in dance groups such as Chet Walker's Fosse projects and Staten Island Ballet Company.
Theatre Dance closed in 1993 and Tara lost her "home base" in New York City. She moved upstate to upper New York State (Woodstock) and taught at the Conservatory for the Arts, Mt. View Studio, Madeline's Dance Centre, formed a Children's Performing Group and Adult Dance Group and was "artist in residence" at Holy Cross Church. She also worked with the Renaissance Fair at the Performing Arts of Woodstock and with the Byrd-on-a-Cliffe Theatre.
In approximately 2007, Tara was diagnosed with Parkinson's and in 2015 she returned to Toronto to be close to her family. Margaret is survived by her sisters, Kathryn, Robin and predeceased by Susan and brothers, James, Richard and Chris. She has a niece, Aislynn, nephews, Andrew and Drake and great nieces, Arwen and Isla.
A private memorial will be held at a later date. The family wish to thank the staff on the 6th floor at Midland Gardens for their compassionate care.

COLIN GEOFFREY BOONE
Born in Toronto, Ontario on April 27, 1977, and died on Georgian Bay, Ontario on June 16, 2012. His father, Geoffrey; sister Jennifer; loving family and friends honour Colin's courage, wisdom and goodness. Colin was raised by his parents, Geoffrey and Elaine, in Toronto, Canada and then in Hilton Head, South Carolina before his return to Canada.
Colin found fulfillment and achieved in sports, Outward Bound, the arts and academic pursuits. He was brilliant and charming. Also a natural helper and led by his love of children, Colin created a high school mentoring program for younger students. He graduated Salutatorian of his class and attended McGill University. Early in adulthood Colin's life was changed by the onset of a devastating mental illness that he fought with immense resourcefulness and bravery.
Even in the face of terrific emotional hardship, Colin could draw from within himself love, fortitude and grace. He extended kindness to strangers and had a deeply felt desire to create a better world. In Colin's life and in his last stand to create peace out of chaos, he was heroic.
Now through the night there shines the light of a spirit that is free... to fly.
