When God saw you getting so tired
And cure was not to be
He put his arms around you
And whispered ‘Come to Me’
He didn’t like what you went through
And he finally gave you rest
His garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best
And when we knew you were sleeping
So peaceful and free from pain
We wouldn’t wish you back
To suffer that endless pain again
So as you take your final rest
Now we can say goodbye
Rest well Nancy, our sweet Sister

Sue McMillen (neé Susan Elizabeth O’Brien) passed away peacefully in her home on February 3, 2017, in her 73rd year. After a long illness borne with boundless grace and courage, Sue goes to her rest with all the love of her family and the many friends whose lives have been warmed by her gentle kindness.

Sue and Larry travelled the world, living in Pattaya, Thailand (where Dave was born); exotic Sarnia; Montreal (where Jen was born); Vancouver; Toronto; and Port Dickson, Malaysia, before settling on Stoney Lake in a home they literally built together (with the help of family and friends). She loved and was loved by the local community, joining the Hamilton Bay Bridge Club and becoming a member of the Warsaw Women’s Institute. Sue was a tireless supporter of others: whether volunteering for years at Jessie’s Place (a Centre for teenage moms), starting a women’s support group for local and ex-patriate women in Malaysia, being a fixture in the staff rooms of her children’s schools, or raising funds for the M.S. Society, she always did more for others than she did for herself. The world is a kinder, more compassionate place for her having been in it.

October 7th, 1967 – November 25th, 2016.
It is with overwhelming sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved James. A family man with a tremendous sense of humour, he was always there for those that needed him, even strangers he had met moments ago. He always made sure that those he cared about were themselves well cared for, giving generously of himself to make people feel a little better about their days. We will remember his tours of Toronto neighbourhoods he gave to family and friends, pointing out each house he had visited during his long career in the real estate business. He was had a profound sense of justice, which he used to make sure that things were right in his little corner of the world, through his involvement at several non-profits. James is survived by his wife, Cynthia, and two children, as well as by siblings, parents, many friends and colleagues, all of whom miss him dearly.

If you wish to honour James’s memory, try making the world a better place today. And please consider a donation to the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, an organization he cared about deeply: https://ccla.org/give/.

James, we will miss your hearty laugh, your passionate devotion to the causes you love and your always dynamic presence at the dinner table. We will always love you.
