Steven Burns and his three sons wore yellow ties and placed four yellow roses onto one of the caskets belonging to Fredericton police Constables Robb Costello and Sara Burns - it was his wife's favourite colour and one of the many quirks he mentioned in his final goodbye to her."Sara has always been my hero and my angel," he said during his eulogy at the regimental funeral Saturday in the New Brunswick capital.

Nova Scotia, a Syrian refugee family in New Brunswick was thankful that they escaped from a house fire alive. All eight members of the Bda family managed to safely exit their home in Fredericton on Saturday morning before their home was destroyed. Fredericton Fire Department platoon captain Mike Mizner said the house was completely engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived around 11 a.m. Midya Bda, the mother of the family, thanked the community for stepping in to help. "We are very happy that everybody's safe," Bda told CTV Atlantic through an interpreter. "My children are OK, no harm for them, and we are very, very thankful for our community, for the Multicultural Association of Fredericton," she added. The Fredericton Multicultural Association has already helped the family find a temporary home, but their belongings were incinerated. "We came outside our home with nothing so any donations are welcome," Bda said. The multicultural association is accepting donations of clothing and food. Just last Tuesday, seven children from a family of Syrian refugees died in a fast-moving fire in Halifax, N.S. Thousands attended their funeral on Saturday. Kawthar Barho, who moved to Canada with her family 18 months ago, was at that ceremony for her children. Her husband, Ebraheim Barho, remains in hospital with severe burns. Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Thursday, April 12, 2018

A New Brunswick woodworker has designed a “do-it-yourself” casket kit to alleviate funeral costs.Woodworker Jeremy Burrill of Fredericton says he is a no-nonsense kind of guy, which is likely why his business mantra sounds like it was taken straight from an old-fashioned country song. “Just bury me in a pine box,” said Burrill, who owns the Fiddlehead Casket Co.Story continues belowREAD MORE: Woman pulls casket for miles for mental health awarenessBurrill said he wanted to give people a simpler, cheaper and more environmentally friendly option for their end of life send offs. He started handcrafting old-fashioned pine box coffins from his workshop in Fredericton, kind of like the ones used in the old west.“They are fastened with wooden dowels so there are no screws and no metal or anything in it,” Burrill said.The caskets sell for roughly $700 and even the bed lining is made of wood shavings. So so every part of the coffin is biodegradable. Over time, Burrill says, those who use the caskets will “just go back to the earth.”Since starting his coffin business about two years ago, Burrill has sold only his envi...
