Touching photo of dog at Langley funeral goes viral - Abbotsford News

Saturday, March 02, 2019

Jeremy May, president of Elements Creation and Pre-planning & Burial in Willoughby. When staff from Elements attended the family home in Abbotsford, Sadie was there. "She sat with us as we made arrangements," said Jeremy May, Elements' president. That's when the family told of Sadie's deep connection to Andy and asked if the dog could attend the funeral which took place late last year in Langley. They adopted her at about eight weeks old. "She calmly walked in [to the funeral]. She did not have to be forced," May said. "She spent a few moments there and then she calmly walked out." When Sadie put her front feet up on Andy's casket, May took a photo for his widow. "She'll need this as part of her journey," he thought. He said the energy in the room was "amazing" when Sadie came in so calmly and said her farewell to her human. It's not the first time Elements has had pet requests, so far all for dogs. It's one of the few funeral firms that allows pets at services. "It's very clear that dogs do register our emotions and their own," he said. Recently the funeral home asked the family if it could put the picture on its social media because the staff found it so touching and was told yes. May said his widow has found comfort in having the keepsake photo. But then the image went viral. The funeral home has had calls from media around the world. "Literally wi...

Minister's response to Pickton victim family complaint against Coroner penned by service itself - Alaska Highway News

Saturday, March 02, 2019

They were told they had been cremated. Two funeral directors later told them the remains had received minimal heat. Coroner Owen Court had handled the disposition of the remains, taking them to Abbotsford funeral director Lawrence Little, who maintains all remains were handled with reverence. Little said the remains were so small that he applied some heat in a cremator to make them brittle after which they were put in an envelope, wrapped in a towel and broken up with a mallet. The Freys rejected this, saying Marnie's remains were mutilated. They filed numerous complaints, including one to Consumer Protection BC, which investigated the case. Other investigations were also done, including one by the RCMP. Crown prosecutors approved no charges. Unsatisfied with the findings, the family reached out to Eby. That correspondence was passed to Farnworth's office. After saying the Freys could bury their child, Farnworth said, "there are no further actions available." @font-face { font-family: "MS 明朝"; }@font-face { font-family: Cambria; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { } Let's block ads!

Online fundraiser to cover funeral costs of motorcyclist killed in collision - Abbotsford News

Saturday, March 02, 2019

An online fundraising campaign has been started to help cover the costs of the funeral for a motorcyclist who died in a collision in Abbotsford last week. Larry Nizio – whose nickname was "Lazer" – died in hospital after a crash with a pickup truck on Friday, Oct. 12. The collision took place just after 4:30 p.m. Police say both Nizio and the driver of the pickup were travelling south on Sumas Way and making a left turn onto Marshall Road when the crash took place in the intersection. Nizio, 37, was taken to hospital, but died of his injuries the following day. The 42-year-old driver of the pickup was not injured and remained on scene. The crash is still under investigation, and police say it will take some time to sort out all the circumstances, as they have received conflicting reports about what occurred. Nizio was the manager of the Abbotsford Central location of Craftsman Collision on South Fraser Way and the father of a five-year-old daughter and seven-year-old son. A GoFundMe account created by his friends is raising money for funeral costs, with any leftover funds going to his mom and kids. The...

Auntie Ellen.' Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre. White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate." She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program. "She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday. White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre. "I look out now and I see the many stars," he said. "I see how she impacted the community. I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity." Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
