BUGEAUD, Tammy (née BERDAY) (1963-2006)
On Friday evening, October 13, 2006, my lovely and loving wife Tammy BUGEAUD (née BERDAY) suddenly passed away. She is going to carry on through our wonderful young boys, Tyler and Chase, in whom she instilled the caring and loving for other people that her parents, Milt and Elaine BERDAY of North Portal, Saskatchewan., helped instill in her. She's gone too young, leaving our family, including her parents, her loving brother Doug BERDAY and his partner Dianna SCHWAB, as well as relatives and extended family including Brian and Donna (née BERDAY) COLLISON's family, Rob and Angie BERDAY's family, David and Lori (née BERDAY) DUSKE's family, Dick and Tania BERDAY, David and Linda JONES' family, and her numerous Friends, to mourn her passing and cherish the time we spent with her. Tammy was born in Estevan, Saskatchewan, and raised on the family farm near North Portal. As a girl she was interested in sports, especially figure skating and curling. She was a hairdresser in early adulthood. We met 25 years ago and have been together all that time, being married the last 18 years. At first we lived together in Kindersley. We decided to pursue careers. We moved to Saskatoon for university, her mostly working until I was done. When we moved to Calgary she took an accounting program. She never became an accountant; our first boy, Tyler, came along and Tammy did what she was put here to do, love people and raise our children. Tammy threw herself into our boys' lives and regularly volunteered for their activities from preschool up. If Tammy knew you, she cared about you. She knew your spouse's name, your children's names and usually your birthday and anniversary, where you met your spouse and if people in your family were celebrating successes or suffering pain she knew, she remembered and she cared. Tammy cared about people and, in turn, people cared about her. In the past few years, always with our boys and often with relatives and Friends, we spent a great deal of time together on holidays in Hawaii, Mexico, Florida, California, and other places including most recently our summer condo in Kelowna where we shared our best summer. These memories are going to help the rest of us. Gary BUGEAUD A Celebration of Life will be held at Westside King's Church (3939 69 Street S.W.) on Friday October 20, 2006 at 1: 30 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com In living memory of Tammy BUGEAUD, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McInnis and Holloway Funeral Homes Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Telephone: (403) 243-8200.

WAND, Clarence (August 29, 1924-January 14, 2005)
I'm thinking of all of you, for my time on earth is o'er And although my body is gone from this earth, I'll be with you evermore. I am at home among the roses... with sunflowers that sway in the breeze Where raspberries hang thick from their canes and robins build nests in tall trees. The soil is rich and giving and my hands once again grow strong As I sow the seeds in abundance -labour joyously in the sun. Each day I count my blessings for the wonderful life I have known. And my spirit walks with you always... as Heaven becomes my new home. Hold close to my dear wife, as she is precious as pearls I rejoice in her love and goodness... as I leave her behind in your world. I know your hearts are heavy..... for my presence on earth you do miss But think of me with laughter.... as I brush your face with a kiss. For my final act was over when my Saviour called to me All my cares were washed away and my tired body freed. Remember I'll always be with you.... and on days when you're lonely or blue You will feel my hand on your shoulder and know I am walking with you. Written by Deanna COLLRIN Fondly remembered by your family, Friends and neighbours.

Osborne COLSON, Skating Coach (1916-2006)
Eccentric and prickly, the 'Jurassic Park' of skating won prewar national titles, directed Barbara Ann Scott's professional tour and coached a parade of top-notch competitors
By Beverley SMITH, Page S7
Toronto -- Osborne COLSON was the last of an era, an old figure-skating world of blueblood families, of impeccable manners and proper etiquette. "He stood alone in an era of figure skating that has long gone," said Toller CRANSTON. "He was the Jurassic Park of the Barbara Ann SCOTT era."
Mr. COLSON's father, Henry, was one of the founders of the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club, an institution that was like mecca for the skater who won the 1936 and 1937 Canadian men's championships.
His cousin, Cecil SMITH, finished second to Sonja Henie at the 1930 world championship. Mr. COLSON was a walking history book of figure skating. He lived it. He met Ms. Henie at a skating show in Toronto. He directed and choreographed Barbara Ann SCOTT's Canadian professional tour in the early 1950s. He took Donald JACKSON under his wing when he became a professional skater during the 1960s. "His great accomplishment was producing some of the most unique skaters in history," Mr. CRANSTON said. "He moulded the minds of splendidly artistic people who went on to even greater heights than he."
All this from a Toronto boy, who joined the Dominion Bank in 1935 as the youngest teller in its history. According to a Toronto Cricket Club history book, "both bank and his father thought Osborne was a good prospect for promotion with an ideal future in finance."
Mr. COLSON earned $32 a week. He took a temporary leave of absence when he landed a $500-a-week, 20-week contract as the star of Ice Follies. He never returned.
Through his Ice Follies adventure, he met and worked with Joan Crawford and Jimmy Stewart. Later, he was introduced to stars such as Boris Karloff, Mickey Rooney, Ronald Reagan and Judy Garland.
He was also one of the true eccentrics of the sport. Mr. COLSON rarely invited anyone to his Toronto apartment, not even his 60-year friend, Ellen BURKA, who had been Mr. CRANSTON's coach. He rarely let anyone inside his private life, but then maybe he was "a sphinx without a secret," Mr. CRANSTON said.
Ms. BURKA said skating was his life. He went to every little competition. He'd drive all over the city and teach at six different rinks every day until, at 75, he finally settled at the cricket club. For all that, he still worked at different rinks. This was risky business, because he was widely known as a rather erratic driver.
Except for his red cap, Mr. COLSON dressed conservatively. Mr. CRANSTON, however, believes he really wanted to be rather baroque. "He was always after my clothes. Many, many times I gave him things that he liked. COLSON didn't quite have the guts to be flamboyant, yet he admired it in others. He always wanted my coats."
Once, when Mr. COLSON and Ms. BURKA visited Mr. CRANSTON at his Toronto home, the coach took one look at the skating outfits in a closet, and began to try them on. "They were all his crazy costumes from the '70s -- all glitter," Ms. BURKA said.
He tried on a turquoise number, the most glittery of them all, waltzed into the room and began to dance. "We had a party," she said, laughing.
He had lots of frank opinions on many subjects. It was not something he developed in later life. The legendary coach Gus LUSSI taught Mr. COLSON for six years and once said: "He was a very well-behaved child with good discipline, although he was rather an opinionated boy. He had unique views and ideas about everything."
It's no surprise that Mr. CRANSTON calls him "madly eccentric." But he adds that the coach was really quite funny "as long as you were out of range." He could be prickly. Ms. BURKA calls him mean. Mr. CRANSTON refers to him as the "red-hot stinger." People feared him, wondering if they'd be next. Few escaped.
"At any second of the day or night, he could stick you with a [verbal] sword that would leave you flat on the ground," Mr. CRANSTON said. "One might say he was difficult."
Ms. BURKA referred to him as her "best friend and loving enemy."
"Everybody knew it. I got used to it," she said. "In the beginning, he would call me the most horrible names. I talked back to him, then we had a fight. Then, of course, we didn't look at each other and sat in the coffee shop back to back."
One of these fights lasted six months, another three months. Ms. BURKA also knew how to push his buttons. When she saw he was in a bad mood, she'd provoke him further. "Did I ever get it."
At the very least, Mr. COLSON kept her on her toes, she said. She always arrived at the rink well dressed with her hair perfectly coiffed, because if she didn't, "I got hell."
Finally, about 15 years ago, Mr. COLSON approached Ms. BURKA and told her: "Look, I think we are a little bit too old for this. Let's face each other again."
Obviously, he was one of a kind. "There can never be anything like him again," Mr. CRANSTON said. Yet, he always remained current. Ms. BURKA said he had the mind of a 25-year-old. And he had a Genghis Khan-like character that survived being booted out of the cricket club by a group that didn't understand his significance, according to Mr. CRANSTON. "It was like taking the goldfish out of the goldfish bowl. To a normal person, that would have been the death rattle. But COLSON rose from the ashes, went to the Granite Club and spawned this Patrick CHAN, this hot little thing."
The diamond in his crown was Sarah KAWAHARA, who studied with the coach when he set up the Banff Fine Arts skating school in 1960. Ms. KAWAHARA went on to become one of the great choreographers in the sport, winning an Emmy for her work on the opening and closing ceremonies at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics and another for Scott Hamilton's television special, Upside Down. She also was responsible for Mr. Hamilton's successful skating career.
Ms. KAWAHARA, who took the red-eye flight last night from Los Angeles so she could attend the funeral today, said of Mr. COLSON: "He formed me. Mr. C showed me the path, and he was also the source of great inspiration and strength. He's responsible for everything I've done in my life and career. He was not just a skating teacher but a teacher of life."
Over the years, Ms. KAWAHARA and Mr. COLSON kept in touch at least every two weeks. "It's very difficult to know that I can't call him any more," she said.
Like Ms. KAWAHARA, Mr. COLSON's skaters always had "infinite class," Mr. CRANSTON said. "They were a cut above the others."
His work, Mr. CRANSTON said, should have been on the Broadway stage, not the ice rink. He's watched many COLSON products in skating shows and "my mouth would drop open," he said. "They were so great. That kind of skater cannot ever exist again because there aren't any other COLSONs to produce it."
Mr. COLSON's last master project was Patrick CHAN, a Toronto skater who glides over the ice with great speed and wonderful edges -- all COLSON hallmarks. Mr. COLSON predicted that Mr. CHAN, who is just 15, would make a splash at the 2010 Olympics and that he'd try to stick around to guide him there.
But all was not well with Mr. COLSON in the past year. He ended up in hospital for nine weeks with an infection after a youngster on a bicycle collided with him. Somehow, he talked his doctors into letting him out of the hospital for a weekend. Instead of resting, however, he headed to the Thornhill Summer Competition, where he coached Mr. CHAN from the boards. While he was in hospital, he designed the young skater's outfit, too.
The intrepid Mr. COLSON accompanied Mr. CHAN when he finished sixth at the world junior championship in Slovenia last March, but he was so frail that three doctors treated him there.
In the spring, he was involved in a car accident, breaking his collarbone and suffering head injuries. It proved to be his undoing. He underwent two surgeries to remove blood clots from his brain but then developed pneumonia.
The CHAN family was with him when he died. "Patrick said goodbye very close to his ears and vowed to skate his best for him," said his mother, Karen. "He knew Patrick had landed his quad toe."
It was a dismal day for Ms. BURKA, who at first glance thought Mr. COLSON an unusual character when she met him in 1952. For years, she had worked while facing him from the other side of the rink. They had a private joke, a pact in which they'd warn each other if their mouths had opened too wide. "It hit me hard that I cannot see him any more…. I had to cry.
"I enjoyed him all my life," she said. "It was fun to fight with him and to talk with him. Everybody is so boring. It is a big vacuum for me. I will miss him terribly."
Osborne COLSON was born in Toronto on March 31, 1916. The Canadian figure skating hall of fame member died in hospital in Toronto on Friday, July 14, 2006. He was 90. He is survived by his brother, James Hall COLSON.
