I am standing upon the seashore
A ship at my side spreads
her white sails to the morning breeze
And starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength
And I stand to watch her until at length
She hangs like a speck of white cloud
Just where the sea and the sky
Come to mingle with each other.
Then someone at my side says:
"There, she is gone!"
"Gone where?"
"Gone from my sight, that's all."
She is just as large
in mast and hull and spar
As she was when she left my side
And she is just as able to bear her load
of living freight
To the place of her destination.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.
And just at the moment when someone
at my side says:
"There, she is gone!"
There are other eyes watching
her coming,
And other voices to take up
the glad shout,
"Hear she comes!"
And that is dying.
Victor Hugo, from Toilers of the Sea.

GALLAGHER, Raymond Joseph - October 22, 1930 - February 27, 2013 - It is with heavy hearts we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved Husband, Dad, Granddad and Brother, Raymond, surrounded by his family. Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 42 years, Elizabeth, his three children: daughter Catherine Gillingham (Maurice) and grandchildren Emily and Liam; son Christopher Gallagher (Jana) and grandson Patrick; son Anthony Gallagher (Erica) and granddaughter Erin. Also leaving to mourn his sisters: Rita McDonald (St. John's), Florence Haney (Camarillo, California), Genevieve Unger (Palm Coast, Florida). Ray was a caring and thoughtful son, a kind and generous brother and an uncle to many nieces and nephews. He adored his grandchildren and you could see his face light up from within whenever they said granddad or just gave him a smile. We will be sure to keep his memory alive with each of them. He was a devoted and loving husband and to say he adored Elizabeth would be an understatement. Mom, he loved you with every fiber of his being. Dad was such a jokester always wanting to get a good laugh out of someone and loved to be in on a good joke or prank. He had the hardiest laugh and kept his sense of humor right up until his final days. He was a friend to so many and had a way with people. For anyone who dare to step foot on a squash or tennis court against him knew of his fierce competitive spirit. Yet he could be so sweet and smiling while they played. The greatness of a man should not be measured in all of his wealth or accomplishments in life, but for the way in which his family views him. And all of us who knew him saw him as a sweet, loveable, caring and devoted man. We would like to extend heartfelt thanks to John Fully from Tender Loving Care. John and Dad had a little saying "cold hands, warm heart". Dr. Percy Crocker and staff for their exceptional care and kindness. Resting at Carnell's Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road with visitation on Saturday from 7 - 9 p.m. and Sunday from 2 - 4 and 7 - 9 p.m.. A Funeral Mass and celebration of Ray's life will be held on Monday, March 4, 2013, at 1:30 p.m. at The Basilica of St. John the Baptist. Interment to follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. In lieu of flowers a donation in Ray's memory may be made to the Ronald McDonald House, or a Charity of one's choice.

"… My friend, I'll say it clear, I'll state my case, of which I'm certain, I've lived a life that's full, I traveled each and every highway, And more, much more than this, I did it my way".  We love you dad. You will be missed.

GULLIVER, Harold (Harry) Joseph - Lifetime dairy farmer from Blackmarsh Road. Born January 8, 1926, slipped into the arms of Jesus in the presence of his loving family on Sunday, February 24, 2013 at St. Clare's Mercy Hospital, age 87 years. Dad is welcomed home to be reunited with his parents: William and Elizabeth (Codner) and is the last surviving member of his family to grace our lives. Predeceased by brothers: Jack, Sam, Pearce, Bill and Gerald and sisters: Edith, Margaret (Grant) and Ann Marie "Nan" Stephenson as well as honorary son John Gulliver and best friend Brian Casey. Leaving to mourn his great loss and to celebrate his legacy are his wife of 62 years, Margaret (Ryan), whom he adored, and his nine sons: Garry (Dianne), Craig (Annie), Keith (Dianne), Derek (Lynn), Terry, Perry, Glenn (Bonnie), Sean (Karen), Blair (Dana) and his only daughter Sherry (Roger Butler). Also, 19 grandchildren: Craig (Andrea), Chad (Melissa), Harry (Jenny), Troy (Andrea), April, Annie (Josh) Mandy (Garret), Mitchell, Sherra (Robert), Lindsay, Tyler, Liam, Parker, Jaxson, Raygan, Kolby, Kaleb, and his little buddy Evan, As well as great-grandchildren: Samantha, Cora, Nathan, Logan, James and two more on the waiting list and special sister-in-law Mary Gulliver. The Gulliver family is extensive with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who were blessed to have known dad. Harry absolutely loved dairy farming and cherished "The White Gold," as he would call it, which allowed him and mom to provide for the family. He truly was, "outstanding in his field," and his cattle were like his children. Away from the barn, dad had other routines that he adhered to religiously such as listening to open line, reading The Telegram daily, watching the nightly news, Land and Sea, city council meetings, and Hockey Night in Canada (especially joyous when Montreal would lose). Dad loved a good yarn too. As a young boy, dad grew up on a farm on Craigmillar Avenue where St. Mary's Church is located today. Most days before he would hoof it to Holy Cross School on Patrick Street, he would walk along Craigmillar Avenue delivering bottles of milk to his customers. Many a story he told us of these experiences. In 1946, his father bought the property on Blackmarsh Road as they made the move from Craigmillar Avenue. Dad and his brother Gerald would go on to set up two separate dairy farms on the Gulliver property which continued for over 60 years. The farm on Blackmarsh Road was not just a family farm but a neighborhood farm, as a lifetime of memories were gained by many playing baseball in the field, spotlight at night, or baling hay in the summer. It really was the greatest life in the world! Special mention to the staff of the dialysis unit at St. Clare's, Dr. Noel Brown for a lifetime of care, and to our mom, the family pillar. Resting at Caul's Funeral Home on LeMarchant Road. Visitation on Tuesday and Wednesday from 2 p.m. - 9 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will take place at St. Teresa's Parish, Mundy Pond Road on Thursday February 28, 2013 at 11 a.m. Interment to follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.

Wright. Alec was born on September 30, 1922 in St. John's. Baptized Aloysius Gonzaga Henley, Alec was the ninth of the nine Henley boys to be educated at St. Bonaventure's College. In 1944 he started his own insurance and employee benefits consulting business in which he was actively involved until age 89. He earned his Chartered Life Underwriters CLU designation in 1953. Over the decades the business evolved into the Alec. G. Henley Group, now under the leadership of his son, Brian. He had many other business interests including being a founding shareholder and founding Chairman & CEO of Avalon Cablevision Ltd. Alec actively contributed to his community and his Church throughout his life. He was a founding member of the Progressive Conservative Party of Newfoundland and Labrador in 1948, with which he was active for decades. He was elected to St. John's City Council in 1955, at age 32, and served two terms. He was a founding member of the St. John's Jaycees and a founding member of the Society for the Care of Crippled Children. Alec served as a member and as Chairman of the Board of the St. John's Children's Rehabilitation Centre until it closed. He chaired the Royal Commission on Regional Government for the St. John's Urban Region (the 1976 "Henley Royal Commission"), which first proposed both the Harbour Arterial Road, the Crosstown Arterial Road and the Outer Ring Road. Alec was active in the Royal St. John's Regatta Committee for over 65 years, first as an oarsman and then as a coxswain. He became a member of the Regatta Committee in 1944, at age 22, a position he held until his death as a Honourary Life Member. He was inducted into the Royal St. John's Regatta Hall of Fame in 1997. He donated the Henley Mens' rings in 1982 for breaking the 9 minute mark and the Womens' rings for breaking the 4:30 in 1989. The company also donated two racing shells to the Regatta: the "Henley" in and the "Catherine M". Alec also chaired the organizing committee for the 1972 Men's Brier Curling Championships in St. John's, was Vice Chairman of the 1977 Canada Summer Games Committee, a Past-President of Bally Haly Golf and Country Club and a past director of the Royal Newfoundland Yacht Club. Alec's contribution to his church involved numerous roles including Chairman of the St. John's Roman Catholic School Board. He was very proud to serve as Chairman of the 200th Anniversary Celebrations of the Archdiocese of St. John's through which he chaired the Committee responsible for the 1984 visit of Pope John Paul II, a role which gave him tremendous satisfaction. In 1985 he was honoured by Pope John Paul II and appointed a Knight of the Order of St Gregory (KSG). Alec was active in the St. Bon's Old Boys Association for many years. He helped raise funds for the St. Bon's Forum reconstruction after a fire and was a major contributor to the re-establishment of St. Bonaventure's College in 1999. He contributed to the restoration of the Chapel of the school in 2003 through his research into and funding of replicas of the original stained glass windows. St. Bonaventure's College honoured him in 2009 by appointing him its first Alumnus of the Year. Alec was, however, first and foremost a devoted family man and a devout Roman Catholic. Married for 64 years, his wife Catherine was his greatest love. His greatest joys in life were his children and his grandchildren, of whom he was very proud. He could be demanding of himself and of those around him but he also loved "a bit of fun". He lived life to the fullest whether at home, at work or in the community. He lived his faith, day in and day out. He was generous to those in need both at home and abroad without fanfare. His life is a testament to his belief that "from those who have much, much is expected." The family wishes to acknowledge the love, professional care and compassion provided by all of the caregivers who shared his journey over the last eighteen months, especially Amanda, Kim, Helen, Randy and Joan. You cared for Dad like he was one of your own family. Visitation will take place at Carnell's Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road, on Saturday, February 23 and Sunday, February 24 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Pius X on Monday, February 25, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. Flowers are gratefully accepted or please make a donation in Alec's memory to the St. Bonaventure's College Bursary Fund.

Alice was highly respected as one of the province's storytellers and over the past 25 years has told stories at festivals and special heritage events. She has been interviewed by international folklorists and her storytelling has been documented in a couple of films. Alice credits her gift of storytelling to her grandmother Mary (Strang) McCarthy. Her grandmother retold the stories she had been told by an elderly aunt, who was born in Lawn around 1820. These stories have been passed on orally in our family for about 175 years. In 1991 some of these stories were preserved in a book which Alice co-wrote with her brother Michael McCarthy "Fables, Fairies & Folklore of Nfld." Alice went on to co-author two more books with Mike "Ghost Stories from Newfoundland Folklore and Yuletide Yarns." He was a well-known author in his own rite and predeceased her in 2005. While she had never been further than Grand Falls in the first 62 years of her life, she made up for it in the last 23 years with trips to Australia, Costa Rica, France, Hawaii, Ireland, Italy, Medjugorge, and numerous trips across Canada and to the United States. Every one of these trips created great fodder for her own stories such as "How I Stopped the Trains in Australia". In addition to her storytelling, Alice is known in her community for her caring and generosity which were often demonstrated by a specially made tray of cream puffs or a plate of fudge or caretaking for the sick and elderly. As well as being Mom and Grandma, she was known to others as "Ao", "Abbo" or Aunt Alice and received the designation of "Grandma Alice the Great" by one of her great-grandchildren. She will be sadly missed but will forever stay alive in our hearts and memories as her stories continue to be retold.Resting at Maher's Funeral Home with visitation on Friday, March 1st from 1-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m; Saturday, March 2nd from 1-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m.; and Sunday, March 3rd from 2-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Flowers or donations gratefully accepted.

RYAN (nee Hynes), Lydia Marie - June 25, 1939 - February 20, 2013
She held our tiny, fragile hands when we first entered this world, and we, her two daughters, along with her baby sister, held her gentle, loving hands as she left. Our Mom raised us to be compassionate, gentle, optimistic, confident, courageous women. We have respect, faith, enthusiasm, tolerance, and strength because of our role model, Mom, who truly 'lived' her life to the fullest. Her zest for life, and all of its adventures, made those fortunate enough to spend time with her yearn to do more, see more, and experience more. She made life an adventure, which she willingly shared with those who could keep up with her. To her family, she was the epitome of pure, unconditional love. She was lovingly and gently taken to Heaven by the angels who passed before her: her father and mother Edward and Bridget Hynes, her brother and sister-in-law John Will and Angie, her mother and father-in-law, Mary Ann and William Ryan; and her son-in-law, Kenneth Hickey. She leaves beautiful memories for her heartbroken family: husband John; daughters: Darlene (Jean-Claude Derible) and Rolanda; grandchildren: Chantelle (David Keen), Declan, and Andrew; great-grandchildren, Riley and Noah; sister and companion adventure-seeker, Sharon; brothers: Edward (Marg), Reg (Mary), and Hughie (Anna); Uncle, Willie Hynes; best friend, Margaret Coffey; and attentive friends and care-givers, Berkley Reynolds, George Ebsary, and Andrew Williams. Mom will be dearly missed by this circle of love, as well as a much larger circle of extended family and friends both in NL and in other parts of North America. While we weep for our loss, the mere mention of her name will forever bring a smile to every person she ever encountered on her journey through life. She was truly 'Beautiful'. To share memories of her life, you may visit Caul's Funeral Home, LeMarchant Road, on Saturday, February 23rd or Sunday, February 24th, from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Funeral to be held at St. Patrick's Church, Patrick Street, at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, February 25th.

Mom, we will love you and miss you forever. Until you come to take our hands once again, to bring us home with you, you will live on in a sacred place in our hearts. With all our sincere gratitude for all you have given us, we say, Thank-You. Darlene and Rolanda.
