10 Years Gone....Too Soon!
"I BUILT A SHIP...CONTINUE SAILING IT"
Not a day goes by when you're not in my
thoughts, I remember all the wonderful things
about you, Your compassion for others, yours
stern words of wisdom, Your leadership quali-
ties, These were the qualities I admired most in
you that made me want to be just like you.
Not a day goes by when I don't long to hear
your voice again.
Just to hear you say "How are your going Davy"
But you know something, I've got so many pre-
cious memories of you, Sometimes it's like
you're right here with me.
I love you dad. Thank you for being a wonder-
ful father and friend and helping me to be the
man I am today.
From your loving son Davy Boodoosingh
Dad- Never Forgotten
You closed your eyes on
February 18th, 2004
Your last breathe was so
Intense and painful.
To see you go, no one knows
how hard that was to accept.
We watched you slip away day by day,
Yet in vain nothing we could say or do to Stop
the Lord from taking you!
You had to go we know for sure.
But why now?
Why could you not have waited a little longer,
The time spent with you was so short,
Only God knows why he wanted you!
But did he not know that we needed you
more than him?
We could never say goodbye,
Each day the pain doesn't seem to stop,
I ask the Lord to give me strength so that one
day I can see you again.
By Lisa Boodoosingh- Sookoo
Days go by, and each one seems longer than the
one before, without you.
How much longer would I have to ask and
grieve, for I am without you.
Eternity seems like such a long time and
without you it is even longer,
Why can't you be with us?
Why couldn't you stay?
Questions which I will have a hard time
Understanding even though I have the answers,
As you slowly slipped away, I tired to be strong
but your resonating life made it so hard.
People offer their sympathy and talk about you
but sometimes that is not enough....
especially when I think that I have to live the
rest of my life without you.
All of my life you have been there,
not once was your absence noted but
instead your hard work applauded.
God may have had a better plan for you,
but although they comforting though,
I still miss you and will continue to until the
end of time or when I am with you.

Our Loving Dad

LEVERKUSEN---Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice
as Paris Saint-Germain all but booked its place in
the Champions League quarterfinals with a 4-0
away rout of 10-man Bayer Leverkusen yesterday.
Blaise Matuidi got the visitors off to a flying start
in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie by scoring in
the third minute.
Ibrahimovic made it 2-0 from a penalty in the 39th,
after Emir Spahic hauled down Ezequiel Lavezzi, and
effectively killed the game three minutes later when
he rifled a shot from outside the penalty area inside
the top far corner.
Leverkusen had Spahic sent off for a second yellow
card in the 59th, and Paris substitute Yohan Cabaye
completed the rout in the 88th.
The result looks almost certain to end Leverkusen s
hopes of reaching the quarterfinals for the first time
since 2002, with a mountain to climb in the second
leg in Paris on March 12.
No team has recovered from 4-0 down in a two-
legged Champions League tie.
Leverkusen seemed to be feeling the effect of losing
five of its last seven games. The home side looked
nervous from the start, perhaps mindful of losing 5-
0 to Manchester United in its previous game at home
in the competition.
Leverkusen captain Simon Rolfes lost the ball to
Matuidi, who combined with Ibrahimovic and Marco
Verratti before tucking the latter s return pass inside
the far post.
Paris was unbeaten in its previous seven away games,
with five of those ending in victory, and the visitors
exuded confidence as the home side struggled to

MANCHESTER---Barcelona outclassed 10-man Man-
chester City in the Champions League round of 16
yesterday, with Lionel Messi netting from the penalty
spot in a 2-0 first-leg victory.
The Argentina forward scored his 25th goal in 27
matches in the 54th minute, but despite its man
advantage, Barca couldn t score again until the 90th
through Dani Alves.
"We had a point to prove, and we did it very well,"
Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas said, referring to
previous criticism of the team.
It was an unsettling introduction to the knockout
phase of the competition for City, with Barcelona s
poise and panache enabling the four-time European
champions to remain in near-complete control against
England s emerging force.
City had managed to repel the waves of attacks by
the Spanish champions until the start of the second
half when Martin Demichelis couldn t keep up with
the speedy Messi, dragging down his fellow Argentine
and conceding the penalty.
Even after Messi made it 11 goals in 11 games since
returning from injury, City managed to unsettle
Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes more than had it
with a full complement of players.
But City couldn t grab an equaliser against the run
of play, and Barcelona ensured it would win in Man-
chester for the first time when Dani Alves successfully
completed a one-two with substitute Neymar to score
the team s 113th goal of the season.
Barcelona s victory margin wasn t as great as the
one secured by Paris Saint-Germain in the night s
other first-leg. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice as
Bayer Leverkusen, like City, was reduced to 10 men---
and beaten 4-0.
City, playing in the third tier of English football 15
years ago, was in unknown territory at the Etihad.
Against a team that has won the competition three
times in the last eight years alone, City was
in the knockout phase for the first time and playing
the Catalan giants for the first time in a competi-
It showed, with Manuel Pellegrini s side struggling
from the start to disrupt the visitors flowing passing
City struggled to get a touch of the ball in the early
stages. But the hosts emerged unscathed from its hes-
itant start and produced the first meaningful shot of
the match after 25 minutes when Alvaro Negredo
curled the ball at Valdes after a dithering defense failed
to clear. (AP)
