Gentle and generous: Mourners remember B.C. mother and son killed in police standoff

 


Two simple wooden coffins arrived at the funeral in a red pick up truck flying an American flag.

A prominent union leader and local First Nations men carried the coffins inside a hillside church in Burns Lake, B.C, where several hundred mourners gathered Tuesday to say goodbye to Shirley and Jovan Williams.

They remembered the mother and son who were killed April 21 in an RCMP standoff as gentle, generous people.
