Gary Manning


  Gary left us at the dawn, peacefully, but before I could hold him once more and say 'Goodbye, My Love' and  'Thank you' with a last kiss. Life with him holds some of my most cherished memories; laughter and working together as journalists and writers, memorable holidays in Maine and on the Fundy Coast, sharing theatre, concerts and art galleries, quiet Sundays with Chai latte and a Bach CD. He became a loving father to all our cats, who brought him joy. He supported my dual careers with enthusiasm and happiness. Before we married, Gary was my editor and a friend; a very good basis for a loving relationship. From the age of 15 he wanted only to be a journalist, believing giving people the best information could help them make good personal decisions. From his rookie reporter days in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, he became City Editor in Sarnia and a respected Managing Editor in Cornwall, Guelph, Woodstock and Welland, Ontario. To paraphrase the Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas - "Go now, my love, gently into that good night, mind not the dying of the light, for you brought light to many." Know all our cats are there to welcome you and whatever path you now tread they walk with their soft paws on that path with you.
