miss you, ed

Honest Ed Mirvish (1914-2007)

It's one of those moments that I miss my great aunt Dodie. Dodie introduced me, at the age of three, to the city of Toronto and I fell in love. With Dodie I experienced all the glories of the city, including riding the swans at Centre Island, going through the Bat Cave at the ROM, watching matinees at the Uptown, and feeding the pigeons at Queen's Park. For those of you who understand, she was my Dumbledore.

And she probably would have wanted to attend the funeral. And I would have had someone to go with.
