Very sad story about the funeral of Amber Bowerman. Our condolences go out to her family and loved ones.
"Standing room only for funeral of Calgary woman slain by landlord," The Globe and Mail
A plate of assorted cupcakes was sitting on a table at the front of the chapel.
“It was one of her recent obsessions and the name of her lawn bowling team,” revealed friend Leslie Hedley, who presided over the service.
“She was like a cupcake herself. Light and fluffy on the outside but more complex underneath.
“Even now she has taken a tah-dah pose as she continues her journey,” she said. “May all of us raise a cupcake in your honour.”
Ms. Bowerman was the first victim in a horrifying murder-suicide in Calgary last week. She was stabbed by her landlord, Joshua Lall, who then proceeded upstairs and killed his wife Alison and two young daughters before turning the knife on himself.
Only one-year-old Anna was spared. She will be raised by an extended family member.
