More than 600 at funeral for NS boy who died in fire - CTV NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
Tuesday for four-month-old Winston Prouty and four-year-old Jayla Kennedy.
Monday's service opened with the Elton John song "Tiny Dancer," which Plaizier said was the boy's favourite song.
Rev. Mitchell DeWare, a 36-year-old Baptist minister who has been providing pastoral care to the family, said during prayer that the tragedy continues to take a heavy toll on the small communities of the families.
He called on the friends and family members to "lean in" to one another and offer mutual care and assistance as they go through various forms of pain, sadness, numbness, fear and anger.
"Heavenly Father, this tears the heart out. This last couple of weeks has shaken the lives of so many people in this room and those who can't be here today. We're hurting and some of us hurt very badly," he prayed.
Both DeWare and Plaizier said in interviews that they wished to convey a message of Christian hope amidst the sadness, while giving mourners the opportunity to grieve deeply.
"It's all the more important to remember your faith foundation when your world is crumbling beneath your feet," said Plaizier in an interview from his office prior to the service.
Plaizier has been providing pastoral care to Emma Kennedy and Phillip Prouty, who both managed to get out of the house after the fire started raging.
"The wounds are so raw, and everybody wants to help ... but the family aren't sure what they need now. There is still just a gaping wound," the minister said.
Kennedy and Prouty are the parents of four-month old Winston Prouty.
According to obituaries, Phillip Prouty is also the father of seven-year-old Mya Prouty, while Mya's mother is Tamera Smith. An obituary says Kennedy is the mother of four-year-old Jayla Kennedy, and Jayla's father is Joshua Renouf.
Plaizier described Mason Grant as a cousin to the other children, but couldn't provide complete details of the relationships.
A fire marshall's report on the cause of the blaze is expected within days with recommendations on fire safety, but police have ruled out foul play in the tragedy.
Fundraising efforts were continued Monday in several communities, with the latest at Dennis Point Cafe in Lower West Pubnico.
Restaurant owner Vernon D'Eon donated a day's worth of his restaurant's food sales to the families.
"It's a small community here. The Prouty family have been in our community for hundreds of years. ... These people have nothing, they have the clothes on their backs. Everything else went," he said.Let's block ads! (Why?)...

— City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...
'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Flyers and Marlboros. (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...
