Wallin Brothers Turned To Hockey

from the National Post,
The script doesn't change much across Canada, whether it's six Sutters growing up in Viking, Alta., the Gretzky boys in Brantford, Ont., or the three Wallin brothers of North Battleford, Sask. ...And the script? Well, the Wallins woke up one morning in April of 1994 and learned in a hurry that things don't always go the way you thought they might. "My dad's death was ruled a suicide," Jesse, 28, said yesterday from Red Deer. "But ... he died of a mental illness. He was a victim no different than anyone with cancer. It's hard for people to understand that, but it wasn't like my dad woke up one day and decided he'd had enough."
