Miss Me - But Let Me Go When I come to the end of the road, And the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom filled room, Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little, but not too long, And not with your head bowed low, Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me but let me go. For this is a journey that we all may take, And each must go alone, It's all part of the Master's plan, A step on the road to home, When you are lonely and sick at heart, Go to the friends we know, And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds, Miss me but let me go. 5/6/2008

Ahle Leslie 'Da' Ahle Cape Breton Post 9/2/2009 Leslie 'Da' Ahle, Toronto

Born in 21/02/1965 at Florence , Nova Scotia , Canada

It was a sad and heartbreaking day, when a call to home was made. A loving son and devoted dad passed away suddenly leaving his two beautiful girls and loving family with heartfilled memories.
A hard working man born and raised in Park Road, Florence spent his last few years in Toronto with his loving fiancé, Dianne and wonderful companion, Rusty.
As we all knew and loved Da he was a kind, gentle, loving man with such a warm heart. Dad was a fan of the Montreal Canadiens hockey team and had a great talent for cooking. You could always find him in the shop with his father ‘Poppy Leif’ both working hard but still finding time for dinner with their loving mother/wife (Amelda J. Ahle).
Even though Da loved being home in Cape Breton with family and friends, which he loved so very much, he decided to move to Toronto to better himself. He wasn’t always home in Cape Breton, though he wished, he was always only a phone call away. He was always there for us when we needed words of wisdom, advice, or even just to listen.
He was survived by his two loving daughters, Leslie Allison and Jenny Corrine (Matthew). His fiancé, Dianne and her daughter Elizabeth Jamieson. His sisters, Pauline, Chrissy (Keith) and Corrine. His brother Terry (Heather). He will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. He was predeceased by his mother Amelda J., his brother, Rickie and his sister, Debbie.
Visitation Thursday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in Francis Funeral Home, Sydney Mines. Mass of Christian Burial will take place Friday at 10 a.m. in St. Stephen Church, Florence, with Fr. Thomas John officiating. Burial in the parish cemetery.

Allen Arthur James Allen Sydney Post Record p 8 3/18/1940 LEITCHES CREEK MAN KILLED ON HIGHWAY ARTHUR JAMES ALLEN IS ACCIDENT VICTIM 47 Year Old Leitches Creek Man Dies In Hospital, Norman MacLean Injured In Puzzling Accident North Sydney, March 17 - Arthur James Allen, 47 year old Leitches Creek resident, met his death amidst puzzling circumstances on the North Sydney- Sydney highway about one hundred yards outside the town limits here last night. Norman MacLean, North Sydney resident, is in Hamilton Memorial Hospital with severe head injuries and shaking up suffered in the same accident. Clarence Brown, Victoria, Prince Edward Island, who had been visiting relatives here for the past few days is held in jail here by R.C.M.P. officers pending the result of an inquest which is to be held Wednesday afternoon. Donald J MacDonald, Sydney Mines, proceeding towards North Sydney, about 11:30 o’clock last night, observed the prostrate forms of the two men, Allen and MacLean, on the highway in time to avoid striking them and pulled wide. Brown, following the MacDonald car, apparently failed to observe the men in time and is believed to have struck and driven over them. Whether the men had been struck previously by another motorist and injured or not, or the reason for their presence on the roadway, have not been determined. Brown, immediately stopped his car to investigate and found the two men badly injured. R.C.M.P. officer LeRoy Roach of the North Sydney detachment investigated the accident while the men were immediately removed to Hamilton Memorial hospital by ambulance and automobile. Fractured Skull Allen failed to regain consciousness following his discovery on the road and died a few minutes after reaching hospital. Cause of his death is believed to have been a fractured skull and other head injuries. MacLean is recovering from effects of serious facial and head injuries, but is not considered in any danger. A preliminary hearing was held at Haggett’s Funeral Parlors here this afternoon conducted by Coroner, Chief of Police of Sydney Mines, and the inquest was adjourned until Wednesday afternoon at 3 pm in the North Sydney fire hall. Remains of the unfortunate victim were viewed by members of the jury before adjournment. Jurymen were Walter Robinson, John Fraser, Joseph Reid, Ronald Clarke, Joseph Pickup, Philip Young, George Edwards, Leo Brown, William Murphy, Ernest Ings, Lewis Serrroul and Harry Young. R.C.M.P officer Roach and Chief of police L A Clarck and Captain Harry Brown, father of the driver who is being held, were present at the hearing. Flying officer Kelly of the R.C.A.F. understood to be the only actual eyewitness at the time the Brown car figured in this affair, and other witnesses connected with the case are expected to testify at Wednesday’s inquest. North Sydney, March 17 - Many in the community were saddened by the tragic death of Arthur James Allen, 47, Leitches creek, who was a victim of an as yet unsolved highway accident here Saturday night. On Construction Job The well known war veteran, who died in hospital from the effects of a fractured skull, had been employed for the past several weeks as a constable at the scene of a local construction job. He was very well liked throughout the entire district. A native of Sydney Mines, he was the son of Mrs Alexis Allen and the late Alexander Allen, and had resided at Leitches Creek for the past seven years. A Great War veteran, he had been a member of the 36th Battery, Sydney Mines, serving for the entire period of hostilities. He was a member of the local branch, No. 19, of the Canadian Legion, B.E.S.L., and today the flag at the cenotaph was lowered to half mast as a token of respect.

"The Measure Of a Man"
Not - How did he die? But - How did he live?
Not - What did he gain? But - What did he give?
These are the things that measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.
Not - What was his station? But - had he a heart?
And - How did he play his God-given part?
Was he ever ready with a word of good cheer?
To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?
Not - What was his church? Not - What was his creed?
But - Had he befriended those really in need?
Not - What did the sketch in the newspaper say?
But - How many were sorry when he passed away?
These are the things that measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.

Almond Alice Almond CBP 11/12/2013 Alice Almond
Born: May 20th, 1938
Passed on: November 10th, 2013
Alice Almond, mother, mentor, fashionista, Red Hatter, tarabish player, champion baker and one of Cape Breton’s greatest advocates passed away Nov. 10, 2013, at the age of 75.
As her children we are heartbroken with her sudden passing and wish we could have had more time with her. We take comfort in the everyday memories we have of Mom and feel truly blessed to have grown up in the wonderful family that she and Dad made for us — creating memories that will stay with us for life.
Mom was born in Reserve Mines, and was the daughter of the late Walter and Veronica (Fahey) Finlayson.
She married our Dad, Michael, in 1960 and together they had 50 wonderful years of marriage before Dad passed away just two years ago. They lived in Boston shortly after marrying but moved back to Cape Breton in the late 60s to raise our family. They complemented each other well, socialized often and loved to go dancing almost as much as we enjoyed watching them together. Mom often said Dad was the wind beneath her wings that allowed her to fulfill her career and community aspirations.
Mom’s working life spanned more than 50 years during which time she held a number of increasingly senior administrative roles in the private and public sector before retiring just five years ago. For most people the countdown to retirement begins in your 50s — maybe 60s but Mom loved her work too much to quit. Undaunted by challenge, Mom spent the bulk of her career working for the federal government to boost employment in Cape Breton. She worked tirelessly for decades creating programs to train and retrain people, to assist individuals find meaningful work and with organizations to create opportunities for Cape Bretoners. She made a difference for so many people. For Mom, it wasn’t just a job — she loved to see people reach their potential and gave so many the confidence and support they needed at difficult times in their lives. We are and always will be incredibly proud of Mom and all that she accomplished in her professional career devoting her life to helping others.
She gave willingly and often to her community over the years volunteering for countless organizations including the Cape Breton Regional Municipality Task Force, the Association for Safer Cape Breton Communities, the Advisory Committee on Queen's Counsel Appointments, the IWK Hospital, Junior Achievement and was the founder of the Arlene MacNeil Trust Fund Foundation.
For her efforts she received many honours: First Lady of the Year, Beta Sigma Phi International, 1995; Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation; the Merit Award for Public Service Entrepreneurship; Award for Outstanding Commitment to Community Service from the Nova Scotia Director General and was one of the top 10 finalists for the Canadian Women’s Mentor Awards. In 1999, she was recognized in the Who’s Who of Canadian Women publication.
Despite a busy career and volunteer life, Mom had lots of hobbies and a wonderful circle of friends. She was the founder and an active member of the Cape Breton Chapter of the Red Hat Society, enjoyed a game of tarabish a couple of times a week at one of the local gathering spots, was a bit of a political junkie and in recent years took up gardening. She loved to entertain friends at home and turned her garage into a make shift hall complete with enough tables and chairs to host card tournaments and parties. She loved to shop and found the search for a bargain exhilarating — a passion she passed along to us.
She was well-known for her cooking and baking. Mom was always making something for someone — our family, the local clergy, a neighbour, a sick friend, or her fellow card players. She was one of these people who could take one gigantic bowl and then all of a sudden on the counter would appear four pies, three pans of squares and a batch of tea biscuits, all before most of us were out of bed. And she made the best pancakes hands down.
She was the most wonderful mother. She was always there when we needed advice or support dropping everything on a dime when someone called. She taught us to be selfless and to see the bigger picture. She was the ultimate optimist who believed attitude was everything. We often said that Mom was the champion of the underdog taking the side of the person most needing her support. She was strong-willed and opinionated (but in a nice way) and you never wondered where she stood on any issue. She could stretch a dollar and ran our home as efficiently as she managed her career. She regularly visited our relatives in Boston, loved cars (especially her current convertible), the Casino, travelling, American Idol and dark rum and cherished her dog Bella, her constant companion at home. She recently opened a part of her home to three international students who became instant friends to Mom.
She relished her role as Gramma and never hesitated to overstep boundaries and dish out advice. That’s why we loved her. Like she did with her own children, she challenged her grandchildren to work hard and give their best effort. She took personal pride in their academic and athletic accomplishments and always took their side in any debate with one of us. It was a rite of passage in our family that each of her granddaughters learned to make their first pie under her watchful eye.
Left to grieve are her five children, Charlene MacKinnon (Kevin), Halifax, Natalie Paris (James), Sydney, Deanna Gallaway (Dave), Halifax, Allison Donovan (Blair), Halifax, and Michael Almond (Krista) Halifax; eight grandchildren, Julia, Sara, Clara, Jarrod, Lauren, Taylor, Bradley and Julianne and one great-grandchild, Lucas. She is also survived by a sister, Nan Murphy (Arnold); a brother, Melvin Finlayson (Pearl); several nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.
Besides her parents and Dad, Mom was predeceased by her brother, Charlie Finlayson and grandson, Matthew Fitzgerald.
Visitation for Mom will be at T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. with a funeral mass Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013, at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Fatima Parish, Sydney River.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation.
We extend our sincerest thanks to Dr. Paul Murphy, Mom’s family doctor for many years, and to the doctors and nurses at the QE II Hospital in Halifax who provided exceptional care to Mom during her most recent stay.

Almond Michael Almond Cape Breton Post 3/26/2014 Michael Almond
Born In: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born: May 29th, 1934
Passed in: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: March 26th, 2011
For Dad
To be heard, without saying a word
To be hugged when we’re feeling blue,
To be understood, when we’re confused
So rare was a Dad like you.

Your loving smile, and gentle laugh,
Made all the difference in our day.
Your endless wisdom and timeless advice
Always helped us find our way.

In you there was no Equal,
You were in a class all your own
And because of all the Love you gave us,
We’ll never be alone.

Sadly missed and never forgotten

Charlene, Natalie, Deanna, Allison, Michael and Family
