(1949 – 2015)

Hard to believe. Don’t quite believe.

It has been a year.

A year to mourn. To feel. To struggle. To come to grips with the loss.

A year to reflect on the singular, extraordinary talent.
The colour. The wit. The genius.

A year to be grateful for having shared a piece of the journey.
The moments. The memories. The friendships.

A year to accept the challenge to build a legacy.
To embrace the opportunity to find ways to inspire;
to recognize courage, commitment and generosity;
and to support unique talent wherever and however we find it.

In Toller’s name.

    I met Toller in 1969 at the Town of Mount Royal Summer Skating School. He was being coached By Eva Vasek at the time. I later saw him at our carnival,in Dundas. He was our guest skater . It was thrilling having him skate for us. I remember he had 3 or 4 different programs and he let us know which one he was going to skate to seconds before he took the ice. It is funny now ,but at the time people were a bit rattled.

    I own 4 Toller originals. I was fortunate to have had Toller in my home to see them displayed. I trained on ice with Toller in Lake Placid. I would so love to be involved with the new artistic skating school for elite skaters. I was us national champion so I know skating at a high level. I am the ultimate motivator.

    I love Tollers spirit and daring. He seemed to be trying his darnedest to leave this world with as much of his creativeness, passion and fun before he had to leave. He was literally running for his life, working night and day. His inspiration will be with us always in his works and skating memories.
