Dear Joan, Joanna, Miranda, and Augie's beloved family. We have just heard of Augie's passing and wanted to say that our hearts and prayers are with you. I had the joy of witnessing the wonderful impression he made on young actors, describing his choices and teaching them what is truly important in this art of ours. I will always treasure this memory. He lived a meaningful life, and his light shines on through you. God bless him, and God bless you.

We where very sadden to hear of August's passing today. He was Miranda's grandpa when I saw him at St Bernard and other activities. Miranda's was blessed with a great, involved, grandfather and I know the entire family will miss him. I have a great picture taken of them at field day and I will send along in a private email. The Knuth family sends out our condolences to the entire Schellenberg family.

Vichnaya Pam'yat.

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.

I always remember Joanna telling me when we were just kids what a great mother she has in Joan, stepping back from the limelight and focusing on being a mom so Augie could do his thing. I acknowledged that day how lucky she was to have the blessing of two loving and dedicated parents, whose generous spirit will always continue to guide you.
From my family to yours, wishing you peace and long life.

Love,
Hadley and family
