Sorry to hear about the passing of John Foisy a few weeks ago. As kids we grew up a few houses from each other on Galt street, having a couple of brothers myself it seems we were always fighting with each other or being the best of friends. In John's case it was the Rhyme... Fuzzy Was He had no hair. it could be the catalyst for a fight or the prelude to a lot of fun. As we grew older naturally we grew apart and lost touch. I guess it's been over 20 years since I last spoke with him, but it still saddens me to hear of people so young passing on.

This site is an awesome collection of CKGM memorabilia. Sound clips from DJ's dating back through the 60's & 70's. Includes a clip from the 1969 Expo vs. Philadephia - bottom of the 9th inning where Bill Stoneman threw his no-hitter.
we just finished Instant Star which will be given a "sneak peek " this evening with the broadcast of the first 2 episodes of "Instant Star" right after Canadian Idol. the young lady who stars in it is a tremendous talent and i would recommend checking it out.
i might be a little biased because i worked on it, but none the less, i think its worth checking out and hopefully you enjoy it support our battered independant film & television industry. we're taking a kicking fromall the us produced shows
Hi. Gumma and I went to Verdun High School together and graduated 1969-1970. She was one of my bridesmaids in 1973. If anyone knows how I could get in touch with her or her brother Young, would be most happy. Thanks you. Heather Ryan (now living in Lasalle) O:-)

To all old friends in Verdun, it is with great sadness to let you know that Jack passed away in January 2004 of a heart attack. Jack and I (Beverly Herman) were married for 43 years and had two children, Judi and John. We all live in the Cobourg, Ontario area now and have done so since 1970. We still miss Verdun and go back periodically to visit the remaining family members. I know Jack had a lot of friends from the island and the river and thought you would like to know of his passing. Would love to hear from some of you anytime. Sincerely Beverly Brayton
