Pte. Braun Scott Woodfield
"Braun did help people."
A tearful Beverley Woodfield, Braun's mother, said her son entered this
world just as he left it: "Far too early." Born prematurely and weighing
barely over two pounds, Braun was "sick a lot growing up. I worried
about that boy all his life," she said.
"But from the moment he was born, he was a fighter. He never gave up,"
"My Braunie, my dude, my bud, my Braun, you are my boy forever in my
mind's eye and in my heart."
Later, Beverley Woodfield wiped tears from her eyes as the Last Post
played. She stood alongside Lyndi Woodfield, Braun's sister, and Daniel
Woodfield, Braun's father and a former lieutenant-commander in the
All three wept as a parade of bagpipers played Amazing Grace as mourners
bowed their heads in respect to Woodfield. A Canadian flag was presented
to his mother. Three medals the private received during his military
service were presented to his father.
