Goodbye August, I know you will do well in the next chapter of your journey. A remarkable career, a remarkable life. You really did set the bar high not just for the natives of north America, but for us all.

Our family knew August as his nick name Cookie, not many knew this over the years from my understanding, but when in conversation and talking about August with family about 35 years ago that's what everyone knew him by. August lived next door after his first marriage with his first daughter Sophie, where my Grandparents Marcel and Francis Roger would take her in and take care of her when August had to travel for work. Sophie became family, and so did August.

In one meeting about 10 years ago I had run into August and his wife Joan. At this point I went to say hi, and when he realised who I was, he turned to his wife Joan and even though I was in my mid 30's and standing around some of the greatest Native talent at the BBQ for the Canadian Film Centre in Toronto, she did not hold back saying she remembered me as a toddler and changing my diapers..

The last time was 2 years ago I bumped into August and Joan at the TIFF building, during the film festival, and the 3 of us went to lunch across the street were we played catch up on life, and discussing how he was up for a role in The Lone Ranger.

He will be missed...
P.S. August you should had gotten the role in the Lone Ranger!!

Dear Joan & Family...you are in our thoughts here in Stratford. Well we remember Auggie with smiles in our hearts from social times and joys in our minds from performances. This may be a Canadian metaphor but it's been important to us both when we've had family losses, so we share it with you: God gave us memory so that we may have roses in winters!
