(Supplied)SASwpLyndon Friesen, president of Bolt FM’s parent company, Golden West Radio, travelled from Manitoba to attend Thursday’s service with other employees. Friesen called Bieber’s death “tragic” and said it had a huge impact on those who work there.“He was a critical piece to the station,” Friesen said in an interview.Maureen Johnson, who knows Bieber’s mother and has a child Bieber’s age, wore a jersey to the service. She said she attended the funeral to show support not only for Bieber’s family, but “to show strong support for the kids in the hospital.”The collision between the Broncos bus and a semi-trailer took place last Friday around 5 p.m. on Highway 35 about 30 kilometres north of Tisdale as the Broncos travelled to Nipawin from Humboldt in a Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) semifinal series against the Nipawin Hawks.

After, he would volunteer with the high school kids — teaching them basketball, football, he taught the girls flag football — he had a real passion for that.“Tyler was rarely at home between running from work to volunteer jobs,” she said. “He wasn’t in it for the money, he’d get paid extra for being an announcer, but he’d drop that to go be a volunteer coach instead.”In a post on Facebook, his brother Brandon said, “I don’t know what to do or say right now but I know one thing is you will always be true in my heart, RIP my sweet brother, I miss you and love you dearly.”In addition to several services across Western Canada scheduled for the coming days, three other funerals are set to take place in Humboldt.A celebration of life has been announced for Jacob Leicht, 19, on Friday at 10 a.m. at the Elgar Petersen Arena.

Being in the comfort of my own home.“I mean, I’m proof [that it works].”Saiphoo says now that she has access to the drug, all she wants to do is share it with people like Anaquod.“I have an infusion coming up on Saturday,” she said. “If I could just give her that infusion I would gladly do it, because I know it would help.”Let's block ads!
