Rolf BauTuesday, May 9, 2017
Pamela, Madison and Sydney, who will forever hold him close in their hearts. He is also survived by his two brothers, whom he loved dearly - Willi (Gisela) and Bruno (Inge) and their extended family in Germany. Rolf has left behind the love of his life, Elfriede, who was his soul mate and pillar of strength over the years. They were fortunate enough to have celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary on April 25, 2017; which is a testament to their unconditional love. Up until his very last day, Rolf was content, holding Elfriede's hand tenderly in the nursing home. Some of our fondest family memories of Rolf were up at his cottage in Sprucedale, ON, where he was happiest. Because of this, we are honoring his wishes to have a private family memorial only (not open to the public) and his ashes will be spread at the cottage on Doe Lake. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate to a charity of your choosing in Rolf's memory. We love you dad - now, forever and always. You will live on in all of our hearts.

‘All of this is your fault,’ Jaxon Joseph’s mother tells Sidhu - Barrhead LeaderSaturday, March 2, 2019
With no information about Jaxon's condition, the Joseph family, including his sister Taylor, packed their bags and drove to Saskatchewan.
"I hyperventilated all the way to Lloydminster," Chris said.
The family had heard their 20-year-old son had been airlifted to a hospital, but they had no certainty or answers as they drove through the night on the cold winter Saskatchewan highways.
"The minutes and hours of not knowing were the hardest part," Chris said.
They arrived in Saskatoon in the early hours of the morning. The next day, Chris and Taylor went to identify the body of a young man who may have been Jaxon. They searched the body for any familiar signs of their loved one but couldn't provide a positive ID.
It wasn't until Chris went to visit three surviving victims that he realized his son had not been transported to the hospital.
"Right there, that was my moment – the moment that I realized that my son was dead, that he was never taken to the hospital, that his body was still laying on the cold ground with a blanket over his face," he said.
"I now had to go back to the waiting room and confirm the worst news of our lives to our family."
The next day, the Joseph family went to the funeral home to identify Jaxon's body. There were 14 victims to be identified and only six rooms available, so families had to identify their sons in shifts.
"They came back different. They were changed forever and I knew I would be, too."
Today, Chris still carries Jaxon's socks, which he took off his son's feet that day at the funeral home – a decision he says was inspired by the family of fellow Broncos player Stephen Wack, who took a lock of his hair.
"You chose to gamble at that intersection and you lost. And worse yet, we all lost," he told Sidhu.
"I hope some day you can find peace. I hope some day I can find forgiveness."

"That's the kind of guy he was, you know? Here's an 82-year-old man, driving from Saskatoon in this cold snap to to play a gig up in Waskesiu. That says it all."Drouin learned to play the piano by ear and carved out an audience by relentlessly playing concerts for decades."He would call three months before a show and ask how tickets were," he said. "He's the only musician who would do that. He knew that in order to play at The Bassment again, he had to have those seats full."Long time jazz musician Maurice Drouin died suddenly over the weekend.
