from Joe O’Connor of the National Post,
Kurt Jory could feel his life slipping away, and he told his friend, Isaac Smeltzer, who was there beside him, holding his hand, that if he died on the ice at the Windsor Arena to tell his family that he loved them. He was worried about his mom and dad, his older brother, and younger sister. Jory did not know what they would do if he was just gone, without even having a chance to say goodbye.
The tall and gangly starting goaltender for the Brock University Badgers hockey team was sitting rink side at the Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre watching his teammates practice earlier this week. Jory appeared to be perfectly healthy save for his right arm, which was cradled by a blue sling.
