Sad story indeed


ST. CATHARINES, Ont. -- Monika Woerlen was a "living sacrifice" who devoted her life to family, her grieving husband told the almost 1,000 mourners who gathered at a funeral service Saturday to honour the 39-year-old mother and her seven children who died in a house fire last week.

That husband must be going through unimaginable anguish. Lost his wife and seven children in one night. The firefighters who tried to put out the fire were in tears when they discovered the bodies. How awful.

Speaking at the funeral, Marc Woerlen praised the police, firefighters and the coroner for their "tremendous service."

What an honorable guy.
