When Dunrobin Road flooded on June 23, it wasn’t the first time in recent memory. Not even the second. It was the third time in ten months that a huge downpour of rain clogged ditches and culverts beyond capacity, resulting in floods

and roads being shut down for construction. Around 113 millimetres of rain fell in a one-hour period last week, overwhelming an existing culvert and resulting in the closure of Dunrobin Road between Kilmaurs Side Road and Kinburn Side Road. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry said that plans were already in motion

to build a larger culvert, but now it will be done with urgency. Construction is underway to install a new culvert about two feet wider than the current one. Dunrobin Road is expected to reopen by June 29 or 30.

Construction of a larger culvert is a priority: Coun. Eli El-Chantiry FLOOD, from 1 El-Chantiry said it is a priority to have it up and running before Canada Day festivities bring community members out on that road. Flooding wasn’t restricted to Dunrobin Road, and MacLaren’s Landing was also hit very hard by the large rainfall. The Ottawa River water level rose by six inches as a result of the storm, El-Chantiry said. Additional construction is expected to take place to prevent further flooding. “I’m not looking to rebuilt just one culvert,” ElChantiry said. “I’m looking at the whole system to deal with all the floods that are occurring.” Early next week, most likely Monday, El-Chantiry said he will bring a team of staff members to view areas most affected by flooding, and decide what can be done. The team will include staff from Public Works and Infrastructure Services, as well as legal experts. It has not been determined where funding will come from for upcoming construction projects. In April of this year, more than 90 millimetres

of rain overwhelmed culverts and ditches and resulted in flooded roads and homes. Similar flooding occurred in August of last year, when large amounts of rain as well as a dislodged beaver dam caused the Dunrobin culvert to become clogged. A construction worker on Dunrobin Road said that last August’s damages were repaired, but workers weren’t able to clear out all of the debris on the downstream side of the creek, which may have led to the overflow this time. El-Chantiry said he disagrees, and thinks the flooding occurred from too much water and too small of a culvert to accommodate it. While it is tempting to label last week’s storm as a freak occurrence, it’s hard to deny how frequently such heavy rainfalls are happening. “It was a phenomenal amount of rain,” El-Chantiry said. “But at the same time, if this is the kind Staff photo of rain we’re going to receive, how are we going to Construction crews work to rebuild a culvert under Dunrobin Road on manage it?” That is a question El-Chantiry and his staff will Saturday, June 25.

It may be Canada’s 144th birthday, but the nation still knows how to have a good time. There is no shortage of things to do on July 1, with celebrations planned all over West Carleton. Start your day off with a trip to the West Carleton Legion in Constance Bay for their annual Canada day parade. Meet in the Legion parking lot at 2:30 p.m. and take a trip around the bay to showcase floats and participants. This year’s theme is Cartoons, so decorate accordingly! Following the parade, the Legion will host presentations, a barbeque and entertainment. If you’re in Fitzroy Harbour, stop by the Harbour Days celebration which takes place from June 29 to July 2 at the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre. On Canada Day, get out your pom-poms to cheer on the West Carleton Electric Fastball Game at 4 p.m., or the youth ball hockey tournament at 1 p.m. Kids can do crafts, get their faces painted and show off their wheels in a kid’s bike parade at 5 p.m. Fireworks top off the day at 9:30 p.m. Dunrobin folks can head to their community centre anytime from 3-11 p.m. Festivities include a bouncy house and an obstacle course for the kids, plus live music and a beer tent for the adults. At 3:30 p.m., scope out some talented canines at the West Carleton Dog Agility Show. Dessert is served at 6 p.m. with the singing of O Canada. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry and Mayor Jim Watson will be present to help cut the cake. An extended fireworks show will begin at 9:45 p.m. to end the evening.

A $59-million expansion of the OTrain system was approved by city council on June 22. The changes will add six new trains to the north-south line to increase the frequency of service from 15 minutes to eight minutes. The money will also go towards constructing two passing track.

Since being introduced in 2001, the O-Train has almost reached its ridership capacity. Increasing the ridership capacity of the trains is aimed at easing the pressure on the bus system during construction of the city’s east-west light-rail transit (LRT) line, which is expected to begin in 2013. Increasing the O-Train’s level of service will make the train the fastest commute option for a number of riders, including those who travel from

BUCKHAM’S BAY WIND STORM Buckham’s Bay resident Dawn Wilson photographed the violent hail and wind storm that hit the area in the early evening of June 23. A river that suddenly appeared on her Bayview Drive property washed out part of her beach. Hail, unusual in the Constance Bay area, took chunks out of her benches and dimpled vehicles in the area. The outburst of hail and rain “sounded like a train going through,” she said, noting it probably lasted for only about 10 minutes, but “it felt like a lot longer.”

LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Residents and teams looking to book city facilities can now hop online to see what is available. From booking arena ice time to pools, gyms and meeting rooms, information on when city-owned facilities are available is now on ottawa.ca. That’s a big improvement from the days when coaches would have to fax the city a request for available dates and times and wait for up to 48 hours before receiving a response, said Beacon Hill-Cyrville councillor – and minor hockey coach – Tim Tierney. “Those days are behind us now,” said Tierney, who is also the chair of the city’s

information subcommittee. “We can now see it live.” Residents also had the option to call or email the city to find out when facilities are available. Once you find out the availability for the facility you would like to book, the process of actually booking it gets a bit trickier. Online booking aren’t yet available – that will be coming in October, Tierney said. Although the phone number is not yet posted on the site, residents and coaches should call 613-580-2595 or email sports@ ottawa.ca to reserve a facility. To access the online booking site, go to ottawa.ca, click on the “Recreation and Culture” tab, click on “City facilities,” “Recreation facilities” and then click “Rentals.”

What’s orange, green, and read all over? Well, I drive an orange car, am interested in environmental issues, and am hoping to be read by West Carleton residents as the new reporter for the West Carleton Review. When I’m not reporting and taking pictures, I enjoy devouring books as quickly as possible and learning just how awful a cook I am. I am looking forward to getting to know your communities and the issues at the heart of them. I’m interested in historical happenings and everyday ones. I would love to hear from you regularly – What sort of events are coming up in your neighbourhood? What issues have been weighing on your mind lately? Who in your community has done something truly exceptional? I’ll be on the lookout myself, but I’d love some input from anyone willing.

To the editor: Over the years I have been amused at the never ending opinions of Mr. Jeff Spooner. He regularly expounds his views on a variety of subjects but saves his most vitriolic attacks for the Carleton Landowners Association (CLA). Although I am not a CLA member, I admire the way that they promote the use of common sense over yet more rules, regulations and bylaws that require more and more city staff to enforce them. Mr. Spooner, despite what you wish, the CLA does have popular support, as demonstrated by the recent selection of Jack MacLaren over Norm Sterling. Perhaps it is time, Mr. Spooner, to get yourself out into the community and become an active volunteer, but I must warn you, in doing so, you will lay yourself open to criticism from self-appointed side-line commentators. Maybe you could offer your services to the CLA as a moderator. Mr. Spooner, become a contributor to society and not a side-line whiner. Peter Everett Woodlawn ***

Their contribution to the well-being and care of another country’s populace is a tremendous reflection of Canada’s efforts toward maintaining global peace and we are proud of the way you have represented us. Words are not enough to convey how grateful we are for their commitment and dedication.

On the right track

A

fter more than half a decade of muddling its way through the file, Ottawa city council made a positive first step toward building an effective light rail system last week. It might not have the same impact as the massive, multi-billion dollar light-rail transit plan that is slowly working its way through city hall, but the approval of a plan to purchase six new trains and construct a pair of passing sections on the north-south O-Train line puts the city on course to realize the benefits of a truly effective transit system. Started as a pilot project back in 2001, the current O-Train line that runs from Bayview south to Greenboro has reached capacity. The introduction of additional trains – the current system uses two – will drastically increase that capacity and will reduce the average wait time between trains from 15 to eight minutes. But for nearly $60 million, what a grown-up version of the O-Train will provide is a taste of the potential light rail has to improve transit in this city.

For many residents, transit can mean waiting in the heat or cold for a bus that will only get stuck amid the throng of other commuters clogging the streets. For those with access to the O-Train, this investment will mean a vastly improved experience, especially when trips on the Transitway become less enticing once construction on the east-west LRT grinds service through Hurdman Station to a halt. The move also opens the door for future expansion of the north-south line. Transit Commission chairwoman Diane Deans has already asked city staffers to look at the feasibility of extending the O-Train as far south as the Leitrim park-and-ride, providing rail access to the growing community of Riverside South and the airport. The addition of new stops along the existing line is also being proposed by members of the community. The expansion of the O-Train represents the first real improvement to transit in Ottawa in recent years, and will mark the beginning of a light rail revolution in the nation’s capital.

Something else to blame on the cellphone

I

t is a winding road of logic that leads to the conclusion that there would have been no riots in Vancouver if people still smoked, but you are patient people and the journey is an interesting one. Begin with a series of observations. At the gym, a man gets dressed after his workout, steps out into the lobby and takes out his cellphone. Coming out of a concert, a couple pauses outside the door while both people draw cellphones out of their pockets. Sitting alone in a restaurant, a woman toys with her phone while she waits. In a car stopped at a light, a man furtively checks his phone. Now, they may all have important calls to make, important messages to read, but what they are doing looks so much like smoking it’s spooky. When people used to smoke, that’s when they did it – coming out of a place where smoking was forbidden, such as a church or concert hall, sitting in the car, waiting alone for someone. Now they use the phone in the same situation – as a reward, as something to pass the time, as something to disguise the fact that they have nothing to do. Perhaps people don’t check their cellphones after sex, another stereotypi-

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town cal cigarette moment, but these days you can never be too sure. Another classic cigarette moment that can’t be replicated with the cellphone is the act of picking up the phone. A lot of people used to light up when making a call. Picking up the phone while picking up the phone doesn’t make a lot of sense, although you wouldn’t put it past some people. With this incontrovertible evidence at hand, do we make the logical leap and blame the decline of the cigarette for the rise of the cellphone? Of course. Remember the Law of Unintended Consequences? It’s obviously at work here. We got rid, for the most part, of a habit that caused death and disease, both to practitioners and innocent bystanders. We rid our indoor spaces, not to mention our clothes, of vile smells and unbreath-

able air. So that was all good. Our reward was the outbreak of another vice, less fatal and less smelly, but with social implications we are only now beginning to measure. Short attention spans, people seemingly talking to themselves on buses, customized ringtones interrupting plays and concerts, some very weird driving – we are familiar with all of these and the consequences are no mystery. We know far less about the consequences of everyone carrying a camera in their telephone. Thanks to the telephone camera, more people than ever before take photos. How does it affect people’s behaviour knowing that just about every person they meet is a photographer? Well, for many people, not enough. Celebrities seem to indulge in just as many colourful activities as before, their lapses in judgment captured by amateur cellphone paparazzi. People sleep on the job, drive and text while cellphone vigilantes point and click. So the cellphone camera seems to be no deterrent to bad behaviour. The question raised by the Vancouver riots is whether the cellphone camera actually encourages that behaviour. To watch the proceedings on live TV,

you would certainly think so. Thug after thug, idiot after idiot jumped in front of the cameras to set something on fire, break a window or just stand on a burning car and yell. Some strange quest for immortality may have been at play here. Who knows? What we do know, or at least suspect, is that the yahoos would not have been so enthusiastic had they not had a big audience. And the audience might have gone home, making the situation much more manageable, if they hadn’t had cellphone cameras and the urge to record history.

Visit Pinhey’s Point Historic Site in Dunrobin and take a step back in time. Home to one of the oldest houses in Ottawa, the Pinhey estate called Horaceville stands almost exactly as it did when it was built in the early 1800s, down to some original wallpaper and wood trimming. Historians have tried to maintain the house as close to the original design as possible. “Some people come hoping for it to look set up, but it isn’t, said Melissa Lansing, the education and interpretation program officer at Pinhey’s Point. “It makes the story a lot more tangible, and it makes people ask questions about the family who lived there.” Hamnett Pinhey was an English merchant who came to Canada to find a better life for his family – and to skip up a few rungs on the social ladder. In 1820, Pinhey began to build a log cabin, constructing additions until it became the house that stands today. Horaceville was completed in the 1840s after several add-ons, which can be seen from the river by the increasing window size as time went on. “People have been visiting here for ages,” Lansing said. “Visitors come and tell stories about when they used to visit the Pinhey family.” Ruth Pinhey was the last sur-

She was quite the character, Lansing said, breeding dogs and selling turkeys. “She kept her turkeys in the ballroom,” Lansing said. Quirky habits ran in the family, apparently. When Hamnett Pinhey saw friends passing by along the water, he would fire a cannon as a welcoming gesture. But in later generations, young boys took to firing them at tour boats passing by, so the cannons had to be moved inside.

“People are always asking why there is a cannon in the bedroom,” Lansing said. From May through September, the house is open to the public as a free museum. The 36 hectares of property along the water offer space to hike, take picnics and play, as well as a dock for boats to anchor on. On weekends, heritage-clothed staff offer guided tours and will take visitors to the nearby St. Mary’s Church where some of the Pinhey family is buried. Lansing said that all of these features are what make the site

unique. “Pinhey’s Point is not just a park and it’s not just a museum,” she said. “It’s both.” Summer programming in-

cludes all sorts of activities for kids and families. The Wonderkids program is for preschoolers who want to get involved with nature, and runs every Thursday in July. For kids a little older, between eight and 12, the Junior Naturalist Club teaches members about the plants and animals around them, running every Saturday in July. Pinhey’s Point’s largest event of the year is Riverfest on August 14, celebrating the history and traditions of the Ottawa River; a Canadian history lesson and family fun day all in one. Lansing said that she hopes to have longtime visitors returning for events, but also that new families and history enthusiasts will visit for the first time. “A lot of people don’t know that we’re here,” she said. “We’re like a hidden gem.” To learn more about Pinhey’s Point or to plan a visit, go to www.pinheyspoint.ca.

Crime prevention is everyone’s responsibility Everyone in rural Ottawa plays an important role in helping to keep our communities safe. Community safety is everyone’s responsibility and crime prevention is everyone’s business. Being the eyes and ears in your neighbourhood, it’s essential to communicate all suspicious and criminal activity to your community and police; no matter how trivial you might think it is. Not all calls are 911 calls. For a police response to a non-emergency situation such a suspicious or unusual event in progress, call 613-230-6211. Or, if you discover that you were a victim of a theft from vehicle or mischief, report it to the Ottawa Police Call Center at 613-236-1222 ext.7300. Remember, your calls matter. The community police centre is a “community problem-solving centre” and is responsible for delivering crime prevention programs to the community. If you have any safety or security questions or concerns, give us a call. You can reach your nearest CPC office by calling 613-236-1222 and dialling zero. It is important to note that the CPC is not an emergency response centre and that we do not dispatch cars to complaints or crimes in progress. When a situation arises it is important to know the numbers to

Const. Peter Jeon Community police officer call for an appropriate response. Keep the following numbers close by or call the CPC and ask for your very own Make the Right Call fridge magnet. • 911—for life-threatening emergencies or crimes in progress • 613-230-6211—other emergencies, i.e.: suspicious incident or disturbance • 613-236-1222, ext. 7300—the O.P.S. call centre, to report a theft, missing person or stolen vehicle • 311—for Bylaw Dispatch Services • 613-233-8477 or 1-800-222-8477 — for Crime Stoppers. Your call will remain anonymous and Crime Stoppers do not subscribe to call display. Also, you can find all of these numbers along with other useful information can be found in the red pages at the front of your residential directory. Finally, if you are ever in doubt as to whether or not you should call police, or you cannot remem-

ber the non-emergency numbers, call 911. The caring and professional 911 Call Takers will steer you in the right direction.

COLLISION DEER CALL FROM TEXAS Week twenty-five and nine more deer collisions were reported in the rural west districts; four in West Carleton and five in RideauGoulbourn. Here is something you might find interesting—shortly before 3 a.m. on Sunday, police received a call from a BMW dispatcher in Texas stating that a customer was involved in a single motor vehicle accident involving a deer on Ashton Station Road. The total score now stands at 67 to 42, in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn.

On June 23: Len Purcell Drive, Constance Bay: A 17-year-old male from Constance Bay was charged under the Highway Traffic Act for failing to report a collision and driving without a licence after he lost control of a car and smashed it up. In the early afternoon hours on Thurs., June 23, police were dispatched to the Constance Bay area for a report of a single motor vehicle accident on Len Purcell Drive. On arrive they found a destroyed and abandoned green Pontiac sedan sitting approx. 100-feet off of the roadway in the Torbolton Forest; the car had sustained major body damage throughout. Through investigation officers learned that at around 8 a.m. on Thursday the teenage driver took his grandmother’s car for a joyride, without her knowledge, and headed east along Len Purcell with his girl friend. As they sped down the gravel roadway the driver lost control of the car and flew into the air before crashing head-on into a ditch and flipping over. Panicking, both the driver and

his passenger fled the scene without reporting the collision. The female passenger was later transported to hospital for assessment of non-life threatening injuries. FIRE • June 17, 125 Harold Valley Dr.: A fire completely destroyed a residential trailer in the late afternoon hours on Friday after the owner accidently left a pot of grease on the stove and stepped away from his house to retrieve his mail. Upon looking back at his house from the roadway he was taken aback by the sight of smoke pouring out from his trailer. By the time the homeowner got back to his trailer it was fully engulfed in flames and he was unable to save his dogs. • June 20, 304 Spruce Ridge Rd.: Shortly before 9 a.m. on Monday, emergency services were called out to a property on Spruce Ridge for a report of a fire. By the time police arrived on site the house was fully engulfed in flames. No one was inside of the house when emergency services arrived on scene and it is believed that an unattended lit cigarette was the cause of the fire.

Hailey Kehler won first place in the Love Shouldn’t Be a Battlefield poster contest hosted by the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre.

Poster contest sheds light on dating violence in teens JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre handed out awards to the winners of the teen relationship poster contest on Wednesday, June 22. The contest, called Love Shouldn’t Be a Battlefield, was created to shed light on violence in teen relationships among high school students. “The messages on the posters is so, so powerful,” said Cathy Jordan, executive director of the WOCRC. “The contest helps to spread the word that violence is not OK.” First place winner Hailey Kehler was awarded an iPod for her winning design. Her poster depicts a young man raising his hand to a girl in a dimly lit hallway. The word “help” is written on the sole of her shoe. The poster states: “Others can’t always see the effects of dating violence on your soul. Write ‘help’ on the sole of your

shoe and start a conversation about dating violence and its effects” – with help standing for Healthy Equal Loving Partners.” “A healthy relationship is definitely a key,” said Hailey, a Grade 11 student at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville. “It doesn’t just affect the outside physically, but emotionally too.” She got the idea from the nonprofit movement To Write Love on Her Arms, a group dedicated to help people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. “I felt the need to communicate,” said Hailey about writing HELP on the sole of shoes. “Women’s rights are so important.” About six of her friends have helped spread her message by putting HELP on their footwear, she said. “Hailey created a whole campaign around her poster,” said Jordan.

WINNING DESIGNS A.Y. Jackson Secondary Student Lisa Cummings took second place for her ‘Stop and Look’ poster. “I think it’s important, you want to trust the person you’re going to be with,” said the Grade 11 student. “In raising awareness, it’s good for people to know there’s help out there for them.” Lisa won a gift certificate to Bayshore Shopping Centre for her poster. Grade11 A.Y. Jackson students Kathrine Marincak, Lizz Jackson, Nicole Madore and Cynthia Ritchie all took home honourable mentions for their poster designs. “We target the grades 7 and 8s with healthy dating so we wanted something to follow up with the high school students,” said Terry Longhorn, peer support worker at the WOCRC. “The questions they asked… they were asking very intelligent questions. It’s a stepping stone.”

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when they’re in the market for related products or services.

When viewing art by local artist Cheryl Poulin, you can’t help but reach out and touch it. And unlike at a museum, she doesn’t mind at all. As a mixed media artist, Poulin is always looking for new materials to use in her works. “We’re great recyclers,” she said about those in her craft. “We get very excited about finding a rusty bottle cap on the street.” Doesn’t matter if it’s a Starbuck’s cup, an onion mesh bag, tissue paper, cardboard, sand or plaster, anything goes when Poulin expresses herself through artwork. As an artist who has been creating and teaching for 20 years, it only makes sense for her to be part of a society that brings local artists together. Poulin has been a member of the West Carleton Arts Society for three years. “We’re here to promote local artists and support them,” Poulin said. The society, established in 1990, focuses its efforts on one art show and one conference per year. This year’s show will take place Oct. 7 to 9 and will be a continuation of last year’s theme. The event is titled Expressions of Art: Art in the Big Fish, playfully addressing the show’s location in Carp. Last year, a friendly competition took place for artists to create a piece of work embodying the fishy theme, and this year will be no different. Additionally, artists involved will create hand-painted signs in the shape of fish to promote the show, just like they did last year. “There were some other art shows going on at the same time, so the fish really got people’s attention,” Poulin said. Last year, when member Catherine Gutsche’s sign was stolen, the “fish caper” made the news and added to the publicity of the event. Vendors will sell all kinds of art, including but not limited to greeting cards, photography, fiber art, jewelry, pottery, basket weavings, and wood carvings.

West Carleton Arts Society member Cheryl Poulin displays two of her abstract mixed media works, titled (from top to bottom) Ship of Dreams and Moon Shine. With 20 current members, the WCAS can’t fill all of the 35 slots available for artists within their show, so they invite other artists in the Ottawa area to join. Ideally, Poulin said, membership will increase to the point where it is solely a display of West Carleton talent. Rosy Somerville is a member of the society as well as the show organizer, and said it’s important to have an arts society in a community like West Carleton. “It’s quite a large spread and a diverse community,” she said. “I think art helps to bring people together.” To Somerville, the importance of art only increases as time goes on. “In this world full of so much technology where everything is computer- and machine-made, the individualism of handmade pieces is something special,” she said. A year-long membership to the society costs $20 and includes first dibs on a booth in the show, society updates, as well as a personal web link on the WCAS web page.

Column

The countdown is on. In just a few nights, my daughter graduates from high school. I have been feeling rather weepy and discombobulated about the whole thing. My daughter knows this. And so what does she do about it? She takes advantage of my moment of weakness and, for the first time in her teenaged years, asks us to do something for her. She asks us to host the After-Grad Party at the farm. Oi-vay. How do we say no? That’s right. We don’t. We are somewhat honoured to have been asked. We say yes. But not right away. First, we called friends who had hosted aftergrad in previous years. We got advice on how to orchestrate the whole event so that a good time is had by all, and everyone gets home safely. Mostly it’s about collecting car keys, parking cars where they cannot be easily retrieved (i.e. in the grazing pasture of a biting donkey and a charging ram) and setting up tents. Lots of tents. I have enlisted the help of a few of the other parents of graduates, in case I need drivers to transport partiers to their homes. For most of the evening,

DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife I imagine we will be sitting on the screened-in porch, not exactly eavesdropping on the festivities but definitely keeping an ear out for trouble. But I don’t think we really have much to worry about. We have a smart bunch of kids graduating this year. I will be getting the Farmer to reinforce the gates to the barnyard so that no revelers end up on the manure side of the fence in the dark. I don’t want anyone getting stepped on by a horse – or attempting to ride her. Paulina has asked some friends to come over to help set up on Wednesday morning. By the time this column is in print, the dance floor will be built, the tent over the dance floor will be erected, the porta-pottie will be in place and the firewood will be neatly stacked next to

the bonfire pit. Tiki torches will be installed around the yard and strings of lights will be hung from the trees to keep party guests from wandering into the stinging nettle in the dark. The graduating class of 2011 has compiled lists of music requests, and Paulina has spent the better part of a week downloading songs.. In order to recognize certain students’ unique contributions to high school life, awards will be presented. I imagine they will bear the titles: Best Dressed; Drama Queen; Teacher’s Pet; Class Clown, etc. But I could be wrong. They have their own special memories, their own achievements to celebrate, their own shared experiences to commemorate at their 2011 AfterGrad Oscars. This is their night. We are just the ones honoured to be hosting for them, giving them a safe place to celebrate friendships, the end of one phase of their lives and the beginning of the next. I just hope Paulina gets home from Wonderland in time to help me set up those tiki torches or the Farmer is going to be grumpy.

24 DEATHS

DORZEK In loving memory of a dear son, Jarett who passed away July 2, 2010. A sadness still comes over us, Tears in silence often flow, Memory keeps you ever near us, Though you died one year ago. Loving you is easy, We do it every day, Missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. A part of our heart he took with him, But his love he left us to keep, So we will never really be parted, The bond between us is too deep. No farewell words were spoken, No time to say goodbye, You were gone before we knew it, And only God can tell us why. It broke our heart to lose you, But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. Our heart still aches in sadness, Our silent tears still flow, For what it meant to lose you, Jarett, No one will ever know. If we could have one lifetime wish, One dream that could come true, We’d ask with all our hearts, For yesterday and you. Love Mom and Dad CL25103
