When the man upstairs calls, there is no fighting it. I know, because Augie was a fighter. He was put on this earth for a reason and those of you of first nation background had someone to emulate and lead. We humble actors saw a man with little education take scripts he could barely read and create powerful characters over and over again. He was a mentor to the young and old of the first nation and to actors just starting out. Augie was one of the few men who constantly gave, paying it forward and expecting nothing in return. What he got was a legion of loyal followers and friends. Joan, I know you gave up your career to raise the girls and guide Augie's so I wish you only sweet memories and may the pain of his loss quickly subside. Sophie, Reena and Joanna I hope the pain from his loss leaves quickly as you all made him a very proud father and he was actually happy the chain of just girls ended when he got a grandson, although he loved them equally. The man upstairs has bigger plans for Augie and he knows he can count on Cookie to carry it through, so even though he will be oh so missed down here, I know he is doing a gig upstairs and the next time a bird does a nono on your head, remember,it might be Augie saying, "Don't forget, I am watching you!!!" We all shared some good times together and I felt that Augie was my brother from the first time he teased me for wearing a navy blazer at National Theatre School in the tombs of Place Des Artes that October morning in 1963. I never wore it again. "Til we meet again Schellenberg and I promise to wear something else you can tease me about, maybe my Texas hat. Ladies, grandson and husbands, or significant others my sincere condolences.
