Chilliwack jazz funeral will help lay to rest your woes of 2018 - Chilliwack ProgressSaturday, March 02, 2019
This mix of delight and remorse is exactly why Christ Lutheran Church in Chilliwack is hosting Burying the Old Year: New Orleans Jazz Funeral for the year 2018 on Jan. 6.
It's a chance to have a little fun, "lay down" your regrets, reflect on the past year and get a fresh start on 2019 while a New Orleans Jazz band swings those old-time hymns.
"It's a way for us to come together as a community, sing some great music to help us mark the end of the old year and the beginning of the new one," said pastor Dean Andersen, who will be guiding the Creole Jazz Band and the crowd through the event.
"Those attending the ‘funeral' will have an opportunity to jot on a piece of paper - which will be kept private - some of the things they would like to bury with the old year. As the service progresses people will be invited to ‘lay down' their regrets by placing them in a symbolic memorial box that will be ‘buried' as the service closes."
Kevin Yeates, of the Creole Jazz Band explained, "The service has its roots in the New Orleans funeral tradition. In that region a band of jazz musicians accompany the mourners as they make their way from the family's home to the cemetery. As they make their way to the graveside t...

Funeral home allegedly backed out of agreement to cremate man when owner found out he was gay - Montreal GazetteTuesday, May 09, 2017
Legal shows Robert Huskey, left, and his husband John Zawadski. The Picayune Funeral HomeThis undated photo provided by Lambda Legal shows Robert Huskey, left, and his husband John Zawadski. NEW ORLEANS — A south Mississippi funeral home went back on an agreement to cremate an 86-year-old man after he died and paperwork showed he was gay, according to a lawsuit in state court.Picayune Funeral Home had told a nephew in Colorado that Robert Huskey’s body would be picked up and cremated for $1,795, and paperwork would be handled after his death, according to the lawsuit. But, it said, when the faxed-in form identified John Zawadski as Huskey’s husband, the nursing home where Huskey died was told the company did not “deal with their kind.”“It was devastating. It was like losing an arm and throwing it in the garbage,” said Zawadski, 83, who met Huskey in 1965 in Anaheim, California. The two lived together in California, Colorado, Wisconsin and Picayune, Mississippi, and married there on July 17, 2015, shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down laws against same-sex marriage.The funeral home’s court papers deny the lawsuit’s allegations. It “was filed without substantial justification, is frivolous, and is gro...

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
