I'm sentimental when I think of youI'm sentimental of things we used to do I feel a sadness because we had to part But when I'm sentimental you're here in my heart I remember times when grass was green Of the many happy years you were my queen I remember times when skies were blue I know it is because I loved you I'll love your forever till the day I die I'll love you forever although I seldom cry I feel so lonely since you went away But by loving you forever You're in my heart to stay I remember birds singing in the trees Of lovely flowers dancing in the breeze I remember rainbows golden hue I know its because I love you I know you loved me more than life can tell I know you loved me and I love you as well I know you wouldn't like it to see me sad this way So I'll try to be happy and show my love that way Now I will wipe the tear drops from my eyes And look up at the blue thats in the sky I'll listen to the little birds that sing And accept what this life may bring.From her loving husband Bill and pet cat Pumpkin

ADIE, Roland James - Passed away peacefully at home in the arms of his wife and snuggled up to his dogs on April 5, 2006, following a courageous battle with cancer. A life too short but filled with fun and a fierce enthusiasm for living. His passing will leave an unspeakable void in the hearts and lives of many: his family and a very large and caring extended family. He was the loved husband and soul mate of Clare (nee Parker). Roland loved to live and lived to love. Generous, kind and warm hearted with a wonderful but mischievous sense of fun. A lover and creator of good food and at one with nature, animals and family. A gifted home renovator and craftsman. Roland will be lovingly remembered by all who knew him. During the toughest two years of his life great support was provided by a tremendous network of family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and the most wonderful health team: his GP team (Dr.Thomson), his oncology team at Trillium Health Centre (Dr. King), CCAC (Peel), St.Elizabeth, Red Cross, Hospice of Peel and Wellspring. Thank you all, you made a difference. A celebration of Roland's life will be held at YORK VISITATION, CHAPEL AND RECEPTION CENTRE - NORTH YORK, 160 Beecroft Road (Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue), 416-221-3404 on Sunday, April 9th at 2 p.m. with visitation two hours prior to the service.

Joseph (Padeola) Adetuyi, born February 1921, left this earth April 10, 2006, 85 years young. Survived by his wife Ilona, children Alfons (Lisa), Tom (Kathy), Amos (Annmarie), Rob (Linda), Veronica (Michael) and Joe, and ten beautiful grandchildren Alexis, Aaron, Ashley, Adrian, Brianne, Matthew, Daniel, Ingrid, Braedan and Jordan.Joseph was born in Ondo, Nigeria and left to see the world at the tender age of 17 when he joined the British Merchant Marines and served in WWII. After his meritorious service, including surviving the sinking of his ship, he landed in Sudbury, Ontario and joined the International Nickel Company (INCO). He holds the distinction of being the first West African to settle in Ontario. Joseph met and married his wife Ilona in Sudbury and together they raised their six children. Fiercely proud of his African heritage, his children and grandchildren will always remember the many stories told them by their ''Bubba'' and therefore have a true and lasting respect for their African roots and the hardships their grandfather overcame making his life in Canada. Retired from INCO after 29 years, Joseph eventually followed all of his children and their children to a new life in Toronto where he lived out his later years. Though his last years presented him with a number of difficult challenges because of his struggles with debilitating diabetes, Joseph was most certainly a marvel to everyone who knew him. A courageous and very tenacious man, he repeatedly overcame obstacles while keeping his positive outlook and love of life throughout. Loved by many, remembered forever a true one of kind, ''African Joe'' has taken his last trip home and will forever be free. Our family would like to give heartfelt thanks to everyone at Credit Valley Hospital, most particularly in the dialysis unit for their many years of care and friendship to our father. In his last days, he was cared for and became friends with the wonderful staff at The Wenleigh, who spoke to him in his native tongue and saw to his every need with kindness and dignity. We will be forever grateful.

SHIRLEY AMELIA CHESHIRE
With sadness at her passing and joy in her life, the family of Shirley Amelia Cheshire announce her death, after a long illness, on Friday, March 10, 2006. Shirley was born on June 20, 1918 in Oil Springs, Ontario, the fourth child of George Thompson and Margaret Williams. She was predeceased by her older siblings, Russell (d. 1909) and Florence Limon (Archie) and is survived by her older brother, Kemp Thompson (Joan) of Kitchener. In 1944, Shirley married John Robertson Cheshire of Wiarton, Ontario, then a lieutenant. Their loving partnership of 62 years gave great joy to them, their family and friends. John gives thanks for the life of his dear wife. Shirley was a loving and proud mother to Robert and his wife, Rosamund da Gama, and to Pamela and her husband, Jim Gallagher. She was a doting grandma to Robert's children, Katie and David, and to Pamela's children, Kevin and Shannon. She is remembered with sweet affection by many nieces and nephews and a great circle of friends.Shirley's parents gave her a bright and wise mind, a loving nature, the gift of music, a belief in hard work, deep Christian values, a commitment to community service, strong Canadian patriotism, pride in her Scots and Welsh roots, and the love of a good party! She never let heart problems, contracted at the age of five, get in the way of an active purpose-filled life. When she and John met, she was already the acting manager of a trust company branch. Her management and financial skills assisted her as she served in many positions notably as President, Municipal Chapter of Toronto and as IODE National Treasurer. In IODE, Shirley co-initiated annual book awards for children, encouraged projects with Canada's First Nations, and children's health care. She served on a number of boards, including the Children's Centre, North York General Hospital. In the mid-70s, John's firm, PPG Canada, nominated her the firm's citizen of the year. Chosen, she was honoured in Pittsburgh and threw the first pitch at a Pirates game. Each year an award is presented in Shirley's name at the Kiwanis Music Festival, Toronto; generously she contributed family antiques to the national museum in Oil Springs, Ontario. Over time, Shirley and John lived in Debert, NS, Moncton, London and Toronto, but a constant in their lives was summers at their cottage at Oliphant, Ontario. Interment of Shirley's ashes will take place nearby, in Wiarton's Bayview Cemetery, this summer. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke (between Kipling and Islington Aves.) from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14.
